I haven't made anything this week so I figured I would go back a few weeks to the most fattening day I had had in a while. Patti Labelle has a recipe for a baked mac n cheese. It is soooo good and I don't even really care about mac n cheese that much. I add more cheese than she calls for so my servings are super fatty! So you have to want it on a day that you don't care what you're eating!
Here's my version right before I took it out of the oven...
So a few years ago, my brother gave me two big boxes of old vinyl records some random guy gave him to try and sell on Ebay. The guy kinda dropped off the face of the Earth and my brother was stuck with the records and well, that's where I come in to take them off his hands.
This weekend I finally decided to recycle a few of them (some shall remain in my vinyl collection... but I figured I would sacrifice some for the sake of craftiness! So here is my start to recycling the vinyl...
a few random records.
a very hot record!
my finished product... holding some bracelets I made this weekend as well.
After all that melting, it's time for some fun with album covers. Maybe not the most novel idea, but definitely a good time!
tonight I went to the bookstore to look at magazines and see if I could find some cool ones to cut up and turn into cool recycled stuff to potentially sell on Etsy. So after skimming a couple of magazines to just say "eh" to, I found a little gem called Hi-Fructose. Lots of weird stuff... kinda like a weird art magazine. I just got finished with a deep skim of it, and I figured I would write about it since it will be contributing to my craftiness. I was going to post a picture of the cover but I liked this picture better... so here it is... fresh off the hi-fructose website...
I hate high fructose corn syrup... even though it's sweet... and yes, I've seen the new commercials about it. I'm still skeptical.
