They are wonderful. Are they very heavy? I've made charm bracelets with glass charms and pendants and they come out too heavy sometimes.

I made these for a handmade swap I'm doing with some ladies on another forum. I found the key and locket charms on clearance at Hobby Lobby, and the other beads were from a stash of Christmas presents.  Cheesy

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Best adhesive to preserve ribbon knots? on: April 25, 2010 09:52:46 PM
I'm working on some earrings, and stringing some beads on ribbon. I've tied knots where the jumpring connects to the ribbon and also where the bead dangles. I'm concerned that when I cut the ends of the knots that the knot itself won't hold long. Is there an adhesive that I can dab onto the knots so that they don't come undone?

Here's an example of what I mean with the knots: http://www.mayarts.com/content/assets/2009/06/6.8-bow5-2-lg.jpg

What would be best? I have these at home: modpodge, spray glue, sobo fabric glue, glue stick, or glue gun Cheesy  - will any of these work, or should I go out and pick up some E6000?

These are adorable and seem like they'd be fun to make. Your daughter is absolutely precious. Smiley

My friend is having a Christmas movie marathon at her house tomorrow, and I wanted to bring some goodies to bring us all together in the Christmas spirit. It's basically going to be me, my love, and her friends that I don't really know, so I wanted to bring cookies to help us all bond as we're watching movies together!

It was a really easy recipe; altogether, it only took me about an hour to make them. It was a simple sugar cookie recipe, but with a bit more flour added to make them puffier. I rolled them into balls and then rolled them in the cinnamon-sugar (3 tablespoons sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon).



And here's a close-up. I love how the sugar sparkles!



'Tis all! Merry Christmas!
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / No-Sew, non-traditional tree skirt, and a gold-and-red wreath! pics included :) on: November 12, 2008 10:49:51 AM
So, in our bedroom, my husband and I have an 18" pink tree. Smiley We wanted something as equally awesome for a tree skirt (to cover up the hideous base and wires). I discovered a fabulous placemat at Target for $3 and thought it would be perfect, my husband didn't agree because he didn't want a square tree skirt, but I did it anyway and he ended up loving it...and so it began:

Now, being that I can't sew, and I had the fabric glue right next to me, this only took about an hour (including drying time)!

Drying the cut edges:



Drying the hole-seams:



Close-up of the pattern:



All pretty:



And here's a wreath my husband made for us. All I contributed was the ribbon, really. Cheesy I think it's beautiful!



Thanks for looking!

That's cool. I've seen those around stores for, like, $30!

I know you can just buy glycerin soap and add food coloring, but how do you add scent?

It's just like adding color. In the aisle of soap-making in any craft store (where you would find the glycerin) there are fragrance oils. You can also use any essential oils (like peppermint and lavender). Smiley

By the way my sister's whole list is items from CVS. She's sending everyone photos of what she wants as well. She works there though Smiley.

I guess there are tons of weirdos!
