I have never made body products, but always wanted an excuse to try!  I also would love to make poofs, washies, masks, candles, tons of good stuff.

I need a slot open, but should have one soon so I will sign up towards the end of sign ups.

my mom has done all of them and when she gets a spot will do this one too..She has received and sent some amazing things. She talked me into this one as she is running out of good stuff and hates to get any bath stuff that is now not made by a crafter...I know I am a bath and body girl but love her stuff she tells me if I want it I can make it or swap for it so I will do both!

I am waiting for my current swap partner to receive, and then get feedback, but then I think I might be in. I don't know how to make soaps and such, but I could make all sorts of other things I think and then maybe buy some handmade soaps. Or maybe figure out some bath soaks as those migght not require as many ingredients/things I don't have. :-P

I could make wash cloths, slippers, cute towels, bath pillow (maybe), oh, all sorts of things!

So I just completed another swap and was shopping around for my next one.  And I spy this one.   Hmmmm.....looks intriging.  Very intriging.  I'd LOVE to get some soaps and other smelly goodies.  But I don't have anything like that to swap in return....

Color me a blue shade of sad.... :'(

But then I figure I'll go search the old galleries and see if I can just maybe get any inspirations.  SCORE!  Yes, I do believe that I could come up with a couple of spa like items to swap with! 

Color me a bright shade of happy!   :D

I'd probably be best partnered with someone who already has lots of soaps and smelly goodies but wants other luxury items.  Like sweets and treats, sewed things and crocheted stuff. 

Will be completing the application shortly!

I'm SO looking forward to this swap

I'm a full time carer for my epileptic husband now and, although I'm qualified in Aromatherapy Massage, Indian Head Massage, Reflexology and Reiki, I hardly ever spend time pampering myself!!

This swap is an ideal excuse to do so ....and make some yummy things for my partner :)

I'm thinking about joining, but have not tried my hand at soap-making
yet, so I hope it's ok to knit up some goodies instead?
Would that please a partner?  (along with some purchased
extras, ya know~)

There are all kinds of knitted goodies that you can knit kayrun! There are shower puffs, bath mitts and wash cloths, and don't forget for post soak warm socks or slippers. :)

Check out this link http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/bath.php

There are also lots of easy spa goodies beyond soap (which intimidates the heck out of me for some reason!) like bath salts, bath bombs and body scrubs that you can make. There's a link on the top of either page 1 or 2 that has links to some recipes and whatnot.

Hey I do not make soap either...but i am taking this as a chance to learn a new thing.....okay so can someone tell me a short version of the difference between pour soaps and cold press...which is better.     am very happy about this swap...


Title: Re: Bath/Spa swap round 3 SU Nov 29-Dec 15 send out FEB 11
Post by: craftybeachgirl on December 09, 2009 07:35:40 PM
cold press is a processed soap very awesome...Pour soap you can go to Michaels and buy a block and cut it up melt it, add stuff to it and them pour in a mold let sit and there you go...I think that is about it...I am a Cold processed girl myself but will use M&P also...

  Really the pros are in the soap section on the community..take a look..Both can be lots of fun!

You dont have to make soap..There is a Huge ray of things that can fall into this swap...I know there are several that love hommage bath scrubbies, face cloths. there is a ton of items for this swap it is a Bath/Spa swap...

This sounds like fun! I'm someone who would have soap (cold process, 12 years tried and true recipe), cuticle cream, bath salts, massage oil (maybe more) to send and would love knitted things in return--- especially socks/slippers, exfoliating mittens/scrubbies, etc.

... I've got to make sure I don't over commit myself, but I hope I'm able to join!

This is a tricky thing to so
Dry salts can be packaged in ziplock bags in side of cloth bags or inside of plastic jars, that screw or rubber seal. Oils are very tricky, they should be tested to see if the leak by being placed up side down in side of a plastic bag. Even store bought sealed ones can have accidents. I would still ship them in a double lock ziplock bag but I am paranoid (but that is ok as long as you keep your "noids" in "pairs" they are ok.)

I know a lot of people who ship salt/sugar scrubs they  emulsified it so that it doesn't run all over the place while shipping. So that could be an option....

Strawberryh - yes ziplocks are awesome and have been a life save many a time

I'm not looking until I know exactly what my partner likes. Although it hasn't stopped me at looking at soap molds and things I want to buy in the future to use. :)

GAH, I had all the partners done and ready to transfer to my docs and to send partners and OMG my freaking puter crashed and I have no clue who was to what with who..I must redo. It will be really really late before I can redo this I knwo some but cant remember off the top who was to who..What a day!! It is 35 here I am freezing it was in the high 70s a few days ago and will not go back to the 60s for a week or so..I went with mom to buy my lil girl a bike from santa that we had ordered and it was rusted when it got in..REALLY, Not a good day! I am sick and sleepy and just have a cracked headach and needed to come on and send all partner info and then the ol crash down on my puter. I am on my moms laptop now but will try to get this all worked out again soon.
 I am shocked how easy but hard this swap was to partner with the allergies and smoke and no out of area shipping..I just have to go back now and redo...GAH I am so so sorry ladies but paitents will have to be this eve...It is now 1 am my time and I have a baby that will wake me in about 5 hours so I can mess to much longer...

