These are the soaps I made in December and the two batches I made yesterday (the light lavendar on the left and the pink in the center). I'm just learning soap-making so am still doing melt & pour stuff, but am experimenting with molding, colors, fragrances, and inclusions. Hope to work from scratch as my techniques improve.

42  Re: Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 33 (signup by Jan 20, Send by Feb 17) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by kbrison on: January 03, 2014 05:34:37 PM
These are the washcloths and soap saver bags (plus a bar of m&p soap) I'm offering.The colors are off in this photo. Bottom row: dark green, deep yellow, purple. Top row is pretty accurate: lime green, blue, beige, but pink is even more intense than it appears.

And here are the soaps you'll be able to choose from. The Celtic knot design bars are about 2" x 3", the square and circle bars are slightly smaller but thicker. Again the colors are somewhat faded out. I've listed the color/fragrance. Top photo, starting from left: light lavendar-colored/plumeria, white speckled/floral scent with apricot pits(exfolliant), light green/lime.

Bottom photo: pink/vanilla-herbal, very light lavendar/lavendar with lavender flower buds, orange/orange.

I was active in the Red Hat Society several years ago, and bought quite a bit of RHS fabric during that time. I'm no longer involved with the group so I've been donating my stuff to various friends who are active Red Hatters. These pieces of cotton fabric are heading to a Craftster friend in Texas who quilts.

I'm also sending her some iron-on decals and an applique patch as well as a stamp that I hope she'll be able to use. Glad to give them to her, but even happier for myself to de-stash them.

I just have to share what I did with the awesome Granny Trees.  I crocheted a big string to make them into a bunting! 


I almost did that for you but wasn't sure since you had asked for ornaments. Really like the result!

Ice, snow, sleet, school closings, church service cancellations, event postponements, dangerous road conditions, and power outages; that's been our status since Wednesday. Then into all that dreariness comes a new baby girl in the extended family and opening day for the Secret Santa Swap. Life is so, so good!

First, the tempting packages. Love the paper and Ho Ho Ho ribbon. Think they're going into my cardmaking/papercrafting supplies because they're much too cute to toss.

My Secret Santa was courtneykilledit aka Batman.  Cheesy Even though we both crochet, she made me something that I love but would never make for myself. I love receiving amigurumis, but don't like to make them. That's why every one I have was made by someone else on Craftster.  Grin I also collect kangaroos, so this one is totally perfect! He even came decked out in removable Santa togs, so he's going to be part of my holiday decorations this month. Then I'm going to pack the beard and hat away and let him be my desk buddy for the rest of the year. Now to come up with a fitting name for him. Think he deserves a name a little more refined than "Cutie"! He also came with two snowflake ornaments, but you can't see one of them because it's tucked into his pouch.

My hands are always cold and especially so this week with our current weather conditions, so the fingerless gloves I received are perfect for doing things around the house! Courtney used a very soft and shiny yarn that's unfamiliar to me, so I don't know what it's called, but I can say that it's very pretty and I love the tab and button fashion detail.

Thanks so much, courtneykilledit!

Challenge entry - something warm
Finally finished a baby afghan for my newest great-great niece (due Dec.21). I had to put it on hold for several weeks while I tracked down enough of the right yarn to complete it. It's so, so soft (Bernat Baby Boucle) that I just want to snuggle with it.

Challenge entry - WIP
A fabric basket to hold clippies, headbands, and other small items for great-great niece. I started this last year for another great-great niece but got sidetracked, so I'm glad to have this done and leaving my house!

49  Re: Paper and Ephemera Swap Round 10 Gallery - Send-out Nov. 18 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by kbrison on: November 14, 2013 11:10:00 PM
Have been up to my eyeballs with 'must finish' type projects since I received from Acadian Driftwood, but want to get photos posted before I get swamped again. Grin Warning: Pic heavy!!! First up are foreign stamps (Russian and Polish?), ribbons, Asian prints, a brass stencil, and miscellaneous items.

Then seaweed, complete with their scientific nomenclature that Acadian prepared for a college course and a piece of hand-crafted paper. Love the seaweed!!

Next various wildlife photos. I especially like the pandas and the baby penguins.

More wildlife photos, origami papers, and a page from a Beatrix Potter book.

Amazing vintage book pages from Shakespeare, plus ones in French, Spanish, Latin, and what I suspect is German. I have so many ideas for these!

Then some shots of the envelope. My favorite drawings from the front of the mailer.

More great drawings. Like the way Acadian incorporated my love of quilting by using a stippling design around the star.
I've loved doing this swap and having such a talented partner. Thanks, Acadian Driftwood!

Challenge #2
I made some pillowcases for Christmas gifts. The Asian inspired ones are for DD#2 to go with the kimono quilt I'm still working on for her and my sil. The horses are for one of my great-nieces who is horse crazy.

The fingerless mitts are for my eldest niece.
