1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Roasted Spring Vegetables with Balsamic and Blue Cheese on: May 23, 2018 10:36:03 AM
Spring vegetables are finally here!  I made a roasted vegetable medley with balsamic dressing for dinner tonight.

My inspiration came from harvesting these beautiful kohlrabi, carrots and beets this morning.

Rather than peeling the beets, I drizzled them with a little olive oil and wrapped them in foil.

After about 40 minutes in the oven at 350F the skins slide right off.  Super easy!

I sliced the carrots and peeled kohlrabi and tossed them with a few sliced garlic cloves, a little olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar.  They were roasted along side the beets.

To finish, I sprinkled on blue cheese and made a dressing of 3T. Olive oil, 3T. Balsamic vinegar and 1T. Dijon mustard.

3  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / ASIA / Miniatures shops in Asia? on: May 15, 2018 10:41:26 AM
I am going to traveling to a few places in Asia next year and have a question for you.  I purchase a lot of miniatures from Asia that take a long time to arrive here.  Things like mini tea sets and china, furniture, household items, etc.  Since I am heading that way, I am wondering if anyone knows of shops that sell minis?  The places we are visiting include Denpasar, Semarang, Phuket, Singapore, Port Klang and Colombo.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pee Wee's Playhouse on: April 21, 2018 04:02:44 AM
I made a miniature version of Pee Wee's Playhouse!  I mean, come on... who doesn't love Pee Wee?

Clocky was sculpted out of polymer clay.

Jambi's cabinet is made from a small shadow box.

Mr. Window is crafted from a laser cut window, scrapbook paper, a miniature window pull and googly eyes.

Cardstock and more googly eyes make up the flowers that announce the King of Cartoons.

Chairy is needle felted with teddy bear eyes and fake eyelashes.  If you'd like to see the tutorial, it's at http://gslcuts.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/the-secret-word-is-fun.html

5  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Rainbow Pasta Con Aglio e Olio on: April 01, 2018 05:47:32 AM
Also known as rainbow pasta with oil and garlic. 

If you have spaghetti, garlic, olive oil, salt and food coloring in your house you can make it right now!

Cook the pasta per package instructions and saut sliced garlic in olive oil.  While those are cooking,  add about a teaspoon of water in as many sandwich bags as you want colors of pasta.  I then added about 20 drops of food coloring into each one.

Drain the pasta and divide it among the sandwich bags.

Assemble and enjoy!
6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Fairy Bread on: April 01, 2018 04:17:04 AM
As someone who loves to cook, I like to research the most popular dishes across the world.  Were planning to visit Australia later this year so I started looking into their favorite foods and came across Fairy Bread.  Heres my version.

We didnt have any white bread in the house so I used a slice of sourdough.  The traditional recipe calls for white bread, butter or margarine and hundreds and thousands which we know as sprinkles.

Its just as delicious as it looks.   Cheesy
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / VHS Rental In Miniature on: March 06, 2018 05:18:39 AM
I made a Miniature VHS rental shelf using a 1:12 scale bookshelf from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts because... why not?   Cheesy  The cassettes were made from dollhouse bricks, black paint and printed covers. 

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Harry Potter Advent Calendar on: February 18, 2018 09:48:52 AM
I made this Harry Potter advent calendar for a friend and love how it came out.  The drawers feature photos of favorite characters and scenes.

The center image is a lovely winter scene of Hogsmeade.

I added some sparkly glittered chipboard snowflakes.

The best part?  I also made a wizard's cabinet and 24 tiny little Harry Potter related items to go in each drawer, including a Marauder's Map, a Quibbler, a pair of glasses, spell ingredients and a photo of Ginny in her quidditch uniform.  Thanks for checking it out!
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / A Tiny Glitter Village on: February 05, 2018 11:40:18 AM
We enjoy having a few winter decorations up for a month or two after the holidays.  I adore a glitter village but have no place to set one up so I decided to make one in miniature using the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Tiny Plant Table and Snowflake Minis.  The houses and trees are made from polymer clay and nail art decorations, then dipped in micro glitter.  A super fun project!

10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Love Bird Owls on: October 06, 2017 12:24:16 PM
I just love this embroidery design I got from Urban Threads, and decided to use it on an orange linen kitchen towel in keeping with an autumn/Halloween kitchen theme.
