Make It and Love It How about showing off a few things you’ve been making lately……and join in on the this week’s Link Party! So, here’s the deal, every Saturday, I will host a You Made It and Love It party, where you can simply click on the blue button at the bottom of the post, add your name, the URL to your project, and upload your image………and then click “done” to share.

Customers have seen scoops of Sugar Scrub looking like scoops of Ice Cream around their local farmers markets and craft fairs and have asked us for a recipe, so here it is! If you make “novelty” or “food” Bath & Body, this suits perfectly, you can serve ithis scrub as a “scoop”, or if you love the texture, but prefer a non-food type product, a Bail Jar, Economy Tub or Wide Neck Jar will also work beautifully to present the scrub. To really jazz this up, try some budget parfait glasses or dessert bowls, often you can find these in thrift shops, or even places like Big W. What you'll need You'll also need a medium to large sized microwavable bowl or jug, spatula, electric hand whisk and regular Melt & Pour Colours and Fragrance or Essential Oils. Note 1: Fragrance Choice – if selecting “foody” fragrances, such as Oatmeal Milk & Honey, Gingersnap, Ginger Souffle, Mint Chocolate Chip, Dark Rich Chocolate the soap mixture will discolour honey/tan colour.

Boo: I think I want to be President one day.Me: I think that’s great. Can I come live in the White House with you? Boo: If you pay rent. Last week we decided to make an impromptu trip to the Reagan Presidential Library. She watched every video and listened to every audio. She stumped a few of the docents on trivia I didn’t know she had studied.
I owe my Juliana a debt of design on this sweater because she almost punched me in the face when I told her I needed to buy some yarn to make something for myself. Exercising some restraint however she walked over to the six drawer chest in the living room, yanked open a drawer, held her hand in display position and said MOM. You. Have. YARN. Anna Maria Horner

How to make an easy Rag Wreath How to make an easy Rag Wreath Rag wreaths are made using strips of cotton fabric. The fabric can be leftovers from past projects, newly purchased fabric or recycled cotton sheeting. Rag wreaths give a room a casual, cozy, shabby feel. They also make nice wall decorations when the fabrics are matched with other fabrics used to decorate the room.

Today I went shopping at Spotlight to buy fabric for the EB Children's clothes swap. We have a limit of $25 to spend on fabric to make an outfit for someone else's child. Unfortunately I found lots of yummy fabric and ended up spending $200 - oops! This first pic is fabric for the EB swap, it took me forever to decide but now that I have a pattern and the fabric I'm really happy with it. This fabric is going to be a new handbag for me, I just love the vintage look it has. Sew Petti Sew Petti

I have a thing for flowers that look like pom poms. Mums, allium, chive blossoms, dahlias – love ‘em! Since fresh flowers aren’t always in the budget, and because I have a brown thumb, I started thinking about what I could do to brighten up our apartment with flowers without actually using flowers. Soon, the idea for some sort of pom pom flower started bouncing around in my head, and this is what I came up with. How to make pom poms?
