41  Re: *Subculture Swap* in The Swap Gallery by Shotgun_Bettie on: March 30, 2005 10:48:08 PM
Ok me again Smiley Like I mentioned before dangerkitty is a total rockstar for sending me so much amazing stuff. I was like a kid at christmas digging around in the little box pulling out more and more treasures! I told her my Subculture Genre's were: Punk, Goth, and Nerd

First, she made me some really cool self laminated coasters! They're very much needed and are of one of my favorite Irish punk bands Flogging Molly..

Second, a super cool iron on patch that she made herself that I'm planning on sticking on my plaid messanger bag I have. It's from the punk band Rancid..

Thirdly I got some FAN-FREAKING-tastic jewellery, I love the little candy colored letter beads, they look like mini marshmellows. The bracelet is so geeky good it says: I <3 Nerds, Byte me, Geek Gawds, and I <3 Linux!! And uhm.. yes.. the earrings do say what you think they say.. they so rawk.

Fourth, This is a recon'd good sized tin that she did a great job on. I'm not sure how to describe it, but it has a pic of the starship Enterprise (Trekkie Geekdom) on the front.. then it's covered with super neat little plastic squares (I have no idea how she did this but it looks damn cool) and then it has pretty rhinestones all around the edges. It's currently on my desk holding all my earrings and making me happy.Smiley

Last, and my total favorite *dance of glee* is a covered soft journal that dangerkitty recovered. It's covered in what I think is vintage STAR WARS FABRIC!! (yes I am that geek)

This was such a great swap, thanks to my swap buddy and hawaiilove for organizing  Wink

42  Super Yummy Smelling Soaps in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Shotgun_Bettie on: March 28, 2005 02:50:46 PM
My husband and I try and make different kinds of crafts for all our friends for christmas every year. Two years we made cookies-in-a-jar and last year I talked him into helping me make soaps for everybody Smiley
It was my first time trying out Melt and Pour soap and I decided I didn't want to go with the usual floral or fruity scents.  We went with Bakery scents, I bought:

Gingerbread, Chocolate Cake, Glazed Doughnut, Cinnamon Crunch,and  Baked Apple Pie... Mmmmmm (and I just bought a Blueberry Cheesecake scent this week!)

So these are the soaps we ended up making, I used a massage bar mold, and plain bar mold that said 'homemade' and a floral bar mold Smiley The tags were real fun to make up too, I packaged them in a small ziplock with a tag for each scent.

We then decided to make up some Bubblebath/Body Wash/Shower Gel with some of the left over scents, unscented liquid handsoap, and a little soap color (they turn out a lot like the Philosphy stuff)

So yeah, a little late for Xmas posting but still..  Wink

43  Re: I love philosophy products...so how can I make my own? in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by Shotgun_Bettie on: March 28, 2005 02:21:35 PM

I buy her Bakery scents and they are AMAZING.. .you can use them in candles or soaps. I've never had any problems and her scents are strong and mix really well.

To make my own body wash/shower gel/bubble bath with soap scents I just go to the drug store and buy a big bottle of unscented clear hand soap, mix it in a measuring cup (if I'm making a huge batch I use a bowl with pour spout).. I add my soap scent (usually about 1 drop per cup of soap) and a little soap coloring (about 2 drops per cup of soap), mix it all up, and pour into bottles or whatever squeezie containers I have kicking around.

I made Mint Chocolate Chip body wash, and Cinnamon Bun shower gel in the soap baskets I made people of Christmas

Ooh and I just found a pic of the Cinnamon Bun stuff I made at Xmas.. I used a pearly hand soap for that..

Okie dokie, dangerkitty got the package of swap stuff I sent her so I'm posting up the pics for both of us Smiley
She said she liked "
 I <3 checkerboard, skulls, martinis, piercings, cats, swallows, traditional tattoos, pinups (esp. Bettie Page), leather, shoes, studs, etc...." so this is what I came up with..

