Round Robin Challenge: I Made That!

"Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon, or not at all."

-Harriet van Horne

For this edition of the RRC, Jennifer Robin, who authors, Robin's Woods, asks us to show off things we have made. How fun is that? I like doing crafts, but I haven't been doing as many this year as I have in the past. Photography, caring for Elvis and the same old, same old day to day pretty much eats my time. I even debated possibly sitting this one out, but in the end I reached into my archive and pulled out some photos of different projects I have done since blogging. As you probably know, I love to cook, and making up new recipes, so a few of those are featured below, and in the photo above you see what is probably my most interesting invention, her name is Clarice. Can you tell what she is made from? Well, if you look very close, you see yarn for hair, and her smile comes from a magic marker, her pretty blue earrings are made from beads, and in the upper right hand corner you see the shadow of a straw hat. But what is her face made out of?

Well, if you look even more closely, you will see a fake boob! Yep, that's right, Clarice is made from a fake boob, and has a nipple for a nose! One of a a box of 100 false boobages Alan found alongside the freeway, as he changed a tire one day! LOL. At one time I was making them and giving them away, and I even offered one to the winners of my MADLIBS game I sometimes featured on the AOL version of Ellipsis, but only one person, Phinney, ever requested it as their prize, so to date, only two people own an original Clarice... well, three if you include me. Personally, I think she is kinda cute. LOL. And she makes me smile, but that's just how my silly sense of humor goes. Life gets a little too serious sometimes, and Clarice reminds me to smile. :)

Gattina said...

Oh Carly the food in this entry looks wonderful! Thanks, now I'm suddenly starving and nothing around here looks anything like that!!
I love Clarice by the way :-)
I've been a bad photo challenger lately, but I'll be back soon.
Have a great weekend!

Sandra said...

Yummy, but do you have recipes to share? I would love to try to make several of what you've tempted us with! Thanks for sharing...

Janet said...

hahaha Clarice is wonderful! I'd be proud to own one. When I first saw the shot I was like...that's a b00b!!!

Your food shots are gorgeous, very well done!

Teena in Toronto said...

Those cookies look delish! Gimme some!

I played too :)

Jan said...

I totally missed on my guess for Clarice. My artist's eye saw a shell. The food looks devine. I've made the cookies, they're always a hit.

the teach said...

Carly, I thought it was a macaroni shell, duh! LOL!

Jennifer Robin said...

Very creative! Am I the only one who sees a similarity between Clarice's face and those peanut butter blossom cookies?

Kiva said...

Hey Carly,
I always look forward to your entries. I'm glad you didn't skip. Clarice is marvellous -- thought her face was a piece of salmon, but a boob? LOL I think I'll go make some veggie pizza now, yours looks awfully good.

Steven said...

I recall Clarice and the madlibs game from way back when. You've made me hungry. A creative soul is good for the soup :-)

Karen Funk Blocher said...

Clarice made me smile, too, and I realized what it was instantly. And the food, of course, looks great, especially the pizza. I'm glad you didn't sit this one out!

Wammy said...

I saw a sea shell. How funny are you...a fake boob. Wish I had tought of that. I need one for my neice who has been battleing breast cancer that has invaded other organs in her body. She owuld get a kick out of it. The food looks almost too good to eat! Thanskf or sharing. Now I want to learn to cook and how to take awesome shots of it.

Anonymous said...

One word - *Yummy*! This describes the food items in your photos. When will dinner be served?

Liz said...

Mmmmmmmmm........that food looks delish! When can I come over for dinner?

As for Clarice...I got such a kick out of her...hysterical! Especially since I know a Clarice & she is truly a boob! LOL
