Origami Box Tutorial

Origami Box Tutorial


This is my favorite go to easy box when I need one for something small fast.  Follow the video steps below.

You will need 2 pieces of paper.  I recommend card stock. You will cut the card stock to squares that are 8″ & the other piece to 8-1/2″.  You can make any size box. You will just need to size the paper up accordingly.

IMG_4331

You will cut the card stock to squares that are 8″ and the other piece to 8-1/2″.

Then Fold the paper in half both ways.

Then fold each corner into the center.

Fold all four corners into the center.

Then Fold the side up to the center, do both sides this way.

Then Unfold and start forming your box.

Fold the sides in and then the ends up

Then you will fold the end up and over creating a sort of lock. You can put tape or glue here if you want to.

Then do the same to the other end of the box.

Complete the steps again for the other piece of the box. Or use the box as a lil dish.

The pieces fit nicely together

You can decorate the box.

Does Natural Weed Killer Work?

Does Natural Weed Killer Work?


I have been wondering if natural weed killer works.  I really don’t want to use any products with glyphosate.  It has been linked to so many bad things happening in the environment.  So I thought let’s do a test. Try out the natural stuff see if works.
Recently we relandscaped our front yard area that is in our large circle drive.  We live in Southern California in the coastal city of Oceanside.  I would describe our climate as fairly dry and but coastal and moderate.   When we relandscaped our circle drive. We dug out the existing dead grass and a few other plants that were not really looking very good.  Then we laid down weed cloth. Then over the weed cloth, we unloaded several loads of gravel.  The gravel was also donated by a friend of our landlord so that was wonderful. Then once we got the gravel spread out we went back and added plants.  I put out a notice on Nextdoor asking if anyone had any large Foxtail agaves I could have for free and low and behold one of my neighbors had a bunch.  So we picked them up and profusely Thanked my good-hearted neighbor and proceeded with planting the agaves.  We made holes in the weed cloth and dug out enough soil and then inserted the foxtail agaves. It was pretty easy and cleaned up the space from looking rundown to having some curb appeal.

I don’t seem to have a before photo but here is a pic with the weed cloth installed.IMG_8566

Here is a during the process photo.

Here is a completed photo.

Well after having hauled and heaved 3 truckloads of gravel on this frontyard and then to see weed springing up let’s just say I was disappointed in my weed cloth.  So upon the discovery of weeds, we decided we need an easy way to spray them and get rid of them. So hence the need to try the natural weed spray as mentioned above. So here are some photos of the invading weeds.

IMG_1286

IMG_4173

I purchased a sprayer from Harbor Freight. And I went ahead and just wrote the recipe right on to my sprayer.

IMG_6763

c69897ac9a18f9e2667068a5595bf917

Here is the recipe I used

Although I didn’t have Dawn I used Ajax Grapefruit Dishsoap because that’s what I had under the sink.  And I also used lavender-scented Epsom Salt, again that’s what I had. I bought my 1 gallon bottle of vinegar at Costco.
Here are my results after one day of spraying them.

IMG_6605

The center root has died just some long tendrils were still green.  They did die off after a few more days.

IMG_7099

These were dandelions. They to after one day were shriveled and dead. Now I need to go to work pulling all the dead weeds. So in this instance, I have shown here in Southern California in these conditions the Natural Weed Killer works well.  I will use it again.

The World of Bunko and Creating Community

The World of Bunko and Creating Community


Summer has kicked in full force over here and I thought it would be a good time to have a Bunko Reunion.  About 14 years we were living up in South Orange County, in the San Clemente Trestles Community. At the time I was home with my brand new baby girl Ginger.  I met some of the neighbor girls and they were starting a neighborhood Bunko group.  Not knowing what Bunko was I had to get an explanation which went something like this.  We get a group of women together, you put in $10 dollars towards the game

The host provides apps and drinks and a few of the players walk away with winnings. We all have a good time visiting and each month a different person hosts. For being a stay at home Mom fairly new to the area, it sounded awesome. It was some much-needed adult interaction. Our group got together for about 6-7 years on a monthly basis. Let me tell you having those women to relate to and talk parenting and adulting was a godsend. These girls supported our jewelry business over the years as well. Our Bunko nights turned into themed events with costumes and often included Holiday bunko with spouses so we could meet everyone’s other halves. We also branched off into Halloween Parties and Birthday parties.  Many of these women became my closest friends.

