2  Christmas Hutch in Winter Holidays by MissingWillow on: July 06, 2017 08:23:40 AM
Seeing lindyv321's awesome Mini Christmas Scene inspired me to post a Christmas project I finished a while back.   This hutch came from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts and was very easy to assemble.  The top shelf has a tiny Christmas tree, some porcelain mice I bought at Disney World when they first opened, a book of bedtime stories and a snowman snow globe I made out of poly clay.  The middle shelf contains a jar of starlight mints I made from poly clay, a tiny tea set, a tin of Christmas cookies and a JOY sign made from painted scrabble tiles.  The bottom shelf holds a glitter house village made from poly clay.  The della robbia spray has poly clay oranges and nail art fruit slices.


The wreath is made from beads and nail art glitter I found at Dollar Tree.


The drawer opens and contains boxes of miniature Christmas tree decorations, including lights, tinsel, icicles and ornaments.

Pioneer9 sent me a Harry Potter alphabet themed card.  R is for Ron Weasley.  It's perfect!

Those are some pretty gnarly teeth for sure.  The cat cooking chicken is hysterical!  I received this beauty from gozer.  She sent me the most gorgeous sphynx cat.  It reminds me of a bat!  Those green eyes sparkle in the sunlight.

Look at this gorgeous sphynx kitty I received from curiousfae!  So beautifully colored. It looks so much like our cat Bindi. I love it, thank you so much!

7  A Big Improvement in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by MissingWillow on: June 14, 2017 07:21:48 AM
We've been on a spring cleaning binge for the past week or two and came across this print in our attic.  It was something our family inherited but isn't really our style.  I did a little research on it to determine if it has any value and came up empty.  We didn't want to get rid of it and didn't want it hanging in our living room.  I decided to figure out a way to improve it without damaging it just in case it is valuable. 


Here's what I came up with.  Grin  The dragon is an image cut from paper and is just laid on top of the print, not glued.  The frame holds it in place.  Now it's truly something we're happy to display.

Emilywilde sent me the cutest card... a sheep being abducted by a UFO in the style of Edward Gorey.  There's also a bat in the background.  She is the master of combining styles!  I love it to pieces, thank you so much, Emily!

9  Homemade Egg Rolls in Recipes and Cooking Tips by MissingWillow on: June 11, 2017 08:30:59 AM
Because of living so remotely, if we want something special for dinner I have to make it.  We felt like having egg rolls last night.  Luckily I found egg roll wrappers at WalMart so decided to give it a try.  It ended up being easier than I imagined. 



I started by sauteing shredded cabbage, carrots, minced garlic and sliced snow peas in a little olive oil until the vegetables were softened.  I would have included bean sprouts if I could find any around here. 


I added a splash of white wine, 2 T. oyster sauce and 2 T. soy sauce to the softened vegetables.  I was going to make veggie egg rolls but remembered I had a dozen shrimp available so I sauteed those separately then chopped them up.


I mixed a T. of cornstarch with a T. of water then added it to the vegetables and cooked that for about a minute until it thickened.


I added the chopped shrimp to the vegetable mixture and placed a few spoonfuls on a wrapper.


It gets folded up like an envelope then rolled upwards.  A bit of water at the top of the wrapper makes it stick to itself.  These were fried for a few minutes on each side in 1/2 inch of oil set on medium high. 


My favorite dipping sauce is a T. of soy sauce, a T. of rice wine vinegar, a splash of sesame oil and a clove of minced garlic.

Bunnyy1kenobi claimed me for two cards and sent me three.  How fantastic is she?!  She claimed me for aliens abducting farm animals and used a zombie sheep in the card which is titled: Uploading the Virus.  LOL!  She claimed me for HP alphabet and I got a D is for Dementor card to start my collection.  AND... she sent me a SPEW card that she made a while back and thought it might have a good home with me.  She is correct.  Thank you so much for these gems!
