Scrabble Tile Necklaces

I've been working on some awesome scrabble tile necklaces lately!  It will be a bit before I get them listed, but I thought I'd give you all a sneak peek!

I've made a few with scrapbook paper and I've been doing a bunch with different maps of different places.  I'm still working on getting my backlog of finished items listed, and these new ones are near the bottom of the list but soon!  Feel free to email me if you want a custom necklace before I start listing!

In planning for another program at work (DIY Soap and Candles) I wound up spending way too much money deciding I'd like to make my own soap and candles.  Because OF COURSE I need another craft!

I finally got around to making the soap!

Okay so not very impressive.  I picked a really simple rectangle mold from amazon and only used a light green coloring, but I'm thrilled!  It was so ridiculously easy I can't believe I haven't done it before!

I used basic melt and pour soaps.  I mixed about half and half a honey soap base and a shea butter soap base (should be super good for dry winter skin!).  I added a little tea tree oil and a scent called Spiced Apple Cider.  It smells just like fall and I can't wait for my dove soap to get used up so we can try it out!

If your looking to try I got the soap, tea tree oil, scent and color from and I'll be going back to buy more soon I'm sure.

I love doing these sorts of projects.  And hopefully I'll get better at the soap making and can bust some out for Christmas gifts this year.

Next up on my crafty/frugal/eco-friendly list of stuff to try:

-shaving soap
-dryer balls
-ice melter
-cloth paper towels
-wheat thins

I'm sure you'll see more of these in the coming weeks.