Recently Paperless Post hit me up to try out their product and I thought it sounded like a great opportunity to get the Bunko group back together. Let’s do this.

So Paperless Post is an online invitation web site.  You purchase coins or credits and then you can set up an event. You start with creating an online invitation and input your guest’s emails. The site tracks RSVPs and your guest’s questions. There is also a message board where you can post photos as well as set up reminder emails, so your guests don’t forget!

Paperless2 Here is an example of my invite.  Paperless Posts offers cool on-trend templates like this one.

Murals in your home

Murals in your home


So years ago I had come across this image on Pinterest for a Chinoiserie Mural.  The designer had painted it on her wall.  The design is based on a wallpaper & fabric design by Schumacher Chiang Mai. I have seen the design around on various sites and admired it.  And after seeing the cost of the wallpaper a square ft. I thought I want to create a similar mural someday. Chiang-Mai-Mural-gorgeousshinythings

Here is an example of the Schumacher Chiang Mai Wallpaper

f18fc025d6dd647b7e5ed754e9dde2dd

So when we moved back to Oceanside, California from Hawaii, I thought this would be a good time.  My husband Brad was waiting on the arrival of our shipping container from Hawaii, so we thought the perfect time to take on a mural.  Brad loosely sketched the design on the wall freehand and then we went to work painting the design with various acrylic paints

The progression is from complete to start below, we painted the wall a nice blue that matched our retro stove.

So our design is based on our loose interpretation of Schumacher’s Chiang Mai Print. I just love this fabric.  It is a fabulous designer fabric textile and makes a great mural too.   If you’re interested in purchasing the fabric it can be purchased here at Decorator’s Best.

Boho Bedding

Boho Bedding


I have a love of textiles. I absolutely love fabric and pattern design. Pattern, design, and color are usually what draws my eye to something I see and adore.  I have been playing with different types of pattern design and my own creative creations.  I just love embroidery and these patterns are some that caught my eye that I thought would be cool in another format

So I reworked them into larger scale designs and bedding.  They are for sale up on my SilverBotanica.com site as well.

Here are some of the designs. I think they would look really good say in your Bali Vacation Rental.  Maybe on a cool hand carved teak bed.

How can we make Trump’s Wall a good thing for America

How can we make Trump's Wall a good thing for America

So last night I was thinking about this post I saw on FB by Don Freeman:

And then I got to thinking “What are some of the ideas that Trump has that people object too”, and how could we create something that could be a win vs bad. And how could we get more people behind the idea and make it a great idea.  So my wheels starting turning and briefly a photo I saw somewhere went through my head of a pink wall described as what Trump’s wall might look like.

donald-trump-mexico-border-wall-pink-730115

And I thought no that’s lame.  What if this wall, could have all sorts of “GOOD” packed into and people would want it built.

What if the wall was large,

sort of imagine The Great Wall of China.

great-wallofchina

But a modern version of it.

solartunnel

And What if the wall was built from “good things” liked recycled plastic that they pulled out of the ocean like this product below by ByFusion from New Zealand.

plastic-brick

replast-wall

Here is a video on the product.

And what if the top of the wall has a Solar Road way on the surface, like this idea by Solar Roadways:

solarroad3

Where the surface of the road looked like this.

solarroad2

Or this, heck Solar Roads already has a contract with US DOT in place.

solar-road

And what if this solar road on Trump’s wall did things like this:

solarroad1

And in areas where bridges are needed what if the wall looked something like this:

wind-bridge

And generated wind energy.

wind-bridge2

We could take this wall even further, what if the sides of the recycled plastic bricks are clad in Tesla’s Solar Roof Tiles like this:

tesla-tile

How much energy do you think this wall could generate?  Maybe it would be 100% LEED Certified?

tesla-powerwall

And last but not least what if this wall had two more components, such as providing low income housing or housing for homeless within the wall, maybe something like this:

housing

And last but not least what if we built Trump’s wall by putting all the unemployed millennials that love tech and can’t find jobs, to work creating this wall of the future that maybe we should rename Trump’s Smartwall.

millenial1

Put America back to work.

millenial2

And so in closing, I side with Senator Elizabeth Warren, “Let’s put aside our differences and work with Trump on this task.”

And let’s build things that we can all get behind and create a lot of good..

