Sorry I have been missing in action! I have been devoting all of my spare time to car hunting. It isn't going great, though, so I figure it's back to the crafting board! I made some Valentine presents and wanted to post them here for you all to see!
I made something for my son's teachers (yes, there are entirely too many of them!) and my family, but I just realized that if I post it, they will see it! I will put them last, so Aunt Bon, Mom, if you're reading this, don't go to the bottom! Stop at the teepees! :)
I also made my son's Valentine's. I saw these somewhere else, but I honestly can't remember where it was- it's been a month or more ago, and I do a lot of blog hopping! *** UPDATE- I was just blog hopping again and found them- they were at HowDoesShe.com*** Anyway, we made heart crayons for his class and attached them to cards that say "Have a happy Valentine's Day for "crayon" out loud!" Yes, they are a little cheesy, but aren't they cute?! Anyway, here is how we did it!
I got this tray at Crafts 2000 (it is actually for candy or chocolates)
Then we took all the paper off of old crayons and broke them up (I actually had to do this, because I used a knife. It was too hard to break them that small)
Then we put them in the tray (I forgot to take a picture of that step) and put them in the oven at 200* for about 15 minutes. Take them out, let them cool and this is what you get:
Then you can make cute Valentines (I'm going to work a little on these...)
Overall they are really cute, and he could help, so it was a lot of fun!
I also made a gift for my very dear friends who just had a baby. I saw these forever ago while she was pregnant and I knew they would be perfect for her! They are little "pee pee tee pees" (How funny!). I just used a bowl for a circle pattern then cut it in half and sewed up the side to make the teepee then sewed them together. They are for putting over a little boy's pee pee when you are changing their diaper so that they don't spray you! :)
FAMILY STOP READING NOW!
I made sugar scrub for my son's teachers and my family. All you really need is oil and sugar, but I also got Vitamin E oil and essential oils so they smell good.
Here are my supplies:
You just use about 3 parts sugar to 1 part oil and add a little vit E and essential oils. You can really just wing it until you get it how you like it. I made honey almond scented and I made cute stickers to go on the top of my lids. I will try to post them so you can use them. I just printed them on sticker paper and added some ribbon to the bottom of the tin.
I think they turned out really cute, and the scrub makes your hands (or feet or whatever) feel amazingly soft!
I can't figure how to post the .pdf or .pub file here, so if anyone knows how I will try again! If you want the file, I can also email it to you.
