581  Re: Monkey Cupcakes w picture! in Dessert by MareMare on: September 18, 2007 10:58:50 PM
Here's a couple pics of the cupcakes I made, thanks for the great idea! I also made mice!  I forgot to get pics of the boys making a big mess with them when they were eating, but it was cute!

I got my pics developed from iloveoctpus! They are great, I love seeing the small town stuff 'cause I'm in a big city. Here are my faves:

Big house/building

Carved tree

Sweet little mailbox

classic car

some kind of plant drying in a barn??

The rest of the pics

And the best picture frame ever! I love it!
Of course the pic of it is awful, but my new digital camera should be here friday and I will put a new one up! It's got a map all over it and says "you are here" in Scrabble tiles! With a little silver star charm! Thanks iloveoctopus!

I received my very cool large package yesterday! My secret crafster was Babiestarlight13! I had no idea! She sent me some very cool star shaped crayons she made in swirly colors (they are really fun, I may or may not share with my nephews) and a gorgeous quilted wall hanging of shoes!  I love shoes! It's really cute and the white edging around the shoes is done in seed beads. I love it, thanks so much!

585  Re: Shop the Swap - Round 5 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by MareMare on: August 17, 2007 09:49:16 PM


Smoke free and Pet free home. My toddler nephews are frequent visitors, but they are smart enough to know that if they touch my crafting stuff (or my nintendo games) that they will be in deep doo-doo.

Cold Processed All Vegetable Oil Soaps  1 pt. each

Soap bars are approximately 3 1/2 in. x 2 1/2 in. x 1 in. and a minimum of 3.5 ounces. All bars are slightly beveled to be comfortable in the hand, and come in a soap box wrapped in a cigar band (paper band with label) Shipping costs are a little high when I send in box! Since my printer died, my labels are currently pretty wonky. If you need a fancier looking bar for a gift, let me know and I can figure something out (ribbon and mulberry paper, etc).

Ingredients for regular bars: Filtered water, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Sodium Hydroxide (Lye), Synthetic Fragrance Oil or Natural Essential oil (listed with each scent), pigment or mica.

No lye (sodium hydroxide) remains in finished product. My bars are superfatted at 7%, which means there are 7% more oils/butters in the bar than it takes to fully saponify the amount of lye that is used. This makes for a mild bar.

My bars are cured for a minimum of 6 weeks, which makes for a harder and more mild bar. Handmade soap does not like to sit in water, so please use a draining soap holder and make sure to keep it out of the spray of the shower so it doesn't turn to mush.

Available Fragrances:

Lemon Dreams (1 pt.) (8 Available)

Essential oils of lemon, lime, and litsea cubeba with cranberry seeds for gentle exfoliation. This batch was the victim of an unfortunate swirling experiment so the colors are kind of muddled. It has orange, yellow, and pink pigment.

Honey and Oats (1 pt) (1 available

Unscented, except for the natural smell of the old fashioned oats and clover honey mixed into the soap. Uncolored, but the honey turns it a rich brown.

Lime and Black Pepper (1pt.) (9 Available)

Essential oils of lime and back pepper and the tiniest hint of patchouli to give it depth.  Colored with a swirl of neon green and black pigments.

Dragon's Blood (1pt.) (5 Available)
A synthetic fragrance oil that smells like amber, patchouli, vanilla, and ....chocolate?! Loved by anyone who loves hippie or earthy scents. This fragrance discolors to a dark brown/black.

Lavender (1 pt.) (2 Available)

Bulgarian lavender essential oil swirled with purple pigment.

Picture coming soon

Lemongrass Eucalyptus (1 pt.) (4 Available)
A super wake-me-up bar! The fresh lemony, green scent of lemongrass essential oil mixed with the sharpness of eucalyptus essential oil. Green and yellow pigment swirled.

Creamy Vanilla Coconut (1 pt.) (6 Available)
Synthetic fragrance oil, sweet coconut and vanilla. Colored to an off white.

Unscented, with color (5 Available)
This bar is for those with allergies or just prefer an unscented bar. But it's still pretty! Swirled with blue and green.

Pictures and more scents coming soon.

Shea Butter Lotion Bars (1 pt. each)

"What's a lotion bar?" 

Answer: A solid moisturizer that contains oils and butters along with beeswax to harden it.

