1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Christmas Supplies! Ho Ho Ho on: November 13, 2009 09:10:24 AM
Hi everyone,

I usually make a couple live christmas wreaths every year for certain members of the family and they always tell me I should start selling them. Well, this year we are a little low on cash so I think I'm going to take them up on that offer!

I usually get the decorations for the wreaths (bows, small ornaments, sometimes lights, etc) at Michaels since I'm only buying a few. I was wondering if any of you knew where I might be able to buy these items in bulk to cut down on costs.

Thanks so much!

Wow, thanks for all the wonderful suggestions!

I purchased straight acetone from Home Depot yesterday and I am happy to report that it removed the permanent marker instantly! Now I cant wait to start my office gifts!

Thanks again!  Wink

Those are by far the best thing I've seen all week! Great job! Did you free hand these, or use a stencil?

Thank you everyone! I'm going to have to try the acetone. I think i'll buy just one mug and try it first before i get the other 14. hahah. I will let you guys know how that works out.

Thanks again!

Hello everyone!

Quick question:

I am planning on getting holiday themed mugs from my local thrift store to fill with home made goodies for my coworkers, only problem is the thrift store always writes the price in permanent marker on the bottom of the ceramic mug. Does anyone know how to remove this? I have tried to Google it, but no luck so far.

Wow you guys are making me hungry! There goes my diet  Roll Eyes

I am planning on making the ever so popular chocolate dipped pretzel sticks, but I have one question. What do you do with them after you have dipped them while they are drying? I assume you dont lay them down because then that would just ruin them. Whats your method?

8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / MP Soaps...How much base do I need? on: October 22, 2008 08:45:23 AM
Hello everyone!

This coming christmas I plan on making spa kits for my boyfriends family instead of buying individual gifts since 1. i am a broke college student and 2. there are 9 women in his family alone!

I am going to try my hand at some MP soaps. I was wondering though, If I were to make 2 bars for each person (18 bars total) how many lbs of base would I need, and where do you recommend I get it from?

Thanks so  much!

What a great idea!

I do have one question though. what do you use for drainage?

I have a couple of nice ceramic coffee mugs that I wanted to put plants in and display in my kitchen window but I am worried about the drainage and I cant find any cute saucers to put under them. Someone suggested using rocks but I am still unsure.

You seem to know what your doing, so any suggestion?

Thanks!! Smiley
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Chalk Board Paint on Glass? on: August 25, 2008 07:57:32 AM
Hello everyone!

      I am trying to make a memo/chalk board for my new kitchen. The idea is for it to be half wine corks (to tack up important papers) and half chalk board (to write down things we are running low on in the house).

     For the chalk board part I was attempting to spray a piece of glass (from an old picture frame) with chalk board paint because it seemed to be the smoothest surface I had laying around. The can of paint says I can use it on any surface (glass included) but I'm a little worried the chalk will sort of scrape off the paint. Has anyone ever tried this and been successful? If not, what material is best for this paint?

   Thanks in advance!!!!!!!  Wink
