1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Traditional, international dessert cookbook project =D on: November 23, 2008 07:53:47 PM
As an Aussie, may I offer you our Pavlova and Lamingtons as possible choices to represent our fair country?

Pavlova is egg whites and sugar whipped until fluffy and baked in a slow oven. The shell is crispy like a merangue and centre is a delicious sweet mushy cloud of yum. The whole thing is topped with whipped cream and fresh fruits (usually strawberries, kiwifruit and passionfruit). It is my family's first choice of dessert for Christmas time or any special occassion.

Lamingtons are sponge cake squares dipped in warm chocolate icing and rolled in dessiccated coconut. Usually a morning or afternoon tea treat.

This has got to be one of the funniest posts I've seen on Craftster!

Just been searching around for WoW crafts and stumbled upon this Cheesy

Looks great!
It reminds me of the dress Natalie Bassingthwaighte wore at the NRL grand final last weekend, see: http://nataliebassingthwaighte.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=462

Though, I think yours is much more wearable and prettier.

Look forward to a tute too - I need some help in doing something similar.

(edit because I'm a nong. It was the NRL not the AFL final that she wore it to - she sung the national anthem at the AFL as well. Oh and also coz I couldn't spell her last name - it's very tricky.)

AnnaMarie, where are you from? I'm in Oz.
Does your friend have a favourite team? Or does she play? I've seen some pretty tough looking girls from NZ who play (on cable TV) - I certainly couldn't - too scary!

Anyway. Maybe you can theme it around her team - all rugby fans I've seen have a scarf in their team colours. Team flag, mascot stuffie, some kind of noisemaker (whistle, inflatable clapper things, drum, trumpet?).
If she plays, make her a kit bag with water bottle, strapping tape, maybe a padded head helmet, electrical tape to keep her socks up, spare socks etc.

Also, since the World Cup 2007 is currently on over in France, maybe you can make her a World Cup survival box -
RedBulls or other energy drinks, so she stay up (it's on late here)
Munchy foods - choccies, lollies, chips, popcorn etc.
A team coloured bowl to put aforementioned munchies in.
Beers - if applicable (hubby always needs a beer or two to watch the footy) And a stubby cooler in the team colours.
Or hot chocolate mix and a team mug.
You could make her a mini rugby ball, then she can peg it at the TV if her team screws up.
And don't forget a rug or quilt to keep her warm in the early hours of the morning when she's still watching.


I'm currently working on a few Hawaiian themed boxes for our family for Christmas (we eloped in Hawaii in July!!)

Just another one saying that I thought it was real from the thumbnail.
Hubby just came over to see what I was looking at and the reaction was... "what the hell is that...I just made a meerkat!?! Coool!"
Now, can you do a mongoose, like what we saw at Hanauma Bay in Hawaii in July? (we're Aussies, we've never seen meerkat or mongooses before)

Pfft that's not a stupid question Ainadaliel... this is....
ArrghMatey, do you at all have the Ince family or some kind of German background in your family tree? Because I swear you look so much like my mum when she was young.
Other than that, I think this hat rocks.

8  UNITED STATES / Hawaii / Photography Schools on: July 25, 2006 07:33:05 PM

Just wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction for schools/unis/colleges that teach photography in Hawaii.

We're gonna be eloping about this time next year, most likely on Oahu (from Australia). As it'll just be the two of us, it'll only be a small, short ceremony. I would still like to get some photos though, and am hoping to find a photography/art student who might be interested in taking some for us.

Most photographers seem to have 3 (or more) hourly packages... 3 hours would be way
too long! And I'm not sure if I should trust those officiant sites that include a ceremony & photographer - are they really photographers or just the officiant's wife/husband/cousin/uncle/whatever taking some happy snaps?

Anyone know of a talented student who could spare an hour or 2 to take some nice, artistic photos?

Found it!


Dunno what their minimum orders are, but they have some awesome prints.

Cheers to those who tried to help...

While I think your TLSG project is awesome (and I too will be borrowing this for my brother's 21st ... next week!), I just had to comment that I love how your mum has signed up to reply to your <now featured> post!  Tongue Grin

Yay for cool supportive mums and Sesame Street! Oh and Squareone!

And what's wrong with watching it well into your late teens? Roll Eyes
