Completed Projects

Projects I've completed.

Origami Book Bouquet: "The Mitten"

Happy Mother's Day to my wonderful mother, my mother-in-law and all the other moms in my life. Linked are images of the origami bouquet I made for my mother this year. When I was young, she use to read "The Mitten" with me.

Maple Bacon Baked Brie Recipe

This month Instructables is having two recipe contests, which has inspired me to experiment with creating my first custom recipe. As a baker and our household's regular cook, I do a lot of ad hoc substitutions and tweaks to recipes I find in books and online, but I never write them down or iterate on the changes. This was my first attempt.

Lasercut Taster Glasses

Lasercutting projects may not be the sort you can do in the comfort of your own home, but it is worth seeking out a lasercutter when you have the right kind of project.

BrewDate 04.05.15: Getting Organized

It's been a couple of brews since my last BrewDate, but I finally got around to doing something I've been meaning to do for while. I've consolidated all my homebrewing gear into one place and organized my tools. In the few years we've been homebrewing, I've collected a lot of bottles, reusable malt containers, and equipment; much of which isn't used regularly.

Weekend Project: Spare Shirt Pillows

It's not quite spring yet, but it's so warm in the Bay Area that it feels like time for a little spring cleaning anyways. So why not turn some of your shirts that are unfit for humans to wear into fun pillows?

Tutorial: Yet Another Collapsible Lightbox

Teaching myself to take better photos meant I needed a light box to hide the general clutter of my house. If you explore Instructables (or just Google it), you'll find a huge variety of homemade light boxes, but none of them were exactly what I wanted, so I decided to put together my own.

BrewDate 01.17.15: An Apollo-Hopped Pale

Welcome to the first in a series of posts about my homebrewing activities. My husband and I have been brewing extract beer for a few years now, but recently the recipe-creating bug has bitten me and I'm beginning to explore beyond kits and recipe books.

Hot Jenever Toddy

The Hot Jenever Toddy is based on a classic Hot Toddy or a Hot Gin Toddy. The full herbal flavor of the liquor complements the spices typically added to these beverages and works well with both honey and sugar. Jenever is a strong hard liquor distilled from maltwine and a blend of botanicals (mostly juniper berries).
