1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / My newest polymer clay mini foods! on: May 01, 2010 07:58:37 PM
I am officially obsessed with creating polymer clay mini foods! Michael's having a sale on clay? I'm there! No schoolwork? Creating mini foods is what I am doing! Here is the latest:

2  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / My first needle-felting project..ever! on: January 01, 2010 08:16:43 AM

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / My newest Polymer Clay Cake with a Pastry Bag!!! Plus Black & White cookie Studs on: August 23, 2009 01:57:22 PM
I feel that each time I make a new polymer clay food item, I get better and better.
Here is a picture of my mini Chocolate cake with coffee flavored butter-cream, with chocolate shavings on top, and a butter-cream "e" at the top, for Elizabeth(that's me!).
I've even made a pastry bag, and I didn't even use a tutorial!
Though I have to improve on cutting my slice out of the cake nicely, so that my layers don't get messed up. Any hints or techniques would be appreciated!!

I also created black and white cookie studs. As a native New Yorker, I had grown up on eating Black and White cookies as a dessert.

4  COOKING / Dessert / To me, this is kind of like dessert..... on: August 17, 2009 08:03:24 AM
I got a recipe from the King Arthur Flour website for a Challah Wreath which requires no kneading.

I topped my Challah off with cinnamon-sugar, instead of seeds. This is how it came out:

So because of the Cinnamon-Sugar I'll eat it for dessert!

I also made plain ones as well:
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / My first ever polymer clay cake!!! on: August 17, 2009 06:42:15 AM
Here are pictures of my first polymer clay cake.

I used this tutorial, which helped A LOT!:

I know that over time I will get better and better, though I am pleased with the results of my first try.
I think I will glaze the decorations, and glue the slice and the whole cake onto a barrette.
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Quilling Mini Roses- My newest obsession on: August 07, 2009 03:03:59 PM
I've discovered the art of quilling! I love quilling circles and all different shapes you can create out of a strips of paper. But I love quilling mini roses even more! Here are some pictures!!:

I will be making this into a pin or hair clip. This is a picture of a quilled rose on a base I had made out of polymer clay.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / First attempt at Knitting a Food item! Need Help!!! on: January 18, 2009 06:03:18 PM
I started knitting a slice of cake from this pattern:

Everything is going well, until I get up to this step in the "That was easy enough, right? Now, on to the frosting part". It's the second set of instructions. I am having trouble with this specific instruction:

6. Turn the piece around, and making sure the right side is facing you, pick up 12 stitches on the other side.

I don't understand what to do. Do I flip over my piece that I have knitted, and stick one of my needles through a part that was laready knitted, all the way on the other side? I just cant comprehend what is going on over here. I've never done anything like this before. Please help, because I am wishing to continue with this wonderful project. This is my first time knitting a yummy item. Scarves just don't taste as good as a yummy piece of knitted cake.....mmmm
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help! I think I just messed up my project!! on: February 21, 2008 06:59:21 AM
So Im woking on a mock turtle neck from the teen knitting book. This is my first time ever making something to wear, besides for scarves. i think I messed up big time!
So it says Work until armhole measures 8 inches. Then it says to bind off 5 stitches loosely at the beginning of the next 2 rows.
So I just for some reason dont understand what they mean. Does it mean that I just bind off 5 stitches on one row, and then go to the next row and bind off again, or do I continue knitting on the same line I binded off? I'm so confused!!!
And so I did bind off on one row, after finishing the armhole, and then I continued knitting. But when I continued knitting it didnt come out the same at the other end, because I didnt bind off. So there is one indentation from binding off on one side, but then it's just plain knitted on the other.
Just so you know, I'm doing the front and back separately, so I'll have to knit them together.
What do I do? I'm so confused!!!! And if i made a mistake is there a way to undo a bind off. I've been working so hard on this piece. I hope I dont have to give up on it!
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Anyone know where I can find Chunky USA yarn from Lion Brand? on: February 11, 2008 08:30:07 AM
It seems that it is discontinued. But i really need more lavender from that line. I am so upset! I live in NYC, and I need to find some ASAP! Anyone have any we could maybe swap for? But I need it by the end of this week!!!!!!
10  COOKING / Dessert / Anyone ever create a chocolate showpiece? on: January 06, 2008 07:15:51 AM
