1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Orange is the new black swap on: June 12, 2014 06:54:57 PM
I love this show. Is there any interest is doing a swap with this show as the theme? There are so many show quotes and ideas. I would love a shirt with Pennsatucky or crazy eyes haha
I would host and use 3 points as requirements.
2  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / bead/glass blowers can you direct me... on: December 12, 2013 09:38:22 AM
I had someone ask me about bead/glass blowing since they know I do crafts but I am clueless on this subject since I have never done it before. I told her I would ask here!
Where is/are great beginner website(s), book or brand products to try? How about some companies to check for products? Anything info you can provide will be appreciated! I fuse glass but am just a beginner myself and although blowing glass and making beads sounds cool I have plenty of other crafts I am tackling.  Grin

Thanks!!

Details of swap: Time for another round of Coffee me up! It has been a year so I am hoping there are some people interested in getting a coffee fix this winter. Last time it was required that a mug was sent but this time I am changing it up to a coffee accessory. An accessory might include a spoon rest, coffee container, a French press, mini grinder, coffee recipe book, etcI know some of these may be out of the price range so these are only ideas to get you started unless you are a savvy shopper!
I will not be allowing anyone with negative feedback to join the swap.
Participants will be sending:
1)   Approximately one pound (LB) of coffee (ground or whole bean) preferable something local to your area. I know many bags are 12 oz so please try to send between 12-16 oz of coffee.
2)   A purchased coffee accessory of $10-15 value.
3)   Three points of crafted items. Please see point system explanation below. This is just a basic guideline. You can make a large, a medium and a small, 3 smalls, whatever mix you would like as long as it covers the 3 point requirement.
   some ideas for items to make are:
   mug rugs
   decorated coffee jars (etched ,painted etc)
   coffee cozies
   treats to go with coffee (biscuits, scones)
   wall art-needle art, mixed media etc
   coffee recipe book
   jewelry

9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Cold process soap question on: January 24, 2012 03:21:21 PM
I have made hot process soap and I can tell if it is not ready by the taste test but on the cold process I cannot tell. I decided to give it a test even though it has only been a bit over a week just to see what it was like but I did not get any tingly zap taste.
Is there any other tell tale? I know I could just wait it out 4-6 weeks but I thought for sure I would get that taste zap like I do when I hot process.
Any suggestions or things I should know?
It smells really good too. Chocolate coffee soap. mmmmm Grin
