Beararium Terrarium.
Friday July 17th, 2009 07:48 PM

Beararium., originally uploaded by sugar-cookie.

Here is my Beararium. It is a terrarium I made from a honey bear! We seem to have alot of honey bears at our house, so I was trying to think of new ways to use these very cute containers. You can make one, too. Here is how.

What you will need:

one clean, dry, honey bear


potting soil

seeds (I used wheat grass)

What to do:
First, put some pebbles in the bottom of your honey bear. Make sure the layer is about a half inch thick. This will help with draining when you water your bear. Next add some soil. I filled my bear almost to the top. Make sure to leave room to add some seeds! Next add some seeds. You don't need many of them, maybe about a half of a teaspoon. Add a little more soil on top to cover the seeds. Water your seeds and place your Beararium in a sunny spot. Water it regularly and watch it grow!

I planted mine last Saturday and look how fast it has grown! I planted wheat grass because it is easy to grow and it grows quickly! Plus, it is a good treat for Nilla and Oreo!

The Beararium has been growing for a few days, and if you look very close, you can see the roots reaching all the way through the honey bear, and notice how the stalks of grass are growing and wiggling in the honey bear's nose!

Little Embroidery.
Wednesday July 15th, 2009 10:15 PM

Hello. I have been working on a little embroidery using my Sublime Stitching book. I got the pattern using the download from Misako Mimoko blog. You might remember Little Dog from my post here. I have to say, this is my first "real" attempt at embroidery, aside from stitching features on to plush toys that I sew. I really enjoyed drawing in stitches, and using Eva's lovely artwork - especially cos it reminds me of something I might draw myself! I am going to enlarge the pattern just a little and stitch another one and add it to a skirt my mom helped me sew.

Here is a detail of my embroidery, too. Oh, how I love my new camera! Check out those French knots, too. I was a little nervous to do them at first, but Jenny Hart's book really does a fabulous job in describing exactly what to do! Heart!

Baking in a Jar

finished poppyseed cakes in jars.

check out my jar cakes!

I have been reading about baking in jars lately, so I tried it for myself! Above are my photos of the poppyseed cake I tried first. It looks pretty good, but we are waiting until Christmas Eve to have it as our dessert.

Spooky Dessert

spooky dessert.

Last Sunday was our Church of Craft meeting. We had it at our house and it was really fun. Our theme was Halloween, but not everyone worked on Halloween projects. Our snack table was very Halloween, though!! I made a Spooky Dessert.

Here it is chillin' in the fridge before everyone arrived.

our snacks again.

Here is the final dessert. The ground is made of Oreo cookies, but under that is a pudding, Cool Whip, and Oreo mixture. Check it out...

Behind the Spooky Dessert is a couple of cheese plates.

I sliced the cheese with my Halloween mini cookie cutters to make them festive!

Here is the Spooky Dessert Recipe:

3.5 cups milk
2 packs of 4 serving size instant pudding
1 tub of 12 oz Cool Whip
1 16 oz Oreos, crumbled

Pour cold milk into a large bowl. Add pudding mixes. Stir in 3 cups of Cool Whip and add half of the cookies. Spoon into a 9x13 pan and sprinkle with the remaining cookies.

Refrigerate for 1 hour or until ready to serve.

Decorate with tombstones (I used Milano Cookies) and Cool Whip ghosts. Lettering on the tombstones and faces on ghosts are made with black gel icing.

sleeping bunny charm

I have been working all day on my Etsy Shop! I have added some new items, like bread and French toast hairpins. I think they are so cute. I am busy as a bee sewing, so maybe some new pics of those goodies soon!

How to make a zine

step 10

I have been making zines for a number of years and I love it. Some of my friends have been asking how to make one so they do not end up with pages in the wrong order, not enough pages, or too many pages. Well, I have created an easy tutorial for those who are interested in making a zine.

april meeting

molly and elizabeth knitting.

We had a really good meeting a few weeks back. Our friends Elizabeth and Rita came. They both knitted some. Elizabeth also made some collaged bird magnets. Rita knitted a scarf. Molly was there and knitted a very fancy shawl. It was looking good at the Church!

i am making a bunny.


Here I am making a pompom bunny. I started a white one and then a grey one. I still have not finished them, so I will get back to you on that.

Raoul sewed some cute ice cream cones to be revealed at a later date.

Cindy came to hang out, too. She shared some really nice strawberries. Later on a local celeb showed up and bought some antiques.

I think we ended up at Ryan's for dinner that night.

What a full day!
