Those are pretty cool!  I love the organic look of them - they make me think of close ups of some microorganisms.  As for the tacky ones - wait to see if they may eventually cure.  If not, but they are still somewhat solid, just a bit tacky, you can try cutting them into slices or chunks (wear a mask to avoid inhaling the  dust) and then try embedding them in more resin.

Very pretty - I like the butterfly pin as a wearable piece of art that can also be a wall hung art piece.

Spring could be good - it would be fun to do something for the garden or outdoors!

25  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Gluten Free Raspberry Streusel Bars on: February 24, 2019 03:09:13 PM
Made these to take over for dinner at a friend's place.  Jim has Celiac's so I try to make desserts that are gluten free, and these are friends who used to be our neighbours, and one thing they miss is that I used to bake for them all the time.  I know they love berry baked goods, so I made these, as well as a gluten free carrot cake.  These were nice, buttery, with a nice bright berry flavour.  Fantastic with tea and coffee.

Raspberry Streusel Bars
Makes 12 bars (1 x 8" square pan)

6 oz by weight of GF flour (Robin Hood brand used)
2 1/3 oz by weight of granulated sugar
1/4 tsp salt
(1/4 tsp xantham gum if your flour blend doesn't have it already - Robin Hood has it mixed in)
4 oz (8 tbsp) butter, softened and cut into small pieces
2 tbsp packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup walnuts, chopped, toasted
1/4 cup rolled oats (makes sure they are gluten free if you want to keep GF)
6 oz raspberry preserves or jam (these were made using Smucker's brand raspberry jam)
1/2 cup fresh raspberries (or so, I may have tipped a few extra berries in)
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice

Full details on my blog if anyone is interested in trying these for themselves.

I could not help it - I just found out one of my favourite treats that happens to fit into the colour category is still available on-line.  I thought it was seasonal only - so I ordered it for my partner (and some for me).... hopefully it doesn't take too long to arrive.

Otherwise by the end of the week we may have to have the sender do remakes if they didn't have tracking on their envelopes.

Oynxnox sends to kwality570

Oynxnox's are coming from Canada to the US, so it might just be taking extra time, but maybe they'll be in my mailbox by the time I get home tonight.

I hope so!  I am ready to resend, but I feel I sent the best of the bunch in the package I sent Sad

I probably chose bright blues/greens - maybe a few more than that.  But I love blues - especially bright ones.  I love it so much that my craft room is Benjamin Moore's Tropicana Cabana and I have accessories in various tones of that - very bright, energizing and refreshing for me.  I love things like Labradorite for the flashes of bright blue that show up amongst the gray stone.  I tend to wear black and gray - and the chances are, if I am wearing a colour, it would be blue, or purple, or green.  If I am buying a paint colour - I am more attracted to things like iridescent blue-greens, same with beads...

They are my happy colours.

I received my last set of Coins from thanate and they are beautifully done ones with fabric and thread - using some of my favourite themes.

I love them - thanks thanate!

This has been a great swap - a nice way to start the new year of crafting!

I got my first monsters from Kwality570 - they are so cute!  I love the contrast of their cuteness and colour against the brown backgrounds, and her use of lining really makes them pop!

They are brighter in real life - I did not want to take them out of their protective sheaths so took pics with no flash.  Great shading and dimension on them too!

What did you use as the black liner?  It is so fine, but has such a nice texture.  Thank you so much Kwality - I finally have monsters of my own!