 WEll, Start checking inboxes...I am starting to send right now...

  With an ODD number we will have 3 that are in a round robin A sends to B sends to c sends to A....

  This was a fun group I really hope for GREAT communication in the thread You are REQUIRED to check in at least weekly with the thread and partner, You need to please get to know your partners WANTS and LIKES before you start. I know some are partnerend with people that make different things and some the same sort of things but really get to looking and chatting with partner before getting started so this is a great swap for all and we all stay relaxed! Mmmmm relaxed...Mmmmmm


As for the bike...My Mom had a FIT..she got a bike off the floor for the same price and it is much nicer and so cute Barbie LOL..I am not to happy with Walmart or any bigbox store ever but to try to pass some crap off WOW..How dare they!!

Off to start a GREAT AND RELAXING SWAP...Please start early so not to wait until the last min and stress and be late..Ahhh relax and craft..cant wait!!

Whew, looks like it's going to be a challenge, not much on my partner's list is something I've made before! I have been making soap and bath products for 10 years though, I know a lot about natural decadent and fun ingredients (also have a lot on hand) and I'm sure I can make her very happy. :)

...I've been wanting to make my own sugar scrubs for years (I have everything I need for it), so this might be the perfect excuse!  ;)

This will be fun, and I'm really glad that we have so much crafting time!

I'm curious, can we send a couple small purchased things, or does it need to be 100% crafted?

No worries...She has otehr things then Vanilla! You just have to talk to her about it. You will have to communicate with each other. IT is not just a bath swap remember It is about bath/spa..You really can send so many different things that dont involve making soap and that sort of thing. You can buy a lovly something in her fave scents and make her some really awesome things to go along with that. go look at the other galleries, google spa and bath really you will be shocked at just what can be done without worried about vanilla..I have faith in you and your craftyness...If you get stuck PM me OR even my mom is a HUGE help in this sort of swap...Babalina58..

I hope I hear from her soon so I can start spoiling her. I have a lot of ideas in my head. I am jumping the gun. Poor girl is probably busy with Christmas.

so i made my super awesome list of things to go and get from the store and i was all excited... but then my husband thought it would be an awesome idea to drive home from Iowa in a snow storm.... needless to say the car is on the highway still and he is staying with friends! hopefully some time this week he and the car will all make it back safely to denver! At lest everything is still in working order. I just have to wait for the snow to melt before the car to get back here! But we have a while to craft so i guess it is OK!
and i think my partner and i are going to get a long great!

I was all ready to craft and I have strep. There is no way I am crafting with strep. I have everything planned out and ready to go. I just need to get over strep, lol. Hopefully Sunday I can start in earnest.

I hope you all had the best of holidays.

Thank you for the well wishes everyone. I am sending you hugs. Just far away hugs because I don't want you all to catch it. :) I am doing better. I have asthma too and I would love to sleep, lol. I am going to try to craft tomorrow. I bought a lot of craft supplies during the after Christmas sales and I need to properly put them away. I am definitely starting in earnest on Monday. All my supplies keep eyeing me and taunting me. :)

Well I have some stuff made. Which is cool because it happened by accident.  I was practicing making something new and when it was done I thought "well isn't this nice, I know who would like this". and POW an item for my Beachy partner. yay!
Then I was looking for other stuff in the Craft storage area and again something Jumped up and screamed you want to make this into some thing for your Spa partner. I love it when that happens.Then there is my obsessive list making. I make Santa look disorganization when it comes to lists. I even have my resolution list from last year on my desk top. but the swap list I just started for this and the mug swap it is a list of things I think, I would like to make for a swap, and what I have and what I need to buy to make them. On the list I have all the swaps I am currently in. (and one I am planning to run in Feb a Farm Ville swap) It is my goal to make my packages not disappoint. I don't know if I have been an excellent swap partner in the passed and I know that it must suck to feel slighted.  So this is all part on my New years resolutions for 2010. My poor partner will have to suffer though me planning and crafting all the way up to send out. Poor baby. (wink).

I've only got ideas rattling around in my brain, not being put into action yet. My soaping type supplies are in the garage and we have been having bitter cold weather...so I am thinking until a sunny day (a possibility tomorrow!). OR I might have dh bring in my scents so I can smell them in warmth and think about what direction I want to go...

I've finished up 3 smalls with plans for a few more. The materials for those "few more" have already been acquired and I'll most likely start on them today while sitting in front of the fire place. (It's really darned cold up here!)

There's also a plan in works for an extra bit of special spoilage. Hehehe....I do love stalking...I mean investigative work......

