For my mom’s birthday this year, I created a Harley Quinn cake. My mom has always been obsessed with Harley Quinn. She has a Harley blanket, sweater, costume and a Batman room. She is the most obsessive person I’ve ever known (I still love you mom, I probably even got that from you). I admit, this wasn’t my best work. I was slightly rushed because I had to make it when she was out and I had quite a few problems with the fondant.
Ok, I don’t know about any of you, but I’ve always had the problem of finding a sugar cookie recipe that doesn’t spread out. One that I can mess about with, make shapes and decorate without worrying about it spreading out or being too soft and falling apart. Well, I finally found one.
Awhile back, I was in the depths of Pinterest and I happened to pass a recipe that sounded decent, so I attempted it, mostly following the recipe. I ended up changing it slightly, and got what I consider the best sugar cookie for decorating. Although it isn’t the sweetest, it’s on the floury side, I like it because it doesn’t spread out and it isn’t too sweet for icing. Therefore, for my purposes, it was perfect. Since finding the recipe, I’ve used it a few times and finally took photos to post it here. Recently, I made them for Gage’s birthday party (will be posted in the next couple weeks).
This year was the big one (or one of them), I turned 16. And of course, I had to have a sweet sixteen birthday party. Now, while most kids consider a sweet sixteen to mean, have everyone you know come over and show off how awesome you are, I decided to invite 13 people and create a murder mystery in February. So, I set off to start the party planning.
After many hours of tedius online research to see what a murder mystery party should look like, my mom deicded to help me out and we decided having it as a conversation to a previous murder would be more fun than seperating the group to go find evidence and the murder victim like some of our internet sources said they had. And it was fantastic. And brilliant.
Okay, so during winter break Reese and I got a bit bored. We saw this thing on pinterest where you make a jar of crafts a while back and pick a craft a day and we kind of did it with activities. Granted, we ran out of ideas for the sticks so half of them were empty… But that’s besides the point. We ended up making a stick with Chopped Challenge on it, and when we finally picked it, we asked our parents to step in to create the rules for our modified challenge and to be the judges. So it all began. My mom started out by taking picks of us, like they do in the show before they begin cooking. Here were ours:
Hello! I had a ton of fun making my abbadon cosplay. It all started with finding my leather jacket… 😉
I made my own The Devil Made Me Do It shirt and made instructions that you can find here but otherwise you can buy the shirt nearly anywhere. For the costume, I wore the shirt, a pair of my black skinny jeans, my black Doc Martens, a leather jacket and a lot of makeup. I have naturally red hair, so all I did was put it into a fancy up-do. As for the makeup, I used this video as my guide but I used a cheaper way that wouldn’t last as long. The person in the video used liquid latex for her neck, while I used Elmer’s glue and toilet paper.
This year was my second year doing Pheonix Comicon, and it was brilliant. I went with my family and not only did we buy a ton, but we people watched and saw many fantabulous costumes.
Hi everyone. 🙂 Last weekend I hosted a Steampunk Disney party. I made some pretty awesome decorations so I decided I would share how to make some of them.
I made tinkerbell shadows to decorate the lightswitches in my house. They were surprisingly easy once you got past the drawing.
Hello! A few days ago my siblings and I did a fun project that made them occupied for hours afterwards. It’s really simple and you can have a lot of fun out of it. We made water bottle tornados. They loved to watch the sparkles swirl around.
All you need is a (water) bottle, water and sparkles. We made a plastic water bottle one and a glass Jones bottle one for the older kids, Reese, who is twelve and still wanted to participate.
