I've received from flyraven! She so spoiled me! I think she took the hardest things off of my list.  Cheesy

My 5 Themes:

1: Belly Dancing
2: Wiccan or Celtic stuff
3: Charmed TV Show
4: Zen
5: My Home Office with a tan & green Palm-tree theme

And I got....

A belly dancing poppet! OMG she's awesome and I love that sassy look she has! Her eyes are made from a polymer clay cane I think. She has so much detail these pics just don't do her justice.

She chills on top of my bed. What should I name her?

I also got...

A beautiful ceramic hand-glazed Wiccan offering plate!


Anyone else watch Charmed? It's the book of shadows! This one is a stash box for my candles and incense and stuff...

Oh! and I got...

Zen-inspired magnets...

...and a prayer bracelet w/direction to help me meditate.

Last but not least...

a bulletin board that perfectly matches my office!

and so extra fabric for making something to match.

Thank you soooooo much flyraven! This is such a special package, every item was a complete treasure!

Ok, I meant to post pics last night but... they came out terrible  Tongue. So, I took some better ones today!  Grin Grin Grin

Here is the awesome package from DinkyTiny! Everything is so super awesome! I'm going to tidy my apartment after this and put everything on display! Thank you so much Dinky!!!! Cheesy

My Vampire loot:

4 tile coasters
1 photo holder sculpture (Get your Wists ready, lol.)

2 magnets ( The one above is a vampy cape with  a bat, see below for the other)
1 polymer clay pen
1 black rose
1 silver necklace with black flowers
1 bookmark
1 embellished note
The box even had drawings on it!

The coffin and cemetery gate photo holder!

Elite wire wrapping skill, and pretty crystal and glass beads. Theres even a cross in the proper place. So amazing! The cemetery gate is also wire bound into the piece.

Vampy ceramic coasters! The two vampires are my boyfriend and I. My boyfriend wears a shirt and tie to work everyday. On Halloween he wore a matching cape and became "Corporate Dracula" lol. We laughed hysterically when we saw this lil guy,  and he's doin' the disco!!! <3 I shall treasure these always.

This is another inside joke about Valentino at work. He's riding his mighty Cockroach steed, named Justin Timberlake, through morning traffic! It's a magnet. ^_^

Holy Bible stash box! I thought about being ironic and storing condoms in it, but maybe I'll use it for candles, prayer books and incense...lol

Necklace (real Italian silver for vampire protection) with (crocheted?) silky flowers and black beads. There's also a cross bookmark with a shrinkydink coffin!

Her amazing drawing on the note:

I'm a little late with these additional pics, but my friend from Dallas flew in for a few days--so all we did was goof off and go clubbing. So here's the rest of what Sayomi sent me:

The larger items together--She painted me a cute Sailor Moon pic that I later framed. Also, when you open the Kagome purse (see my previous post) this is what is lining the inside---->

Pretty Kanzashi! I had drooled over her mad kanzashi skills before so she made me this cute hair barrette.

But wait there's more!!!

Other items from Left to Right: Perfume samples, angel buttons by one of my favorite fantasy artists--Nene Thomas, Tea Bag holder that says "Drink Me" like from Alice in Wonderland. I keep it on my fridge with a magnet, Sayomi included some of my favorite Lipton teas in it also. The Bow with the blue heart is actually made from serial cables, like what you would hook a hard drive to a motherboard with. I'm a part-time computer technician, and I always wanted to make something out of these ribbon-like cables. This one she made into a fridge magnet for my kitchen...which is like my temple at home, so I love adding stuff to it. ^_^ And finally the last item is the Shikon Jewl shards in a tube that are really pink bath salts. Very Creative!

Thanks again Sayomi! You've totally spoiled me rotten.

Sign me up for round 3!   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I've received! Here's a quick pick of me in my EGL waist cincher and Kagome lunch box purse before I went out to dinner last night. I also wore my new kanzashi hair barrette and recieved a tea bag case, a neat magnet made from serial cables and a sailor moon painting! I'll post more pics when the batteries from my digital camera are finished charging (they ran out shortly after this was taken.  Tongue

But anyway, I'm very happy with everything! Thanks Sayomi! Grin Grin Grin
I shall be sending on-time and hope that my package adds up to your leetness!

