21  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Dead Kennedys Shirt on: December 23, 2005 10:46:14 PM
I wasn't exactly sure where to put this, since it's done with goo gone, not transfer paper. But anyways, this is a present I made for my friend for christmas. I gave it to him today and he loved it. I'll try to get a picture of him wearing it soon.
22  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Cheap Sex and Misfits Stencils On a Black Sweatshirt on: December 22, 2005 09:31:42 PM
This is on the back, obviously.

And this is on the sleeve.

It's a Christmas present I helped my friend make for her boyfriend. Yeah, I did that today instead of doing all my presents I don't have done. Oh well, I'm happy with it. I cut the stencils, and my friend put the paint on after I ironed on the freezer paper. We used some sort of fabric paint. The Cheap Sex stencil bleed quite a bit, which saddened me, but oh well. And both got some paint splatters outside the stencil. My friend was a little over vigorous with the paint.
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Candy Cane Striped Headband on: December 20, 2005 10:41:14 PM
I'm not sure if this is the right place for this. But I used an old t-shirt for the fabric, so I put it in reconstructed. Anyways, I decided to wear a christmas-y outfit for my last day of school, which was today. I needed a headband, but I didn't have anything christmas-y enough. So I made this:

and just because I loved my outfit today . . .

24  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Help making these into stencils on: November 27, 2005 10:27:13 PM
Alright, I really really hate to ask this, but I'm sort of stuck right now. I've tried and tried, and just can't get either of these pictures to look good as stencils. If anyone could help me out, I would be eternally grateful. And the pictures . . .


Once again, I hate to ask people to make my stencils for me, but I just don't know what else to do.
25  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Honey Recipes on: November 26, 2005 06:19:41 PM
These recipes are from The Silver Spoon Restaurant Cookbook Bakery Recipes from Duvall by a wonderful lady named Donna Beeson. She used to own a restaurant in my tiny town, which closed when I was 2 or 3 (it was in 1991). It was the most fantastic restaurant, and I really do remember it even though I was so young (they had the most fantastic cinnamon rolls imaginable. I'll probably post those later, they're also made with honey.) Anyways, I hope you enjoy these recipes.

9 square pan                                 350 for 20 minutes

A favorite with honey lovers!


   1/4 C. water

Pour water over

   2 T. cocoa
   4 oz. soft butter

Blend cocoa and butter and water. Cool and transfer to mixing bowl.

Blend these dry ingredients and add to cocoa mixture

   1 1/2 C. flour
   1/4 t. salt
   1/2 t. baking soda

Add and beat well

   2 slightly beaten eggs
   1/4 C. buttermilk
   1 C. honey
   1/2 t. vanilla

Bake in lightly greased pan.

Frost when cool with

   4 oz. cream cheese, blended with
   1 T. honey

One 9 x 13 pan 350

This recipe was created at the Grange Hall because so many people requested honey desserts back then (and alfalfa sprouts on everything but pancakes!). To eat these is to take a trip back in time.

Stir together, blending well

   1 1/3 C. graham cracker crumbs
   1 C. flour
   1 C. finely ground walnuts
   1/3 C. honey

Press these sweet crumbs onto ungreased pan, reserving 4 T. of the mixture.

Bake 12 minutes. Set aside.

Cream together until smooth

   1 lb. softened cream cheese
   1/2 C. honey
   3 eggs
   1 t. grated lemon peel
   2 T. lemon juice

Pour over baked crust. Bake 20-25 minutes.

Sprinkle with

   4 T. reserved crumbs

Cool in refrigerator. Cut and serve.

1 large or 2 small loaves 350

This bread was not as popular as the traditional but it was my favorite. A few of us requested it often. It is less sweet and whole wheat nutty.


   1/2 C. honey
   1/2 C. unsalted butter, softened
   juice of one lemon

Add, mixing well

   2 eggs

Blend in, and set aside

   3 mashed, very ripe bananas

Mix separately

   1 1/2 C. whole wheat flour
   1/2 C. unbleached white flour
   1 t. baking soda
   1 t. baking powder
   1/4 t. salt

Mix wet ingredients with dry.

Fold in

   1/2 t. vanilla
   1/2 to 1 C. blueberries

Pour into one large or two small buttered, floured bread pans (each pan should be 3/4 full), or make 12 muffins.

Bake 20 minutes, or until top is beautifully browned and a toothpick in the center of the bread comes out clean and dry. Theres no need to thaw frozen berries, but toss them with a tablespoon of flour to coat them, otherwise the batter and bread will turn blue.
26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / T-shirt I never wore to a skirt/tube top on: October 23, 2005 12:20:37 AM
So I bought this shirt at the thrift store that I didn't wear much because I didn't like how I looked in it.

I cut and I sewed and ended up with this.

Which can also be worn like this.

Sorry for the crappy picture quality. I had to take it in the mirror, and with the flash you couldn't see anything. This took me hardly any time. Like maybe half an hour of actual cutting and sewing. Tomorrow, I'm going to try to get my mom to take better pictures tomorrow.

29  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Sydney Thrift Stores? on: July 09, 2005 10:44:55 PM
Hi everybody. I'm visiting Sydney for about a month, and I would love to find some good thriftstores. If you know of any good ones, pleeeaase tell me. And I wouldn't mind recommendations for other stores and places either. But primarily thriftstores.

Thanks ahead of time everybody!

The lines aren't crisp at all, the fabric is all wrinkly, and I have no idea what I'm going to do with it (it's just on a scrap of fabric), but here is my first stencil.
