22  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / creative things you can do with tortillas... on: July 21, 2006 06:03:24 AM
anyone else have any tortilla recipes? I use them all the time, for things other than the obvious (and also delicious) mexican varieties. here are some of my faves:

Italian style: brush with olive oil, add fresh spinach, basil, garlic, mozzerella and parmesean cheese, and pine nuts. bake in the toaster oven. yum!
Giant Pierogie: stuff with mashed potatoes, onions and cheese, fold in half and fry in a little olive oil
s'mores style: drizzle with honey, cinnamon, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, bake in the toaster oven til melty.
23  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / African curry chop with fruit on: July 11, 2006 12:17:05 PM
this sounds gross but it is really awesome!! my grandparents were missionaries in Sierra Leone and whenever our family gets together we make this. I made up the veggie version when I stopped eating meat and it's just as good. Smiley

(meat) cook 1 lb roast in crock pot for 5-6 hours with water, curry powder, onions, and garlic
(veggie) in a sauce pan heat 1 can chick peas , 3/4 cup veg broth, onions, curry powder, season salt and a little garlic, thicken with corn starch

serve on rice, top with chopped banana, mango, papaya, mandarin oranges, coconut, peanuts.

trust me, this stuff rules!
24  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / anyone else use Paperclay? (and my gnomes) on: June 15, 2006 06:01:44 PM
I love this stuff! It air dries and you can sand it and paint it with watercolors (which I love)
a few things to watch out for: it's not good for very delicate details. also it dries out quickly once you open it, so you have to keep it in a airtight container. I made these guys with it:
25  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / mindless doodle into embroidery design on: May 31, 2006 01:55:08 PM
I drew this in my sketchbook one day, and turned it into this:
the drawing is about 2 inches tall, the embroidery is about 10. it changed some when I redrew it bigger, but I like how it turned out. I'll probably do more like this. great way to use those crazy stream of consciousness doodles!
26  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / transferring patterns onto felt on: May 05, 2006 07:43:09 AM
I was wondering if any of you clever gals (or guys) know of a good way to transfer patterns to felt? I suppose you could trace it on using a light box if it was a light color. any other suggestions?

my latest embroidery... can you tell I'm loving spring? Wink
I stretched this one on a canvas frame. I think I like that better than framing it behind glass. it can breathe this way. Smiley

30  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / the Yard Stick shelf ~ tutorial on: February 04, 2006 07:47:00 AM
this is the cheapest, easiest nic nac shelf you can find. here's what you need:

a yard stick- you should be able to find one at your local hardware store for under a dollar. you can paint it if you like, I left mine in it's natural state.

cut 3 pieces of ribbon all the same length. I made mine about 9 inches long.
fold one ribbon into a circle, overlapping the ends. put the end pointing up on the inside.
put a thumbtack through both ends from the inside. stick it in the wall.
repeat with the other two ribbons, one for each end of the yard stick and one in the middle.
slide the yard stick through the ribbons. you can glue it underneath if you want.
voila! you're done. here's mine:
