Man I kinda hate looking through this gallery and seeing all the cool stuff I missed out on!

Here are the soaps atsuko claimed for her sister, she wanted me to wrap them pretty. I used ribbon and mulberry paper and scrapbooking paper. Also included a lip balm for her and for pinkandinky for participating in my sale!  Wink

I got a very cool learn to knit kit from kitty1256! She started a fabulous basketweave scarf for me in my fave color! And sent along the coolest extras!  I swear she stalked me about stuff that there is no way she could have found out from craftster...like she was in my head! Warning: it's spooky!

Scarf, I adore the pattern, hopefully I will be able to finish it!



Grow-a-pirate! Ok, maybe somewhere I have mentioned that my nephews LOVE pirates! We're gonna grow this guy on saturday, the boys will be so excited!



Candy flavored lip glosses (I love tootsie pops), creme savers hard candies (seriously, the only hard candy I like, and never tried these flavors, but are delish, yum strawberry cheesecake!), and passionfruit body butter.(Seriously, I have never said that passionfruit is my fave smell/flavor...have I?)



AND most awesomely, these completely adorable lip balm and lip gloss shaped and flavored like Vanilla Pepsi. Not only are they super cute, but my new boyfriend's fave drink is vanilla pepsi (well, vanilla coke, but that's pretty darn close!) Hehehe!



Thanks kitty1256! You're a super awesomes stalker/maybe psychic!   Grin

445  Aran Isles dishcloth....wall hanging? in Crochet: Completed Projects by MareMare on: March 24, 2008 09:33:58 PM
My friend Sheryle at work is always way way impressed with anything I crochet (not that it's amazing, she just doesn't crochet and thinks it's neat). Anyhow I decided to make her a dishcloth 'cause it's nice when someone actually appreciates when you make something! I basically used the pattern for the aran isles muffler from Donna Kooler's Encylclopedia of Crochet. I just did 2 repeats and then bordered it in two rows of single crochet. Sheryle is so cute, she said she can't wash dishes with it, she's going to frame it and hang it on her wall lol! I told her to just use it, and since it's white cotton she could bleach it but she refused!

I'm also making this as an actual scarf for my mom in red, it is about a foot and a half long but I haven't worked on it in a while!

450  Even more pics! ~7 batches of soap = I'm tired! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by MareMare on: March 05, 2008 11:47:31 PM
I hadn't made any soap in quite a while, and I had a few issues since apparently I'm out of a few ingredients. I had to run out and get more olive and castor, then after I got home realized I was low on coconut too! I re-formulated a couple recipes and made do though!

I'm now tired but content that I got a lot done! Here are some kind of ugly in-the-mold pics, will post more when I cut. 2 of the batches were naughty and I had to put them outside for a couple hours on the front porch, they just now were allowed back in the house. They started superheating and were doing a kinda cracking in the middle thing that I wasn't happy with, but outside cooled them off nicely. Sorry for the reflection off the saran wrap!



Clockwise from top right:

1.) Oats n Honey. Scented lightly with Oats and Honey FO, ground oats and honey. Uncolored, but is already a rich amber color from the honey.

2.) Almond Joy. Scented with coconut and almond FO's, colored with a swirl of cocoa powder, and contains 15% cocoa butter.

3.) Black Raspberry Vanilla.  BRV FO (dead-on B&BW dupe), cranberry seeds for visual interest and slight exfoliation, swirled with ultramarine pink pigment.

4.) Pink Grapefruit Confetti Soap (in the vertical mold). Pink grapefruit fragrance, neon red pigment (used sparingly to get pink), and a lb of dried shreds beveled from other soaps in various colors and fragrances (fruit and floral fragranced). BTW, I do not recommend doing a confetti soap in a vertical mold. What was I thinking? It was so hard to get in there, I made a massive mess(that's why it's sitting in a container, I didn't really want raw soap dripping down the sides onto the counter or carpet)!

5.) Dragon's Blood. Dragon's blood FO with a little dark patchouli EO thrown in. Uncolored, but since the FO discolors to a super dark brown/sometimes black (depending on how strongly you fragrance it) I do a reverse swirl, and hold back 1/3 of the batch and add the fragrance to the rest, then swirl in the portion that is plain. That way I get a bit of a white swirl instead of a totally dark soap.

6.) Spring Rain confetti soap. Spring rain fragrance, jojoba beads in pink, blue and green, and lots of soap shreds in various colors (various fruit and floral fragrances)

7.) My Shea Luxury soap (30% shea butter!), this time I added some liquid silk (Ladybug Soapworks' post kinda reminded me I'd never used the silk I bought a while ago!) It's scented with Lavender Provence EO, Bulgarian Lavender EO, and Lavender Fleur FO (smells like sweet tarts!) uncolored

The "overflow" bars


Cut bars~

Almond Joy and Shea Luxury








Dragon's Blood--the outside has already discolored, but the newly cut part is still white...will take more pics as it darkens



Dragon's Blood and Spring Rain



Spring Rain Confetti--I LOVE how this turned out, my new favorite bar! And it smells sooooo good!





Black Raspberry Vanilla



Pink Grapefruit Confetti~this one turned out cool too, I love the shreds of blue!




Oats n Honey~somehow I think I got a partial gel on this one...it's a puzzler, in a honey soap???



Putting the babies to bed in their curing rack!



The bottom row is the dragon's blood...that's how much it's already discolored in 2 days (since cutting)