66  Roasted Cornish Game Hen, Stewed Veggies, Italian Toast, Tomato Spread in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Saturn on: September 11, 2007 02:19:56 PM

Recipe:Lemon Pepper Roasted Cornish Game Hen- a.k.a Personal Pan Chicken



1 Cornish game hen for each hungry person.

1/2 lemon for each hen

Salt & pepper

Nantucket Off-Shore's "Mt. Olympus Rub" (it contains garlic, rosemary, lavender and other spices)

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Chicken broth (or the broth left over from the stewed vegetables)

Non-stick cooking spray.



***Dethaw hen in refrigerator 24hrs prior to cooking.***

(1) Clean hen under cool water and remove giblets. Pat dry with paper towels and place in a sprayed baking pan. Preheat oven to 350*.
(2) Mix 1tbsp of Mt. Olympus rub with 5tbsps of E.V.O.O. Rub the hen completely and don't forget the inside!
(3) Squeeze juice from lemon half over the top and inside of the bird. Shove remainder of the lemon half in orifice.
(4) Salt and Pepper as desired and place on the middle rack of the oven loosely covered with tin foil. Roast for 30mins. Occasionally ladle with chicken broth.

(5) Remove Foil, baste, and continue to roast for 15-20 minutes or until skin is golden brown and juices run clear.


Serve with:

Stewed Vegetables: Chop red potatoes and carrots. Boil over medium high heat. Drop in 2 chicken bullion cubes.
When bullion finishes dissolving check the potatoes and carrots for done-ness. The potatoes should be easily crushable with a spoon and the carrots should look swollen. Drop in some baby bok choy and cover until cooked through. Remove veggies with a slotted spoon and retain the broth for basting the hen.

Italian Toast- Slice Italian bread and spread with butter and crushed garlic. Sprinkle with dried basil and oregano and top with mozzarella cheese. Toast in oven until cheese melts.

Tomato Spread: finely chop 1 large tomato, add 1tbsp E.V.O.O., dried or fresh basil and oregano, salt and pepper to taste, and 1tsp of the broth.


Enjoy! My man loves this! Maybe it's the feeling of accomplishment he gets from devouring an entire mini-chicken, lol!

68  World of Warcraft Nightelf w/mount in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Saturn on: July 29, 2007 11:26:39 PM
This is what 2 years of WoW addiction and a tacky tiger fur sculpture will make:

She is completely made from Sculpy and then painted with acrylics and then sealed. The eyebrows and shoulder trim are tips from a peacock feather. the "saddle" is a piece of shimmery nylon with the edges burnt with an incense stick.

yes...the pictures have been taken in my bathroom, which happens to have the greatest light source this time at night, lol.

69  Geisha Jewlery Box in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Saturn on: July 29, 2007 11:14:25 PM
I made this after I had read Memoirs of a Geisha. Then I abandoned the project after painting just the front and the sides. Then, the movie came out and I managed to finish the darn thing after being inspired by it. I just now got around to posting it here...so I'm a huge procrastinator. Anyway, the box is a wooden cigar box that already had feet on it and it was painted with acrylics using ton of clip art and photos for reference. It kinda all came together in the end I guess. My idea was that the outside of the box would show the tools of the geisha trade and the inside would  be a koi pond/waterfall landscape. Now all I need are some pretty kanzashi to keep inside it!

The Top

shamisen and tsutsumi drum

fan and sakura flowers

other side

inside view

theres koi swimming in there!

UPDATE: Forgot to add pictures of the back: Here's the teapot:

hope you like! ^_^

70  Egyptian Cat Goddess: Bast Dolly in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Saturn on: August 16, 2005 08:10:06 PM
I felt inspired by a few statues I own of Bast, the Egyptian cat goddess, so I decided to sculpt a doll of her.   =(^.^)= She is made of leftover sculpy, painted with a mixture of gold and black paint, and dressed with a few scraps of fabric and broken jewelry fragments that I happened to have around. She's been put together with copper wire and is jointed, so I may make her into a marionette someday. The cool thing about this project is that it cost me nothing. I was lucky enough to have everything on hand because I tend to be a pack-rat when it comes to craft suplies ^_<.

For those of you with dial-up internet, I am sorry! The pictures just didn't look good squished any smaller.


Pierced Ear:

Relaxing with my inspiration:


Thanks for looking ^_^

Another note: I also sculpted and painted the scarab pendant she is wearing, but it wasn't until I saw naked_ninja's scarabs that I was inspired to put legs on mine with the leftover copper wire. Thanks for being an inspiration and helping me spruce up my pea-sized scarab!
