Soap and water and common sense are the best disinfectants.

Saturday, March 13, 2010

I just got done making some soap. I had made a bunch for all my family at Christmas, and now everyone wants some more, and since I'm driving 6 hours to visit my mother, I thought I'd make her some.

OH has sensitive skin, and we decided to make some soap that would work for it.
It was basically "Here lets put this in too and see if it works."
Eventually we got a good recipe...though it sounds crazy.

olive oil, shea butter, almond milk, honey, finely ground oatmeal, and a hint of peppermint oil, for that extra boost on the mornings we need to wake up.
I've got no real recipe, we just kinda go by feel. I love it because I can get that clean feeling with no sticky feeling brand soaps give.
We got the soap stamp things at Micheal's, and I love the damask print one (top bar), it was the whole reason we bought the set!

love and glue guns,

The Girl Creative

My baby Simon is purring...while his brother Peanut keeps staring at him wondering what hes doing.

Oh, I'm so excited!

After a horrible few hours to start my day off, I had a lovely surprise! I went to check the mail, and had a package, (side note, I LOVE getting packages), inside of it was large selection of Moda Flutterby fabric squares! Definitely uplifted my day, tenfold.

So many cute prints, and too many ideas! I'll keep you posted.

Doggy Bed!

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

So this weekend my OH thought it would be a good weekend to learn to sew! So I taught.
It was a fun experience, I had made dog beds before, and OH wanted to make one for a co-worker.

We used a bunch of fleece squares and some solid black. It took two days, but the quality time was worth it!

Photos and more after the jump!

Dresser Re-vamp!

Friday, March 5, 2010

When I was 17 I did something that could only be described as "Not The Best Idea".
I painted a dresser that had been handed down through three generations...I loved the results at the time, but now I've decided I'm not a fan of it. I have plans to restore it to an even better condition than how I received it; I just hope it works out how I envision it.
See more after the jump!

Some past projects.

So to get some sort of project on here, I figured I'd post some things I did in the past month or so,

I made this for my OH for Valentine's Day.

The heart is a puzzle I just painted and left a piece out. You can still see the puzzle lines, but this image isn't the best quality (sorry). Project cost? $2. Dollar store frame and puzzle I didn't mind destroying.

So Here It Goes...

My first post.
I'm a crafter, I love to make things, and instead of keeping them all to myself, I'm going to basically bombard you all with pictures and tutorials.