Gluten Free Quinoa Burgers

Gluten Free Quinoa Burgers


Quinoa BurgersSo this is a large make ahead recipe.  Makes about 18 – 20+ Quinoa Burgers.

Preheat oven to 350.

For Quinoa:
3 C Quinoa
6 C Water
Himalayan Pink Sea Salt – pinch or two

Take 3 Cups uncooked quinoa and put in rice cooker with 6 Cups water add pinch of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt. Cook.

Ingredients:
*When I made these, I halved the recipe below so was just easier to work with. But made two batches to use all my Quinoa. Again, I just made it up so I wasn’t following a recipe at the time.  The numbers below are me guesstimating on what I used total.

12 Eggs
1-1/2 C Mashed Potato Flakes1/2 Onion Minced
2 tsp Minced Garlic (I keep a jar in my fridge of this)
2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 T Grated Parmesan Cheese (like the kind you put on your spaghetti)
2 T Steak Seasoning

So I mixed half a batch first.

Mixing bowl

In mixing bowl

Whisk 6 eggs
add 1 tsp garlic,
onion
3/4 C Mashed potato flakes
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 T Grated Parmesan 1T Steak Seasoning
Stir in half of your cooked quinoa.  Mix thoroughly, if it looks to moist add in more potato flakes.

Shape into burgers.

I used a mini pie press like this to shape the burgers. I also found spraying it with non-stick cooking spray helped to keep it clean each time.  I also washed it every 5-6 times to keep it going well.

Repeat batch above to make the second batch.
Pie Press

I then placed burgers on Silicone Mat lined cookie sheets and baked for about 30 minutes.
I winged it here.  Checking every so often until burgers looked good and cooked like the photo above.

Upon completion, I packed some in twos in my Sealer and then a large bag full in the freezer with parchment between patties for grabbing at lunch etc.

Pirate Themed Murder Mystery Dinner Birthday Party in Hawaii

Pirate Themed Murder Mystery Dinner Birthday Party in Hawaii


My Daughter wanted to have a murder mystery dinner birthday party.  So we researched a few websites that supplied Murder Mystery Dinner Themes. We ended up getting this one called Murder Among The Matey’s.  I let my daughter go to the website and pick one of the themes.  I liked the Pirate theme since we had done a pirate circus themed birthday a few years back.  So purchased the Mystery Dinner online and downloaded the Pdf’s.  I will say that the pdf’s are extensive.  So check the pages numbers before just hitting print.  The main pdf is over 100 plus pages of Pirate Goodness, so be ready, you will need to print about 75% of the pages.  We started out with invitations.  I loved the message in a bottle idea.  Which ended up being harder than I thought.  Mostly because we live on the Big Island of Hawaii and our access to arts & crafts supplies is limited.  So bottles are hard to find.  I thought I would try our local Ben Franklin for cool bottles.  On the mainland, I would have hit the Dollar stores.  At Ben Franklin, I found some interesting bottles but they were close to $5 or $6 a piece.  That was overpriced in my book.  So then I thought what if I just bought soda in glass bottles.  I was thinking Jones Soda or something along those lines.  So I hit the local Target where here in Hawaii you do a lot of your grocery shopping at.  No Glass Bottled Soda. Not a single drop.  So I hit Safeway.  I found Creme soda in 6 six packs and on special that week.  So I bought 2 six packs.

IBC_Creme-Soda-BottlesThis brand of soda also didn’t have labels so double score. I didn’t have to fight with removing bottles.  I tasked the kids in that neighborhood with drinking as much soda as they could and burping contests.  The gladly excepted since we don’t but soda around these parts much.  My Daughter Ginger wanted to antique the bottles a bit to look like they had been rolling around in the sand.  So she sprayed them with a Glass Frosting Spray paint that I had on hand. Glass-frosting-Krylon

We modified the invites provided by Night of Mystery and added our party information.  We also burned, antiqued, trimmed and then rolled the invites and put them in the bottles with a little sand and beach glass.  I had picked up corks while at Ben Franklin which ended up being a hair too small so we bedazzled them with river jade, problem solved

Murder Among the Mateys Message in a bottle invitation

I was a bit overwhelmed with getting a grasp on how the whole murder mystery dinner worked. So I suggested to my daughter that she figure it out, which she did.  Our other family friend also offered to help.  So they got all the paper stuff printed out and we got things like safety pins so guest could pin on their name tags.  You need to have 2 sets of envelopes for each guest and things like fake money and evidence.  That go into the A & B Envelopes.

