The oil contains almond oil as the base, cinnamon, pine, mandarin, whole cloves, frankincense and myrrh in various amounts. I love blending oils Smiley

I bet that smells great! I love the addition of mandarin orange - that's a scent that always puts me right back at Christmas about age 7 or 8.

And actually, I thought she knew I was a Wiccan. Apparently she just thought I was weird or something. -_-

My bet is that this was more disturbing to your mom than to you, as she probably realized that she knew even less about you than she realized. Parents are often in a constant state of catch-up with their kids for the last few years before they go their separate  ways!

 It's sort of the opposite to the experience of many gay people when they finally get up enough courage to come out to their parents, only to have Mom say "Oh I know, sweetie. We were wondering when you were going to tell us!" People see what they expect to see, and anything else has to be pointed out to them, sometimes more than once.

Cake mix cookies?? Who knew? This is why Craftster is so useful! Cheesy

Squire_inaria, what is in your Yule oil? I'm betting cinnamon!

i have sent! after 30 mins in line at the post office... Angry
Yikes! I wouldn't have had to wait at all today except that the woman ahead of me had somehow turned the mailing of six Christmas cards into an incredibly complicated transaction. And then she hadn't sealed the envelopes, and one hadn't even been addressed yet. I think the clerk was glad to see another customer so he had an excuse to hurry her along!

Don't worry, Fullmoon, if you're confused about the different kinds of sage; lots of people are.

The sage you cook with is Salvia, and the sage used by Native peoples to smudge with (white sage, blue sage or sagebrush) is part of the large Artemesia family, which also includes wormwood, tarragon and mugwort. In other words, they're two totally different plants. Nevertheless, different varieties of Salvia have come to be widely used as a smudging herb too, and frequently when you buy smudge sticks that's what they contain. They have similar scents (which is why the North American plant came to share the name "sage") and colour, though Salvia officinalis has long, wrinkled leaves and Artemesia ludoviciana has small leaves like thyme.

Does smudging with common sage have the same magical effect as sagebrush? There's a pretty wide range of opinion on this, from "absolutely not" to "makes no difference". I look for native sage when I can find it for sale, but if not, I have a huge bush of common sage in my garden, and use that instead.

The one that can't be substituted, I think, is Russian sage (Perovskia atriplicifolia). It's not related to either of the other sages (it's actually from Afghanistan, not Russia) and has a strong, camphorous scent that is quite different. Very pretty blue flowers, though.

I've got everything together and will mail tomorrow. After worrying that I had made such a big stocking that I wouldn't have enough to fill it properly, I found that I had to pack the stuff into it and even then it spills out a bit. And then the only box in the house big enough is only just big enough, so it's pretty tightly packed. No danger of "contents may settle in shipping"!

Wulf are you a costumier??

No, I'm a prop builder, but I used to do costume accessories, and the line between props and costumes is pretty fuzzy at the best of times.

Wow! Another thing I can add to the "Why I love Craftster" post is that other people's lives show how meaningless my own problems actually are! My strongest wishes for Strength and Wisdom to you ladies, and I admire your ability to craft through even this turmoil!

Myself, I'm pretty much done my package for Ffrogg. I just have to try to find a working camera to take a couple of photos, and a box big enough to hold it all. Should be in the mail on the weekend.

Brilliant! If your cousin's wife doesn't recognize Conan immediately, then she's either too dumb or too young. It's a great likeness!
