These are lovely - thanks for posting the recipe, too, I have been looking for one with cocoa butter in it. Smiley
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Ideas for horse lover on: November 10, 2010 11:26:14 AM
I'm a hunter seat horsey girl, so in addition to the great ideas you've already been given, I always appreciate:

1. Horse treats, packaged in a cute/creative way (critter-proof containers are always nice). Bob's peppermints or starlight mints, carrots, iced oatmeal cookies, and apples have all met with the horsey seal of approval. There are some DIY horse treat cookie recipes out there too - would be cute with a personalized "Pony Treats" cookie jar or something like that.

2. My hands are always cold, so fingerless gloves or mitts for grooming/tacking in warm style: also ski-style earwarmer band things are great, and cowls (instead of scarves with loose ends that are a safety hazard) are really nice, too. Warm socks that fit slimly underneath riding boots and breeches (lightweight fleece is good). Fleece zip-up vests and pullovers are nice for riding in cold weather, too.

3. Lip balm, moisturizer, hand sanitizer, break-resistant water bottle for post-riding hydration, maybe packaged in a small insulated bag made from equine print fabric? (I carry these with me everywhere, I also ride at a barn about 40 minutes from my house.)  Maybe something like this for the bag: http://planetgreen.discovery.com/home-garden/lunch-diy-accessories.html

4. Anything personalized with her horse's name - like a hanging stall sign, baseball cap to cover up helmet hair, keepsake box, photo album or frame,  see also #5 below.

5. Home-etched glassware with horse-y silhouettes. I haven't tried this yet, but think it would be pretty easy to make a stencil from clipart, and then use either a glass etching kit or frosted glass spray paint (you're only supposed to use the paint for decorations, so this wouldn't work for anything that would contain food).  Or personalize some mugs or wineglasses with food safe glaze.

6. Have a coffee mug, t-shirt, cap, or tote printed with her horse's photo on it.

7.  If you like woodworking, a nice grooming box, tote, bridle rack, saddle stand, or anything like that would be great.

Aw, thanks!!   

The rose ones are more saturated in color than I've seen Turkish Delight, but definitely have the same sort of pearly sheen the candy does, if that makes sense?

6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Snowflake Soap for Winter Holidays on: December 28, 2009 08:10:07 AM
Just some fun snowflake shaped soap for the winter holidays: I used a Wilton silicone mini cake mold and that made releasing the soap super-easy! I used pearl mica and maybe 2 drops of liquid labcolor for sparkle and shine.

Rose essential oil and fir needle essential oil.

Peppermint essential oil and blackberry spice blend.

Thanks for looking!

10  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Adventures in Beginner Soapcraftiness - Embossed Soap on: July 10, 2009 06:13:33 AM
I'm a beginner, but have been having a great time experimenting with M&P soap: these embossed soaps were so much fun to make, and easy, too!  Just "glue" a rubber stamp to your soap mold with some melted soap, pour in the rest of your soap, let harden, unmold, and voila! 

Vanilla Bean soap, with shea butter.

Peppermint soap, with shea butter and cosmetic grade glitter.

Glycerine and olive oil soap with litsea cubeba EO.

Thanks for looking!
