1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Perfect Winter soap suggestions on: December 24, 2008 01:46:16 AM
So, I always have itchy winter skin.  I'm working on the perfect remedy soap lol  So far:  Shae butter, a little vitamin E, oatmeal, and coffee melt and pour.  The coffee wonderfully exfoliates (a little to well, I think I put to much or didn't ground it long enough), but want to add a little more moisturizing to it.  I felt festive, and actually went with pumpkin pecan pie coffee lol  I'm using a M&P base.  I was thinking, could I add some olive oil maybe?  How much would you suggest?  Would the smell be overpowering?  I would be using extra light oil, but in some bath salts, I noticed it's still strong.  Maybe that's just my pregnant nose though.  Any other good itchy skin ingredients I can add or other suggestions?
2  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / Calling on Brooklyn, a little christmas present help on: November 15, 2008 02:46:22 AM
Dunno if this is the right place to post this, but what the heck...  So my bf grew up in Brooklyn (Canarsie to be exact), and just recently left it all to move to the middle of nowhere rural Tennessee.  I know he gets homesick, so I wanted to frame some pictures for him of Brooklyn for Christmas.  I was hoping some of you out there with cameras could help me out by taking some pictures for me to photoshop and frame for him.  I know he in particular misses hanging out on the stoop with friends, and being able to just walk around the corner to the market.  Oh yeah, and Dunkin Donuts.  I personally love alleys, fire escapes, wet rainy streets at dusk or night, trains, and graffetti (I can't spell).  None of the pictures would be used for profit, just trying to bring a little of his home into ours.  If anyone out there is willing to give a girl a hand with the holidays, lemme know.

By the way, they don't have to be professional pics, just some digital pics I can edit and play with.
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / I hate my job swap? on: November 13, 2008 01:53:08 AM
It's been a crappy day, and I thought it would be nice if those of us that hate dragging ourselves in to our thankless jobs, made things for our fellow job haters.  Things to take our minds off how bad it is lol  Pampery things, words of encouragement, vodoo dolls of our managers/customers, I don't know.

Or maybe I've just had a bad day...
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Housekeeping Appreciation week ideas?? on: August 30, 2008 10:36:13 PM
 work in a hotel, and this coming week is Housekeeping Appreciation week.  Everyone at the front desk is supposed to do something for housekeeping to let them know we appreciate all their hard work.  Most people are bringing in food, I wanted to do something crafty.  But I'm stuck on ideas.  I was thinking maybe bath satchets and peppermint foot soak, as I already have the Epson salts.  Any other ideas that would be neutral enough for 12 different girls to like?  Also, would anyone be able to translate the instructions for me?   Are the differences between the Spanish I learned in high school and Mexican really that different?  Thanks in advance for any ideas and help.

To let you know, I can sew a little, embroider, make candles, cook, and anything pretty basic.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / A little help with bare bulbs. on: July 25, 2008 11:49:35 PM
I moved in to a very old house. The lights in each room are just bare bulbs in the ceiling.  I was wanting to make some sort of shade for them.  I use the energy saving long life bulbs.  Any recommendations on how much room I need to leave around the bulb for fire safety?  Also best way to go about shaping the shade.  I was thinking something simple that I could hang from the ceiling that will be light weight, so maybe screen for the frame.  What fabric would work best to still allow lots of light.  Hope this makes sense, I'm only 1/4 awake and haven't had my coffee.  Any suggestions and maybe photographs of others crafty ways of dealing with this problem are welcome!
