do as Superman does!
That of course means we needed superhero capes for Burning Man this year.
I whipped up a couple capes from a skirt I wore on the playa last year and the free t-shirts Chris and I got from volunteering at Bluesfest. If you'd like to see how I did it, I've made an instructable for it here.
For gifts I thought it would be nice to make people Superman patches from the remainder of the red t-shirts. I've cut out what seems like million S shields, but I've still got to sew them to a yellow backing.
A 2000 Ford E-150, she's had a pretty rough life. She's been an airport shuttle bus and hauled countless lengths of hardwood for a flooring company. But life is about to get much better as she's now been tasked with taking us on an epic road trip.
When I first saw this diy tutorial, it sounded too good to be true. I immediately thought of Burning Man. Could we really bring the gift of ice cream to the playa without power and with little more than a few everyday ingredients and ice?
It turns out we can!
We tested it out tonight and were rewarded with a delicious treat.
Step 1: Fill jar with coarse salt and ice. Put cream, sugar and vanilla in a ziploc bag in the jar.
Step 2: Shake it like a polaroid picture!
Step 3: Remove bag from the jar.
Step 4: Enjoy delicious ice cream!
Now we just need to collect a bunch of jars so we can share frozen dessert with the citizens of Black Rock City.
If we have enough time, I'd also like to decorate the jars so they are more likely to become useful containers and not moop.
