It's A Postcard

Larger view of the front of my senior show postcard.

Maybe I will post my art for this in an art topic. Or a MOC topic. It could go either way, to be honest.

Maddison achieved graduation approval extraordinaire!

What Pumpkins?

Spritz cookies in the shape of pumpkins!

First Thanksgiving away from home, but my friends Christine and Jon had a Thanksgiving dinner with a bunch of people who weren't able to go home or live here and didn't have a Thanksgiving dinner in town to go to. While eating, we watched part of Madagascar 2, part of Elf, and all of The History of the World Part 1. And then we yelled at commercials for being silly.

I made the aforementioned spritz cookies (which turned out very spicy and warm and quite different from what my mom makes) as well as cranberry sauce again. Except the cranberries didn't pop like last time and it's much more liquidy. It was kind of weird. But it tasted good and everyone really liked it, so no complaints here. I came out of last night with half a ham. So much ham. Delicious ham.

I am hamstuck.


Cranberry Sauce

recipe, thanksgiving and 1 more...
The track team is having a Thanksgiving dinner tonight, so I decided to make a dessert. Except they had cranberries at Grocery Outlet for really cheap, so I was like "Oh man I bet I can totally make awesome homemade cranberry sauce and it will be awesome so let's just ignore that I've never made it before".

So, I'm sort of basing this off of the recipe on the back of the cranberry package, and then another I found online. The final product was supposed to be made of:

-1 cup water
-12oz bag cranberries
-1 cup sugar

After reading comments from people who had made the online recipe, it became:

-1/2 cup water
-1/2 cup orange juice
-3/4ish cup of sugar
-12oz bag cranberries
-1 cup blueberries
-An unknown amount (possibly half a teaspoon?) of cinnamon

Boil liquid and sugar together, then add cranberries, continuing to boil and stir them until they burst. Reduce heat to simmer and stir in cinnamon and blueberries. Remove from stove, let cool until room temperature and chill it in fridge.

It is so delicious. It is kind of tart but still sweet, and it is this super pretty mix of reds and blues that smells super cinnamony.

The recipe line of "boil until cranberries burst" needs to be rewritten to "boil until the cranberries start exploding juice at you and you start to question whether it's really worth getting flying boiling liquid on your hands to make this food."

Anyways, does anyone have some favourite Thanksgiving/holiday foods they like to make or like to eat?

Of Costumes And Makeup

audrey hepburn and 3 more...
The last four years of college have led to me making some pretty ridiculous/awesome Halloween costumes, so I decided to make an entry that lumped all of them together with what I did this year.

2008: Sarah Palin!
Posted Image

2009: Newspaper dress!
This dress successfully won me a mountain bike in a costume contest. It helped that I uttered the phrase "finally there's something good in the newspaper" to the judges.
Posted Image

2010: Nike, Goddess of Victory! Plus Steve Prefontaine, Coach Radcliff, and Kenjon Barner doing...something that leaves me perplexed. (it makes sense because it's the Nike company, and University of Oregon, trust me on this)

2011: Greyscale Audrey Hepburn!
So much grey face paint. I am having problems getting it all off.

Alternatively, Troll Audrey Hepburn:

Necessary because Pat texted me yesterday with "Random silly thought. If you can't get a tiara made, you could be troll Audrey Hepburn", which was funny as I had thought the exact same thing the day prior.


Grey Test

halloween costume
Getting skin to look a proper light grey is difficult. Especially when in a few days, it's going to be from my knees down and then my face/neck, and a good part of my arms/shoulders.

I don't know if I can go with a spot on Audrey Hepburn either. It just figures that I have a tiara at home, but the whole cigarette tube/pearls/Hepburn-esque glasses(?)/black heels/get a wig and style it to make it big and poofy along with the lack of tiara is kind of putting a damper on this.

(dear WalMart and Dollar Tree, please have opera gloves tomorrow and everything else I need, thanks bye)
