2  UNITED STATES / Louisiana / Lake Charles Knit N Needle on: January 26, 2006 07:28:43 PM
I just discovered a darling little yarn shop in Lake Charles called Knit N Needle.  It's on the corner of Hodges and 5th.  They have a knitting group Thursdays from 6:30 - 8:30 and on Saturdays from noon - ?  I am brand new to knitting and they were very helpful.  Check it out if you're in Southwest Lousiana.
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Iron-on letters not ironing on on: March 24, 2005 01:55:48 PM
My first attempt with iron-on letters was less than disastrous.  Parts of letters stuck, some didn't stick at all.  Some seemed to melt a little.  The result was very inconsistent.  I used a dry iron (no steam) on the cotton setting per the directions on the package.  Any suggestions for better luck next time?
4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / essential oils on: February 06, 2004 08:42:31 AM
Anyone have any essential oil advice? I have a few bottles but I'm not impressed.  (lavendar, tea tree, peppermint & eucalyptus) The smell is so overpowering that it's just not appealing.  Someone told me that most essential oils don't smell very good.  I thought maybe the quality was poor but I bought them at a health food store and they weren't cheap.  It's hard to judge how much to put in the mix, whether it's soap or salts.  I have some salts that I can't use because I put too much and my soaps don't smell at all because I didn't put enough.

I'm just curious if anyone has a particular brand or source to recommend and which ones might be more pleasing to smell.
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / soap embedded w/ vellum on: February 04, 2004 07:08:10 PM
I've been stalking, um, I mean lurking around here for a while but haven't posted anything crafty yet.  I was inspired by the inquiry about embedding shrink plastic in soap and by the fact that Hobby Lobby has soap supplies 50% off this week.  But I decided to try an image printed on vellum.  Surprisingly, it turned out better than I thought.  I'm thinking of making these for my upcoming wedding, either as favors for guests or presents for the wedding party.  (That image is on my invitations.)

Although this isn't the craftiest of crafts compared to what I've seen you all do, I am just proud of myself for finally doing something other than marble magnets, marble pins, marble picture frames, did I mention marble magnets?  

The soap was extremely easy - the hardest part was trying to get the right amount of scent in the mix.  Any suggestions?  

I've got some cinnamon/oatmeal & green tea bars cooling as I type.


Apologies if I have done anything wrong here with this post - I am new to the message board world.  Smiley
