1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Simp 3739 - Mini Dress w/pleats - Cute? on: January 20, 2008 04:24:50 PM
I really like length 2.  I can see the maternity look to it in the other lengths but #2 has more of the in shirt look to it.  It comes to a nice flattering length.  I always like tops and jackets that hit right around there- kind of mid-hip.  It's usually really flattering.  Great fabric and sewing on it at any length you choose though!  Wink

You can also make ordinary things more fun for kids like with the mashed potatoes let them shape it into volcanoes and then have the "volcanoes" overflow with gravy "lava". 
Salads can be made fun for kids too by using hardboiled eggs or egg slices as faces and making little people or creatures with it on top of the main lettuce base( shredded cheese hair, raisin eyes, carrot + celery stick bodies etc.)

Ants on a log are a fun kid's snack- fill celery sticks with peanut butter for the "log" and place raisins on top as the "ants".

Pizza bagels or Pizza englishmuffins are always fun too.  They can spread the sauce themselves and decorate them with toppings (again making all sorts of faces etc. with things like peppers and such) and then just stick in the microwave or oven for a couple of minutes and voila! you're done. 

I used to be the director of an afterschool program so I've done a lot of kid's cooking projects.  Any simple recipe will work.  If you can add food coloring to your project or make faces out of it all the better!

She is so sweet!  I love those dolls!  Did you use regular canvas type tote material?  That's usually pretty tough and I'm impressed at how well your stitches came out.  Great job!

Very cute!  Do they actually help to get rid of dark or puffy under eye circles or just make some of the acheyness go away?  I can never seem to get enough sleep and always have shadows under my eyes.  I've read tips and tried out putting a metal spoon in the freezer and then hold on the eye for 30 seconds or so but it's always kind of hard to tell if it actually has helped too much.  Either way they're absolutely adorable.
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: alternative 2 make up remover on: December 22, 2007 05:24:55 PM
I agree that in general you should be careful putting anything oily near your eyes but sweet almond oil has long been considered a very gentle more eye safe remover.  Some upscale makeup companies even bottle it up fancy and sell it at high prices as such.  You can find it at places like whole or natural food stores for decent prices though.  I would also be careful with the witch hazel.  Someone mentioned using that for eye makeup.  Witch hazel is a strong astringent and is great for clearing up break outs etc. but I would definitely not want to get it into my eyes!
6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: lip balms i made tonite on: December 22, 2007 05:18:53 PM
These are great!  As both a lip balm and altoids fanatic I might have to try this sometime.  I've always meant to try to make some of my own lip balm.  I've melted beeswax for candles many a time but never for balm.  That would be an awesome use for all of those empty altoid tins I have laying around (right now I use them as gift boxes for small jewelery etc. for people)  Thanks for sharing!

These are adorable!  I hadn't seen any like this before!  I also agree with one of the earlier comments and think that they look very professional like they were out of a candy shop.  Thanks for the recipe I just might have to try this!

Great job!  Like the others I also love the neckline.  Did you tailor the sides as well though?  It seems to have a nice fitted overall look.  (Maybe just capping the sleeves brought it out?)

Great job!  I love the element of story telling that goes along with this project!  I also really like both origami and recycling so I particularly enjoyed the recycled magazine's transformations.  Thank you too to Sweets4ever and Madeleinelucy for the star tutorial links.  I am definitely going to give those a try!

Awesome!  I love recon projects!!  This is a great one- totally drab before to a total hip mod look after!  Nice job!
