10261  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: FRIENDS TV Show Swap (Sign-ups 8/2-8/13; Sendouts 9/20) on: August 12, 2008 11:31:12 PM
I hope that i'm able to craft things worthy of this swap...
I agree. I mean, i can do lots of crafty things, but i'm not excellent at any of them. And while i'm constantly remembering lines and episodes i loved....I think i need to start thinking of things i can make!

i guess I'll just have to wait till i get my partner to see what she likes!

I am an uber friends fan..that being said transferring my craftiness to friends stuff is getting me stumped..I hope I can unstump myself in time..


See, I kinda think the opposite, that this is going to be hard to narrow down to just 8 pts worth of things because of all the possibilities! First of all, there are so many things you can do with quotes (and we all know how many quotes there are to choose from!) All kinds of paper crafts,  cross stitch/embroidery, t-shirts, jewelry, and on and on. Then there are reproductions of people, items, etc from the show, from dolls to pillows to crazy butt kinda decorative set stuff, to completely ridiculous reproductions. Like, a polymer clay meat and peas trifle magnet or a cup cozy that is wearing all of Chandler's clothes (that is so not the opposite of hiding your underwear!) Also there is a lot to do with images from the show, decorating picture frames, more paper crafts...Yay!  I just remembered I have a magazine that came out after the show ended that is all about Friends...I was saving it as a collector's thing, but I just may have to cut it up!

~And in an Organizing Note~

Sign-ups end Wednesday night and I am on Pacific time, so lets say 9 pm. I probably won't get partners out until late evening, early morning (thurs) since I am a night owl. If you're pondering signing up, please do so! And especially if you're Canadian  Grin

A really great acne wash is to add bentonite clay (I imagine the charcoal is similar), lavender EO, and Tea Tree EO to your soap (if you're making it) or a nice unscented, basic face wash. If I recall correctly chamomile EO is fairly expensive, but possibly you could make a tea with it or perhaps there is a chamomile absolute.

I wasn't terribly sure if the product you bought is a wash or a lotion type thing you leave on, but those same basic skin friendly/skin clearning eo's can be added to lotions or masks too. Let me know if you want an exact recipe for soap or lotions or masks.

Lately I haven't watched much Friends, I'm always watching something on DVD though, and finished Scrubs, and then watched Buffy and just started Project Runway season 1 from netflix...but I need to watch some Friends to get some more project ideas! But to answer Kimberly_Star's question, in a week where I'm watching Friends actively, probably 3-4 a day. Sick, huh? That's like a season a week.

Ok, did anybody else like the spinoff Joey? While admitting it was kind of a terrible show, I still loved it. I only have season 1 though, I don't think they ever released season 2...or did they even film an entire season 2?  Ok, I had to go look it up, and according to IMDB there were 22 episodes for season 2, but when you go to "dvd details" they only show info for season 1.

missgabbielynn~I love the excitement! Isn't it fun to do a swap with people who love something you do too?

bigfatroses~maybe if you know one of your swaps was received you could pm the organizer for feedback and let her know you're waiting to get into another swap? I never mind doing that when I'm organizing.

I woke up last night thinking about Phoebe's dollhouse, with the ghost and the aromatherapy room!

FYI guys~I'm having some arthritis problems right now, so not getting online a lot, but I am trying to get you added to the swap as quickly as I can after I get the questionaires! So if I don't PM back super quickly, I will be on with 24-48 hrs.

I didn't make it to the LYS today, think I'm going to have to wait until friday (payday). I'm gonna go raid my stash and see what I have that would work for various categories until then. I have like 2 pages of lists of "possibles"

Those are so pretty! I have heard it before but still don't really know what bath jelly is/does. Is it foaming bubble bath?

My brother has tasted my concoctions a time or two (whipped shea butter does look an awful lot like cake frosting). Now he pointedly asks if it's food or soap before tasting anything I've made in the kitchen!
10269  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Scenting soap/lotion question on: August 06, 2008 12:56:45 AM
And another thing I forgot, lots of companies will give you a sniffie if you want to try some of their fo's. Usually it's just a q tip or a piece of cotton with the oil on it so you can check out the smell. It's not as good as getting an ounce and seeing how it works in your formulations, but it is cheaper! Some will just send you one for free, and some will send one if you send them a self addressed stamped envelops. And I think the smaller companies are better about doing this than the larger ones too.

You can definitely add your honey at trace, I heat mine up slightly so it combines well. I think I add about 2/3 cup to a fairly large batch (24 bars). Also keep in mind that it will super heat your soap, so don't insulate that batch, and if you have individual bar molds instead of a log mold that is good to do.

Superfatting is putting extra oils in at trace, but some people use that word interchangably with lye discount (I do myself if I'm not paying attention, but I mean lye discount). Mullerslanefarm posted an excellent explanation. The reason it's hard to understand what other people mean when they say superfatting, since many people do want that particular oil to be the "extra" in the recipe, but I think the chemistry is so complicated there's no way to know which extra fats you have in there.

I would maybe add olive or sunflower or another liquid oil to your recipe, just because you have a lot of solid oils there, and you don't want to have to use a ton of avocado 'cause it's so spendy. I usually try to keep my hard:liquid oils close to 50:50 (or 40:60, 60:40), Just my two cents though! Let us know how it turns out, the EO blend sounds yummy!
