1  COOKING / Dessert / No-Bake CakePops! on: February 08, 2012 06:46:49 PM

I saw a recipe somewhere to do cakepops using cake recipe and then adding a ton of frosting, so I thought for those of us with less time and maybe wanting less sugar, I could do it with store bought cake!
Ingredients: 1 box store bought sliced cake of your choice (sugar free here is a third of the calories)
                 1 container frosting of your choice (for a white cake I use vanilla and a chocolate I use half
                    chocolate and half vanilla)
                 1 pack chocolate chips
                 1 dozen pop sticks

Step 1: Crumble up all of the cake into a bowl

Step 2: Add 1/2 a container of frosting to bowl (or a quarter of 2 different flavors)

Step 3: Use your hands to MIX the heck out of it until it forms a ball.

Step 4: Freeze for 20-30 mins until thicker consistency

Step 5: Form into small balls (Pic is batch done with chocolate frosting because camera stopped working earlier)

Step 6: Melt chocolate chips, place end of pop stick into chocolate, then place stick through bottom of ball. This will help hold the stick on

Step 7: Allow 10 mins for chocolate to harden at bottom of pop

Step 8: Dip pops into chocolate. I find it is easier to use a spoon full of chocolate and drag it around the pop

Step 9: Allow chocolate to harden

Step 10: Enjoy!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Twin thanksgiving skirts on: November 29, 2010 03:24:16 PM
I havent crafted much this year due to my twin pregnancy. I made my Bella and Kayla thanksgiving skirts to wear, since they were born the first week of Nov. The skirts are made of toule on an elastic. Super easy.

Quick tutorial:
1. using wedding toule, about 3" wide, measure the length you want the skirt, then double it and add 1" cut first set of 5
2. Take 1" wide waist elastic and measure the waist you will make the skirt for. Add 3" and cut it.
3. Tie elastic in circle.
4. Using your leg to hold the elastic (put it around the leg), take toule and fold in half over the elastic and tie it around
5. Keep going until it is all the way around the skirt

Here is what it looked like!

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Cell phone in Style... on: April 17, 2010 02:43:38 PM
Most of my crafts circle around my freakish obsession for Mr. Smee... well, I decided the upkeep on my blinged out Smee cell phone case was too much, so I got a plastic case and used some plastic pens... and viola! Mr. Smee... I cannot draw well, but he came out okay...

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tacky Turkey Day Sweater! on: November 21, 2009 06:07:28 PM
Why should Thanksgiving not get a tacky sweater? I say it should. I did this today out of an old, big sweatshirt. It is all in glitter. I used my finger to texture the glitter. Then I added my blinky lights to it. I may actually wear it! Oh, Tanya Turkey is made from my hand like you do as a kid.
let me know what you think!

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tacky Hannakkah sweater! EDIT: Now with action shots! on: December 21, 2008 06:48:10 PM
So I am in Medical school, and have a physiology exam tomorrow. For the holidays, our class is doing a tacky x-mas sweater day. Since I am jewish, and there are few tacky hannakkah sweaters out there, I decided to make my own!

I finally got my action shot! NOTE: All lights work, they just blink!

Complete with light up menorah, plate of latkes, and a dreydle
6  COOKING / Dessert / marble dessert pancakes on: May 27, 2008 11:06:57 PM
So I have ceiliacs disease, and therefore cannot eat gluten... problem is most of the gluten-free stuff stinks! Today I decided to try to modify a gluten-free pancake mix from the store and got a bit food-coloring happy...

basically, they taste amazing! All I did was add some vanilla extract and about a 1/2 cup of brown sugar baking splenda...oh, and some major amounts of food coloring...
since my mom hijacked my camera after my wedding shower last weekend, I had to use the camera on my phone (uggg)... so what you cant tell is that the colors are REALLY bright on the pancakes!


Thanks for looking!
7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Macro Entry- PAW on: May 08, 2008 06:32:19 AM
So I am really new at the whole picture thing... I just got the most awsome camera, and I was playing with the macro function. I have no clue as to what I am doing... but this is my puppy's paw.

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mr Smee Cell Phone BLING! on: April 16, 2008 11:08:04 AM
So I have been working on this forever! I darn near went blind with this one!
I am seriously obsessed with MR. Smee from Peter Pan, and a few months ago decided to use 5ss (pin head sized) swarovski crystals to put him on my phone...

Well, needless to say, it took FOREVER... but in honor of Ollie Johnson, who animated Mr Smee and died yesterday, I FINALLY finished it!

IN Progress

Let me know what you think!
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pro-craft-stenator... or swarovski Mr Smee insanity! on: January 22, 2008 04:12:36 PM
So my endocrine Physiology studying was taking a toll on me and I needed a break. Well... I am a Mr. Smee FREAK (Peter Pan), and I have wanted to put him on my cell phone for years but never had it together enough to do it... so this past weekend I finally did it!

I traced him onto my phone back.

Then I used 5ss (1.8mm) swarovski crystals to fill him in, which was PAINFUL!

Here is the picture next to it.

I still need to fill in the background, but due to MLK day, the mail is taking forever, and my background crystals still haven't arrived!

I have since cleaned him up a bit too! Will post when I do background... if my crystals ever come!

Let me know what u think!
