I knew you'd love that little jar of fruit!  I also received from Tygermane.  She sent me really lovely and useful things.  First up are buttons, bits/bobs and some silver colored jewelry findings that I immediately added to my stash.


Cute fabrics!  Soft kawaii flannel and a nice sized fleece pirate!


Cute cute fruit and veggie fabrics that I can use in many projects including an I-Spy quilt.


Thank you so much for everything, Tygermane!

306  Solid Perfume Locket Tutorial in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by MissingWillow on: June 23, 2011 02:11:49 PM
Thisbirdsabsurd is my partner in the Make A Friend swap.  This is a three part swap whose first package must focus on the sender vs. the partner.  One of the items I found in my first package was something that she thinks smells good, a vial of satsuma fragrance.  I have never heard of satsuma before but agree with her, it smells fantastic!  I decided when I opened it that I would use it in some way to make her something for package number two.  Since we raise bees, we've got beeswax for crafting.  I decided to make her some solid perfume using the satsuma fragrance.  I searched online for a locket that had some sort of opening in the top so the scent would be able to escape and found this lovely filigree one.  The idea is that body warmth will release the scent and it opens if she wants to apply the scent directly to her skin.  



Here is the locket I selected.  It came in a set, so I have others that I can play with for Christmas gifts.  It will be fun to blend some scents!


There are just three ingredients in the perfume.  Equal amounts of beeswax and a carrier oil.  I used sweet almond oil, which I have on hand for soapmaking.  I used a teaspoon of each for this project.  In retrospect, it was too much (but now I have some satsuma perfume of my own)!  I started with about 25 drops of the fragrance oil, tested it, and ended up adding an additional 20 or so.    


A makeshift double boiler!  An old pan heating water and a small glass jar to melt the ingredients.  This didn't take long at all.  When it was melted and scented, I just poured it into the locket and left it alone to harden.  I checked on it after about an hour and it was solid.  


After that, it required some basic jewelery skills to add a few charms and put it on a chain.  I covered an altoid tin to send it in.  If you make one, please PM me, I wanna see!

Package #2 Received from thisbirdsabsurd


You're welcome a million, thisbirdsabsurd!  Speaking of... I received my second package from her as well, and holy crap!  I am seriously in love with her art dolls and, as sheepishly as a shepherdess could, asked if she'd mind sending me a something for me to follow so I can make my own.  I not only got a pattern but an entire DIY kit!  It included her hand drawn pattern on heavy paper, cute fabric, an embroidery hoop (Would you believe my first? I will NOT be afraid!), embroidery thread and needles, and coordinating ribbon.  I can't wait to get started, I think everyone in my family is getting an art doll for Christmas this year.  LOL!


Some charms to embellish her, I love these!  


This cutie is going to be my salt cellar.  I immediately dumped the contents of my old cracked salt cellar into this little piggy.  Isn't he awesome?


I should have used something for scale, but this hand painted box couldn't hold more than a cup of beans, if that.  It's painted with a tiny primitive scene that represents our homestead.  A weeping willow tree, farmhouse, sheep and working border collie.  I'm in awe of her painting skills.  So tiny and beautiful!


But wait, there's more!  Check out the adorable felted lamb inside.  It's got a little heart hanging from it's collar!  Such great needlefelting skills!  I told thisbirdsabsurd from the start that I want to be her when I grow up and this is a perfect example.  


Here's another. O.M.G.  Can you believe someone would make this and put it in a box?  I know I'd have a hard time doing it!  The best part is the fabric selections.  All animals and bees and a sample of the butterfly fabric I sent her in box #1.  Love love LOVE it!  


Here's the back, more awesomeness.


And inside are some recipe cards tucked in.  Maybe I'll make this a recipe book!  Whatever I decide to do with it, it will be treasured always.  Thank you so much, Jen.  You really are a talented, wonderful person!   Kiss

308  Harvesting Spring Honey in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: June 02, 2011 10:28:51 AM
We harvested the first of our Spring honey this week.  Our bees are doing very well in the little bee yard we've set up by our pond.  We've seen a bear in our back yard, thankfully it's never made it down to the hives! 



Here we are gathering up the honey supers to bring into our kitchen for processing.  A honey super is the shallow box where bees store honey in beeswax frames of drawn honeycomb.  We always leave one super per hive for the bees.  It's what they eat over the winter.  Anything above their super is ours.   Smiley



They store honey in drawn beeswax honeycomb and cap it with beeswax when it's full.  A super full of honey is very very heavy. 



We use a knife to remove the beeswax cap that keeps the honey stored.  The beeswax cappings get melted down.  I use it for crafting candles, soap and solid perfume.   



We have a small extractor, which is just fine for our operation.  It's basically a plastic tank that holds two uncapped frames which are spun via a handle crank.  Centrifugal force spins the honey from the frames into the bottom of the extractor.



From here, the honey is strained into a holding tank.  From there, it's ladled into jars.   If you look carefully, you'll see newspaper spread on our kitchen floor.  It's potentially a messy job.




The best comb gets set aside for comb honey.  Instead of uncapping it, we cut it into chunks to fit into a jar.  Here is some cut comb waiting for honey to be added to the jar.



The finished product, ready for the Farmer's Market!  We'll harvest again towards the end of the Summer.  Our sourwood trees are just starting to bloom so the next batch will be sourwood honey, a local delicacy.   Any questions?  Ask away!
