11  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / latest felted gift - a zebra on: March 11, 2007 01:09:38 PM
Okay, I gave this away and it is based on the Mathew Porter paintings of the alphabet which I LOVE.  She said she liked it so no stress on this one.  My friend photographed it and she does such a great job of giving them a life of their own. 

12  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / My try at a scottie dog!!! on: February 08, 2007 09:24:48 AM
I'm giving this to a friend for a B-day present...of course belated.  Wink  She has dollhouses and this is, I hope, to scale.  She's very picky so I'm not sure.  If anyone actually has a scottie and has some tips...that would be very welcomed!!!

13  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Blackheads be gone! on: January 31, 2007 09:38:48 AM
Okay, I was at a drugstore and I noticed they had salt scrubs for blackheads.  The prices were $13-$17 and I didn't like most of the ingredients since I couldn't read them and I'm super sensitive.  SO I went home and found a website where they said how easy it is to make.  Sorry...don't remember the website.   Tongue  Here's the recipe

FOUND THE WEBSITE:  http://www.10news.com/lorensfieldnotes/3032493/detail.html

Equal parts:
Oil (I used olive but she said it could be almond, grapeseed etc.)
Sea Salt  (she even made her own which I didn't really understand because she said to filter it but I have NO idea how to filter sea water.)

Then add your favorite essential oil (which is optional and by preference)

I did this yesterday in the morning.  I did use really good olive oil from Italy which might have made a difference. She also mentioned not to put it on cuts or where you just shaved.  I SECOND THIS!!!  I had some major pain on a small cut on my shin.  SO I don't think this is good for open acne but just black head problems.   Today I woke up with most of the blackheads gone and just a couple left.   YEAHHH!!!  Also, I just used a tablespoon each of the oil and salt so I used it all in one setting.  She said she could store it in a jar.  I'm sure it would keep great since salt can preserve and cure meat...right?

Thought I'd share. 
14  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / The chameleon christmas present on: January 12, 2007 12:01:52 PM
I did this for my friend and she was kind enough to take AMAZING pictures of it.  She has a way with pic's.  Smiley

15  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / I am obsessed with felting!!! (snow white, teapot, horse, mask & atc book ) on: January 02, 2007 11:17:55 AM

This is only HALF of what I did for Christmas.  The snow white was my first project after a bead.  I forgot to take pictures of the chameleon, charm and fairy forest I did for friends of mine.  Obsessed might be an understatement hee hee.

I just finished these late x-mas gifts:

This is an ATC book I made and added one I made and one from my collection to start her off. 

This is a welding mask for a metal worker artist we know.  My BF said he'll love it but I never know what guys like!

17  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Am I searching in the wrong place? on: October 01, 2006 12:57:17 AM
I was part of an art show of 12 artists and I've lost contact with most of them.  One of the artists had a "book" of quilts that were like little art jewels that she had done in a round robin.  She made the cover and then each loose page was done by a different quilter with many different techniques.  My question is...what the hell is it?  Is it a book, a quilt book, a journal of quilts?  WHAT?!!!  Not to sound too desperate (or whiney) Wink, but I would love to do this for a swap and have no idea who to approach and if there are clubs that do this.  I've searched and searched but I have a feeling that it's got a real name or something.  Anyway...thanks in advance.

19  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / my watercolor animation on: August 15, 2006 11:29:13 PM
This is a weird craft project but I really did it all myself and on a whim.  It took me about a day.  I posted this in the art gallery but I think it wasn't right either.  Here goes...

I was inspired by the United Commercial.  Appreciate any feedback.

20  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Guord Tortilla Warmer on: August 08, 2006 02:57:39 PM
Okay, I grew up in a hispanic neighborhood and my best friend was of mexican heritage.  They made homemade tortillas every day.  They couldn't keep us neighbor kids out of the tortilla jar!!!  Yummy.  I finally figured out how they made the pork and tomato sauce (god I'm getting hungry), but I can't find the guord they used to keep them warm in.  I've been all over spanish markets and the internet and I can only find the plastic ones or fabric ones.  Does anyone know what I'm talking about?   It had a round lid which was the guord cut perfectly and they would put a towel inside of it.  It could go inside the oven while the tortillas were being made.  When they went to Mexico, they would bring a new one back.  It seemed to last a long time though and were so pretty.  Could it have been leather and I'm remembering wrong.  It's funny,  I asked my best friend and she has no idea.  She doesn't even make homemade tortillas anymore.