I still have not crafted. Why? Because my eye is swollen. I woke up with it swollen shut. Had an adverse reaction to one of the medications I was taking. The good news I am almost over strep, lol.

 My Mom talked me into taking the Polar Plunge with her and her Penguin club on New Years day.. We both needed a hot shower after being wet and cold for that long It is bout 15-20 degrees here and the Ocean well it is just freaking cold!

    We did have fun but it was so damn cold. My Mom I think is a darn penguin as she was in the water swimming and having fun and you would think it was 90 out. She body surfed into the shore when she finally got out of the water..
My step dad took teh pic of everyone running into the water.

the water was so cold we were red red for hours

This is most of the penguins

Of course it's absolutely freezing here right now plus I am still ill so I don't feel like taking a dip in a cold ocean or chasing storms or doing anything. :)

My ISP is still going in and out. We signed up for different service this evening. Hopefully next week my life will be back to normal. Plus, after I got over strep my eye swelled shut. Everybody was like "You sound so much better but your eye looks horrible." Yeah, lovely friends, ROFL!

I am crafting for this swap but it's really slow since I hardly can see. :) I still have plans to send early.

so I have been trying to craft the last few days and I tried to make a batch of CP soap last weekend but because of where I live I can not find any good scents like eo s which are way too expensive or Fo s which dont work for cp soap. I totally messed up my batch and there was no fixing it!!! I am soo fustrated because the oils are pretty expensive too. so my partner GrindHouseHussy19 may not get any cp soap  :'( but don't worry I will make up for the lack of home made soap!

Thanks for letting me vent !

i just need to make one more thing and wait for the super cute thingy to dry and i will be finished-though im leaving to see my cousins in california on tuesday and after that im going to college so it may be a while before i can send *sigh*

I am going to do a bunch of crafting today. My plans are pay bills, craft when I take breaks from reorganizing my craft room. I look forward to today.

I've waited all night to see if the extra special something that I've been working on would turn out. I had a hard time getting to sleep for worrying about it.

I jumped out of bed as soon as my eyes opened and ran down stairs to check it. I had about a half an hour to carefully to remove ___ so I could see how it progressed before the kids rolled out of bed.

So if you heard a very loud "SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" about 20 minutes ago, it was just me. :D

I can't wait to get this package in the mail.

One of them I'm waiting on some supplies to come in the mail, and the other I have the supplies for. For both of them, I need to wait until the night before I'm ready to send the package. :3 So hopefully I get my supplies this week and can send. If not... I think I'll be able to get what I need from stores if I do some traveling, but it's so much more economical to get them online! TT____TT

I figured I would let everyone know that I am still here, unfortunately I am as sick as a dog. I have some sort of nasty stomach bug that's not letting me eat, and anything I do eat comes right back up. On a brighter side I think I lost 5lbs the last two days, but being bed ridden sucks! I get the sweats from just knitting three rows, oh well. I hope I'm feeling better by the end of the week.

I have to recraft one of the items...I made ____ for me and it didn't work out as expected, so I am going to recraft the ____ I made for my partner before sending out...most likely tomorrow.

 Hello,
    I did extend the swap a bit as several had PM and With the really shitty weather in the USA lately and people being stuck in the home not being able to get supplys it was the right thing to do to extend a bit....Enjoy that extra week all...

Just read a PM from my partner.  It is possible that someone stole the package I sent.  That is so disrespectful if someone did such a crime.  Im waiting to hear from the organizer to hear what she advises!! My feelings are crushed if someone actually stole her package.  >:( :o

 I have a few things to relay to you all..
   1) WOW you all rock!! YOu will all be smelling gooooooo ooooooood after this swap I am just so wow about this one...

    2) I am so angry that a some smelly POS stole your package I will get an angel in the morning..

     3) I am sorry I have been a bit overwhelmed on this swap..with school I changed my major OMG OOPS and 2 little kids but as some of you that are close to my mom ( Babalina58) know she has been sick and was just told friday by accident she has ovarian cancer and had to have surgery and massive chemo. This is so much on her and our family. I am just falling apart on this.

   4) I iwll update all feedback tomarrow morning I think before school if not on my lunch break. Please forgive me on my scatterd mind right now we are all a bit overwhelmed right now.

 Thanks all! I am just keeping on keeping on you know. We are just doing the hurry up and wait thing with her medical team. I know she is so thankful for all her friends here that she has swapped with. She is starting to surround herself with her things people have made for her in all the past swaps. she is redoing her room so while she goes through chemo she can see all her cool things she loves so much her pillows, sock monkey, poppets, dolls things. She is getting everything ready to be laid up a while. She moved the kids swingset out side of her bedroom window so she can watch the kids when she is not doing so good. She is mentally better then anyone I have seen but I think she is scared inside but will not show it to us. My mom is amazing and totally rocks!
 Everyone I am right now going to update feedback, You all ROCK I want you to know this has been such a fun swap really.
