1  COOKING / Dessert / chocolate peppermint cupcakes on: March 01, 2008 02:29:10 PM
From the book cupcakes! by Elinor Klivans (I love that book).

These cupcakes were a big hit both times I have made them - they fall apart a little easily though.  I used candy canes for these, last time I used crushed peppermint candies.  I like the way the candy canes look better - and it's easier than trying to crush peppermint candies  Tongue

I made this cheesecake for my mom to take to work  Grin  It was inspired by the rainbow cheesecake technique.

3  COOKING / Dessert / orange-cranberry cupcakes on: January 17, 2008 01:42:29 PM
These are the orange-glazed cranberry spice tea cakes from the book cupcakes! by Elinor Klivans.  They are really good...the only annoying part is chopping up all the cranberries.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / button phone charm :D on: September 17, 2007 04:35:39 PM
I just lost my monkey phone charm today Sad  and I'm already missing it.  I couldn't bear to let my phone go around naked any longer, so I made one from some buttons I used for a bracelet a long time ago!  It was super easy to make, the entire thing probably took less than 2 minutes.

happy phone!


action shot...yay!

Here are some felt mascots my mom and I made from The Cute Book by Aranzi Aronzo

Monkey, Pinky, Sprite, and Squirrel! 

My mom made Pinky, and I made the other three.  All of these are from patterns in the book, but I think I might try to make up my own pattern for one.  there are a few more pics on my blog Smiley
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / a hat just in time for valentine's day on: February 07, 2007 12:02:25 PM
Someone had posted the heart hat from knit.1 (I think) here a while ago, and I knew I HAD to make it. 

It was an easy and quick knit, and I love how it turned out!!

I made two hats this week  Grin

The first one is the Tychus hat from knitty.com.  I made it for a friend at school, and I'm actually done with it waaaay before his birthday!

The next one is the kittyville hat from SnB, but without the ears.  I really like this hat, I think I'm going to wear it a lot!

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / a quartet of bracelets on: August 15, 2006 02:04:08 PM
I made these 4 bracelets recently:

my friend and I saw some button bracelets at Claire's and thought "hey, we could make that!"  so we did.   Grin  the one with the big buttons is the first one I made with some random buttons that my Nana had.  The other three are a gift for my friend's birthday...amazingly they're only about a month late!! the non-button one is made out of crayons!