Some Bettie Page marble magnets for her fridge

The small empty coffee tin I last minute decorated and put them in for safe shipping

A really crappy pic of the shrinky dink earrings I made, they're Bettie Page and flaming cherries

A bar of my 'Death by Chocolate' skull soap (I made a batch for this swap and the skull swap, gotta love cross swapping)

A little decorative pillow, the front is made from leopard print flannel, the back is black with silver glitter cotton, then I used an iron on decal with swallows and a banner with dangerkitty's name on it

..A rockibilly Cherries sleep mask, these are fun and easy to make!

Last.. bought a neat art/note card at Pikes Pier in Seattle that I thought she'd like.. it's oozing seduction pinup girl. If I wasn't so lazy I probably could have made one.. oh well.

The bag I sent her:

Amazing bag! Can I ask what you used for the skull on the front?

47  Bad Skully Kitty Stencil in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Shotgun_Bettie on: March 19, 2005 11:18:58 PM
This is my latest stencil, it's on a black shirt and was for my swap buddy in the Skull Swap.. I'm really happy with the way the silver acrylic paint (mixed with textile base) really makes the stencil pop.

48  Death by Chocolate Skully Soap in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Shotgun_Bettie on: March 19, 2005 11:05:12 PM
I was just recently in the 'Skull Swap' and since I've been mucking around with melt and pour soap for awhile I wanted to combine the two. Let me tell you it's not easy to find a skull soap mold, and then one that doesn't look like some kind of 'C' horror movie reject!

I ended up finding a great one on Ebay, a single cavity mold that makes one round bar that's about 3.5" across by 2" deep. I used a Chocolate Cake soap sent.. and a little green and orange dye to make a slight brown. Voila..

Death by Chocolate Soap *skulltastic!*

And then the little label on the back has a skull and a chocolate Easter bunny missing an ear Wink

Mmmmmm chocolate...

I had a long crappy day at work that was made a million times better by the amazing Skull swap package I got from Kuruku! This is my first swap so I was pretty excited to begin with  Roll Eyes

These are really cool jewelry hangers, they're cut from wood and have a little 'C' hook on the front for hanging your pretty baubles and a little hook on the back for attatching them to the wall. I don't know if you used a jig saw or what Kuruku but I totally love the shape Smiley

..and then I opened a little box to find carefully wrapped a set of super cute skully earrings, a gold and bronze colored skully pendant and 2 amazing snap barettes that look exactly like little Day of the Dead sugar skulls. The little beading detail on these are awesome.  Shocked

..Next.. (I was spoiled) I got a super soft and really pretty 'knitted Skull cap' toque (I'm Canadian we say toque). I love it, it hasn't left my head since I got home, although my just-got-off-work look doesn't honor it much.

..and last but deffinatly not least.. I got a felt softie skeleton. He's so cool it hurts. I gave him a hug and decided after almost naming him Leroy that he's much more a 'Rasputin'.. he's currently trying to put the moves on my Doom stuffie kitty on the couch.

Thanks again Jess, I love the stuff you sent, it was a great first swap  Smiley

50  My Flippin' Sweet Napoleon Dynamite Tote Bags.. *pic heavy* in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Shotgun_Bettie on: January 29, 2005 10:52:41 PM
My new passion is purses and I made one of these for myself and was smart enough to buy extra fabrics just incase. *go me!* So I'm walking around the mall and such with my new spiffy NP tote and everybodies freaking because they like it. I got mobbed in Claires!

My Liger tote..The front and back have heat press decals

The Inside has a stenciled pocket that says 'Idiot!'

and my second tote I finished today... I stenciled the front  Cheesy The rest is the same

I had a lot of fun making these and they turned out really really well, I was excited  Grin
I'm kind of nervous but I thought I'd try selling them on eBay. I've sold stuff before but never something DIY that I've made. If anybody that's sold purses on eBay has any advice it'd be appreciated  Smiley
Thanks for looking!
