Well, since my little sister graduated from 9Th grade (Which is the end of middle school here) we had to have a little larger graduation party than usual. My grandma made the cookies, my mom the fudgy cake and the vanilla-fruit-cake to the left and made the fudge cupcakes and the fruity, fake cheesecake.
The cheesecake is my own recipe, a mix between regular and frozen cheesecake whit a lot of shortcuts (since I am quite lazy )
And under all of the fruit it looks kinda like this... This is the first one I made. Both the boy and me wanted the strawberries in the middle, resulting in tacky cutting xD
Embroidered pendant made mostly just to play around with color, technique and shapes. Made with colors that I usually don't use and first time doing fringes! The first cabochon has a pyramid shape, which was quite hard to bezel, the other cab has an almondy shape, if you cant see it ^^
Stitched on ultrasuede with cardboard lining. Its made with seed beads in two different shades of brick red, green and bronze, white pearls, green aventurine for the cabochons and light green glass flowers. Its 13 cm long including fringe.
First time doing squarestitch, and I'll have to say, I enjoy it very much! Actually she's quite large for a pendant, 3x7,5 cm, which is why she's hanging is just a suede-band, anything more should have been to much. The endings is made by moi as well and it closes with just a simple toggel clasp.
I started her for a swap here on craftster, but the items we are suppose to do is mediums, and after putting about 7h work into this beauty, I didn't want to give her away ^^
I'm having a small problem with my soapmaking and i really hope someone can help me with it! I have been doing CP soap about four times, and all of them were failures :/ Im using the same basic recipe water, lye, olive-, coconut- and sunfloweroil. It makes a very good basic soap, it hardens and cures in right ways, the thing is that i cant get the fragrance to stay! Its so frustrating!!!! And i dont know what im doing wrong either!
Can someone please, PLEASE, give me some tips on how to keep the fragrance in my soaps, it feels so meaningless to make it without
