And, hello new follower! Glad you joined my family and hope to see more of you! You're always welcome!
I'm finally back from my MP soap session with my girlfriend. I really don't think she felt up to doing any crafting or soapmaking today though; she didn't even help me much. Nor did I do very well. It took me 3 measuring cups of melted soap -- I kept burning it -- and 5 melted/distorted molds before I made a decent batch which I ended up having to bring home in a plastic shoe box. During the time I was messing up all this melt and pour stuff I'd purchased for her to help me -- she sat there watching television!!! As for her handmade soap making experience, she is just not a "from scratch" soap maker and decided to leave in the middle of the process leaving me to complete the batch on my own -- the batch I didn't want to do in the first place!!! She wouldn't even attempt to finish her first ( and probably last) lesson! She said it was too hard; it really isn't, she just wasn't interested. Anway, I'm going to try re-melting, re-molding, and then try to turn what I have into something "reasonably" pretty or I'll just use it to make liquid soap. As far as her batch of handmade soap... well, she wants me to come over once it cures to either mold or cut the bars! She's unbelievable!!! I love her but I'm not liking her at all very much right now, and she could never-ever again convince me to do any soapmaking with her!!! She won't like me posting this but I really don't care!!!
However, fortunately, I do have a project to share. I completed this card last night for Robyn's birthday challenge "Love Is In The Air":
I thought it would be fun to add something to the inside too:
I used my Cuttlebug for the embossed background, lots of Stickles; the victorian lady image I found on the internet, the flower stickers are Mrs. Grossman, and the stamp is one I purchased years ago at Michael's. Pink ribbon and a pink rhinestone around the neck on the image completed the card.
I know you aren't accustomed to me doing projects for challenges but (another resolution) I'm going to try to do better this year at joining in and participating in more blog activities. All I need to do is fine some extra time!!! LOL!!!
Well, that's it for now. I'll be back!
