I thought I'd share some of the things I'm working on. I can't possibly start only one thing either! Hope you have your coffee or tea.....long post :)
This is where I sit to colour in the beautiful light. Don't let the sun shining in deceive you, it's still -34! And where I like to knit....should have had this done ages ago, could be using it now :)
I think I had better quit colouring (with Copics) and get these onto cards :)
I saw a heart journal on Patty's sight, http://bitze.wordpress.com/ and thought I'd do one......or this might end up being a hanger or maybe two cards....depends which way the spirit moves me :)
I've traced this heart shaped box and painted the chipboard with gesso, stamped and embossed with clear ep, coloured with distressed inks and then a layer of clear, matt gel into which I put strips of crinkled, white wrapping tissue---the colour shows through nicely. Then I started adding some do-dads and some Iridescent Bronze acrylic all around the edges plus I painted some on the top and the 'creases'. It's not finished yet....I'll be finished in a few days and show you the results :)
And of course, while paint dries on one project, I always start another (or two). My first tissue roll mini book. I used paper towel roll for the cover pieces, covered them all with printed paper--this is from CTMH. Made tags to go in the five 'pages', the cover pieces I stuck together--not using them with pockets. A couple more days to finish this one off too....
And of course, I have to bake when it's cold outside :)
This is a sweet sticky rice, thai dessert. I did it the easy way, adding coconut milk right to the rice (and next time, I will only add 1/2 to 3/4 of a can) then, when I dished it up (warm), I added some lovely mango.
I am trying to lose a bit of weight, what part of that includes dessert, lol.
If you only have 1/2 cup of this, it's about 125 calories. I would use 1/2 or 3/4 of a can of coconut milk with 3 cups cooked rice---just enough to make it hold it's shape if you were to put it in a roll, then add mango--I used frozen mango this time, it has a wee bit of juice when thawed. This was enough for 7, 1/2 cup servings.
