21  PostSecret Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by celestialxxdreams on: September 27, 2007 08:34:56 PM
I received another post card today.... alas, the secret must have fallen off during travel :-( but here's the picture of it [minus secret]

sorry for the REALLY bad photography.


okay, so the person whose secret this is messaged me today and told me what the text should have been...

it should have said "I love Bill Maher. He gives me hope."

I received THREE cards today.... not gonna lie, it COMPLETELY made my day after a 1 hour midterm + 5 hour lab + 1 hour lecture :-)

I keep telling everyone that I'm a lesbian, but no one belives me... especially my boyfriend.

I'm attracted to old men.

I tell people they can tell me their problems because i'm a good listener.
while that's true, i really just want to hear what they've gotten themselves into.

you're not the only one, I do that literally ALL the time. actually, I do it every day during labs... it's great :-)

here is the card I received yesterday :-)

it says "Inner Beauty? I don't have any"

my roommates and I were all really sad when we got this one :-( I'm sure you have inner beauty, everyone does.

so. I got one a few days ago and I was being a lazy college student and didn't post it...

but I got one today when I got home from my 6 and 1/2 hour lab, which was absolutely the worst EVER. and it pretty much made my day. sooo
thank youuu :-)

sorry for the REALLY bad pictures. again, lazy college student.

this one I got a few days ago.... it says "I keep telling myself I'm special  to stop thinking I'm just rare and weird"

this one I got todayyy [YYYAAYY] says "I'm 18. I've never been kissed..." and on the back it says "and I feel like I've missed out on a teenage experience."

26  Re: Post Photos of Your Tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by celestialxxdreams on: August 26, 2007 07:14:20 PM
ohh man. I just found thissss and I'm super psyched to look at everyone's tattoos, but first....

This is the tattoo I got for my 18th birthday in January [and my best friend's tattoo in the prom picture]

this is my second tattoo.. it's based on one of picasso's sketches of doves.

aaaand my third tattoo, done on the same day as the second one.

They were all done at Precision Body Arts in Nashua, NH... the first one was by Nick Kelley, and the other two were by [Angry] Al Benoit.

28  Vampire Land [IMG heavy] in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by celestialxxdreams on: August 25, 2007 10:18:15 PM
So, in Gothic Tales last year for extra credit my teacher assigned us to revamp/create our own board game. He did this while we were reading Stephen King's Salem's Lot, so my friend and I revamped Candy Land, and made it into Vampire Land. Don't mind the bad paint job on the actual game board....

this is the game's box... I put fangs on everyone, and blood splotches all over it...

I also painted the sides of the game's box.




in order to make it educational, we put quhttps://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=post;board=104.0
Start new topicestions about the book on the back of each game card, and you were supposed to answer the question before you could go to the colored space you got on the card....

I made a small purple velvet pouch [left over from another project] to keep all the game cards in... you know, so you can't see the question that you're picking.

all the answers to the questions on the back of the game cards are kept in this binder

the [badly painted] game board... lots of fangs and blood... plus we named all the "areas" on the board after places in the book.

and all the game pieces.. I wrote the names of the "good guys" on the bottom... because, obviously, the point of the game is to beat the vampires. [and my mean-looking kitty in the background... he's not mean, though.]

aaand that is all. :-)

29  Senior Project in baking?!? oh my. in Dessert by celestialxxdreams on: August 25, 2007 09:23:23 PM
SOO to graduate high school everyone had to do a senior project. and being the cool kid I am, I chose to do Baking & Pastry Arts [which I happen to be going to collegeee for]... so here's a bunch of stuff I made for my expo display  Grin

this is my whole display... still mostly intact [as soon as I was finished being judged a crowd of freshman came and stole my cookies :-(

these are my faaaaaabulous cupcakes. they're white velvet butter cake [cupcakes] from The Cake Bible, with the buttercream recipe from The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook. They are decorated with fondant flowers, gum paste flowers, sprinkles, and green buttercream.

ohh, and the little signs that say what everything is are made out of white chocolate. I melted the chocolate, and put it into molds. then used colored chocolate to pipe out the words on the chocolate bars. yayy

chocolate covered strawberries. milk chocolate on the strawberry, then colored white chocolate for decoration

marzipan truffles. I pretty much melted a pack of marzipan [4oz, maybe?] with 8oz dark chocolate. then I let it cool until it could be rolled into balls. they're rolled in coconut, chopped almonds, and cocoa powder. [the white chocolate sign there looks really bad... I was attempting to finish them all during my lunch block the day of expo... oopss]

this is apple walnut cake with caramel cream cheese frosting with extra caramel drizzle and walnuts for a garnish. all from The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook.

pots de creme... pretty much fancy chocolate pudding. with pocky and whipped cream for a garnish. I got this recipe from a Culinary Institute of America cookbook [it was more of a textbook, though]

this is exactly why you DON'T leave creme brulee out without refrigeration. it looked good before expo, I swear. recipe from Williams-Sonoma Desserts.

marzipan dinosaur named JESSE... like nessie.. because he looked like nessie. all I did for him was add food coloring to the marzipan [which makes it very sticky, you'd probably want to get powdered food coloring] and then molded it into dinosaur/nessie shape..... the "rocks" around him are all chocolate. like m&ms.

aaaaaaaaaand finally my beeeeeest friend eating the last of the apple walnut cake... you can also see a bit of the looovely poster I made to display all my work over the year.

I also baked about 5 billion White Chocolate Coconut Macademia cookies... but I didn't take a picture of them for some reason?

I didn't post the actual recipes, because I don't know if it's legal? buuuut if anyone wants one, just let me know and I can post it or message it or whateverrrr.

30  "pencil bag" in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by celestialxxdreams on: August 10, 2005 05:17:42 PM
mmyeah, so since I got my "Don't Date.. Craftsterbate!" bag and decided to use it as my school bag this year I figured I needed a "pencil bag" and all the ones at the store? they're WAY too "pencil bag"-esque, so what's a girl to do?! make her own, of course!

that's the outside of it... yayyy rainbow patches and rainbow ribbon...

inside without anything

the inside with some of my crap in it... I still need to round up all my sharpies... and post-its... and other useless things I need for school...

thanks for looking!
