Thanksgiving Left Overs and Preparing for the Holidays

" Religious folk worldwide observe many seasonal days of celebration during the month of December. Most are religious holy days, and are linked in some way to the winter solstice." So starts the overview on the Religious Tolerance Site, go check it out. 

1999 Apple and Candied Apple one page Tute    
GingerBread House Index: 12-10-03. Cured bits or Uncured bits which is best? 


Use New Ice with the New Orange Tute and get sugared citrus, a holiday favorite from the days before refrigeration. 


11-29-03-Demo: Holiday Cooking: A whole day of making mini foods. Links to relevant tutes. 

12-03-03: Sandwich Earrings, the quick How To on making a sandwich. Make your mini food "to go" by making your mini food into beads. 

Cured with a Finish, check out the difference with the Iced Lemonade with and without a coat of finish. Use Future, or a discount acrylic floor polish, or use flecto verathane if you want. I want things cheap so I use the discount floor polish. 

Lemonade Review: I've been wanting to build a section reviewing Iced Lemonade.

12-04-03: Cured but with no Finish on them yet.  

Indian Corn: See the 1998 link for the original Indian Corn experiment.  Your Kwanzaa mini display wouldn't be complete without some . It's easier than you think.

That's a website that is devoted to Kwanzaa and I
admire the principles that this celebration honors.
The principle I admire the most is to honor

"Kuumba (Creativity) To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it. "

As artists we are the cultural glue in our community. When we allow ourselves to be creative we are making our individual communities more beautiful.

It is the focus of CITY-o-Clay to nurture and encourage each list member to believe it is not only their right but their duty to be creative. In so doing we are making the world a better place.

Natasha Bananas

Miniaturists can take a page out of the beader's book and use the Natasha trick to make mini food. This example uses the under ripe banana colors. Change the color and you can do French fries, with the brown crispy edges.
