That is why I don't sew, except for super-basic seams and whatnot. I have neither the time nor the patience for it. >.<

I do, however, admire that my swap partner does. Cheesy

44  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Can I use milk in melt-and-pour soap? on: January 22, 2011 04:55:01 PM
I am not, in any way, a "serious" soapmaker. The whole idea for this stemmed from the fact that a friend gave me some organic oatmeal-and-goat-milk soap, and it was the most FABULOUS soap I have ever used in my life. However, after I ran out, I couldn't quite justify paying $5-7 a bar at the local health food store. So I figured I would try to make my own.

I found a couple of different recipes for melt-and-pour soup - one involves melting an opaque base, a transparent base, mixing them together and adding oatmeal. The other is a cheater's way of making soap, by grating up a Dove beauty bar, melting it with a little water, and stirring oatmeal into it until it sets up again. I was wondering if there was any way to incorporate milk into either of these without completely throwing off the chemistry of the soap. I haven't the first clue about making soap, so any advice would be helpful. Cheesy
45  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Why buy it when I can make it? on: January 20, 2011 07:46:28 AM
So I've discovered a really bad habit about myself. The other day I was walking around our local Dillard's department store, and I noticed they had a whole rack of scarves and hats that were knit and crocheted out of super-chunky yarn. I kind of liked the look of them, so I checked the price tag - and they wanted $35 for one of these chunky scarves! It wasn't a particularly complicated stitch pattern (the crocheted ones looked like your basic sc scarf, and the knitted ones were just knit-purl-knit-purl), and I didn't see the point in spending $35 on it when I could just go to the LYS, buy a skein of chunky yarn for $5, and make my own.

Crocheted stuff (vests, hats, scarves, etc) have gotten really popular in the past couple of years, and I just can't justify spending that kind of money on it when I know it would be cheaper to buy my own yarn and make it (or something similar) myself. Anybody else do this, too? Or am I just a weirdo? Tongue

Play a different game? Tongue

I honestly hated Link to the Past. That thing kicked my butt, I think I got about a third of the way through the game and gave up on it.

Hmm . . . my large came out a bit larger than I originally intended it to be . . . must reconsider shipping. >.<

Anybody used the USPS flat-rate boxes before? Are they worth it? I'm just curious, wanted to double-check before I went out and bought one.
