1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Upcycled Kitchen Towels on: May 29, 2011 03:22:55 PM
I had only a few hours before holiday dinner to prepare a gift for my grandma. So I ran to the store and got 2 simple kitchen towels. Then added some fabric and lace, and 20 minutes later, I had a gift!
That's the before:

And the after:

Tutorial can be found on my blog.

I've made them for my girl's 3rd b-day. I used the tutorial found here (http://lbbspassion.blogspot.com/2008/11/felt-woven-picnic-basket.html) for the basket. I will (hopefully, when I have some time...) upload a tutorial for the food on my blog soon.

5  COOKING / Dessert / Chocolate! on: February 28, 2011 03:10:13 PM
All you need is simple ice trays, dark chocolate (I used 52%) and anything else that you want for the filling. I tried 4 different fillings chili, pistachio creme, mint and coffee.

To begin, you need to melt the dark chocolate in a double saucepan (one pot with water on the stove, and inside it a saucepan with the chocolate). 100 g will get you around 10 semi-pralines.
Now wait a little bit, to let it cool, but not completely, and then pour the melted chocolate into the ice tray (I used a teaspoon). When youre done, you have to turn the ice tray over the saucepan and let the chocolate drip back. This way you get little bowls of chocolate in the ice tray. Put it in the freezer for 5 minutes and then scrub the leftovers on top.

Now for the fun part the filling. You can fill the chocolate with whatever you like, any way you like it. I cant really give an accurate recipe for the fillings I made, because I just added whatever felt yummy.

Chili filling (careful not to make it too spicy. Add just a tiny bit at the beginning, taste, and only then add if you think its not enough)
50 g dark chocolate
Chili (a little)
Heat it all together in your double saucepan until melted.

Coffee Filling
Some white chocolate
Some milk chocolate
Some cream
1/2 teaspoon instant coffee
Some butter

Mint Filling
Some dark chocolate
Some milk chocolate
Mint leaves
Some cream
Some butter
After you melt it all in the double saucepan, use a blender to grind it all.

Pistachio Creme Filling
Peeled pistachios
50 g white chocolate
Some cream
After you melt it all in the double saucepan, use a blender to grind it all.

Thats it. Now just fill it all, but not all the way. Then let it cool a few minutes and cover with some more dark chocolate. After 15 minutes in the refrigerator, its ready!
6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / New here - ceramic sculpture on: February 13, 2011 10:10:03 AM
I'm quite new to pottery and ceramic (a year or so) and this is my first sculpture. My inspiration was a sculpture I saw in a yard sale, but I just can't remember the name of the artist...  Embarrassed
Since I'm new to the forum, I can't post the pictures directly, but you can take a look here:
