11  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / What size soap mold? on: February 27, 2012 08:32:55 AM
Okay, my husband is going to make me a rectangle soap mold. I haven't made soap in a while but I make it in a blender. What size mold should he make  so that when I pour the soap in it the soap will come to the top or near the top so the bars will look like bars when I cut them and not like little nuggets. Does that make sense? I want to be able to cut it into bars but I can't remember how much soap is made in a blender? 2lbs? I'm so lost.
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What am I doing wrong? on: February 07, 2012 05:30:38 PM
Hi everyone! I decided to teach myself to knit. I got a book at the library this week and practiced a little. I am wondering why it looks so bad. Especially around the edges, it just looks well..here is a picture. What am I doing wrong?
13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Any ideas for tea party 5 year old? on: February 01, 2012 05:58:09 AM
My daughter's birthday is in April and I want to start planning now so I can have everything done early that I can. She wants a tea party she says. There will probably only be 4 or 5 kids her age there. My 12 year old will be there and a couple older kids that are siblings. For the little ones I was thinking as a craft I could get each one a "paint your own tea set" kit. They run $8 to $10 each, but since there will only be a few kids that is doable. If I don't do that, I was thinking I could get some cheap hats and set up a table where (with help) they could decorate their own "fancy tea party" hats (with help) maybe flowers, feathers, etc. I will have something for the older kids to do too, just havent figured that part out yet. My other daughter is not and never has been a girly girl (her parties in the past have included dinosaur, pirate, farm, you get the idea) so I am kind of out of my element here. What kind of decorations do I need? Flowers in vases on the tables? What wall art? Table clothes I assume something girly and with lace? Maybe doilies? What food? What do I serve it on? One thing that comes to my mind is 3 tiered serving platters. Maybe I could look around at thrift stores for things. I would like to do a few games too. I was thinking of a bean bag toss where I could make felt tea bags (oversized) as the bags, and make a big tea cup to toss them in. I don't know how I could make it, maybe just a bucket with a cardboard decorated tea cup glued to the front. I was also thinking of a "pin the handle on the teapot" game. Anyway, if anyone has ANY ideas about ANYTHING please share. Smiley
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Gift for someone who crochets? on: January 23, 2012 05:46:58 PM
I'm not sure if I am posting this in the right place. Forgive me if I'm not. This might sound a little nutty but I am starting on getting ideas together for next Christmas. If I don't start now, I won't have everything done. Anyway, I don't know anything about crochet but my Step Mom crochets. I would like to make her something (I sew) but don't have a clue what. I was wondering if there is something I could make for organizing yarn or needles? Is there a really neat yarn that I could buy? Maybe hand dyed or spun...not sure if that is something that is wanted by people who crochet. Anyway, ANY ideas will be welcome. Thank you guys..oh and you rock! One day, I will figure out this crochet thing.
15  UNITED STATES / Tennessee / Craft or miniature stores in Pigeon Forge area?? on: January 06, 2012 06:40:27 AM
We are going to the Pigeon Forge area soon and while I have been a ton of times I don't know of any craft stores or places to find crafty things. Does anyone know of anywhere in the area where I might find some cool things? Miniature things for my little house would be my #1 thing to be excited about!
16  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Easter swap? on: January 05, 2012 07:57:56 AM
I'm still sort of new and just now working on my first organized swap, but I was just thinking it would be neat to do an Easter swap, or even Easter/Spring. Early enough for a send out a couple weeks before Easter maybe? I think it would be cool to have Easter things made for my kids that were different from the things I make. It could be things for our kids or ourselves. Maybe we could specify in the questionnaire if we want things for ourselves or the kiddos. Just brainstorming a little Smiley
17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felt food on: November 09, 2011 01:24:55 PM
I have started making a little felt food for my 4 year old daughter. I don't have any patterns, but everything I have done so far turned out okay. Okay enough for the 4 year old to enjoy, anyway. These were the first things I have made: pancakes with butter and syrup, bacon, eggs, then some chicken legs and carrots, and some chips. I have since made grilled steak, green beans, broccoli, doughnuts, sandwich with ham, cheese, lettuce, and tomato, and I think a few more things I can't remember right now. I am trying to make her a big set for Christmas and if I have the time, an apron, chef's hat, and maybe some laminated "menus" with pictures of the food. She loves to play restaurant.


18  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Faux brick backsplash on: November 08, 2011 07:42:33 PM
A few years ago, I decided I wanted a backsplash but couldn't afford a real one so I bought some paint and...waaa laaaa.. backsplash! Please excuse the old stove. I hated that thing!

19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My daughter's riding pants on: November 08, 2011 07:35:30 PM
I had the bright idea a few years ago to make some riding pants for my daughter. Had no pattern so I just kind of drew one onto newspaper and this was the result.


20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My paper mache necklaces on: October 27, 2011 09:00:00 AM
I have recently started using paper mache to make beads. These are my first attempts at any type of jewelry, and while I have used the paper mache strips for years, this is the first time I have made and used the pulp. Let me know what you think. It's a work in progress and I am working on some now that are turning out even better. Lots of ideas in my head. We will see how they work out  Grin

Again, I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong trying to get pictures on here..I am adding a link.
