One of the recipes on the Domino site actually called for vegetable oil. Since almond oil is so expensive, I was thinking about mixing the two. The scrub that I made had cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, so it already smelled really good!

I used my Holiday Treasures paper, fire and ice brads, and ribbon from SU to decorate these little baby food jars.

Thanks! You made my day!
Today may be the perfect day to make another batch. I can give it to all of the ladies I work with (if we have school next week........we are getting a lot of snow!).

Well, here it is nearly May and I'm thinking about Christmas. Why? Well, I can't seem to get it together when I begin in fall or even late summer. Maybe I'm silly, but I'd really like to be prepared this year. Not because I'm neurotic, but because I always have plans to surprise my friends with neat hand-crafted gifts (because I love and care for them), and I never get it together in time. I really nee help! So, I thought if I started this early I'd have a chance to do it right!

Wow, Chris! It's like you read my mind or something! I was seriously just thinking last night that we're nearly halfway to Christmas again! Only a week away from May, which means only 7 months til December! So glad I'm subbing on this thread....

If you had asked me 3-4 months ago about what I was making for Christmas presents this year, I would have had no problem listing what was already finished and what other items I was creating - mostly sewing, crochet or knit items. And then I discovered paper craftss and stamaing - well I am sure you know what happened.

I fill 9 stockings for family members and give lots sof little rememberance gifts - about 100 as well as gifts for my soccer team and preschool students. So I am going to spend some time jotting down my other creations and then my new crafting ideas - and I shall return!!

Just remembered a few years ago for our special education staff -around 20 people - I created a cookbook featuring rosemary and gave that along with a rosemary plant. Loved how my preschool classroom smelled for that luncheon!!
Love the ideas already shared and cannot wait for more!!

Then I used my "Totally Tool" stamp set from SU and decorated them. No ribbons mind you They are perfect for guys, they can hang them on the handle of their tool box, or have them in the glove compartment etc. Because lets face it, guys always need to write a note, (or write measurements, etc) and rarely have a place to write it!!

Do you have a picture - I would love to make these for my church's Christmas Bazaar - they have a kids shopping room, and they are always desperate for masculine item that can be sold really cheap. How do you attach the post it note to the keychain?

Diane, thanks so much for the great idea for spice boxes. I've saved your blog to my favorites, too. Great stuff there.

Would you be able to share the dimensions of the little box you made for the spices? I've made boxes similar to hold A2 (4-1/4 x 5-1/2) cards, so I understand the basic construction method. Just need the size and score dimensions.

Hi. The sizes for my Schwartz spice boxes are as follows.

Base, 21cm x18cm. Score at 4.5 cm all around.
Lid 21.3cm x 18.3 cm. Score at 4.5cm all around.

After much trial and error I find with all boxes the lid will fit perfectly if it is cut 3mm larger than the base.

When I make a box for something I lay it on paper, draw around it then fold the paper up around the item to see how high i need the sides to be. EG, width of box is 9cm + 4.5 + 4.5 for the sides =18cm and length is 12cm + 4.5 + 4.5 = 21cm. Dont forget to add 3mm for lids or you'll end up with loads of half boxes like me, lol.

Hope this helps. Di.x

Thank you so much for the measurements and info. I was able to download the darling little chef, and sentiment, too. Thanks for the great link to get those. I have 5 grown kids and spouses that will receive cute little Spice Boxes in their Christmas stockings thanks to you! What a wonderful resource that website is.

You're welcome. Keep an eye on my blog as I will from now be obsessed with finding things to make boxes and bags for Chistmas gifts. Every year we get the same old Christmas gift sets prepackaged in the shops. We are all blessed with the ability to take the elements and make our own packaging.

Us peeps in UK have to start early as it will soon begin to get dark mid afternoon. Matching colours is a nightmare. I try to colour all my Christmas images through the summer so all i need to do is assemble.Last year I took no heed of this and ended up having to buy some cards!!!

Hooray for those who already are thinking of Christmas. I'm just trying to get through the last days of summer here and getting kids ready for the new school year (which starts here on August 24). My focus is on what all I have to get through tomorrow!

I used my Crop A Dile II to punch the holes. Then stuck the book rings through the hole. Here is a copy of them:
Gina's Stamping Creations: Craft Fair - Masculine Post It Note Holders

It was a great way to use up some of my brown patterened paper too!

Oh I also made some on picture frames. We sold quite a few of these too:


Gina's Stamping Creations: Craft Sale - Post it note holders

I got the frames from Walmart. One style was $0.80 and one was $1.00 each. But not all of the Walmarts had them priced the same. Also they were hard to find, so I ended up doing Site-to-store shipping.

Very cute and clever, Diane. That canister looks like the same kind that Pringles potato chips come in, too.

love this thread. Going to sit down with a cup of tea tomorrow and make a list. I have taken most of the summer off from crafting. Looking forward to getting back to it now. TFS.

Haven't a clue, I'm still in Summer mode! I can't get into Christmas until after Thanksgiving. And holiday/Christmas stuff is going to start showing up in the stores as soon as school starts and the back-to-school stuff is taken down.
It's all morphed together these days, I miss the proper Thanksgiving era we used to have, it's now all about stores getting the Christmas sales and making money.

Just a suggestion for those of you make card sets for folks-- i add some postage stamps as well, especially for people who have a hard time getting out.

Great reminder about the postage stamps! Ask at the counter to see the commemorative stamps. They have some wonderful ones at my post office which are the Forever stamps, so the stamps are good even if postage goes up.

I got some recently with a picture of "Owney, the Postal Dog" which are perfect for pet lovers. There is a cute story on the back of the stamp sheet.

"Owney was a terrier mix who showed up at the Post Office in Albany NY in the late 1880's, where clerks took a liking to him and named him Owney. Fond of riding in postal wagons, Owney followed mailbags onto trains, where Railway Mail Service employees considered him their good luck charm.

As Owney traveled the country, clerks affixed medals and tags to his collar to document his travels, and Postmaster General John Wanamaker gave him a special dog-sized jacket to help him display them all. Owney later toured the world by steamer and became an icon of American postal lore.

His adventures highlight the historical importance of the Railway Mail service, and today he enjoys a place of honor at the Smithsonian Institution's National Postal Museum in Washington DC."

I made copies of the story and have been including it in cards with the stamps for my pet loving friends.

What a great idea. I have to admit - I HAVE those stamps and have used them. . . but never read the story. Thanks!

Thanks for reading! I know some people don't have patience for things like that, but I thought it was worth sharing. The stamps are cute, too.

I got some recently with a picture of "Owney, the Postal Dog" which are perfect for pet lovers. There is a cute story on the back of the stamp sheet.

"Owney was a terrier mix who showed up at the Post Office in Albany NY in the late 1880's, where clerks took a liking to him and named him Owney. Fond of riding in postal wagons, Owney followed mailbags onto trains, where Railway Mail Service employees considered him their good luck charm.

I just saw these stamps for the first time last week, Bugga. I love them! I had never heard the story of Owney -- and Albany NY is my hometown!

Silly question regarding Denise's handcream -
how far in advance do you ladies make it, and
how long does it last for?
