1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Can I Make Shea Butter Shower Cream? on: April 27, 2012 01:07:10 AM
I recently fell in love with True Blue Spa's Super Rich Shower Cream by Bath & Body Works. Needless to say, at $15 a bottle I won't be getting it very often. It advertises as a cleanser and a moisturizer, but it goes on like a thick lotion while you're in the shower. I've tried doing research to find a tutorial to make something similar but can't seem to find anything.

Does anyone have any idea how I can make something exactly like it?
2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Two Nail Marbles (Pink and Blue Girly and Sparkly, Dark & Swirly) on: April 27, 2012 12:46:39 AM
I researched how to nail marble and decided to share what I've done recently. Excuse the sucky pics.
I marbled my friends nails:

And then I marbled my nails the same night:

I edited the photos so that they're flipped, but when I post the link it still shows them th way they were at first  Huh Sorry about that.

Thanks for looking!
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Paper Bead Jewelry (2 Bracelets and Earrings) on: April 27, 2012 12:37:18 AM
Hopefully, this in in the right place...

I find that I'm addicted to making paper beads. Thus far, I've only been concerned with expanding my collection but my boyfriend inspired me to actually to start making things, so, here goes!

This is how I closed it off. Is there a better way to do it? (Ignore the chipped polish)

I doubled the cord on itself and used crimp beads after I knotted it.

This isn't true to color at all. (One day I'll become a better photographer lol)

And the matching bracelet. Ignoring the shadows, this one is true to color.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My Paper Bead Collection (Pic Heavy) First Post Ever on: April 27, 2012 12:24:26 AM
I've crafted many things that I probably should have posted already, but I guess I never felt proud enough to make them my first post.
Lately, I've been inspired by Amelialune to make paper beads. I'm just learning, so they aren't perfect, but here's my collection so far.

I'll post them as thumbnails so this doesn't get overwhelming  Smiley

Black Striped

Pink Striped

Turquoise & Purple

Some of my favs so far

Green Striped

Purple & Black Striped

Brown Striped

Red & White Striped

Blue & Black Striped

Grey Scrapbook Paper

Purple Scrapbook Paper

White Wrapping Paper

I find that this is quickly becoming an addiction, so I intend to buy some paper bead rollers this weekend and hopefully I'll get a more polished result with practice.

Thanks for looking! Questions or comments welcome!
