41  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Tiny haunted house on: October 20, 2010 08:32:09 AM
I was in the tiny haunted house swap, and I made this for my partner. It's 4 x 4 inches, and mostly made from felt. I used an old photo for a "ghost bride" peering out the attic window, some scraps of antique lace for curtains, a skull, stars, and key beads/findings, and seed beads for door handles. I cut apart bat and pumpkin ribbons for extra details, and stitched details and textures over all of it. I hope you like it!


42  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / More Halloween Decor on: October 20, 2010 07:42:02 AM
I made a spooky picture to spookify my house, using a piece of flocked haunted house scrapbook paper, a torn piece of antique lace, 2 old keys, and an old door plate. I used more torn lace, some gourds, and a creepy pepper plant to add to the spooky factor. Cheesy

43  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / "Vintage" Pumpkin Buckets on: October 18, 2010 05:39:29 PM

I saw this idea in Cloth Paper Scissors: cover those $1 store plastic pumpkin buckets with plaster cloth to create vintage-looking papier-mache style pumpkins. It was fun, easy, and turned out great! I just covered them in rigid wrap and painted them with craft paint. Roll on Halloween!
44  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Spooooky wreath for Halloween & Dia de los Muertos on: October 12, 2010 04:16:41 PM
I made a spooooky wreath as part of spookifying my house for an upcoming Spooooky Moooovie Night. Spooky!

It's even spooky from the back:

45  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / PMC Crane on: September 24, 2010 08:57:27 AM
I took a class last night on how to make a silver crane using PMC paper. It was surprisingly easy to do, and fires in a kiln for 10-15 minutes. This is really fueling my desire to purchase a kiln! I had never folded a crane before, but I am happy with my results.

A lady in the class had folder over 1,000 cranes and hers turned out really amazing. I guess practice makes perfect! I'm definitely going to fold a few more paper cranes! Smiley
46  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Thinking of buying a multi-use mini kiln - advice? on: September 23, 2010 08:17:34 AM
I recently made my first fused glass experiments and I am hooked!
( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360140.new;topicseen#new )

I am considering buying a small kiln that can do glass fusing, pmc, enamelling and small ceramics for my jewelry-making adventures. I'd like to stay under $300, ideally, and it needs be usable inside my apartment with a standard 120V outlet. Does anyone have any advice, experience, or models they recommend? Thank you, oh wise Craftsters. Smiley
47  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / My first ever fused glass - 3 pendants on: September 21, 2010 06:47:08 PM
I tried a little glass fusing workshop and a local glass shop. It was so much fun! Now I *really* want to get a small kiln!

Here is the product of my first attempt. They are not perfect, and I didn't do the firing, but I am quite pleased and now I am eager to try more!

48  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Baked provolone "bacon"? Other interesting substitutes? on: July 28, 2010 11:55:58 AM
A friend of mine was telling me she makes fake "bacon" for her husband's sandwiches by baking sliced provolone in the oven until it's crispy. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds interesting! has anyone tried it? Any other unusual used of common foods you want to share?

I sometimes brush green beans with olive oil and salt and bake them until they are crispy as a french fies substitute.
49  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Looking for convenient sources of lean protein - ideas? on: May 04, 2010 01:31:51 PM
I am on a it's-not-a-diet-it's-a-lifestyle-change, and have discovered a serious lack of protein in my diet! My nutritionist is telling me I need a lot more of it. I am not a vegetarian, but I very rarely eat meat. I am also a lazy cook, and need ideas for easy sources of protein, especially portable things I can take to work for lunch. I have turned to eggs, but I can't eat tooo many eggs. Nuts and cheese and Greek yoghurt are good, but I also have to watch fats, so nut butters don't really cut it. I was happily eating tons of Morningstar products until my nutritionist brought up sodium. So...vegetarians, vegans, and meat dislikers, what are your go-to proteins on the go?
50  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Card Table Play House for My Nephew on: December 20, 2009 10:10:44 PM
I can't believe I actually got this done in time for Christmas! I bought the supplies last year for Christmas but never got it done. This year I thought I had better do it before he outgrows it!

I was totally inspired by this awesome Etsy seller: http://www.etsy.com/shop/missprettypretty?section_id=5577944  She sews it all, whereas I relied heavily on Heat n Bond. But I am very proud of my results. I hope my nephew likes it!
