Did you design the pattern yourself?  It's absolutely beautiful!  Looks so cozy.

Wow, this is absolutely beautiful!  I'm curious - how did you cut all this out?  I'm guessing Xacto knife, but whatever you did, it's amazing.
14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Easy, chic, & cheap flower headbands on: September 07, 2009 11:04:46 PM

I've been coveting the cute flower headbands I see at Urban Outfitters, but was never willing to pony up the money for them.  They're so expensive and I always thought I could make them on my own.  When I went to the dollar store a few days ago, I realized just how right I was.  I got everything I needed to make 5 or 6 of them for only 2 dollars (three if you want more than one type of flower).  Talk about a deal.

I started with these.  Kinda tacky, but they work without all the leaves.  Buy a bunch of elastic headbands (I got a pack of eight) and you'll be good to go.

I made the headband in the first picture with the smaller flowers and this one with one bigger flower.

Three flower headband off of my head.

Big flower headband off of my head.

This is the back for the three flower headband.

And this is the back for the big flower headband.

I think from the pictures, it's pretty clear that all I did was glue the elastic headbands onto the flowers.  So easy!  But if you want more detailed directions, you can check it out at the blog I write for: http://www.boredla.com/craftiness-is-next-to-godliness-pretty-for-pennies/

Comments and criticism are always welcome!

Wow, Candid, that skirt looks great! It goes perfectly with your bathroom and, like you said, pulls the whole thing together.  I'm incredibly flattered that you used my idea in your house and I'm glad it turned out well.

I love the vintage tile work in your bathroom as well.  I have similar tiles in white with yellow trim (not as hideous as it sounds, though I didn't have much choice in the matter, since it's a rental) and it definitely gives the room character...though it does sort of dictate how you have to decorate.
16  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Homemade soothing face mask recipe on: September 07, 2009 12:02:33 AM
Hi there!

I'm definitely a newbie to the world of bath and beauty, so I'm not sure if this is in the right place.  If it is, awesome.  If not, please let me know and I'll take it down/move it to wherever it should go.

No pictures because the mask I made turns out looking pretty gross, but it's great for your skin.  I used it last night on my sunburnt face and it worked wonders to soothe and reduce the redness.

All you have to do is put 1/2 an avocado, a few tablespoons of honey, and 1/8 cup oatmeal in the blender and blend until the avocado is smooth.  Bonus points if the avocado was refrigerated before you blend it...the cooler it is, the more soothing it will feel.  Put it on your face for ten minutes, then gently wipe off with a towel soaked in cool water.  You might have enough left over for another mask.  If that's the case, you can keep it in the fridge for a couple days.  Just put the avocado pit in with the remaining mask so it doesn't turn brown.

The avocado and honey are great moisturizers and the oatmeal soothes irritated skin.  It's perfect for sunburn, but would also be great in the winter if your skin is dried out from heated air or harsh weather.

This is such a great idea and they look awesome! 

Just a little sidenote, though.  Most of the stuff sold as oilcloth is actually cloth sealed with PUL (real oilcloth is sealed with linseed oil).  The jury's still out on whether PUL is food-safe, so for anyone looking to get the supplies to make these, you might want to look for fabric that doesn't use PUL or you could even try making your own oilcloth.  There's a tutorial for it (I haven't tried it yet) on Curbly : http://www.curbly.com/ModHomeEcTeacher/posts/6857-real-oilcloth-and-how-to-make-it

Wow, that sure looks like you spent a lot more on it.  Amazing work!

Ooh, good luck!  I imagine that they'd be a good, inexpensive way to get a house looking more polished before you sell it.
