Happy Halloween :o)!

Halloween Fabric Bowl I just made!!! :o)

    I've made a few fabric bowls but it has been a while. I forgot how much fun they were! 

 Cute little Halloween Bowl!



 Cool eh?

 I used this book with all of my other ones I did.

 I used the Bowl Maker for this one. Makes it so much easier just to trace the pleats.

I've got to try some other ones for Christmas. 
ENJOY your weekend and don't forget to VOTE on Tuesday.

My 55th Birthday Manicure! :o)

Yes, today is my 55th birthday and it is my twins birthday too. Happy Birthday Sharon. :)
This is Revlon "Gum Drop"! I have used it before and love it. 
The application is three coats. It is rather thin and hard to apply but I love the color.

This is plate BM14 using Konad Polish Violet Pearl.

I made these earlier this morning. 

Don't you just love the light lavender color? 

What can I say? They were too good to wait. :)

Ok strange manicure. P2 Color Victim "Trouble" and Plate HB28

This is P2Color Victim "Trouble"! 
A real nice green. It applied pretty good in two coats.
I then used plate HB28! I was going to try the little ghost but they never came out very good so I just put the full name spider web thingy on.
Ya a white spider web...........go figure. Weird manicure for sure. :)
Have a nice weekend,

Gift from grandson: Fall Collection with Plate HB28

I met up with my Son Ronnie, Daughter in Law Erica and Grandson Drew today for lunch and Drew gave me two little polishes. :) So cute.

This is one of the little polishes that Drew gave me. It doesn't have a name. 
The other one is a purple one.

It went on really nice. It is a pretty frosted white. Two coats.

 I added some pumpkins and witches. The pumpkins were mostly just a blob so I added the white. :)

Cute eh?

Here I added the green stem.

Bread Baker's Apprentice Challenge! Recipe #24 called Panettone!

This is my try at the BBA recipe #24 called Panettone.
I had to add an extra 1 1/2 cup flour to get it to become a proper dough ball. I didn't use the alcohol so I used Rum flavoring.
I also added 2 full eggs instead of the 1 egg and 1 egg white it called for.
I baked it only 50 minutes and got a perfect 200° instead of baking the 1 1/2 hours as was suggested. I've read most said it was dry. It could be because of the over baking. 
The taste was very good and the texture perfect. I tried one plain and one toasted with peanut butter. LOVE IT.
