I guess there are some advantages to living by myself and not having to answer to anyone. Cheesy


Ditto!

Great stuff, schnerby! I love the cover on the journal and the added detail of stamping/decorating each page. The mask is beautiful, and I love the idea of a lace-up coffee cozy. Such fun stuff!

After a slight delay, my snowflakes are on the way...

Hopefully they are loved Wink

lil_abi, I'm with you on the real chocolate thing! But, I figured for drizzling, it'd be okay Wink

Selnith, thanks for the dark chocolate tips- the last time I tried melting chocolate, it was a disaster!

Linda P, I did find one video that uses only the thumb, but it immobilizes your thumb while you're working. The gal in the video made a big ball of yarn, too- my thumb was getting tired with just a little one Wink

And, cowgirlz, I always use mine as dishcloths. I gave my mom a bunch for her birthday or Mother's Day and she kept one to use as a doily, but all the rest get used as dishcloths.

What about those candy melts? They make a dark chocolate version, I think. Those melt up wonderfully... And, I may have to make a bunch of these for Christmas gifts!

Thanks for the idea!

That sounds DELICIOUS!  How giving of you to bring in your pumpkin delight into work.

It was really tasty! I don't usually get my seasoning combos right, so both of these were pleasant surprises! And, when I cook, I always make too much, so bringing it in to work to share at lunch helps me A) get feedback on the taste B) not have to eat the same thing for a week and C) incentive to cook more Wink

This sounds like a great idea, I think I'll have to try it. 

One question, was there a reason you left out the potatoes, or was it just personal preference?
Oh, do try it! It's fun to make! I left out the potatoes only because I thought that the pumpkin would substitute for it. I added extra veggies instead (because I just don't eat enough!). If I had a bigger pumpkin, I would probably top it off with potatoes, just like I had planned to top off the turkey version with stuffing (but ran out of room again Wink ).

No problem! I actually went through a couple of tutes before I decided that I understood that one the best. I was stuck on one bit, but then after I studied the pictures a bit better, I got it. They aren't the neatest looking balls of yarn on the block, but they'll do Wink

I made a turkey dinner version yesterday! I cooked up some ground turkey (with a dash of Bell's Seasoning), then mixed up a packet of turkey gravy. I divided it between 2 smaller pumpkins (they were pretty much out of pumpkins at the farm stand). Then, I added a layer of corn and a bit of butter, followed by a layer of frozen cranberries topped with brown sugar. I had intended to top it off with some stuffing (Stove Top turkey flavor), but ran out of room, so I just made that up separately.

Except for the texture of the turkey (I must have overcooked it before I put it in), it was delicious!! I brought a pumpkin in to work to share... and it got thumbs up (unless they were just being kind...). But I liked it, so that's what's important!  Grin
