61  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Re: How To: Rub-On Tattoos, Metal Leafing, & Translucent Clay on: September 21, 2012 05:00:40 AM
That's pretty darn cool. The more I hang out on these boards the more I want to get me some polymer clay, it's building up to an obsession now.  Grin

I made a huge batch of my mom's everything soup. After dinner I still have about 5 liters of soup to freeze. Tongue

This is what I used. Everything except the sausage and celery (any kind of celery, really) are totally optional, this is what I had lying around.

1/2 knob celery
2 large onions
7 carrots
2 handfuls of shredded cabbage
3 spicy sausages (I used chorizo)
4 cloves of garlic
1 big bunch of leafy greens
2 cans worth of home cooked kidney beans (another thing that freezes well!)
1 tbsp oil
chili paste
paprika powder
2 stock cubes (optional)

Dice up all your veggies except the leafy greens and stick them in a pot with some oil and the sausage. Add garlic and some spices, you can adjust the flavour later but a little bit helps make the veggies tasty. Fry the veggies in the pot for a few minutes. Add water, enough to cover and then some, you want room for the leafy greens and beans later. Add stock if you want and bring to a boil. Boil until your veggies are soft, taste and season some more if necessary, add beans and leafy greens and boil for another 2 minutes. Serve with some nice bread and cheese, if you like.
63  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / The Wall of Hats on: September 19, 2012 02:05:45 PM
I'm not entirely sure this counts as a crafty thing since I haven't really made anything (except one of the hats! <3), but here we go.

I have a lot of hats. I don't know why exactly, I've only bought two or three of them, but for some reason people see me wear a hat, assume I like hats and give me another. It's a whole thing now, whenever someone comes home from vacation I get a local hat as a souvenir. So since I don't have nearly enough paintings or posters to fill the house, I decided to show some of them off instead! I painted some nails to match the wallpaper (so I can take a hat down without it looking too odd) and stuck them on the wall.

The first hat is my granny's, the second is from Venice, the third is my graduation cap, the cowboy hat is from San Antonio, the next one is a homemade newsboy cap, the straw hat is from Curaao and the white hat is a thrift store find.

Excellent stuff, I'm on a hunt for steampunk prettiness as well. I really love the aged ones, did you print them out like that or is it some sort of tea dip and splatter process?

(If you ever have time to make a tutorial I'd be all over it...  Grin )

Oh, sweet! I have an on-again off-again relationship with bulk cooking. Right now my freezer is stuffed with berries and mushrooms, but there's still space for a meal here and there.

My tip is to store meat in marinade in the freezer. Whenever I buy meat it tends to be way too much for two people at once, so I slice it all up and put my steaks in separate freezer bags along with marinade. Then when I want some I pull out as many as I like before I go to work, come home, fry for a few minutes on each side and it's delicious... O.o
66  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Netted Mobius Scarf with matching fingerless gloves on: September 10, 2012 01:59:40 PM
Hmm, I can't see them either now. That's strange, I uploaded them directly to craftster. Let's see if I can fix that...

edit: It seems the picture uploader received more upgrades than I noticed, they've got an automatic size inside the link now. ^^
67  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / tiny flower earrings on: September 10, 2012 02:12:08 AM
I made the smallest project in history, I think  Grin

It's just two little flowers made up of 5 loops around a ring. I didn't even trim the tassels and I think I used about a foot of bubbly yarn for each.

I think Saint Expedius would be a very fitting saint for my craft room wall. Would I be terribly selfish to suggest you should start selling prints of this? Smiley I mean it only as the best of compliments, of course.

For the carrots and corn, why don't you make soup? They're fairly neutral veggies, should go well in a lot of recipes.

Bananas, hmm... Lots of smoothies, of course.

I'm absolutely in love with the red one. Is the embroidery on that all yours as well?
