221  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Craftster Blog on: September 12, 2008 04:26:12 AM
Been reading through the Craftster Blog, and have to say I'm thoroughly enjoying it!

Did not know the posts go all the way back to August of 2004. I thought the blog was relatively new, but I was mistaken (cause you know I'm never wrong Wink ).

Leah has an easy writing style, and is quite witty. You all should check it. Smiley

Noticed on the home page about the Master Crafters. Just curious about the addition, and it's purpose. Smiley
223  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Mosaic Guitar: Melody in Monochrome on: August 26, 2008 01:58:45 PM
For background on this mosaic you can check here. Otherwise here is the result.

Now the finished piece.










This close up of the grout.


First time using MAC glue, and I had 0 grout bleed on this whole piece! All this glass and no grout under any. MAC glue is my new best tool in mosaics! I highly recommend it for use on indoor mosaics.

That's a wrap...or is that rap?  Smiley

Has there ever been a cooking challenge?  Smiley

Would anyone be interested in having one? I know I would. What could be some possible topics for the challenge?

The materials used:
silver wire, crash glass (tempered glass), glue metal ball chain, clear cut glass, clear marbles, sheet music and mirror.

Hope to post images this week of the grouted completed guitar. As always though ideas, comments, suggestions and questions always welcome.  Smiley
227  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shrink Film Mask Pins on: July 30, 2008 09:56:40 AM
Needed to take a break from a mosaic project I'm working on, so I grabbed some shrink film.

Saw something like these on the net somewhere, but don't recall exactly. Thought they were eye catching, and liked the idea. So here is my take on them.

Just using colored pencils, beads and shrink film. Then added pin backs to wear them. They are about 2 inches across.







Thanks for checking them out! Smiley
228  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Falling Leaves on my Towels! on: July 23, 2008 05:18:45 PM
Hi my name is HSG, and I have a tree fetish.  Grin

This project was inspired by two things:

1. The Bloom Bathmat, by mimiw.

2. And a picture in my guest bathroom downstairs, by meArtDesign on Etsy.

Inherited loads of linens from my Grandmother (who was 96 when she passed away 3 years ago), and these 1970's green towels were amongst the linens. There are 2 large towels, 2 hand towels and 2 wash cloths. Before I would use them though I had to bring them into the current year.  Smiley

Close-up:


Picture used for motif and inspiration:


Results:




All the materials used were from my stash, and I am so pleased with how these turned out. Think I will have to dig out some more of the towels. Smiley



Thanks for checking it out!  Smiley

229  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Fruit Salsa & Cinnamon Chips on: July 18, 2008 02:39:26 PM
Okay, here is another one of my stupid simple, but oh so yummy recipes.

It is great to make in summer when the fresh fruit is available, but it can be done with frozen when fresh are not available.



Fruit Salsa & Cinnamon Chips
2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and diced
8 ounces raspberries, chopped
1 pound strawberries, chopped
3 tablespoons fruit preserves, any flavor, I prefer orange marmalade
10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
butter flavored cooking spray
2 cups cinnamon sugar

In a large bowl mix all fruit thoroughly, then add fruit preserves. Cover and chill in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Coat one side of each flour tortilla with butter flavored cooking spray. Lightly. No need to make it greasy. Sprinkle wedges with desired amount of cinnamon sugar. Cut into wedges and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet. This will take about 15 minutes for all tortillas. It is a good idea to use several cooking sheets, and rotate them as you cook. Just makes it go faster.




Bake in the preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes. The longer they are in the crispier they will be. Repeat with all remaining tortilla wedges. Allow to cool. Serve with chilled fruit mixture.

This is the amount made from this recipe. And in this shot the salsa had not been mixed.


This recipe gets so many ravs when I make it. But you don't have to tell how easy it is. Wink


Happy noshing!
230  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / To Sign or Not to Sign on: July 14, 2008 02:32:47 PM
That is my question.  Smiley

So do you sign your pieces? Do you date them? Do you have a method to your signing? Specific color?

My inquiring mind would like to know.