 

I focused on decorating and the food for the party which are my favorite things. Since we live in Hawaii and good party supplies are hard to find I utilize my online resources.

Here is how the decor and food turned out. I utilized my Pinterest board for Pirate Ideas. The  Night of Mystery has a Pinterest Board called Murder Among The Matey’s with lots of good ideas too.

I will say that after the party we talked about how it went etc.  I thought all the conversation que cards you are given to help with figuring out the murderer etc didn’t really help much.  We all had fun talking like pirates and mingling.  But, in the end it all seemed to come down to the evidence.  Which hardly anyone saw because it was given out in the second set of envelopes.  And 90% of didn’t even look at it.  I wish maybe that I would have used real evidence Sword or etc.  and that the appropriate people had it and we all discovered it and passed it around or the likes. I feel prepared for next time around.

New Stationery Note Cards

New Stationery Note Cards


Well being that my training and passion for years has been graphic design I am drawn to paper goods.  I just love all things paper.  In my 20’s,  from my sign shop, I use to design and produce very unique original wedding invitations and announcements.  I produced them all myself.  They were beautiful with combination of hand cut folders and unique papers,  ribbons and dried leaves or punched shapes etc.  Now can find this type of announcement at stores like Paper Source or even Michael’s. 20 years ago those stores didn’t exist in my world and my creations were one of a kind.  I use to devour paper sample booklets that my mom had at her graphic design studio.  I would ask for all the old ones so I could use them for things.  I would cut them up and make cards and hand-bound booklets and all sorts of creations. Just like everything I do, I immersed full force. I took paper making classes, marbling paper classes, and book-making classes.  I would hoard all sorts of interesting things, like copper garden tags or pressed flowers or antique seed packets to use in cards.  Then the scrapbooking sensation took over which was interesting.  It took my custom invitation making and sort of made it not so special, or maybe I lost interest because it had become mainstream.  But it also created a lot more stores with all sorts of fun supplies that made finding things much easier to find. I went on to making other things and kept making fabulous fun creating for my own events.

. Or you can send these cards to friends and family and share these little art pieces with them.  So this is part of the reason I am drawn to greeting card and stationery artists like Anahata Katkin of Papaya Art  and also Fiona Richards of Cartolina  The aesthetic these two artist’s use definitely inspires me to no end. I have my favorites of their designs sprinkled around the walls in my studio.  And I also sell their designs in my store SilverBotanica.

So I am excited to announce I have finally created my first start of a line of cards to sell in our store SilverBotanica in Honomu, Hawaii.  I hope that this is just the beginning for this endeavor because like many things I do I have a lot of ideas of where I would like to go with making cards.  My grandfather Herb was a printer and maybe it was the fascination of visiting his print shop as a kid, that made me interested in it.  In highschool, I went to a high school that had a Vocation school on the premise and I took Printing and Graphics.  I loved every second of it.  We did all the artwork by hand and with old typesetting machines and we even had the fist generations of Mac in that class.  We then did all the stat work ourselves, developing the camera ready artwork.  Doing color separations all by hand.  Then we even burned the plates for the printing press.  And printed all of our designs.  We made note pads and 4 color greeting cards, along with t-shirt screen printing. My other grandfather Russell Daigle use to sell greeting cards for years and years.  The brand he sold were called Norcross.  My grandmother and he would always send a card for almost every holiday that deserved one.  So I kind of feel like it runs in my blood.  So it’s my time.  I have finally had some time to develop some of my ideas.   I had a company in the states print them for me, my days of running printing presses were short.  I prefer the design aspect. This first batch is in the Chinoiserie Style.  Many of the cards feature a Foo Dog water color painting that my husband Brad painted and then I have added a variety of layered imagery and patterns with them.  The cards are available in note card packs of 5 cards and 5 envelopes and are blank on the inside.  You can purchase them at SilverBotanica and on our etsy store here.

How to Make Crab Rangoon

How to Make Crab Rangoon


Crab-Ragoon9-Alicia-Hanson-Blog

Crab Rangoon is a favorite appetizer that I have come across in my culinary travels.  I first had it a Thai restaurant in the US, where it was called crispy parcels.  And typically Thai restaurants are where I have found it most successfully.  I have heard that it was originally found on the Polynesian-style menu of Trader Vic’s, probably another reason I love it.

