Day 43: Pink and Purple bookmark

There is nothing wrong with getting a bookmark for Christmas! Measuring 5.25 x 2.25 this bookmark is 1/8 inch thick (13.5cm x 5.5cm, .5cm thick for my friends abroad.) .  I initially made these bookmarks for textbooks since folding the pages hurts resale value.  Also they are easy to find and very festive.  I used a plastic canvas, multi colored pink yarn, and purple cotton yarn.

Day 42: Seashell Chandelier Earrings

So this is my second attempt at Chandelier earrings.  I have decided to go with portions of a seashell with a hole punched on the top.  Each shell has a two jump rings attached, the larger jump rings are hypoallergenic.  The metal used to make the Chandelier is Tibetan silver.  The earwires are hypoallergenic but they can be switched to surgical steel free of charge.  These earrings are approximately two inches long and very lightweight.

Day 25: Kombucha Tea

So today I have actually made something that is not going to be on my etsy page.  I made a batch of Kombucha a few weeks ago and there was still some in the jar in the spare room.  So for the SCOBY (Symbionic colony of bacterial Yeast but known as mushroom) to remain fresh I have to make a new batch so that it can eat the sugar from the tea.  Surprisingly the mushroom had grown to almost 2 inches thick. 

Crash Course In Kombucha making
Required Items:
1 Kombucha Culture
3x3 inch cotton cloth (or cheesecloth)
6-8 Packets of Green, White or Black Tea
3 Cups of Organic Cane Sugar
1 Gallon of Distilled Water
1 Large Rubberband
1 Large Pickle Jar
1/4 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
Sanitized pot and wooden spoon

1.Boil 6-8 cups of water with tea bags.
2. Add sugar and wait for it to dissolve in the pan.  Remove from heat and add 10-12 cups of water.
3. Pour into jar Refrigerate for 30 minutes - hour.
4.  Take out of fridge and ease in kombucha culture.
5. Cover the lid with the cotton cloth and place the rubber band around it to keep it in place
6) Place in dark, quiet, cool place for 10-30 days (I honestly would wait 20 days minimum).  On the 10th day place a straw (or pipette) past the culture and taste it.  You are looking for a very fizzy taste.
7) After brewing is complete store in plastic bottles and place in the fridge.

Sorry I have not been that active.  My wallet was lifted Monday night so I have been going through the motions to make sure I will not become a victim of ID theft.  So I made a sheet of shipping labels using a combination of photoshop and photoscape.  It was really hard since I had problems with the template that I downloaded from a website.  When I printed it out the stamp in the end was missing.  Good think I only printed one sheet so a new label will hopefully be in the works.
