1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / enter slash exit (warning: semi graphic images) on: June 10, 2008 04:19:41 AM
First of all, I couldn't figure out if this should go here or somewhere else, but I figured I'd put it here.

Anyway, first of all THIS IS MADE BY MY MOTHER NOT ME.
Shes an art student and if this and another one of her pieces ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=188276.msg1974787#msg1974787 )is anything to go by, maybe a bit of a closet lesbian.

Happily sewing away, I wonder what all this lovely pink fabric will turn into...

Hanging it up...

So yeah, its a big fabric vagina, that she has stapled to the door of her classroom.
There are about 20 more action shots, if you want to see more people being 'born'.

I just realised how f'ing cool my mum is.
I hope you enjoyed this.

And sorry again if this is the wrong place, this is 'art' though, isnt it?
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / making resin molds on: May 05, 2008 12:47:11 AM
So, the only mold I have for my resin is a silicone minimuffin tray.
I was wondering if there was a way to make my own molds, I want shallow square/rectangle ones.
I was thinking, would it be possible to make to make one out of lots of layers of duct tape?
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / help! attatching things to my journal on: April 17, 2008 12:24:57 AM
First up I don't know how to spell attatch..
So just bear with the crappy spelling please.
(Is is bear or bare?! Oh god...)

Anyway, I have just got back into journalling thanks to some really inspirational posts on here. I have lots of letters and stuff that I would love to stick in, however most of them are too big or written on both sides so I can't just glue them in.
I folded one letter in half and put it in an envelope I glued on the page. For another piece of paper I glued half of it down and folded it in half so you fold it down to read it.
I also had the idea of punching a hole in the paper and a hole in the journal and tying them together with ribbon.

I would LOVE some more ideas on how I can attatch things to my journal in a way that is easy to read and creative.
Please help, thank you so much.

4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / easy two person lunches on: March 31, 2008 12:29:41 AM
So, I've just moved in with my boy, a vegan.
(I'm a meateater, but havnt actually had any since being with him..)
We sleep in until about 1 in the afternoon, and he has work at 5pm. And we really need ideas as to what to eat for lunch, as we usually just eat toast which gets incredibly boring and probably isnt too healthy.

I'm looking for ideas and recipes of easy, cheap meals we can make together.
He doesnt eat tomatos (wont even kiss me after Ive had some!) and I love them, we both love mushrooms, and onions. And chili beans.
Some of the recipes can have cheese/dairy/meats/eggs/etc as long as we can take them out for his half.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / casting coins in resin on: February 17, 2008 07:22:45 PM
So, Im buying some resin this week, since I have been absolutly inspired by some of the stuff on here!
I have a bit of a thing for coins from other countries and have a canadian quarter that I would like to turn into a necklace.
What would be the best way for me to go about doing this?
6  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Another NZ swap? on: January 24, 2008 11:14:13 PM
Or is it too soon?
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Polymer clay necklace, (FIRST NECKLACE EVER!!) on: January 24, 2008 10:01:18 PM
So, I made my very first piece of jewellery today, (if you dont count those crappy beaded things I made when I was 10..)

I just made a rectangle of Fimo, stabbed a whole though it, baked it, made some sushi, glued on a picture I printed off the computer, covered it in several coats of spray varnish, took some photos and then ate my sushi.

Close up!

Action shot!

Its a bit rough around the edges, and I will probably file them, but in all Im pretty damn proud of it!
8  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / bento boxes in NZ on: December 02, 2007 02:17:49 AM
I recently have fallen in absolute LOVR with bentos, I want to buy one for myself and one for my mum for christmas, though I havnt got a clue where to buy them!
I looked on trademe, but there was nothing, and I dont really want to order from overseas.

Anyone have any idea of what shops would possibly sell them?
9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Any idea on how to make these? on: December 01, 2007 02:20:59 AM

Would it be possible to make myself, or would it just be so much easier to pull a book apart and take it into a shop to get bound?
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / apple, walnut and blue cheese scones. on: November 13, 2007 08:18:31 PM
We make these at work, they are so easy and so yum, thought I'd share:

4 cups of self raising flour
150grams butter
1 apple
a few large handfuls of walnuts
About 100-150grams blue vein cheese
Large handful of grated cheddar cheese
handful of parsley
1 cup milk

Put the flour in a bowl, grate butter into flour and mix with your hands. Add a bit of salt, pepper and mustard for flavour.
Grate or finely chop apple, chop walnuts, parsley and blue cheese. Put those in to flour mixture along with cheddar cheese and milk.
Mix, probably with your hands, which is easier.
Form into balls, put a bit more blue cheese on top and bake at about 180 degrees celcius for around 15 minutes - until they are a light brown colour.

This makes heaps, about 12-15 large scones. You could easily reduce the ingrediants if you want to make less.

If anyone makes these: I hope you enjoy them and would love to hear what you think!
