1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: MMMMM Fried Marbles..... on: February 12, 2012 02:40:58 PM
It worked! These clear marbles came with beads I got at an estate sale. So, they were basically free and I didn't care if they got ruined.

I wondered, then, after they were shattered, if the cracks could pick up color. So I rolled them around in food coloring, and HEY LOOK! It worked!

Thanks for the great idea!!! I bet the color would be more brilliant if I'd let them sit longer, but this is after about two minutes. I didn't want the food coloring to dry and require scrubbing.

You've just given me the treat to make for my crafting group in two weeks! We technically get together to make crafty goodness, but secretly, we all look forward to seeing who's going to make what sweet treats! No one will be able to beat this! Thanks for the recipe!!! They look DIVINE!

I LOVE the maple burl one. You just gave me an idea for my pottery class ... I wonder if I can build something similar out of clay ...
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / New camera, new photos on: March 23, 2009 05:51:11 AM
I got a new camera for Tax Refund Day (why shouldn't it be a holiday?!). It's a Canon Elph 10mp. I LOVE it. It's my second Elph. My first one (all of 3 megapixels) died recently. And since I like to enlarge almost all of my photos, it wasn't the best camera. And yet, I spent WAY more for the 3mp than I did for the 10! Crazy.

So here are some photos. The yellow wildflowers were on the trail around Fort De Soto in Florida.

I love how I can finally decide what to blur:

My neighbor's tree:

Wildflower in my back yard. It's really about the size of a nickel:

And ... me! (Taken with the timer)

I don't want to say "give up" on the circle blanket, because it is nice to have. I LOVE mine. But it does take longer and longer to complete a row. I did mine in all double crochet. It got to the point that it was taking at least two hours to complete one row. Someone told me that was actually fast! I would suggest changing colors or stitches just so you don't get bored. Here's mine:

It's also nice and warm!

7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / So, I threw some pots on: February 25, 2009 07:33:24 PM
Every time I say I threw pots, everyone who doesn't do pottery thinks I was actually at home throwing pots and pans around the house. It's not like I have a temper. Weird.

Anyway, I just started a pottery class! It's my first time since the one pot I threw in middle school about 20 years ago. I threw these five pots in the first class. Trimmed the bottoms in the second class. Glazed the pots with royal blue and sardonyx glaze in the third class. And I got to take them home this week! Who knew that where blue and sardonyx overlap it'd make light blue?!?!

So, here's what I brought home:

My favorite two:

8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Mug Cozy on: February 19, 2009 03:38:44 PM
Thanks for the idea! I made one of my very own. Unfortunately, I forgot the buttonhole. Sad But that's okay, because the mug I use is massive anyway, and the added bulk of yarn (even though it's not bulky yarn, makes holding the mug really, really difficult. But, lesson learned! Now I'm going to make a mug cozy for a human-sized mug.

Thanks! I'll be sending mine up to Michigan to my cousin-in-law. It's a little warm for Florida, sadly.  Sad
