Made these this evening, also another rainbow cake (but doubled, so it's fatter.)
Sorry, not meaning to turn this into a food blog!

Thanks to my Society and Environment class, I have found out about Palm Oil. I'd seen the signs at the zoo but hadn't really put two and two together and understood what it meant or how many things have palm oil in them. Or the effects it has on the rainforests and therefore the globe. :(
I think this is a case of "I'd like to change something in my life to help this issue". It'll be really hard to cut all palm oil out of my life, but cutting down would be great. However it's really hard to figure out what has palm oil in it and what doesn't!
It's been suggested that one way to do it is to cook and grow more things yourself- I think I'm inspired. Not quite sure when I'll be able to do this, but I could even start with just biscuits to snack on, or making sure the tomatoes are planted this year.
Has anyone else in Australia reading this tried to grow a vegetable garden? What worked in the heat? What was worth the effort? Mum's always said that carrots and potatoes aren't worth the effort because we eat so many of them. I don't eat that many herbs, or sprouts. Maybe I should start. I'm a big fan of tomatoes. What else could I try for? Maybe things that my family eats (like cucumbers!) even if I don't.

Weird question, but does anyone have a pirate hook and a digital camera?http://www.flickr.com/photos/jenlala/1940928369/
I'd like some photos like this, with a pirate hook lifting things or grabbing things.
I'm teaching apostrophes, and I thought that pirate hooks might be a good representation of them for possessive apostrophes. You know, he grabs what he owns with his hook.
I would use the photo above (she's taken more) but it's all rights reserved and I have to be legal about this as it's going in a 'photo story' presentation on youtube.

The South Australian Miniature Enthusiasts are running their 24th Annual Festival of Miniatures and Dollhouses.
This year it's at a new venue:
Payneham Library Complex, Corner of OG Road and Turner Street, Felixstow.
It's on Saturday 8th August, Sunday 9th August, 10 am- 4.30 pm
Admission: $6 for adults, $5 concession, Children under 16: $3.
All proceeds go to the Women and Children's Hospital Foundation Wish List and other Children's Charities.
Come and see some stunning and interesting dollhouses (The feature this year is a French Chateau set in the 18th Century), have the chance to win a dollhouse, have a lucky dip, and shop at the many stalls.
For examples of dollhouse miniatures, see this!
I'll be there both days, shopping and looking around and chatting, and on Sunday I'll be volunteering- demonstrating and selling raffle tickets as well.
Any ideas on what to demonstrate, polymer clay wise?

|Stuff To Sell
Anyone in Adelaide want, or know anyone who wants, a car (Mitsubishi Magna TE Advance, 1997, 147,259 KM), a bed, desk, or fridge?
My friend's leaving the country and he needs to sell them within the next two weeks. I thought I'd use my contacts. :P

Question: If you saw me in the back of a police car, what would be the first reason that I'm probably there for that would pop into your head?

In your opinion, what makes a good friend?
What should a good friend never do? (other than the extremely obvious)
In your opinion, how do you go about making new friends? What sorts of things make people appealing as a friend, for example. What do you personally do to make new friends?
And, once you have friends, no matter how long or short term, how do you go about keeping them?

Perhaps predictably, it's not going very well. I'm only up to 3,000 words.

I've just spent the last few days working really hard on my Etsy shop (http://wwww.livinginthepast.etsy.com
, where I'm selling dollhouse miniatures. I've actually sold two things now! That was a bit scary but also hugely fun, sending out the parcels and whatnot. I'm glad that my things are sellable too, I've always been a bit nervous that my stuff is total crap, only worth it if people get it for free. In previous miniatures fairs, I only made about $27. I have made almost that much on Etsy in the past week. I sold a miniature sewing machine, that was designed to look like the little pretend ones that kids in the 50s used to play with, it was blue and white and I'd painted flowers and butterflies onto the white bits. I'd only made it a few days before, I think it had been on Etsy for about two days! The other was two icecream cones that I had made years back actually, but they'd only been on Etsy for a day as well! Hopefully they won't break in the mail... I think that the woman who bought those is actually a shop, looking at her buying history. Which is pretty exciting for me! Also guess what colour I've picked for my tissue paper? :P Yep, purple!

Does anyone have any idea how to make a TARDIS cake? Would just an ordinary sponge cake with blue icing work? Or should it be chocolate cake for added deliciousness? Does chocolate go okay with blue icing do you think? ... how would I even *do* the icing? Other than covering it blue I mean. I need the doors/windows/police phone box part... and the... flashy light on top.