So for this recipe, you will need:

Cream cheese (really you can use any style and even Tofutti) For this recipe use the whole rectangular package.
Imitation Crab Meat (if you have an Ikea around you can get Crab in a metal squeeze tube)Won Ton Wrappers at room temperature
Oil for frying – here I am using Vegetable but you can use Canola, Peanut or Coconut
Lemon Juice about a 1 tablespoon
Plum Sauce
Salt and pepper to taste about 1/2 tsp each.
Plastic Pastry Bag
Cookie sheet layered with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.

Cut up about 1/2 the package of the imitation crab and dice it into small pieces put into your stand up mixer bowl
Then put the cream cheese in your stand up mixer, use the whole tub or bar.
Turn mixer on low speed. Mix in the Lemon juice and salt and pepper.
Once the mixture is thoroughly blended.  Remove from mixer. Put mixture into a plastic pastry bag.
Now is a good time to get your oil warmed up if you haven’t done so already.  I put mine on a medium temperature.

Now take wonton wrappers out and squeeze a dollop onto the center of each wrapper.

Then Pinch together two opposing corners

And then the other corners and give the wrapper a twist, while pressing down.  I like to squeeze close any openings in wrapper.

Crab-Ragoon5

Take your parcels and place them on your spoon and slowly lower them in your hot oil. Leave them in the oil and keep an eye on them so they don’t get too brown.  I like mine on the lighter side.  As shown in the photo below.  Once cooked take them out carefully on your spoon and put them on a cookie sheet with layered with paper towels to absorb any excess oil

Serve your Crab Rangoon on a platter with a dipping sauce of Plum Sauce.  I only use about half of the filling for this recipe.  I like to seal up my pastry bag with my Foodsaver machine and stick the bag in the freezer until the next time I am ready to make crab Rangoon again.

Thanksgiving Leftovers Quiche

Thanksgiving Leftovers Quiche


IMG_5454

I am not sure about you but I like to get a little creative with my Thanksgiving leftovers.  This year I decided to create a yummy quiche.  My goal after Thanksgiving is to coast as long as possible on the leftovers. This one was so good I wish I would have made two.  The amazing thing with quiche is that for the most part, you can’t really go wrong.

Gather your leftovers, mine included

Cooked Turkey pieces (1 Cup or More)
Mashed Potatoes (2 Cups)

Then I gathered your typical quiche ingredients.
Pie Crusts – I like to save time and buy these premade.  I have had great luck with Pillsbury Pie Crusts and many of the generic brands as well. I like to take them out of the box and let them come to room temperature before I begin. For this recipe, you just need one.  Go ahead and read the directions on the box to cook the crust.

Pilsbury Piecrusts5 Eggs
1 Cup Milk I use Coconut Milk.
1/2 Bar of Cream cheese you can really use any kind you like or even Cottage Cheese.
1 Cup Grated Cheese (I like to use cheddar/jack combo)
Fresh Spinach Leaves about a Cup
1/2 of an onion diced
1 TBLSP of Butter
1/4 tsp of Nutmeg and or Vegesalt
Other items to consider adding:
Mushrooms
Broccoli,
Squash
Zucchini
Bacon

Prepare your pie crust as directed on the box.
For the Quiche Preheat your oven to 350°, if you just prepared your crust mostly likely your oven is all ready to go.

Using a skillet melt the butter and saute your onions.
Add your Turkey leftovers and any of the veggies you have decided  to add (in the photo above I used spinach only)
Saute the items for a couple minutes while stirring regularly.

I like to make my quiche in my stand up mixer so in your mixing bowl:
Add the cream cheese and eggs and milk, slowly crank the mixer up in speed so the cream cheese dissolves nicely into the eggs and milk, then add the mashed potatoes.
In your cooked pie crust add the items from the skillet,
Then top with 3/4 C of cheese saving a bit to put on the top of the quiche.
Then add your liquid mix over the cooked leftovers

Top the top of the quiche off with the remaining cheese.

Put your leftover goodness into the oven at 350° for 30 – 40 minutes, until the quiche looks firm and the yummy smell drives you crazy.
Remove from oven let cool, then devour. The best thing about quiche is it’s great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
