The past couple of years, I've been trying to stretch my analog skills and have started doing paper cutting and quilting. Here are a few examples:

I LOVE the cardinals! They're the state bird of Illinois (right?) and I don't see them much anymore now that I live in Philly. My parents have a pair (they go everywhere together, the male and female) that visit our back porch and I love seeing them all year long.

This is a necklace I recently finished. It's brecciated jasper (pendant) strung together with tiger's eye (smaller rounds) and mahogany obsidian (larger rounds) in sterling silver. The pendant is unbelievably awesome in its color striations, but this shot only shows it from the side.

well crap. photo too big. and, I don't feel like typing this out again ever, so, uh...just picture it in your mind. *sad trombone*

Cool

I just wanted to reiterate that you can post anything you've done; big or small! If you don't have room for a garden, but have a plant you've bought, and are watching it grow and bloom, post it! I love to see plants (I was a horticulture major in college)! Don't feel like what you have to contribute 'isn't enough'. So don't hold back on us!!! We're nosy and want to see what you've been up too!

Ooo, Ooo, I forgot this, how I could forget this I have no idea. I guess because I didn't get to EAT them.
Feast your eyes on the loveliness of cake decorating class. I am a renaissance woman, LOL! I can grout tile and bake a lovely decorated cake!

The Rainbow cake was first, the Clown cake second and the Flower cake third. I had never decorated a cake in my life. I didn't master the rose until later but I did get it, finally.

I know this is really really stupid to list as a talent or hobby but whatevs.

As i posted about, last year I worked at a bar and restaurant and discovered I'm really good at mixing drinks and inventing new ones. The same way some people are good at cooking or baking and like trying new recipes, I really like doing that with liquor and mixers. I invented some cool shooters, and some twists on classic margaritas that were really good. I also used to love looking up really classic old drink recipes like sidecars or Gin Blossoms or Pink Ladies that nobody orders anymore and making them at work. Every now and then I could talk a customer into ordering something they'd never tried before and I loved getting to make and offer them new things they'd either never heard of or never tried. I used to get so geeked up when somebody would discover a new favorite and say they couldn't wait to order it again.

Also serving drinks properly is kind of (kind of) like plating food. The presentation is a big deal to me and I always made a point of doing the little things (like clearing the salt on a salt rimmed margarita glass out of the inside of the glass) that made them look like a magazine picture.

Sometimes on my days off I'd buy up a bunch of those little airplane sized bottles of liquor and some fruit and fruit juice and play around with new ideas.

Thanks, lfw. It was the cutest cake. My bil took it to work the next day, he got there at 6:30 in the morning and it was gone by 7:00. The sad thing was, he took their heads off so he wouldn't lose them. He took these headless clowns into work, it was a little gruesome I thought.

All of you ladies are so creative! I'm not artsy at ALL, (drawing stick people is my specialty ) but I like to paint pottery at a local pottery place here. As soon as I can, I'll get a picture up.

My three favorites:

Trail Mix Shooters (I invented this one! It tastes just like trail mix)
Put in a cocktail shaker equal parts Frangelico, Cranberry Juice, and Amaretto. Shake with ice and strain into a glass. YUM!


Tuaca Sidecars. Tuaca is an Italian liqueur with an orange/vanilla flavor. Think a slightly ligher Grand Marnier with vanilla. A "sidecar" is a margarita made with brandy or another liqueur. Chill a cocktail glass (aka the martini glass) and rim sugar. Shake together 2 ounces of Tuaca, a splash of sour mix, a splash of Triple Sec, a splash of Rose's Lime Juice and some OJ. Strain into cocktail glass and garnish with a wedge of orange.

Italian Wedding Cookie Shooter. This can actually be served as a shooter or chilled in a cocktail glass. It tastes exactly like one of those Italian Wedding Cookies dusted with powdered sugar. Shake together 2 ounces Stoli Vanilla, 1/2 ounce each White Creme de Cacao and Amaretto, and 1 ounce each pineapple juice and cranberry juice. Strain into either a highball glass or a cocktail glass. Make sure to shake very hard, because when you look at your glass from the side, the "foam" will be white and look like the powdered sugar on the cookies. Super yummy.

Feast your eyes on the loveliness of cake decorating class. I am a renaissance woman, LOL! I can grout tile and bake a lovely decorated cake!

The Rainbow cake was first, the Clown cake second and the Flower cake third. I had never decorated a cake in my life. I didn't master the rose until later but I did get it, finally.
LOVE THEM!!!! I especially love the clown one . I've wanted to take cake decorating lessons for the longest time.

As i posted about, last year I worked at a bar and restaurant and discovered I'm really good at mixing drinks and inventing new ones. The same way some people are good at cooking or baking and like trying new recipes, I really like doing that with liquor and mixers. I invented some cool shooters, and some twists on classic margaritas that were really good. I also used to love looking up really classic old drink recipes like sidecars or Gin Blossoms or Pink Ladies that nobody orders anymore and making them at work. Every now and then I could talk a customer into ordering something they'd never tried before and I loved getting to make and offer them new things they'd either never heard of or never tried. I used to get so geeked up when somebody would discover a new favorite and say they couldn't wait to order it again.

Also serving drinks properly is kind of (kind of) like plating food. The presentation is a big deal to me and I always made a point of doing the little things (like clearing the salt on a salt rimmed margarita glass out of the inside of the glass) that made them look like a magazine picture.

Sometimes on my days off I'd buy up a bunch of those little airplane sized bottles of liquor and some fruit and fruit juice and play around with new ideas.
I think it's a talent and certainly a hobby! I can't for the life of me really make a decent drink, and forget about creating one from scratch! lol Everyone would be running to the restroom!

This ornament is so damn hard to photograph. The purple just refuses to shine brilliantly.

Just beautiful!

Can't wait to see!

I've done that before; it's loads of fun. I've given them as gifts.

Awwww. Thank you. What I found is that so many bar customers nowadays are only interested in getting wasted or in having some long-winded named drink like the "White Chocolate Rasberry Appletini" or some such nonsense. So much of the real art of cocktail making and serving has gone the way of the dinosaur. One of my funniest exchanges with a patron was with a woman who ordered a martini. I asked her how she wanted it, and she said "what do you mean?" And i said, "Uhmmm. Dry? Dirty? Up? On the rocks? Twist?" and she asked me what "dry" meant. When i said it referred to the amount of vermouth, she said she 'hated vermouth' and when i asked her if all she wanted was chilled gin, she said she hated gin. I said "Miss. A martini without gin or vermouth is an empty glass. So let's try and figure out what you really want to drink." As it turned out, she thought of a "martini" as vodka served straight up, whereas I was thinking of a martini in the classic "three parts gin one part vermouth" serving.

I once had a customer tell our night manager that I was the only waitress in forever who actually understood what questions to ask when somebody ordered a martini. I was like unreasonably proud of that.

You're quite welcome!

I wouldn't be able to do what you do!
