OMG I saw that recipe on Pinterest and made it twice last month! I LOVE it. It's soooo yummy. The guys at work loved it too (my boss almost ate the whole roll himself haha)

Henna should not be used a remedy of any sorts. It colours your hair which is PERMANENT. (Some people find certain brands fade but a straight, good quality henna usually does no fade at all.) The only way to get the henna red colour out of your hair is to cut it off (or go through some really damaging processes with bleach and hair lightening products which will just kill your hair so it's better off cutting it).

Though henna does do amazing things for your hair. If you would like the benefits of henna I suggest using Cassia which is known as a "clear henna" though cassia and henna are actually two different things. Cassia will give you those nice benefits without colouring your hair.

It definitely is a guessing game turning bar soap into liquid soap. Every kind uses a different amount of water.

A stick blender works amazing for this though!! I always melt the soap and let it cool then blend it with the stick blender then decide if it needs more water or not. That seems to work well.

I need to make more soap soon. I'm down to probably less than half a bottle...

Make sure you heat the honey when you use this! Just a warning to all or else it will lighten your hair over time. You should heat it until it bubbles to kill the peroxide in it. Smiley

I LOVE coconut oil for hair!! I use a tiny bit of it all the time just as a leave in for my hair after showers (well, before I cut my hair all off) and honey is absolutely amazing for hair. And for the face. Smiley

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Selling OOAK clothing on etsy.. What sizes to choose? on: March 30, 2012 12:26:00 PM
That's totally me! lol I like doing a lot of reconning right now and I do have a dressform but I still like doing things to my size. One reason being I HATE changing the size of my manniquen and it's just easier doing something to your own size. However I do try to do random sizes. I try to do some small as well as large (I'm medium).

So my idea is just to offer a range of sizes of OOAK. At least for now. Another idea already mentioned is the custom listing where you offer making it in other sizes.

I have some friends (family of 5 girls) and they range in sizing (two oldest are like extra small, second youngest is about a medium-ish and the middle is about large-ish) so I'm using them as models when I photograph myself so I'm using that as help to create other sizes. Do you have some friends of other sizes that you can use to help craft other sizes?

In the long run, for OOAK, the best thing would be to offer custom listings and that will help draw in more customers because making only one size really does kind of push customers away.
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: How much would you pay for these? on: January 27, 2012 04:55:40 PM
I could probably be persuaded to pay 15-20, I'm a stingy one too though.  I think however, that it is because I made a similar bag in the past (not as good as yours by any means) and found it to be quite small.  For 30 I'd need a bit more space.  That's just my humble opinion and possibly worth considering  Smiley

I've got various different sizes. Right now the second purse is my smallest, the top and my other ones are much bigger actually.

Wow, those backs really make an impact.

I LOVE them for summer to wear over bikinis at the lake or even just to wear them on really hot days. Man, they are soo nice when it's super hot out. lol
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A few reconned shirts... on: January 17, 2012 11:22:36 PM
I don't usually post about my creations on here but I'm taking pictures for my blog so I figured I'd post some pictures here as well. The reason I don't usually post is because I don't often take pictures of my stuff. lol

Here's two of my recent recon shirts. Smiley

Maybe I'll post some tshirt scarves next...I have made a ton of them (probably between 10 and 15) and gave a few for Christmas presents.
