I admit it, I'm a grown up who loves all things Harry Potter and I don't care WHO knows it! (Wow...that felt good!) I'm a huge fan of the books and movies, as many are and this was a fun opportunity to pay a bit of tribute! This polymer clay photo transfer piece was created for the PCAGOE July competition. The theme for July's is "Show time" so I picked one of my favorite movies, HP and the Order of the Phoenix.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

We've recently joined the Etsy Bloggers team and one of the things we do is promote each other's work through our individual blogs. Each month there is a different EtsyBlogger who gets featured. This month it's: TulipsTreasureBox. Her shop consists of many beautiful jewelry items, which she uses the method of "bead woven" in almost all her designs. It's hundreds of tiny seed beads woven together to make necklaces, earring, bracelets, ect....She also sells jewelry supplies and makes purses as well. Very talented indeed. So please be sure to check out her shop, there's a little something for everyone!
This is our favorite grilling recipe. It’s the greatest marinade for just about everything. We use it to marinade steaks, or any kind of beef, chicken and pork. It makes the meats tender and juicy. A little bit goes a long way too! Bon Appetite!
WORLDS GREATEST MARINADE
3/4 cups Olive oil (this is really the best to use)
1/2 cup Soy sauce
1/4 cup Red Wine vinegar
1/4 cup lemon juice (fresh or store bought)
2 TBL. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. salt, pepper and parsley (fresh or dried)
1 TBL. Dry Mustard
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Mix all the ingredients together and shake very well. Refrigerate.
It’s best if you wait a couple of hours before using, to let all the ingredients sit together.
