How to make doily covered soaps...

If you are a purist…power to you. Hook yourself some little caps for soap. I confess I find the gifting of handmade items something of a challenge. It’s one thing to give something you’ve painstakingly hooked, or stitched, or knitted, or sewn to someone else who makes things & appreciates them. It’s quite another to gift the same items to folk who’ve no idea of the time involved.

We had our last well baby visit earlier today and I managed to get this thing finished with time to spare! I started on it two days ago and left it out on my work bench so that I could steal a moment here and there to stitch those doilies together. Here's how it went down.

How To: Make Bath Bombs

It is like taking a bath in champagne, only without the show tunes and chorus boys. They are fairly simple to make, keeping in mind that the strangest things can make a batch go weird; humidity, room temperature, oil viscosity, the moon rising in the seventh house of Aquarius . . . they are a mysterious wonder.For this recipe, I am using ingredients that are pretty common, or easy to find in most areas.

Craft - gardening. DIY: Upholstered Nailhead Trim Headboard. For some time, I'd had my eye on the Modern Velvet Headboard ($280) from Urban Outfitters, but I simply couldn't bring myself to spend $315, including shipping, on the thing.

DIY: Upholstered Nailhead Trim Headboard

Handmade days - jeweled tee tutorial. I've been eyeing the tees at j.crew for weeks now, trying to decide if i can spend $50 on a grey t-shirt. in addition to that, i have the "i could make that" problem; i see something i really like, but seems too expensive & shrug it off saying that if i wanted it i could fashion it for myself. this time, i decided to make it happen. the result is a cozy tee with a little bit of sparkle, perfect for a casual, put together day. i thought for a while on color scheme & thought that i would get most wear out of something that was a monotone pallette. i considered doing something pink/beige with gold sequins & beading, but ended up using a heather grey tee with grey tule, silver sequins & both silver & white beads. the j.crew tees run between $40 & $50, this project will cost you around $15-20. i chose a tissue tee from h&m, costing around $7.50; my other supplies ran about $8.
