1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / I made my own cheese! (with tutorial link) on: March 27, 2013 12:18:45 PM
It's easier than you might think...I know I was a bit nervous going into it.  Something about pouring vinegar into milk is very unsettling, but the result was tasty and I will definitely do this again!

8 cups whole milk
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1-1.5 teaspoon kosher salt

fine mesh seive
clean kitchen towel
cheese press- I improvised and used a bowl, you can too

For more info, pictures and directions see the tutorial here: http://ladiesofcomicazi.com/2013/03/27/how-to-i-made-cheese-gromit/
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Super Hero Snow Globes (with tutorial link) on: December 26, 2012 06:13:22 AM
I'm going to straight up say, that this project has very quickly become a favorite.  In fact...some of the globes that were meant for gifts, may or may not be scattered around my home and office.  I just couldn't help myself!

This was a fairly inexpensive project.  Jars were collected (this was a great excuse to eat those last few teaspoons of jam or honey).  The only costs were liquid glycerin, glitter the figures and the tiles we used to raise the figures. For figures we largely used Hero Clix and Lego mini-figures, but I also grabbed one of those "Toobz" of plastic figures you see at Michael's.  It was mythological creatures and really came in handy.

And my Absolute favorite- Iron Man with Tree in a Goya honey jar:

3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Healthy Superbowl snacks? on: January 30, 2008 10:11:14 AM
I'm supposed to go to a Superbowl party on Sunday (which is funny since I am not a big football fan-though I enjoy a good gathering). 

I wanted to bring something yummy, but also kinda healthy since I am trying to be more mindful of what I eat.  Any suggestions for something healthy that won't scream health food?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Stiffening up a felted bowl on: June 04, 2006 09:16:00 AM
I recently knit up a felted bowl with some knitpicks wool of the andes (2 strands held together).  It felted quite well, and looks suprising OK, considering I made it up as I went along....however it is a bit more floppy then I was hoping, I mean it stands up on it's own and everything, but having it be slightly more stiff might be better.
I was thinking about trying some spray starch to give it a bit more backbone, but wanted to check first if anyone has had any experience with this type of thing.
Thanks much!
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Harry Potter-Order of the Phoenix zippy on: February 11, 2006 07:38:18 PM
This is going to be a big Harry Potter month for me....going to a Harry and the Potters show, and then throwing my sister a HP themed B-day party.  I decided I needed something to wear to both these events.  I think it came out pretty well.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Godzilla Party on: November 14, 2005 07:27:07 AM
Hi all,
My sister and I are trying to throw our boyfriends a Godzilla themed birthday party on Saturday (A little last minute with the planning, I know).  I was wondering if anyone has any ideas for quick and cheap decorations that might go with this theme.  So far we are thinking a Pin the Tail on Godzilla game....and really that's about it.  Any idea are welcome....Thanks!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Matrix Sweater on: May 19, 2005 07:00:13 AM
Hi all,
I was wondering if anyone knew of a free pattern for a "Matrix" style sweater (with or without holes-don't matter).  I know there is one in "Hollywood Knits", but I don't really want to buy a whole book-especially one that people have said is sized for the emaciated ;-)  Any help would be great.  Thanks!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting and Buffy...How to bring them together??? on: March 07, 2005 06:05:06 PM
I am looking to start a new knitting project and I thought...Hmmmm...how to combine two of my favorite things, knitting and Buffy (or anything jossverse, thought I have already made a Jayne Cobb hat-so something besides that).  Anyone have any patterns or ideas to share?  Maybe some of you Whedon swappers have some thoughts?
Thanks!!!!   Smiley
9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / How can you tell if a business name is already in use? on: April 22, 2004 12:48:31 PM
I apologize if this has been discussed, but I could not find anything in the search....
I am in the process of trying to decide on a "name" to craft under, a business name so to speak (Which is really hard!).  This has led me to a few questions...How do I find out if the name is used? Currently I am not looking to incorporate or anything big like that....just try to sell some of the stuff that has taken over my room....
Mostly I would use it to make business cards, a sign for craft fairs, and a website (I know if a donamin name is taken that is that).  I guess I am worried about picking something, and then finding out it is used somewhere else.  What are rules about that?  How have you all handled this delimma...Or am I the only one having it (and being ultra paranoid)?  
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Velcro and cell phone cozies on: April 19, 2004 09:53:35 AM
I have been knitting cotton cell phone cozies and using velcro for the closure.  I am finding that I loathe sewing the velcro.  Does any one have any suggesting for either making this an easier task, or an alternative way of attaching the velcro.  I know this is probably wishful thinking...but maybe....
