1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Gluten Free Football Food! Pic heavy! on: October 04, 2011 12:07:18 PM
Hey y'all! I got this recipe from The Pioneer Woman http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/09/frito-chili-pie/ but tweaked it a bit to my liking!
I don't have celiac's disease but I've had "digestion issues" since I was in high school (seriously, I could clear a room). A couple months ago I asked my doctor for some suggestions about why this was happening and what I could do to stop it. She suggested cutting out gluten first and if that didn't work we would move on to dairy. This horrified me. I love bread. I used to eat it with almost every meal! My "last meal" has always been a pineapple and bacon pizza and a dozen chocolate chip cookies. I was almost hoping for lactose intolerance when I began my little experiment. But after only three days it was clear, gluten= gas for my body. So, from then on I've been trying(sometimes failing miserably) to keep myself gluten free. I'm always on the lookout for meals that are already gluten free, and when I saw this one the other day I immediately double checked all the ingredients and said yes and thank you!

So here's what you need:

1-2 pounds of ground beef
1 can tomato sauce
a teeny tiny bit of salt
1 tsp Allspice
1 Tblsp Cumin
1/2 Tblsp Chili Powder (more if you like your chili spicy)
1/2 Tblsp Onion Powder
1/2 Tblsp Granulated Garlic
1 can black beans
1/4 cup of Masa
1 cup water
Cheddar Cheese

Ok so I just wanted to comment on my ingredients. If I had gone to the store this weekend I would have picked up an onion and garlic and chopped those up and sauteed them until soft and sweet instead of using onion powder and granulated garlic. The beans I used had some jalepeno and tomato in them.

Ok Then! Brown that meat!

Add tomato sauce and seasonings!

Stir and cover it up and let it simmer on low for about 30 minutes

Add the beans

cover it up and let it simmer for about 20 minutes

Mix the corn flour and 1/2 cup of water

Put it in the Chili and add in the rest of the water

Now let it simmer for another 10 minutes or so and assemble your other utensils

Now layer!

Eat it up yo!!!!!!

xoxo Joy
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / De-Stash Swap on: September 07, 2011 11:44:18 AM
hey everybody. I'm just curious if anyone has done a de-stash swap, participants matched according to what they have available and quantity and a small or medium crafted item? I wouldn't be up for it just yet but maybe after the holidays? I just wanted to get a feel and see if anyone is interested or see what people have done before. Also, I've never organized before so If anyone is looking to organize something like this?

Thanks in advance for your responses!!  Grin

Thanks so much for your kind words and suggestions! I'm thinking one is going to be a broach and the other I think will end up as a headband or barrette.

Sorry Mod's I didn't really look at where I put this post, thanks for fixing it for me! Cheesy

Love the skirts!
I also love your post. I like that you talked of your pitfalls and stumbles in detail ' put the waistband in wrong' kind of thing, reminds me that everyone does that kind of stuff, not just me! yay!

Thanks so much! I'm one of those people who would love to be able to sew perfect but it never quite ends up that way  Grin I'm really happy with how these turned out and I want to make another skirt from this tutorial : http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2011/how-tuesday-sew-a-skirt-in-one-hour/?ref=fp_blog_title

I have a beautiful batik fabric I got on sale a couple months ago that I hope will look great!

Thanks for all your kind words and suggestions!
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Oh yea, I also made some fabric flowers! on: August 18, 2011 12:43:11 PM
Hello Again! So I found an awesome tutorial to make some fabric flowers from a post on here that I can not find.

***If you did a post about fabric flowers please put a link so you can get some credit!! I want to give it to you!***

So the tutorial had you using fabric glue and I want to give a resounding recommendation to do just that. I used a thicker fabric so I thought I should use something more fast drying, hot glue. Let me just say, you use your fingers to twist and shape the fabric to make that flower shape and it hurts like crazy when you accidentally stick your finger in a blob of it and you burn yourself.

Now I've just got to figure out what to do with them. Any suggestions?

What up What up?!?

So, I'm currently unemployed and bored out of my skull waiting for my first year of college to start(at 26). The other day I decided to have a crafting day and made these skirts. The gray one is from a pattern, Simplicity 1966. The blue I just cut two triangles with the tops chopped off and added a waistband.

I've been kind of obsessed with the idea of having a gray skirt so I decided to finally buck up and make one. I started out making a burgundy skirt out of the simplicity pattern but I am an idiot and didn't cut out the pattern properly and made it about a size 4 instead of a size 8. Then I made the gray one cutting quite a bit more liberally. Once I sewed the overskirt portion I realized that I had somehow made the overskirt the correct size but the underskirt was about two sizes too big. It took a lot of fanagaling but I eventually made it work and wore it to a going away party that night. They both look very hand made, but I kind of like that. So, here are some pics of the gray skirt.

 from the side, you can see where I had to kind of pleat it to make it work

the obligatory butt image: it's kind of funky back there but I needed more fabric because my butt looks like a cantelope cut in half and shoved down my pants (i.e. I've got a big bubble butt)

Are you still with me? Good! Now we'll move on to the blue skirt. I tried to make an a-line skirt, added a couple inches to my waist measurement and then cut out two triangles with the tops lobbed off. The hem ended up a little funky(in a bad way) but I'm the only one who would notice, then I sewed the waistband on the wrong way, but I acctually ended up kind of liking the way it turned out. I think it would look really cute with a white button down shirt tucked in and some cute wedges. I neither have a white button down or cute wedges so I'll show it to you with the same shirt I had on with the last skirt.

(ignore my love handles)

Well, they are my first sewing attempts that actually have become part of my wardrobe so I'm happy with the attempts but I'm excited to get better! What do you think?
