11  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / loofah/bath pouf/shower poof/scrubbie on: October 31, 2011 02:49:00 PM
Whatever your name for it is, that's what I was!  This is not new, it's been going around the internet for at least a couple years, but as soon as I saw it I knew one day I would do it!  (I'm pretty sure I even saw it on here, but I can't find it now.)  And MAN, people LOVE the poof!  Everyone would get so excited and happy when they saw me, and then they'd touch me.  It was so much fun!  

I made a simple tube dress out of turquoise jersey material and put 1 inch elastic around the top to give it a more secure fit.  This took about 33 yards of tulle.  All hand sewn to the dress.  I know other people made theirs just bunching and safety pinning, but I didn't want cold metal safety pins touching me.  Or, with my luck, opening and stabbing me!  I wanted it to be nice and thick and squishy!  Then I got 2 little rubber duckies and glued them to some snap barrettes and stuck them on my shoes.  

Hope you like it!

Thanks everyone!  I'm glad it makes people smile, that's what I intended it to do!
15  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Date ALL the Boys!!! hahaha on: October 27, 2011 08:25:45 AM
I wasn't really sure where to put this.  I definitely don't consider it art, but it was fun to do!  So there's a backstory to this ridiculousness:  So first, I fell in love with this blogpost http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/06/this-is-why-ill-never-be-adult.html  then I fell in love with this hoop https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=384091.0.  Well, while I was showing that hoop to my friend and laughing at its awesomeness, he was making fun of me for being on an internet dating site and he said that if I did something it should say Date all the boys!

Fast forward a month or so, my friends and I decide to have a painting party.  There's this trend here in Houston with these places called Pinot's Palette where it's a BYOB painting class.  So we decided to have our own at home.  So we drank margaritas and painted and had a blast!  None of us had ever painted before, but we can not wait to do it again!

So I made this for one of my friends who was also there, who had also just joined a dating site, and who really really loves her wine.  The best part is, there's actually a picture of her on her facebook that looks kind of like this.

Also, she's been using Latisse, so her eyelashes are super long now, so I glued some falsies to the painting.  Just because I thought it was funny.

It made everyone at the party smile and I hope you enjoy it, too!

18  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: UPDATE: Mineral powder makeup - cheap sources for the exact same ingredients on: September 26, 2011 09:58:35 AM
I also have oily skin and have worn just about every brand of mineral makeup known to man because I work in the salon industry.  I would suggest making a batch without the mica.  I have found that if you have oily skin, no matter if you're wearing mineral or traditional liquid foundation, you will look the best later in the day if it is a matte finish.  Any tiny hint of sparkle from that mica becomes sheen once it mixes with your oil and makes you look even more oily.  That has been my experience at least. 

This is so awesome by the way!  Good luck!
19  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Use for Baby Powder? on: September 26, 2011 09:51:25 AM
It's great as a makeup primer (for mineral makeup at least). It just depends on if you prefer the talc or cornstarch version. Also with a little shimmer added, it makes a great finishing powder. But probably the most I use it for is the degreasing of hair. If you're a redhead you can mix in a little cinnamon or even red iron oxide, or if you have darker hair, try mixing a little cocoa powder, but make sure it's pure unsweetened, the kind for baking.

Whoa! Really?  If I were going to use it as a primer which kind should I get?  The talc or cornstarch version?  Also, I'm totally gonna mix up a little "dry shampoo" with cinnamon and baby powder.  Thanks for the tip!

I'll put it in my shoes occasionally to keep them from getting funky.  And I've used it as a litter refresher when I've run out of the Arm and Hammer stuff and don't feel like buying more.  I've also used it as carpet/couch deodorizer before I vacuum in place of that super strong smelling carpet powder.
