I added a few items to my shop!  A long table runner, and 2 quote block signs.  I will be making a matching bunting banner in the same prints as the table runner.  Its a WIP.  And I can make more quote block signs, if there is more interest.

Thanks sheepBlue and kayrun!

The skull candles have been claimed! If people are interested I have another set of the skulls I may list. I was going to keep them, but I guess I shouldn't be lazy and make more, lol.

I would defitely snag some if you made more! They are so cool!!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dobby Doll on: October 04, 2015 08:20:25 PM
Hi there!  My partner, lancmaltby, in the Harry Potter swap loves Dobby.  So, I decided to try my hand at making one!  I used the same pattern I've been using for my dolls lately (which can be found here with a great tutorial by the pattern maker: http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2013/02/girl-boy-fabric-dolls-pattern-pieces-included.html ).  The only thing I added to change it was a pair of ears. 

I painted on his face with fabric paint and brushes, so that it would be durable in case he needed to be washed. 

Thanks for looking!
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Lotion Bars! on: October 04, 2015 08:11:55 PM
Hi there!  I made up some lotion bars for my shop in the "Shop the Swap" swap.  I first made some earlier this year as favors for my sister's bridal shower. They were wonderful, even my daughter, baby bean loves them!  Actually, she is downright obsessed.  Lol!  I used Wellness Mama's recipe for these, which can be found on her blog here: http://wellnessmama.com/4770/lotion-bars/   Its an awesome blog with some really great tutorials for natural living.  These are super easy and quick to make!  I bought a couple of molds from Hobby Lobby.  Simply, you boil water, pour equal parts of coconut oil, cocoa butter (or shea or mango butter), and beeswax into a big mason jar and still continuously until melted together.  After you remove it from the heat, you can mix in some essential oils, if you want.  The are great unscented, though.  I added some lavender essential oil to some of mine. Then you let them cool completely in their molds, and then pop them out!  They make great gifts!

Thank for looking!
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded Wrap Bracelets on: October 04, 2015 08:01:24 PM
Its been a long while since I've made some wrap bracelets.  I dusted off my loom and made a couple of a beauties for a couple of different swaps.

For the Harry Potter swap, I made one with Slytherin colors.  It reminds me of snake skin.

And this other one is up for grabs in my shop in the "Shop the Swap" swap.  ^_^  Love the fall colors on this one!

Both were made with glass beads and plastic buttons at the end.

Thanks for looking!

Hi everyone!  I received an awesome package from my swap partner, lancmaltby, this weekend.  Check out the amazingness!

First up, some really cool notecards made from pictures she took at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

This beautiful tote bag with Snape's patronus.  Love the look of this so much!  Snape's patronus is just my favorite!

Check out this covered notebook!!!  It is so AWESOME!!!  Inside the cover it says "Property of the Half Blood Prince" which is just too cool!  And a writing quill, which baby bean has been very excited about since it came. 

An amazing owl for baby bean!  Its so big!  So cool!  She loves him and ran off to play with him immediately.

And these seriously cool painted shoes!  They have such tiny detail and are just so so wonderful!!!

Thank you for the amazing swap!!

I made some bath bombs for Christmas last year and I used one recently and it was wonderful. Super moisturizing, too. Maybe I'll make some up for this swap. I also made some sugar scrubs that my sister loves and wants more of, so maybe I will make some of that, too. Smiley Whatever I don't sell I will use for Christmas presents this year. I'm also going to be working on some cool wood block signs this week.

I'm working on some lotion bars for my shop right now.  Lotion bars are an emotionally filled subject in my house, since baby bean is OBSESSED with them!  She just didn't understand that they were cooling and weren't ready yet and had a meltdown in the kitchen.  She just wanted that darn lotion on her feet right freakin' now!  So, toddler approved lotion bars are coming soon! (Though for supervised toddler use, only, since mine also things they are delicious)

I might be making a doll or two for my shop, too.  I made a bracelet for my shop last night, and I have some baby/toddler headbands that I will be adding too.

I am also going to be making some christmas tags.  Gonna put my cricut to work today.  ^_^

What else would people like to see from me?

oh yes, lotion bars for me

I would be interested in bath bombs, should anyone be considering making any...and bath melts, really moisturising ones
