Hi! I've collected* a few friends through crafty means, so it would be nice of me to share my projects once in a while now wouldn't it?

I made these special edition cupcakes for the lovely Elise of Red Velvet Art! She is away currently, so they are patiently** awaiting her return from vacation!

Humm, what kind of cupcake color combination would you like to see? I've vowed not to buy any more yarn until I use up at least 1 of my big plastic zipper-bags (I mean big as in like 3x3) or unless I need a basic, like brown, or something for a custom order. Although I feel like I have every color right now since I did a trade for part of a friends' stash. I made one that was purple and teal and figured no one would love it like I did, but it sold last week already!

*collected not like collected in a small jar, but as in amassed. Amassed sounds too pretentious for a post of cupcakes though, don't you think?

**patiently means I crammed them into a plastic bag because they kept jumping around the apartment. Seriously - how else can you effectively store 20 happy cupcakes that want nothing other than to make you as happy as them? Plus I don't want any stragglers under the couch or anything.

Swimming?, originally uploaded by rengawk.


I figured it wouold be a nice change to envision warmer weather through my crafts. Actually the pool look was accidental, and I didn't notice it until I uploaded it to Flickr. I put them all in my Etsy shop so they can travel the world. ^^

Okay so I lied, its not different at all, its pretty darn common.

What you may ask?

I'm doin' the Friends' sign-up obligatory post that is future-dated.

Wanna be on my list? Drop a note here!

Please let me know where you came from (SB, craftgrrl, weloveamigurumi, etc.), so I don't run and hide and not add you back! ^^

I plan to make a new one annually, so I can add a little profile stuff that will actually get updated! What a concept huh!

My LJ is a place where I like to share my little joys, my crafty creations, and to bitch and moan. That's the point of a journal, right? Right!

...helped me make gravy.


At 9am.

Our crock pot cooked the food too fast, so it was READY ready (the veggies) at like 5am, so I had to pull them. Then this morning I used her recipe, modified because I don't have an actual strainer or any cornstarch so I used paper towels layered that SOMEHOW WORKED into a measuring cup, and added flour in the pan with a sifter, but I should have whisked it in another container, as I have a nonstick pan and only metal whiskers. Blah.

So anyway it tastes great and I even forgot to add salt and pepper.

Although next time I will measure my flour, as I think I added too much, because upon cooling I have a gel, oops. I still have more liquid at the bottom of the pot that I may try to combine batches so on Christmas I can be like LOOK LACTOSE FREE HOLIDAY, and not have forgotten the gravy. *cough cough* Thanksgiving *cough*  No, no issues arose but I was disappointed that I hadn't thought of EVERYTHING like I was walking around here thinking.

Or maybe I'll make another batch from the turkey stuff, since it really was that damn easy. We will see.

Do you think I gave her enough links?

Why no, I've never seem my work blogged elsewhere, why do you ask?

I made a public Flickr group for the cupcakes if anyone else makes any too. ^^

I keep messing up my spell-checker by adding misspelled words, so I finally looked up how to delete my erroneous entries...

Remove misspelled words from your Firefox dictionary

I'm sure I'll need it again. ;)
