1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / trouble with lip balm tubes? on: November 29, 2009 07:30:33 PM
I haven't spent much time in this forum lately so I'm sorry if this has been covered.

I tried to make lip balm for the first time yesterday.  YAY.  I used a premade mix from TheChemistryStore.com and added flavoring, stevia and a bit of mica.  I poured it into the tubes and it all seemed to be going well...
but then today when I tried to actually use the tubes, they don't work!  Sad  8 of the 10 tubes just don't work.  I twist and twist and the balm doesn't move up or down...

Has anyone else had this problem?  Is it too soft?  Too hard?  Did I pour it while it was too hot?  I don't get it.

I am so proud of these, I just have to share.

I've been playing with lotion bar recipes and finally created one I like.  Of course, the packaging is the best part.  I had trouble figuring out how to label them, but I got some round labels... I wish I had pictures.  Maybe later.

Sweet Lavender (Vanilla bean and lavender)

White Chocolate

Honeysuckle Tea

I've also got a Raspberry Blossom version in the works. 
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Vegan Lotion Bars? on: March 15, 2007 07:17:09 AM
I've been playing around with lotion bars made with beeswax, butter and oils.

I'm interested in making them with a vegan wax.  Brambleberry sells Candellila Wax -- has anyone had any luck using this in lotion bars?

Any other suggestions?  Maybe a soy based wax?
4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Sparkle Fluff on: December 05, 2006 02:54:00 PM
I've been experimenting with salt scrubs and came up with this...

I call it Sparkle Fluff.  Smiley

This one is peppermint and vanilla and it smells just like peppermint ice cream. 

This one is half mocha and half fresh bread scent.  I think it smells like brioche and coffee.

I'm working on a coconut and lime one as well. 
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Bracelets Galore [oh, the images] on: November 06, 2006 07:11:43 AM
Ghost beads and blue and black crystals

Glass and silver

And this one is just a collection of a bunch of leftover glass beads.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Fun with earrings [lots o pictures] on: November 06, 2006 07:02:36 AM
I don't usually make earrings, but I figured I could use up some of my stray beads.

Silver and malachite

Green crystals and Carnelian

Green crystal and blue glass -- they're a lot more flamboyant than my usual style.

Blue crystal and red glass
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / New random necklaces [image crazy] on: November 06, 2006 06:51:09 AM
I've been on a jewelry-making-craze lately.  Here are some of the results.

I think this is white agate -- I'm terrible about keeping tags on things -- freshwater pearls and a wooden button pendant.  It's extra long so it can be doubled up with the dragonfly clasp in front.

This one is a lavender agate I think, with teal crystals.  It has a crazy pendant...

A double strand necklace with amethyst and caramel colored crystals. I think they look like cream soda.

Last I made this one -- it's mother of pearl, malachite and some kind of green stone (jasper maybe?) 

It has a really exciting clasp.
8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Caramel Apple Jack Soaps on: October 16, 2006 03:57:53 PM
I made these the other day.  I found the CUTEST muffin pan at A.C. Moore and just had to use it.

They're Caramel Apple scented.  So very festive.  Smiley

9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Rainbow Soapy on: October 14, 2006 12:14:42 PM
I've been thinking about this design for a while now.  I finally figured it out. 
So, here's my rainbow mosaic soap. 

It's got a soapy clean scent so I call it .
10  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Don't let the turtle escape! on: September 28, 2006 07:24:40 AM
Ok, so I'm in love with these soaps.  But, I'm easily amused.  What do you think?

The big one is escaping...

And his little brother

The turtles are lime scented and the blue water is citrusy.
