Well I got my package about a week ago from my partner and everything was awesome! Laura, I'm so sorry for taking so long to post  Undecided I love everything though, so without futher ado... my package from my buddy, Laura!

Here is a shot of everything:

Here is some Pocky (there was chocolate pocky as well, but it somehow dissapeared on the car ride home.... weird?!) some Chai Mints, yummy! Rice candy, which is really good and interesting (it has an edible wrapper which I definitely thought was plastic at first... thought my partner was trying to choke me! Hehe JK) And of course, just in time for Valentines day... sweet hearts!

Here are the postcards she sent me: One from her university, one "The Rights of a Child" (she knows me too well!) 2 Hello Kitty postcards, and some really awesome edgy animated cards.

These are SO CUTE!!! Button stud earrings and.. yup, you guessed it! Threader earrings! (I have a jewlery obsession, so these are a perfect addition to my stash!)

I am also a big bobby-pin fan (how did she know?) so these were SO awesome. And they came just in time for valentines day! I wore them to work (with tons of compliments, especially from the students!) and then to the bar later with some friends. Again, a big hit. (Who would have thought this were a great convorsation starter?) The orange ones are not in the picture because they were in my hair when I took the picture.

Here we have two amazingly smelling candles. I wish I could photograph the scent. One is Plumeria and the other, I was supposed to guess. No such luck Sad But I love the smell anyways! We also have a blueberry muffin... in a jar! Awesome. And a wonderful duck tape flower, which my boyfriend thought was a pen and tried to write with, haha. And of course, some insense! Which also smells wonderful.

This is some of my stationary she sent me. Isn't it gorgeous? These are so perfect for me, and I can't wait to use them. Except knowing me, I will probably never use them, I will just keep them because I think they're pretty. Hehehe.

My favorite.... COFFEE! You can tell from the picture that I have used about half of it already. Now, I know my coffee... and this is some damn good coffee. Again, wish I photograph the scent...

And last but not least... my new robot friend!!! He's so cute and SUCH a great listener. He likes long walks in the park and old cheesy movies, just like me!!!!  Kiss

Here's an action shot (ya, he can walk!) I just hope he doesn't walk out of my life...

Laura, thank you again for everything! It was such a great package and I was so stoked on EVERY last item!

4  Sicilian Sideline Skewers - AWESOME party food! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by tisteeni on: January 26, 2008 04:35:17 PM
I made these for a cocktail party we had about a month ago. They looked really cool and they taste amazing. There were such a huge hit. They were almost all gone within an hour. Here's the recipe I got from allrecipes.com:

1 (14 ounce) can small artichoke hearts, quartered
1 (12 ounce) jar roasted red peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
36 (3/4 inch) cubes mozzarella cheese
36 slices thin pepperoni slices
1 cup bottled Italian cheese dressing
1 head Tanimura & Antle iceberg lettuce
36 wooden skewers

Combine artichokes, peppers, cheese and pepperoni in bowl. Add dressing; mix lightly. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Can be overnight.
Before serving, cut lettuce in half. Rinse; drain well. Place one half on plate, cut side down. Cut remaining lettuce into 1 inch chunks.
Thread lettuce chunks and remaining ingredients alternately onto skewers. Drizzle with dressing remaining in bowl. Insert skewers into lettuce half.

5  A very "Starry Night" collaborative work, oil pastels, by my students! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by tisteeni on: January 09, 2008 07:56:30 PM
I work at a charter high school with some awesome students. I have the pleasure of teaching weekly "art workshops" (every Tuesday at 11 am!) A couple of months ago I had the students do a collabortive piece with oil pastels. I took the famous Starry Night painting and made a grid of 63 squares and assigned several students a couple of random squares each. They made a larger version of the squares on 4" x 4" bristol board with oil pastels... and this is the result! It turned out FANTASTIC! I especially love this project because it shows how differently each student interprets color, line, and shape. What is "dark blue" to one student is completely different to the other.

I would love to give the students credit for this awesome project, but I know it's not safe (and probably not legal?) to give their full name. So thank you to: Carlos, Arlando, David, Ellarese, and Josue! (I also had to finish up about 10 left over squares myself).

I have the picture at home because we had to "clean shop" recently, and unfortunately a lot of the students projects had to be sent home or thrown away.  Cry This is one of my favorite projects so I asked it I could take it home myself.
