Roses,
glad you got the "Eat at Mom's" breastfeeding cards I rubberstamped for you.

Missgrl,
not sure what's wrong with my email address. I'll come back to this board to let you know when I receive your craft.

I can't wait for the next craft circle!!!
Will another one be started just after the New Year?
Next time I'll have to send to someone who has a baby girl because I want to sew a pillowcase dress. Today I just got directions on how to make a dress out of a pillowcase (from Martha Stewart Baby magazine) ~ have any of you sewed an baby dress out of a pillowcase before?

Thanks again!

Oh Saganaga------

I want to truly apologize for the horrible looking wrapping I did! I tried to be clever and ship it in the painted jar......luckily my dh didn't ship it b/c he had it in the car and it leaked everywhere....the car smells wonderful though LOL!
I'm not used to shipping liquids....what a dummy I was!

so I had to come up with another way to ship it. My dh came up with the other jar with a screw lid and tape it all up! I know it looked ugly, but at least it got there without leaking! I hope it was easy to transfer into the other jar!


Roses- it is a super easy recipe.....combine sugar or sea salt
with sweet almond oil and an
essential oil of your choice
(is use lavender oil)
I also prefer sugar b/c salt makes any cuts or nicks you have on your legs burn!--even though i believe salt has some healing quailites!
A friend got me some of this scrub from a store and it was awesome!!!! But it had mineral oil, petroleum and some other forgein ingrediants that I don't like to use. So I got to thinking......this could be made easily with only simple ingrediants!
I can't wait to get my surprise!!!!!

What kind of consistency is the miracle scrub meant to be when it's done?

Roses-
I got your craft today!!!!!

I can't tell you how wonderful my stuff is!!!!!! I envy anyone that can sew!
The beanbags are super! I opened it after ds's went to bed. I can't wait until he sees them in the morning!

After i wash the tub (share it with kids....LOL) I'll jump in with my bath bomb. Did you use the recipe that is on this forum? I want to try to make one.

And you won't believe this.....but I was looking for a first aid sewing kit just this morning and couldn't find one! It is perfect!

And ummmmmmm the candle holders ummmmmmmm~~it is about 10:30 p.m. here and me and dh are about to go see how they light up our room---if you know what I mean!.

thank you so much!!

Roses Rules

Missgrl,

I so glad that you liked everything!!!! But, I am so bummed that you got it the day after Christmas! I wanted it to get there before hand. I had a lot of fun making everything. I made a bunch of the little sewing kits to give to the dds teachers, the girls I work p/t with and busdriver.

Leafylady and Onehipmomma~~~~
Sorry I didn't respond to the MIricle scrub questions....I don't know how I missed this!!!!:

As for the amounts...I look at the jar I'm putting it in. I fill it about 3/4 with sugar or seasalt. Then I just pour in my almond oil (a good amount) and stir then add more and stir and so forth until it is absorbed completely into the sugar and has about 1/4 inch oil layer on top. Then I add my essential oil and stir....and that amount depends on what you like.

So when you scoop it out you should be getting mostly sugar mixed with oil. but there should always be that layer of oil on top of the sugar in the jar. If not, the sugar will dry out and be yucky....just add more oil anytime you see that happening.
