I just got an overstuffed envelope from madcrafter:

First, an actual ATC-sized book for my "books" theme (yay!)

...and this utterly amazing dimensional furry monster card for my daughter.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Iron Chef Hogwarts November
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Chicken Karaage
Project Page Link (if available): https://www.amazon.ca/Basic-Japanese-Cooking-Jody-Vassallo/dp/1552859711
Brief Description: Basically, it's japanese fried chicken.
-1 lb skinless chicken thighs (I used 1 chicken breast instead)
-1 tbsp finely grated fresh ginger
-2 tbsp soy sauce
-1 tbsp sake
-1 tbsp mirin
-1/2 cup potato starch or cornstarch
-1 sheet roasted nori, cut into 3/4 inch wide strips (I completely didn't use this)
-sunflower or vegetable oil, for deep-frying
-gyoza dipping sauce or choice of dipping sauce to serve

Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and put into a non-metallic shallow dish. Add the ginger, soy sauce, sake and mirin and mix well to coat the chicken. Cover and allow to marinate overnight if time permits. Drain Well.
Mix together the potato starch or cornstarch and nori on a large plate then use to coat the chicken in the mixture, shaking off any excess.
Heat the oil in a wok until it starts to move and bubble when a chopstick is stood up in it. Deep-fry the chicken in batches for 3-5 minutes, or until crisp, golden brown and cooked through. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper and keep warm while you cook the remaining chicken. Serve with gyoza dipping sauce or your choice of dipping sauce.
Project Picture:

This recipe is pretty versatile, I even changed the chicken to tofu and cooking method to pan frying once and it was still good. I think the best coating is potato starch, the chicken seems juicier with it.

Made for Smmarrt in the mini prayer flag swap.
I love scrappy patchwork covered with simple stitches, these were really satisfying to make. Included are some beads, vintage buttons, ribbon, & lace from my stash.

We were each sent 2, one to keep & one to abandon. Which do you think she'll choose for what?

Yay! They are here! Well, they've been here for a while but I finally have them to post and feel and yay!

Thank you so much, Tisha,for the flags and all of the paper goodness you included. The flags are gorgeous and it will be hard to give one away.

Fabric and color and stitching and trim and buttons and just fabulousness!

(I will post pics of the extra tomorrow)

Every year about this time I sort through the books piled up by my bedside, to make room for the upcoming Christmas Book Season. It's always interesting to see what's accumulated there. Usually there are one or two books that have lingered for several years, waiting to be read or just not quite ready to go back on the shelf or out the door. Forty-five books on the stack this year - a few more than usual. Of course book piles sprout elsewhere in the house too, but the bedside one is out of the way of traffic and can build up undisturbed for longer.

Thank you, CLM and kbrison!  He is adorable, but I am biased Smiley

Over the weekend, some friends and I got together to make bracelets.  I've never done beadwork like this and have a profound respect for jewelry makers.  I had a few beads but most of the supplies were in another lady's stash.  Two of the ones I made are being sent to a friend who works with special/visually impaired kids. There are dangling charms for the kids to feel.  My hope is for them to "see" a butterfly.  One is orange, brown, red, and gold.  Another is turquoise, teal, and gold.  There are lava beads on each one for adding a drop of essential oil.  Yay for multisensory components!  I kept the silver/black one.

I made a plaid unstructured tote for a gift bag from stash.   The handles are yellow in support of those who are MIA - "until they all come home."

Then I noticed this month's challenge.
   Color: Brown
   Pattern: Plaid
   For: Charity
   Challenge 1:  Host a crafternoon with friends.  Its a great way to make gifts in bulk ahead of the holiday season.  And fresh eyes looking at your stash may find new ways to use materials that would never occur to you.  Check.
   Challenge 2: Make more than one of something.  If you've already got the supplies out,
   it might be nice to make a batch, some to keep, some to give away.  Check.