My lotion bars contain over 50% unrefined shea butter along with cocoa butter, sunflower oil, evening primrose oil, beeswax, vitamin E, and fragrance (synthetic). These are heavy moisturizers, great for super dry elbows, heels, and hands. Slightly greasy feel at first and then sinks into skin. Not recommended for facial skin since these contain non-comodogenic butters.

Lotion bars are 1 oz by weight and are molded in a round mold with a spray of flowers and packaged in a round tin. Great to take in your purse since it can't spill like liquid lotion! Warning: these will melt if left in a hot car all day! (ask me how I know...)

Fragrances Available:

Black Raspberry Vanilla (SOLD OUT)


Mango Sorbet (2 Available)

Pink Grapefruit (1 Available)

Spring Rain (fresh and florally) (2 Available)

Crocheted Dishcloths/Washcloths (1 pt.)
100% Cotton

Yellow Granny Square

Coming soon: Crocheted dishcloths/washcloths with pictures, DIY lip balm and lotion kits, crocheted scarves, sewn crafting aprons, lined coin purses with velcro, liquid lotion, different scents of lotion bars and of course, MORE SOAP!

I've received some more goodies in the last couple of days!

I got an adorable bracelet and pouch from igobylorib. I love the colors, and it is very heavy and feels like good quality!

I also got a wallet and wristlet purse from honorablemention. She did such a great job on these! I'm absolutely in love with the style, craftmanship, and the material!

Thanks so much ladies! I think I'm 8 for 10 on receiving so far!

I got THE BEST tiny thing today! It was a total surprise too, since I checked the mail at 1130 and evidently picked up all the mail that I forgot to get on saturday...and then my mom checked it again and brought more mail in tonight!  The mailman usually comes at 10, so he must have been late today.

Anyhow, Vildhavre sent me a totally awesome mini journal. I love any kind of journal, can never have enough, but this one is so incredibly awesome! She made a scene from Zelda (ocarina of time, my fave!) and it's just gorgeous (and magical!) I'm afraid my pics won't be able to show the amazing detail, but it's incredible! The Deku Tree has brown and green thread leaves and there is even a little Navi made out of sparkly thread! I Love my tiny thing!

This is how sad how my poor camera is: the second, much clearer pic is from...my camera phone!

588  Re: Altoid Tin Theme Swap Round 7 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by MareMare on: August 11, 2007 11:40:54 PM
I received from Superhooker friday and I LOVE my tin! It was literally bursting open with goodies. She used my button theme mostly, but threw in a lot of "wildflower" stuff and a couple of other things that went with my other themes (hair clips ala No Doubt and teapot hair clips that are Jane Austin feeling for my classic lit theme).

THe outside button is pushable! The bottom has little stacked button legs (osh kosh buttons!) Very very creative, I am so impressed and I can't figure out how she did the inside bottom, it's all melted together or something? Even my mom thought it was neat, and she's never impressed.

Wildflower keychain, hair clips, and rings! Along with lots of assorted flower buttons. WOWzers!

I'm very close to being done with Superhooker's tin, but I have massive swap anxiety because I have never done anything like this before, it's kinda a new craft experience for me!

I received my totally cool medium present today from my secret craftster. Now, did she stalk me so well she knew that it would arrive on my birthday???!!! That's just plain good stalking and good planning!

 I got a really cool blue pouch with dividers/pockets on the inside, a black and clear pair of beaded earrings, a blue pair of beaded earrings (I needed blue earrings, these were on my list!!!) and an awesome blue beaded bracelet with a toggle clasp. She was kind enough to make it large enough to fit my big wrist and still be loose enough so it doesn't aggravate my contact dermititis! 

The pics aren't great, I have a crappy camera, so if she has more, maybe she can send them to organizer. But my mama's buying me a new camera for my bday present! Well for one of my three presents, apparently 26 is a spoiling age!

Thanks so much, I love my birthday secret presents!

I had a bunch of goodies in my mailbox today...and it's my birthday! So yay for presents! Sorry the pics aren't great, but part of my present is going to be a new digital camera, so coming soon....good pics!

I got some awesome personalized stationary and note cards from mlsocci.  I have never found anything on it with my name (spelled correctly) so I'm really excited.

I also got my knit washcloths from kayrun. I LOVE knit washcloths, they are always on my swap lists. I can't knit at all (although I continue to try, and continue to curse whilst trying).
The colors are a bit off here, the top one is a pretty rose/mauve color.

Thanks guys!
