421  Re: Make a Purse With This Stuff Gallery in The Swap Gallery by MareMare on: December 08, 2008 11:48:10 PM
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!

424  Re: Lap Quilts For All Swap- Round 4! signups end tomorrow! in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by MareMare on: November 16, 2008 05:55:05 PM
I got my fabrics! I am so excited, my sil helped me pick them out.


These are the 5 I just bought tonight.





The dark brown is really pretty, it has a brown on brown pattern, can't really see it here.

And I recently just did a project with greens and browns, and this is what I have from that, I love the top one, may use it for this too, but I have less than a yard of it.

425  You Put the Lime in the Coconut...plus shampoo bars and more in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by MareMare on: October 19, 2008 12:16:47 AM


I made 5 batches of soap on thursday, and I seemed to biff them up a little bit!





I did a batch of coconut lime verbena with coconut milk for half the water. It turned out really oddly--I have pockets of oil in it!  It's not lye, it's definitely oil. I've never had that problem before, but I'm thinking it was just too superfatted with the coconut milk in it. I think I did a 5% lye discount, and then all the extra fat in the coconut milk maybe? Anybody have any other ideas? It is only along the top of the bars, and the holes are pretty big in some of them. I may end up trimming the tops on the bad ones so that the bars are small and square! I actually had to drain the oil holes and wipe all the bars down before I put them on paper towels on the curing rack.





A batch that turned out well, so far~ I finally did a shampoo bar that I have been wanting to do for a while. I did coconut oil, a little bit of olive, hemp, jojoba and walnut. I also added some liquid silk to this batch, I love the texture of soaps that I add liquid silk to! It has rosemary EO in it.



I did a batch with a fragrance called berry kisses. I can't remember the scent description, but it is a very sweet scent. I added some rose clay to the whole batch and then swirled in a little bit of purple pigment in.



Another batch that I messed up on a little~I was making peppermint and trying to swirl  red and white like candy canes or peppermint candy, and I did a lovely in the mold swirl, I usually swirl in the pot. Then I realized I hadn't added the fragrance! I had already mixed up peppermint essential oil with a touch of non-discoloring vanilla to tone down the fragrance and I forgot it. I had already made a batch of unscented so I didn't want another one, so I had to dump it back in the pot to add the fragrance and I ruined my lovely swirl!

I got my fabulous package from Lunanne!

She made me a couple things to show my love/nerdiness for nintendo, an awesome pixelated Link shirt and a beaded bracelet that looks like an NES controller! I just realized I forgot to take a pic of the bracelet so will have to add that later.



And she made me another shirt that I've been wanting for a long time. It says "Made in the 80's" I love the colors!



I also got a fabulous cross stitched piece with my 3 nephews' names on it! It is soooo cute!



AND~ (I am so spoiled!) a really cute bag in brown and pink, some of my fave colors! I love it, I think it's going to become my new work bag!



And she was really sweet and sent little pencil cases for the boys with pencils and stickers inside! I bet Aidan is going to put his "moneys" in it. He had a roll of pennies last week and was telling me he was going to buy "lots and lots of candies!"   Cheesy



Thank you so much Lunanne, I love it all! I should get your stuff out soon, just need to wait for the soap I just made to cure a little!

I am so behind on posting pics! I am so sorry!

I got a wonderful skirt off of my wists from farmgirljane! The fabric is great, I love black and white and it is lovely and light and flowy!



Sansa sent me project bags and a quilt pattern! I love the fabrics she chose, there is an Egyptian one and a Geisha one, which are some of my fave themes. Now my in progress projects can be organized and not get lost when I stuff them in plastic bags!  Grin



The other side of the geisha one










And I received 2 great packages yesterday!

From sullengal I got an awesome pincatcher! I love the colors and I needed a pincushion so badly! I have already used it as you can see.





And I got some great crocheted squares for my craftster afghan from zombiecazz. I'm not sure which one is my fave, I like the ones with gray but the white ones are really great patterns too!





Thank you so much everyone!

Here are action pics of my nephews and the felt food atsuko made!

Excited about the motorcycle Lana sent him


Aidan and Dane playing with the food


Tristan got one lonely donut to play with (you can see his taggie cookie monster blanket that was made for him in the OWS...it's his favorite!)


Dane made a birthday cake for grandma out of pancakes, a donut, a sausage, and an orange and sang happy birthday to her. It was not her birthday.


Attacking dad with the food...it turned into a food fight!


Thanks atsuko! They had so much fun, when we got home from the movies Dane wanted some food...I thought he was nuts because he just had popcorn and candy, but he wanted the play food!

I received the best package from beckashell today! Thank you so much, I love everything!

It was super creative and had a story~

A note from Treeger telling me some Friends had moved out of apartments 19 and 20 and wanted me to have some things~



And everything was wrapped with notes from the Friend that sent it to me!

From Rachel, a Central Perk coffee mug!~



From Phoebe (I think) a really cool jar, decorated, with Friends quotes to cheer me up and lots and lots of orgami stars! They are so cute, I can't imagine how long it took to make these!~



From Joey, Some Joey Love in the form of cross stitch!~



From Phoebe, a book of her song lyrics! I wanted to take a pic of every page, they are all amazing!~









From Monica, some coasters that Chandler gave her that she didn't like! I love Mario!~



From Chandler, some recipe cards of favorite Friends recipes including the Joey Special (2 pizzas!) and Phoebe's grandma's cookies! My fave are Peanut butter fingers!~





Friends shopping lists and To Do lists!



and from Treeger, a pic of the Friends building with a decorated mat~
