1  COOKING / Dessert / Jam filled butter cookies! on: January 14, 2012 06:32:06 PM
Today I made jam filled butter cookies... from scratch. It was actually really easy and they turned out great! I got the recipe from http://allrecipes.com/recipe/jam-filled-butter-cookies/ and filled them with raspberry preserves.

2  COOKING / Dessert / Cake in a Mug. Cooked in the Microwave. Awesome! on: January 06, 2012 07:16:26 PM
This is the cake I made, in a mug, with the microwave. (Isn't that the coolest thing ever!) The cake recipe is from http://be-it-ever-so-humble.blogspot.com/2010/02/lemon-mug-cake.html. I added a lemon glaze. I made the glaze by mixing the juice of half a lemon and about two and a half spoon fulls of powdered sugar (a regular kitchen spoon, not a table spoon, or teaspoon).

Here it is with the glaze and a garnish.

Here is the cake before it came out of the mug.
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Blankie Bear on: August 17, 2011 03:14:39 PM
Here is another toy for my yet-to-be-born nephew. It's what I am going to call his Blankie Bear.
It comes with detachable blankie. I think I am going to have to make a few more things for the little bear to hold before I mail it to my sister. Maybe even a tiny blankie bear.

4  COOKING / Dessert / Jar Pies, Pies in Jars, 16 oz of Pie Goodness! on: July 02, 2011 05:43:50 PM
Today I was inspired by http://blogs.babble.com/family-kitchen/2011/06/20/cherry-and-blueberry-star-pies-in-jars/
I took my regular apple pie recipe, divided it into thirds, and made PIES IN JARS!
I used 16 oz canning jars.

I just preheated the oven and a cookie sheet to 400. Place the jars on the cookie sheet. It took about 20 min. less than this recipe normally takes. Half way through I rotated the jars. I watched until the crust was turning golden brown and the filling was bubbling.

5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Cam Stuck Singer 401A on: June 19, 2011 08:56:30 AM
My mom just gave me my grandmother's Singer 401A. It sews like a dream! There is only one problem, I can't get the cam out. I have done what the manual says (turn the dial off of 'special'and have the red lever in the middle position) but it just won't come out. Does anyone know any tricks to getting it out?
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Owl plush on: June 02, 2011 06:53:25 PM
I made an owl plush for my nephew!
Here it is.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Way to big shirt to a cute little skirt! on: May 29, 2011 04:40:26 PM
I was browsing craftgawker today and saw this http://makebakeandtake.blogspot.com/2011/04/our-bodies-get-bigger-and-our-hearts.html
I had a way to big shirt that I have been debating on what to do with. So I decided to give it a try.
Here you go:

Sorry the photos aren't that great. My husband begrudgingly left his game of Wii golf to take these pictures. Wink
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / My own little patch of grass on: May 08, 2011 03:01:25 PM
Last August my husband and I moved from our cozy little Arkansas town to a city in Texas for me to go to grad school. Apartment living isn't ideal, in order to make it a little more like home I built a little patch of grass for the cats (and me). Here it is! These photos were taken the day I finished the project. Two months later the little grass patch is doing great. Now I have to figure out how to mow a 2ft x 4ft lawn.  Wink

10  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Beautiful Boston Terrier Babies! on: May 05, 2010 05:51:26 PM
I made a pencil drawing of my parents boston terriers, Bo and Birdie, when they were puppies. Then I scanned the drawings and using Corel painter added color. Very quick and easy but I like them.



Thanks for looking.
