Project 16 - DIY Project #6 - Needle Felted Kitty Head


Hello hello

So, I did this a long time ago

And I forgot to blog about it.

Here is DIY Project [hashtag]6!

I needled felted a little kitty head.

How lovely!

Needle felting is pretty interesting and super cool.

Go ahead and Google it

Cos I have no idea how to explain the way it works.

I bought this is a shop that sells a whole buncha random household and not-so-household items.

In other words, DAISO.

If you don’t have a Daiso in your area,

Well,

THAT’S TO BAD.

Daiso is epic cos

[hashtag]1 – It has everything. From wooden poles to Japanese candies to glass bottles to wires to nail files to photo frames to drinks to phone cases to baskets to hair accessories to etc etc ETC.

[hashtag]2 – Everything is 2SGD… EVERYTHING

[hashtag]3 – The stuff they sell are of pretty good quality. :]

So, now that that’s outta the way…


I bought this the other day

[by the other day I mean four million years ago]


*Thumbs up for procrastination*

Isn’t the kitty cat on the front so ridiculously cute?!

Okay, so, after a couple hours of continuous jabbing,

[hopefully you’ve Googled “needle felting” by now, hehe]

This happened…



As well as four sore and “hole-y” fingers…

Yes, you do accidentally stab yourself in the finger[s] every time sometimes.

I know it looks nothing like the picture…

Why?

Well, that’s cos the eyes they provided were way a tad bit too tiny…

And, mind you, the size of eyes can drastically change the cuteness level of something.

Waddya think?



Overall, I had quite a good time

[because I was watching an epic show while doing this.

Yay for multitasking…]

I feel that the finished product looks close enough to a cat

So yeah.

If I could re-do, I would make the head a little smaller. :]

That’s it!

Have a great day!

Project 16 - Baking Recipe #9 - Gluten-free Cashew Cookies


Hey There!
Okay, I haven’t been posting as much as I wanted to this summer…
But, at least I found some time to bake. (<3)
I baked gluten-free cashew cookies.
But before that, some updates/background info.
*cues flashback video*
~~
Recently, about two weeks ago,
My eczema decided to pay me another visit.
This time, with so much vengeance that I thought I was going to die.
I used to only have it on my ankles and sometimes on my fingers and around my mouth.
Now, it’s everywhere… ><
On my face, knees, and elbows (both in front and behind).
Not even my ears were spared.
It hurt, itched, flaked, cracked, oozed, etc. (ew…)
Yep.
So my mom suggested I change my diet. (AGAIN!)
Usually, the lazy me would resist.
I mean, think of all the stuff you have to take time off to specially prepare.
Not to mention the crazy amount of supplements and whatnots you have to eat.
But, the itching, annoyed, and half-dead me readily agreed.
I was ready to do anything to get rid of this disgusting skin problem…
So the gluten-, dairy-, sugar-, processed/refined foods-free diet began on the 7th of July.
I’m beginning to see some changes and improvement so I’m not complaining.
(though it really was such a pain to chug juice and swallow pills)
*End of flashback*
 
I was good girl for the past 2 weeks and managed to resist lots of stuff.
The resisting didn’t really affect me, I'm not a foodie, you see.
But what got me was the craving.
Everything I ate during the diet was almost always mushy and bland.
I craved something crunchy and salty…
Dehydrated fruits and veggies didn’t satisfy me.
Rice crackers were rather bland as well.
So after two weeks of thinking, searching, and craving,
I finally found a gluten-free cookie recipe.
Yay!
It’s also super easy to make.
Double yay!
 
You’ll need:
§  1/2 Cup Cashew spread
§  1 Tablespoon Honey (can sub agave nectar for vegan)
§  1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
§  1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
§  1/3 Cup Semi-Sweet or Dark Chocolate Chips (optional)
 
 
This is the kind of cashew spread I used.
I know this is not a super organic or healthy recipe but hey,
It only makes 12 small cookies… :P
 
Just mix them all together, spoon them onto a baking tray,
Bake at 350 Fo/176 Co for 8-10 minutes, and
TADA!
 

I love the taste and texture – slightly moist… <3
 
Okay, that’s all I have for now.
See you in the next post which will most probably be another award post.
K, bye~!
