391  B&B Challenge 1~Unusual Ingredient~Congrats to Nymeria! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by MareMare on: January 26, 2009 11:52:28 PM
You voted, and the theme for this year's first challenge is~Unusual Ingredient!

Create a new product--soap, make-up, lotion, bath salts, sugar scrub, whatever you want, and do it with a twist! Your "unusual ingredient" needs to be....um, unusual! It doesn't have to be crazy unusual, but not something used everyday. It could potentially be an obscure item from a soap supplier, such as MSM powder or a really rare type of butter, or it could just be something you think would work well to add! You should have some reason for adding the item, just don't go throwing stuff around! Maybe something kinda odd that you think would make a great color in your soap, or something from your kitchen pantry that you think might impart ____ characteristic.

This challenge will last for 3 weeks, and close at 10 pm Pacific time on Feb 18. You may post your challenge entry as soon as the challenge folder goes up (we don't have one as of yet). I will link to it here when we get it! To enter, start a new topic in this folder.

The rules:

1. Post your entry, including pictures and an explanation of why you used the unusual ingredient you chose, and if it worked out the way you wanted!

2. Post before Feb 18, 10 pm Pacific time

3. There are no restrictions on who may enter, but each person may only enter once.

4. If you are using an existing recipe you did not create, please alter it at least 25%, and you must credit the source!

The Prize:

20 New Divided Containers~ I love these!



Example of what I have used these for in the past: a "lip kit" with a lip scrub, lip plumper, ultra balm, and 2 shades of gloss.



There will be a second prize if at least 10 people (legitamately) enter! More details to come  Grin

Here's what I sent ColoradoDeb! Such awesome fabrics to work with!

Modified "Pleatness" bag, made it taller so it wasn't so boxy, I think it shows off the fabrics nicely.

393  Featured Projects--Quarter 4 2008 in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by MareMare on: January 14, 2009 10:59:58 PM
Here are the Featured Projects for Quarter 4 of 2008. I plan to (try) to do Featured Projects Quarterly  Grin  All of these projects were posted in October, November, or December of 2008. Many of these were popular projects that have already been “rocked” or commented on quite a bit, and others might not have gotten quite as much attention the first time around. I did not “double dip” any projects that were already featured in Craftster Best of 2008 so we could look at a wider variety of projects!  Click on the pic for the full thread.



We all love Melt and Pour that looks like something else…especially when it looks like gemstones!

We love Cold Process soap that looks like something else too!  Mmm, ice cream!

LOL just waiting for more theme suggestions! Also have a fear that nobody will vote or enter lol.

Ok, I was thinking of this for a prize, will get a better pic later, I just stole this one from a sweat shoppe swap I did a while back. This is really fun packaging, is a small flat container with five sections. You can never have enough fun packaging, right??  Could be used for lip balm or solid perfume or other things I'm sure. Let me know if it isn't a good prize, I was thinking maybe 15 or 20 of them? (uh, lip balm not included). The one pictured was a "lip kit" that had a lip scrub, mega lip balm, lip plumper, and I think 2 kinds of lip gloss. So you can do all kinds of stuff with it.

I have to apologize to my awesome partner ThatsWhatSheSaid for taking so long to post pics! I've been waiting to get batteries for my camera, but that's not going to happen for awhile, so at least here are some pics from my phone!

An awesome shadow box/artwork of a flower! And some ribbon wrapped bracelets!



More supercool wall art, I love the birdie and there is a page of french behind it!



And! The world's best scarf! I love it, it had to take about a hundred years to knit! My fave color!

Thanks so much hon, everything is awesome. If you have better pics please post!

396  Re: Questions About Hairstyles! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by MareMare on: December 15, 2008 04:17:31 PM
Does anyone have any idea what I can do about my poor hair?
A month ago I got it highlighted at the hairdressers. It was black and it went brown with goldy bits. It was nice and everyone said it suited me, but I didn't like it.
I coped with it for a month though, and a few days ago I box-dyed it a colour that I thought was brown with a reddish tint, but it actually came out dark red with light red bits (I assume where the lightest blonde was before).
It's bearable, but it's just not me. I was thinking about putting a semi-permanent box of light/medium brown on it, does anyone think that'll work? My natural colour is a dark/medium brown and I really don't want it to go black again.

This is the blonde-ish: [img]http://c3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/40/m_7ff21dec0e4842b0ac90797a8893cdbe.jpg

This is the red: [img]http://c2.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/59/l_db31bbda00e04a88abf2e19d05672171.jpg
I know they're not the best photos...

Aw I think the red is really pretty...but it's easy to get sick of red too!  Post new pics please when you end up deciding on something!   Grin

Nymeria - Thanks for the encouragement!

MareMare - Yes, I think I just cooked it too long.  My second batch came out MUCH nicer!

[img width=500 height=374]http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/DSCN2765.JPG

I used black tea FO and swirled tea grounds(?) into it.  It smells lovely and is a lot smoother than the first try.

Looks awesome! I've never smelled black tea fo, is it kind of mellow?

Yay, here are mine! It took forever to get them off the camera, stupid computer! ColoradoDeb made me two awesome bags!

This bigger bag, with an awesome cell phone pocket on the side that is elasticized so my phone won't fall out, pockets and a zippered pocket inside, and she left the strap loose so I can sew it the exact length I want! So fabulous! 





And the second back is also so cute, sweet handles and I love how she worked the various fabrics into it.





And a felt flower, it is great!




Thanks so much!

I'm sorry, this one came out a little small so I put a border on it. It is too big, but I figured you can trim the border down as much as you need when you put it together.

I just made one of these, it was on someone's birthday wishlist swap! I didn't really follow the tutorial because it is just easier for me to make it up as I go, but thank you so much for the idea and the dimensions! It is really cute, I will post pics after my partner receives.

Here's what I made!
