Monday is once again at our doorstep, darlings, and there's nothing to start the week off right than a good cup of coffee. If you take yours as the 17th century Turks apocryphally suggest, "black as Hell, strong as death, and sweet as love," these lovely skull and bones sugar cubes by Snow Violent may be just what you need for the perfect cup.

What a completely elegant way to serve strawberries or some other goodies to a special someone or at an elegant party. Take a solid bowl (glass or metal because plastic bowls will tend to shift and can crack chocolate) and use thin foil to cover the outside of the bowl. Melt chocolate or candy melt/almond bark and keep drizzling over foil to create a nesting look.
When Adam and his family were relocating from Malta to Birmingham, they had a car accident. The car was written off and the family had to continue their journey without their cat, Szmelowina.
It was devastating for them to have to leave her behind in an unknown place, but luckily she has been in the tender care of the kind owner of the…
Wrapping a persons head nice and tight, till they cannot breathe, with plastic wrap/ceramic wrap… Mwuahahahaha
Perfect murder and enough time to suck the blood from the living! I’m just kidding. I’m innocent in all accounts, okay, maybe not the wrapping a persons head- that I’m guilty of; but not of comiting a murder. I’m no psycho!
If you must truly know what my hands were doing; I was simply wrapping my friends head in ceramic wrap to protect her pretty, little head from the paper mâché that I was to apply over her face and head (half her head). Alright, that doesn’t sound right, but it was for the making of her bubble head nurse mask..
Thankfully it wasn’t as time consuming as we had thought for it only took a total of two hours rather than four as how the box instructed. One and a half hours of sitting, cutting, applying three layers of paper mâché then the remaining half hour for a complete dry.
After two hours of looking like Doctor Finklesteins wife and that bandaged up superhero (forgot the name), the mask was ready to come off along with the ceramic/plastic wrap.
**No hair was harmed during the making if this mask. haha
The whole process was a breeze and fun as well, what with getting my fingers and shorts (almost my corset too) covered with the mixture. Thankfully the stuff comes clean off with a bit of soap and water. It wasn’t a disappointment. I’ll put up a link, for those interested in making their own paper mâché creations. Simply apply the sheets diagonally as you go. More resistant and it acts like a safety incase it falls. Although I recommend you not leave it where it can fall unless you want to begin the whole process..
But now that I’m done hiding away the evidence that could prove me guilty of such a heinous act, I now find myself in a dilemma.
Now perhaps you’re thinking “sure thing, what the hell can we possibly do for you?” or “I doubt what we could find would be to your liking” but no, none of that. Actually, I’m stumped on one of my creations for a new outfit that I will make for Megacon 2014. Now I can figure out how to make a skirt and a hat and many more things that are circus related, but my issue is…. WHERE THE HELL CAN I FIND CHEAP, YET GOOD QUALITY FABRIC THAT I CAN BUY TO MAKE A SKIRT??
Also, besides that, I’m at a terrible loss with this, but if I’m not mistaken, cornstarch helps stiffen or “harden” fabric in a way that allows it to be shaped or molded to points or some shapes; please let me know if this is correct. If not, do any of you creative birds know of anything that can do this? I have plenty of time on my side, but not enough for making this outfit. If you can please help me out with this sticky situation, I would most certainly appreciate it!
I can only hope.. *crosses fingers*
It’s time to doze off into dreamland and I cannot wait to hit that pillow that’s starring me dead in the face.
Tons of Love Bites,
Since Wednesday the 17th of April (leading up to the 21st), it was nothing but kitchen, baking, baking, more baking and walking home for three days in a row then the remaining three were covered with a labor of love for my friends, sisters’ baby shower.
First time we’ve ever done this kind of thing actually, but I say we did one hell of a great job- what with us having been the caters for the sweets/candy table. Here’s some of the photo’s I remembered to take. I was really happy with outcome and how everything looked and tasted. We kicked ass like there was no tomorrow. Woooo!!!
But of course, we looked forward to the big day and the realization that we could finally get a break at long last from the non-stop baking. Believe me, until you’ve tried baking, working in the kitchen, and getting things down to the T; you have no idea what it feels like to work around the clock for 5 days straight.
So happy there was an open bar there. After 12 drinks, though it did nothing (high tolerance, haha), I was a happy girl especialy since I got my burger. :D Happy in the tummy! Of course, I was forced to sit down after a while to watch sports >,.,< Not a fan. Sorry boys. But even my gorgeous boy knows I’m not a fan of any indoor/outdoor sports show. Give me an umbrella, suncreen, and a pair of running shoes and I’m good, for sprinting and walking are my only interests, aside from a few other recreational outdoor activities.
So my Sunday came to a close at 21:40 (09:00pm) and I was oh so happy to have the chance to kiss my bed and say goodnight to the whole world for a good TWO days!
But yeah, a lot of people enjoyed our work, complimented us and we (the proud bakers) were very happy and excited to know how much everyone enjoyed the sweets/candy table we worked tirelessly on.
And now it’s off to sleep for I’m quite tired. Sweet dreams, nighty night. Don’t let the bed bats bite..much. ;)
