Creating with Flour


I've been baking again.  Today I tried making Bagels.  If you were on Facebook I was updating my progress.  And if you've been around awhile you know I love to cook as much as I love to craft.  Well, Santa brought me a new Kitchen Aid Mixer, Professional 600!  This baby is built to make bread and lots of it.  It will take me awhile to learn to make bread so here's my first kick at making Bagels I found on Pinterest.

I picked this recipe as I'm too impatient to wait overnight to make my bread.  This recipe is very easy to make in your stand up mixer. This recipe calls for 6c-7c of flour and my "old" KA Mixer would not have like that much but my new one does.  This recipe yields in my case 16 med/large bagels.  I divided the dough in half after a 2 hour rise and made 8 bagels out of each half. 

Here are 6 of the sesame bagels I baked after giving them a boiling bath in water.  Ugh should have taken a photo of that for you...

I made a selection of  bagels, 6 sesame, 6 cheese and 4 cinnamon sugar.  I thought my kids would like that with my Apple Butter.  And they did!  There's only 1 of those left.


My youngest took a bite out of his warm cinnamon sugar bagel.

If you would like to try this recipe... I followed it from Self- Reliance by Jamie.  I like easy recipes to follow that have great results.  She has a lot of great photo's to follow and great instruction.  Be sure to click HERE to make these divine bagels.

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Apothecary Curiosities Coffin

Creepy coffin, I love this one!  I saw these little wooden coffins at the $1 Store and had to get one.  I ended up making this for a class and everyone loved making them.  Halloween is the best!  All the creepy stuff I get away with creating! I picked up these great skeletons at Michaels on a string of garland...6 per rope.  With a little force he fits! I made a template of the coffin and cut Tim Holtz Laboratorie paper to fir in the back. I accidentally broke my skeleton's arm.  Oops!  So, I glued his arm holding the glitter pumpkin.  SAVE! I picked up these skulls on a bracelet for $1.  Layering the Curiosities Coffin is key!  You want to look at the layers, like mesh, pen nib and a spider! I added the "shelves" using popsicle sticks cut to size.  This way it has a cabinet feel. The Apothecary Remnant Rubs are so perfect of the glass bottles full of eyes! Adding a little Spanish Moss makes it all creepy. I LOVE HIM! After the sprayed coffins were dry I sanded them to …
