1  Mr.Radioactive in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by LollyPopRage on: April 07, 2013 04:30:19 PM
I started work on this rabbit yesterday and didn't finish him before getting caught up in the sims. I finished him today though, gifting him one of my many many beads as one of those "I'm sorry" gifts.

I tend to make everything on my right (his left) lopsided, reason his ear and eye is a little crooked. I added a tail (Magic ring and a row beyond) for balance and did his nose and whiskers with embroidery thread.
Pattern for these: Ravelry

Those are adorable! I especially love pinky pie <3 I'll surely have something to post before long. Took a "break" ended up spending 3 days playing sims x_x

Oh oh oh I finished something.

I call him "Mr.Radioactive" because it suits him and I was listening to Radioactive by Imagine Dragons while I was finishing him up.

3  Grandma's Cranberry Mold in Recipes and Cooking Tips by LollyPopRage on: March 11, 2013 05:43:09 PM
Been a long time gone, so thought I'd bring you a special side (or cool summer snack) as an apology.

Grandma's Cranberry Mold!
(Note: Thicker than appears in photo, there were cranberries hiding in there a layer below)

Do not be put off by the cranberries(honestly I don't like whole cranberries, but I love this dish and begged Granny for the recipe), this is actually a subtly sweet dish. Nobody tell Grandma I'm putting this up here, but the world must know! I have made this for Holidays and per request via Hubby. He's not a fan of cranberry sauce oddly enough, but this is just the right flavor for him.

You will want to make this the night before, it takes around 12 hours to set fully!

What you need:
~A nonstick pot (a 2qt is generally the size I use)
~Wooden or plastic spoon you do not mind getting stained (It WILL get stained)
~Measuring cup (with oz markings if you have it)
~Some kind of mold with a lid or plastic wrap to cover. I have a covered casserole dish(pictured) that works wonderfully for this.

~2 packs 3oz Cherry Jello (Or 1 6oz pack if you can find it. Black Cherry also works find, no fizzy/color-changing ones though)
~1 16oz can Whole Cranberry Sauce
~1 16oz can or jar Plain Apple Sauce (I have difficulty finding 16oz exact of this. 14oz will work too, or measure out 16oz)
~1 cup boiling water

* Bring 1 cup water to boiling in your pot.
* Ignore the directions on the jello packaging! Dissolve the 6oz jello in the cup of boiling water, do not reduce heat.
* Stir in the whole cranberry sauce until the sauce is completely melted.
* Turn heat off and mix in apple sauce, making sure to thoroughly blend it and scrape the sides of the pot.
* Pour mixture into mold or dish. Mold should be lightly oiled (drop or two of oil smeared with a paper towel works), but dishes/bowls need not be (I have never had an issue getting it out of my casserole dish and I never oil it down).
* Allow to cool slightly before covering and placing in fridge, let set for at least 12 hours.

That's all there is to it. My husband really gets excited when he sees me tossing whole cranberry sauce into the grocery cart, he knows sometime that week he's having it. Cheap to make and provides plenty. Also Grandma wouldn't really get upset by me posting this, I just like to pick on her hehehe

Here's a comparison picture to help you get an idea of how much this makes.

(I made way too much for two people Thanksgiving. I miss being home and having people to share all this with, or at least share the cooking responsibilities with! Had a ton of fun experimenting with leftovers and thankfully nothing went to waste save some turkey bones)

4  Red and Black Beanie for MSD {With Pattern} in Crochet: Completed Projects by LollyPopRage on: May 15, 2011 10:38:40 PM

My friend asked me to make a couple of beanies for her and offered to make a shirt/hoodie and a pair of shorts in exchange. Kuro has needed some new clothes for such a long time! This took a while, Most patterns I could find were for the Tiny models or for SD, or for knitting.. Ended up going along with a magic circle and increasing constantly until it fit him. She has the same size dolls as Kuro is so it was easy enough. I may have to make him one too! I wrote the pattern I made along down so the second will be much easier also if I decide to make him some. I made it loose enough to go over his wig easily without messing it up, I think it looks nice.

Beanie with stripe on bottom

Hook - F/5 (3.75)
Yarn - Worsted 9wpi (Regular Walmart bought yarn is what I used)

6st magic ring

R1 - {2sc} around (12sts)
R2 - {2sc, 1sc} around (18sts)
R3 - {2sc, 1sc in next 2} around (24sts)
R4 - {2sc, 1sc in next 3} around (30sts)
R5 - {2sc, 1sc in next 4} around (36sts)
R6 - {2sc, 1sc in next 5} around (42sts)
R7 - {2sc, 1sc in next 6} around (48sts)
R8 - {2sc, 1sc in next 23} around (50sts)
R9-10 - sc around (50sts each)
R11 - SC around, end in slipstitch (50sts)
R12 - Change color, sc around (50sts)

Repeat Round 12 until you have the desired length, finish off and weave in ends.

5  Betta Fish Figurine in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by LollyPopRage on: May 15, 2011 10:33:22 PM

My friend lost Jeramiah recently. She spoiled her betta, he lived in a beautiful tank with plants and bubbler, not those tiny bowls some people put them in. He was vibrant, energetic, and great company for her. I made her this to help remember a dear pet, friend, and family member. I tried to color this as best as I could with the pictures she had sent me of him.

Had a few issues with this, the paint tried to crack/smear while I glazed again..I bought some new paints so hopefully it will work out better when I make her a pendant of Jeramiah and Rose, her other betta fish, together. While baking it tried to flop over too, so I had to take it out, adjust it a little, and put it back in the oven. The bottom left picture was before I painted, tried to get as much detail as I could. She loves it, and I'll be sending this to her as soon as I can.

6  A Clay Lot {Image Heavy} in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by LollyPopRage on: May 10, 2011 10:27:22 PM
My hubby surprised me with a trip to a hobby store after I'd been looking at some crafts people have put together, since I have burned myself out of crochet. Here's the first batch of completed clay projects!

Individual details:

Let me know what you think! Sorry about the displays, I took over a forty pictures but because of their sizes the images were so blurred, so slapped the good ones on a page then added some borders and stuff to fill in space. Quarter used to show the sizes. Hope you all like them!
