1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Cupcakes x6 varieties [pic heavy] on: October 21, 2006 05:08:11 PM
These are all from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. My favorite book ever! I've made about 8 batches of cuppers in the last week.
Here they are:
Strawberry Tallcakes
Perfectly flavored basic vanilla cupcakes that melt in your mouth filled with gooey strawberry sauce and fluffy whipped buttercream frosting. Topped with more frosting and a strawberry half. Amazing.

Chocolate Mint Cupcakes
Peppermint-y chocolate cupcakes topped with minty buttercream with a dollop of smooth chocolate ganache.
Smores Cupcakes
Soft cinnamon cupcakes with smashed graham crackers folded in, filled with fluffy buttercream and topped with more buttercream, chocolate shavings, and a piece of graham cracker.

Elvis Cupcakes
Very banana-y cupcakes, perhaps too banana-y for me, but with an amazing texture. Topped with a swirl of peanut butter frosting and adorned with ganache.

Mini Peanut Butter Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
Tiny peanut butter dominated cupcakes with peanut chunks scattered throughout topped with a swirl of chocolatey buttercream frosting.

Halloween Marble Cupcakes
Marble cupcakes with a dose of orange food coloring added to the vanilla cake batter, topped with orange fluffy buttercream and drizzled with spider venom (ganache). Spider is not vegan.

Cherry Chocolate Creme Cupcakes
Rich chocolate cupcakes filled with cherry sauce, fluffy buttercream, and topped with more buttercream and cherries. Mmmm...

They're all delicious and 100% cruelty-free!! My favorite (so far) are the strawberry tallcakes and chocolate cherry creme.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Polka Dot Homecoming Dress! on: October 06, 2006 02:21:17 PM
This year I made my own homecoming dress-in two days! It was really frusterating picking out all the materials. I could not find white with black polka dot fabric anywhere (3 or 4 stores!) except this shitty canvas-y material at walmart. I had some of the perfect fabric at home, but I didn't think I had enough. But I did so it was all good with the fabric. Black and white polka dots + black stretchy material + gold eyelets + black ribbon + 10.5 yards of black and white tulle = awesomeness.
My favorite part is the corset back, so I'll start with that. *swoon*

I like this picture because you can't see my face. Clicky on it for a close-up of the lace-up goodness.

Sitting at the fireplace...I actually like this one.


Drakey and me. He will never look at the camera.

Trying to coax Drake with a treat, but alas! no avail.

 Well, at least he'll look at me. It's near impossible to get my baby to sit still.

 The bright red lips are courtesy of Ecco Bella FlowerColor Lipstick in Primrose, which is very awesome. And Almay Liquid Eyeliner in Black.

I had too much fun at the dance, woo! My feet were very painful the next day though.

Oh, and the theme was Willy Wonka. I helped decorate the art hallway. Making gigantic candy corns and cupcakes was fun.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / New Green Bag/Purse with Appliques and D-rings on: August 14, 2006 06:16:07 PM
Last week I made a new purse for this year, much bigger than my old one, and so friggin' adorable. The solid green is denim, and the greenish yellowish print is canvas-y material. I sewed on an applique I made and the little squares of fabric.

The inside has two pockets and three pen/pencil holders.

The bag closes with two D-rings. I made the "pattern" and designed it myself, it's a basic lined tote bag with the addition of pockets, pencil holders, appliques, and D-ring closure system. The dimensions are about 14x15". Of course now the left side is covered in buttons, but I took a picture before I did that.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Teal Tiered Dress with Black waistband [now with tutorial, pg 2] on: August 02, 2006 01:38:49 PM
I just finished this dress this morning. I'm in love with it already! I've had this fabric for about a year and I saw a cute dress that inspired me to make it. My first intention was to make a straight tubetop-like top with straps made of braided fabric, but after hours of frustration and puckering of the fabric, I just took a shirt out of my closet and traced the top half to use for my dress. I wasn't intending for it to look exactly like the original picture, but it looks pretty darn close with the new top. I didn't use a pattern aside from the shirt.

The black waistband is removable. I thought it complemented the dress and added a little somethin' to an otherwise all one color dress.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Greey Flowy Earthy Skirt on: July 27, 2006 09:58:46 AM
I just got motivated to start sewing again and I'm glad I did. I modified McCalls's 4876 to sit at the hips rather than the waist, and I made an elastic waistband instead. I also shortened it because I do *not* have long legs.

I feel so flowy and earthy in this skirt. It's like I'm a fairy in a forest.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Doggie Bag! on: July 22, 2006 11:05:55 AM
I made this bag for my pup to carry his toys, water, snacks, poop bags, etc, when I take him places. I also made a doggie bed and a matching ball with the same yellow puppy fabric (it's soo adorable), but I can't find them right now (yeah, I misplaced a huge dog bed).

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / "Wear Your Own Damn Skin" Shirt on: July 22, 2006 11:00:13 AM
I made this last night. It's basically the same picture as this: http://www.veganstore.com/index-store.html?deptid=17153&parentid=73&stocknumber=282-K&page=3&itemsperpage=12 but I drew it on a square of white cotton and sewed it on. Mine's a little more in-your-face than the sticker. I was going to make a more gruesome shirt, but decided I probably wouldn't want to wear it so I made this instead..Anyway, here it is:

I'm wearing it right now!

I forgot I ran out of black fabric paint, so it's permanent marker. I'll touch it up with paint when I get some.
It was originally a shirt with a pink superman logo, but I never wore it. I like it better now!
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / "Vegan" Stenciled Shirt on: January 08, 2006 08:45:37 AM
I made this shirt a couple days ago with silver glitter paint:

The photo's kind of blurry.
It turned out really nicely and actually looks professional!! Cheesy
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Fun Fur: HOT new scarf!! (and a neon pink fuzzy pillow) on: November 19, 2005 05:55:18 PM
This is my first post in the knitting board, seeing as the only thing I can knit is a scarf (well, a pillow too, but that's basically a scarf sewed up Wink). I get pretty creative with my scarves though. Here's my brand new fuzzy scarf:

I started working on it a year ago and stopped for a loooong time and I finally got around to working on it a few weeks ago. It's very fun to wear!
I made this pilliow a couple years ago and I thought I'd share:

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Lovely new skirt and top! on: November 19, 2005 05:49:16 PM
Hey I haven't posted in a loong time. That has everything to do with being busy with school.  Tongue
This skirt is floor-length and insprired by an overpriced skirt at Anthropologie: http://www.anthropologie.com/shopping/product/detailmain.jsp?itemID=6323&itemType=PRODUCT&RS=1&keyword=wickersham
I like mine better though.  Wink

This top is a McCall's pattern. It's really light and airy. I've only wore it a few times because it got so cold outside!

Thanks for looking!
