    DIY Coptic Stitch Bound Notebook

    When an artist derives a painting or such from someone else, let's say Van Gogh, it is proper to note somewhere that the piece is "such and such after Van Gogh". This is less of a big deal with widely famous art unless you try to pass it off as a master original. The best way to learn is to copy or derive from the art of other people. In this case, Hafsah does not need to credit the pinterest artist because it is not her original art either, it is the original famous artwork of Japanese artist Hokusai. I only bring it up so people can become aware of the rest of Hokusai's artwork. Many people already know this artwork of Hafsah is a derivative of the original of Hokusai because it is so famous. I have derived concepts from Hokusai but it is so changed that it can't pos...

    I think canned gel fuel would be safer, last longer and be just as enjoyable. These gel fuel cans are often used for fireplaces, tabletop fire lamps, and even outdoor faux fire logs.

    Good instructions for making this book.I guess your inspiration for this cover is from Japanese artist Hokusai. He has inspired me also. This is from the famous Hokusai painting "The Great Wave off Kanagawa." Also, know as "The Wave" or "Great Wave, this is a very famous painting. So, here is credit to Hokusai. : )

    Image Transfer to Wood

    A lot depends on if your printer uses pigment ink, solid, dye based ink or other kind of ink. Certain inks smudge more than others and some fade easier. I would ask an expert about what ink and printer works best. : )

    pulled pork recipe

    No, I have the best way! (Just kidding). I pressure cook my roast. Shortens the cooking time by about half or more. It makes a tender roast and locks in the flavor. We don't use rubs or herbs of any kind. We love the flavor of the pork. We make carnitas tacos. Pork in a corn tortilla topped with pico de gallo. If you like crispy pork, just throw some in a dry frying pan and roast it until it becomes crisp. YUM. Or, stick it under the broiler for same.

  • Amazing Homemade Pizza Dough

    I have never heard of dough falling after this amount of time. Some people even proof their dough for 24 hours. In the winter I put the covered dough in the warmest room of the house.You can put it on the oven with the light on also.This dough can even be proofed in the the refrigerator so there may be a problem with your ingredients or other issue if your dough is falling. That just does not normally happen at all unless the dough is moved or tampered with in some way.In Italy, it is very common for dough to be proofed overnight or longer.I doubt proofing has anything to do with where you live. : )

  • Amazing Homemade Pizza Dough

    I let my dough proof overnight or for 12 to 14 hours. It makes a wonderful no knead dough. You can also make bread from it in the oven or a French (Dutch) oven.Just make it before bedtime cover in an oiled bowl, preferably wood, and the next morning you have a nice proofed dough you can use in the day or evening. : )
