111  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: Open House on: February 01, 2005 06:16:47 AM
A few years ago I used to be in the direct sales business....selling candles...I won't say the name....but this one girl got about 7 other consultants in other direct sales businesses and we had an open house at her house.  We made a post card with the open house date and who was going to be there, each of us sent that post card to everyone in our contact list and even gave some away.  We set up posters around town and had a GREAT day!  There was a guest book at the door and all of us shared the people on the guest list.  We also donated something to put in a huge basket and had a raffle.  What a great turn out! 
  Good luck with starting an Open House and getting your business started.
112  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: Age an issue? on: February 01, 2005 06:04:53 AM
I think you will be great at your craft shows.  I, myself would want to talk to you because of your age and find out why you are crafting.  I think that is wonderful.  The big thing for me is when I am looking at different crafts, if the "crafter" is rather snootie, or gives the impression she/he is above everyone else, she/he won't get my business.  I have found so many unique things at craft shows, some wonderful talented people, and made a lot of new friends.  Good luck to the both of you young ladies.  I am sure you will have a wonderful time and learn so much!   Grin

118  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Plastic Cat Litter Containers on: November 30, 2004 05:26:16 AM
I have a few of those Kitty Litter containers.  I live an area that can get kind of wet in the basement so I keep one in the basement as a bucket, I also have a couple of them outside with transplanted Plants in them.  I just poked a few holes in the bottom and there ya have it.
 Another thing that came to mind when I was worried about people's cigarett butts being tossed all over my back yard during a graduation party for my son.  I painted the outside, filled it with sand and painted "Butt Bucket" in big red letters.  People used that and we didn't have to go nuts with all the cigarett butts in the lawn.   Tongue
  Did store some tools in them.....hey, with the holidays coming up, what a great place to hide gifts!   Cool
119  COOKING / Dessert / Gifts in a Jar on: November 29, 2004 09:23:59 PM
Hello everyone,
   I was hoping some of you could help me find or offer some good recipes to make Gifts in a Jar.  I have a few I found on the internet but some just didn't taste that great.   Undecided Was hoping to do a lot for Christmas gift baskets and this would be a nice thing to add to the basket.  If anyone can help, I would be VERY thankful!    Grin

Thanks in advance! 
120  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: sugar scrub (?) on: November 29, 2004 07:30:44 PM
If you are using oils, use a cheap, vegetable base oil (for example, grapeseed - this is the cheapest) and add 10-15% of wheatgerm oil. Wheatgerm is a natural antioxidant and is used in aromatherapy to preserve oils for as long as possible.
You could also use honey as a base, as it is a natural exfoliant.

If your skin is too sensitive for sugar, you could try using oats.

If you want to use natural products, they won't last a great deal of time.

Any sorry to be a kill joy, but as an aromatherapist, I would urge you to be extremely careful when incorporating e.os into your homemade cosmetics as some can be toxic when not used properly!

Thanks for the great advice....I am a newbe here...I just wanted to add that Grapeseed is great for my skin and I have extremely sensitive skin.  Smiley  Love all the post!
