The Premise...

  • ***Make no craft purchases December 1, 2010 to November 30 2011
  • ***Use and create from existing supplies only
  • ***Small purchases to continue crafting (such as sewing needles) are acceptable
  • ***Trading items with others is legitimate since there's no net gain

Homemade Croissants

Look *very* very homemade. I started the process all excited, and ended up just wanting to be done about 2/3rds of the way through. Which sucks, because croissants take hours, so the last third ended up being an hour of torture. Since I've kind of gotten a "feel" for how this goes though, the next time (and there WILL BE a next time!!) it's sure to be much more enjoyable. And, they may even look a little more professional.

I *am* a little upset that I don't have a pastry brush. I think I did have one at one time, and The Hubby either washed it with dish soap (EWWW...soapy everything!) or thought it was a paint brush, or it just got thrown away because I've never been a pastry making kinda gal. So, I used a paper towel to be the pastry brush, and I guess that worked ok. I *did* think to myself that I should go BUY a pastry brush, but I think that falls under craft supplies, so I will resist. How many times this year will I be making croissants? How many times SHOULD I make croissants? Since no one else is really eating them, I suspect maybe once or twice more.


  1. No one ate them ???!!!!!!! They look yummy. Sudha says so too !!

  2. Nope. Madi tried one the first day, then after that I had them AAAAAAALLL to myself!
