I got the idea for this topic from another forum I visit now and again.

Basically, almost everyone has some kind of artsy craft. It does not have to art in the traditional sense of sketches or paintings(although that stuff certainly is welcome here!). Some people build things out of wood, or sculpt with metal and clay. Or photography. Pretty much, if you have done it and it is pretty...post a picture and describe it here!

I will start off. ^_^

Basically a pate choux swan dusted lightly with powdered sugar filled with Grand Marnier creme filling lazily floating on a pool of raspberry coulis, with white and milk chocolate ganache star garnishes. I had to make about...55 or so of these one year for a New Years Eve party at a restaurant I work at. Go me?
Oh, that also totally proves that I am a cook person. And could bribe Dan with such items some day for..various things.

Now it's your turn!

Hmmm, very interesting. Well, let me give this a go. This is my beautiful cat, Scout. One day I noticed that the marking on her nose resemble the Legend of Zelda Oracle! So I settled her down (she can be very rowdy ) and took a picture, and I made the red outline with photo editor. Here you go!

Well, i don't know if this would count but my one and only craft is drumming. Basically i have been drumming for my whole life. I have turned down quite a few bands who were trying to hook me up with a deal.

I totally suck at crafts ;..;

My whole life I drew but when it came to putting something together, it'd just turn out like...crap.

So I stick to drawing!

Some times at school when i get really bored i can make some pretty cool sutff. Like this year, we made theese Co2 rocket things, and so my class made mini rockets and used straws to fire them, but straws suckd, you couldnt aim and it didnt go far, so i took apart a mechanical pencil my teacher sells for tickets, i got this spring and found a rubber band, the first time i tried to tie them together the rubber band broke, so It was a small bow and rocket i guess lol.

I have many different crafts, but I just started a Deviant Art profile, and this is the first thing I got around to uploading. I made this about a year ago for my friend's birthday.

I feel like a traitor, because my real craft is weaving... I was just lazy and put the other up first. In reality, I have a ton of crafts...
