4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Good pot for toffee? on: July 03, 2011 03:13:00 AM
i was wondering if anyone knew of a good brand of pots that is good make making toffee because the current pan i'm using is burned on the bottom because the toffee needs to get to such a high temperature. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Harry Potter inspired Chess set on: July 03, 2011 03:08:46 AM
For the recent Harry Potter swap one of the requirements was a toy/game. So for my game i made my partner a chess set inspired by Harry Potter. The board wood burned into the top of a wooden cigar style box. One set of pieces are one inch squares and the other set is one inch circles. Each game piece had a harry potter symbol representing a chess piece burning in to them. I also burned "GRYFFINDOR" into the front of the box since that is what house my partner was from. I also sewed a small black pouch to keep the pieces in with the gryffindor lion in gold paint on it. Then there was also a legend explaining which harry potter symbol represent which chess piece.




Contents pouch and legend:

7  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / True Blood Swap Round 5: Sign Ups CLOSED, SEND OUTS EXTENDED AUGUST 16 on: June 20, 2011 04:19:09 PM
True Blood Round 5

Sendouts have been extended to August 16

This is a relatively small swap (4 points), but that's just enough to cover that Merlotte's tshirt you've been desperate for. Or the latest copy of Lafayette's recipe book complete with bitchy quotes, or even that cuddly Eric you want to erm...show off Wink All groups are welcome, as are those that prefer the books to the TV series.

To prevent flakers (or try to at least) I'm making it a requirement that you either post in the thread once a week (even if it's a 'still here!' post) or PM me just so we can see if anyone drops off the planet before send outs. I'd also ask that you don't send unless you've 'seen' your partner online that week - if you're not sure, contact me and I'll check. I know there are a few newbie swappers who are interested in signing up so again, if you're not sure on something, please ask! Some of the swap rules and regs can seem really daunting and a bit limiting initially, but honestly they're not, they're just to make sure everyone comes out happy (and full of Eric love Kiss)
