I’ve had some requests to do a tutorial on the coffee filter roses I made for my wedding. So here it is. Like I said they really are easy once you get the hang of them. A bit of practice and you’ll have beautiful roses in no time. The supply list is simple. You will need: floral wire 22–24 gauge white cone shaped coffee filters floral tape scissors pen Petal template (Martha Stewart and Cassie Mae Chappell have a great one, click here to download it)
I learned to cook from my mom, who works a certain kind of magic in the kitchen. Of all the things I’ve learned from her, how to make homemade Irish cream liqueur may not be one of the most practical, but it is one of my favorites. The short version of this recipe is: Add all ingredients to your blender. Process until smooth. Strain, bottle, and refrigerate. Drink within one month.
We spent most of our Sunday watching football and the Golden Globes. I wanted a sweet treat, but was not in the mood to bake. Surprise, huh?
My mom loves candles. This year for Hanukka, instead of spending 18 bucks for a candle or two from yankee, I've decided to make her some candles! I ended up spending $12 at Joanne's for enough wax/wicks for ~16 candles. I, however, only made two so that she can decide on her own scent/color combination when I make more. I had a lot of fun making these, and I know she's going to love them.
You will need these supplies: -broken glass (preferably windshield type glass since it breaks more into chunks instead of shards. I had kept two plastic shopping bags of glass when a patio table top broke) -glass containers (available at any craft store) -empty clear glass votive holders (I got mine at hobby lobby) -battery operated votives (these are rechargable color changing that my friend gave to me. they can be found here ) -work gloves to protect your fingers from glass <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

Nearly every year, we give away some sort of hand-made food product for the holidays. In the past, we've given jams, chutneys and pasta sauce. This year, we decided to take on the holy trinity of American condiments: Ketchup, mustard and relish. After all, why pay less than two dollars in the grocery store for what you can make at nearly equivalent cost plus hours of back-breaking labor?

The ORIGINAL cloud lamp project! Have you ever noticed the strange pearl effect that is seen in some liquid soaps? The chances are it's caused by Glycol Stearate or Glycol Distearate which gives a strange optical effect in liquid when it is disturbed by turbulence. This design was inspired in January 2003 when I was washing my hands after a long day derigging Glasgows Christmas lights. I squirted some liquid soap onto my hands, and observed the way the pearl effect changed when I ran a finger through the puddle of soap.
Magazine pages for toner transfer: While looking for information on transferring toner using a fuser assembly from an old laser printer I ran across several websites where people suggested using glossy magazine pages for transferring printed circuit board images to a copper substrate. I thought I'd give this a try for etching Altoid tins, so I cut up a likely magazine.
