Felted soap and more


Ahhh the bamboo....I spin on it when I get time and this is what I got so far. After it falling off my spindle and spending over an hour to get it would into this ball I am gonna spin up some wool for a more realxing spin then ply these two together and see what I get. I dont know how many yards is here I know its not much though...oh its so shiny and soft....yum.







Tyler has been wanting to felt soap ever since Minde sent me hers. So i led Tyler step by step last night thru the dying process with kool aid so he could make a soap as a special request from Beautifulsoaps who has some really exotic scents you should check her out for real. But the Lovely miss Heather wanted a nice bar of felted Basil And Lime soap so Tyler hooked her up right!







This is the finished soap after its dried and stuff. Tyler is here swinging the soap in a piece of pantyhose LOL He liked that part a little too much...please note the sweet baby in the backgroun hard at work on hacking into NASA computers from our laptop....




In other exciting news, I have been named the Marketing Committee leader of my street team YAY! So I am gonna have to market the crap out of us and I think I am pretty good at pimping art LOL So please dont forget about the contest going on right now all you have to do to win is leave a comment, and next month the prize will be something from me, I am still trying to figure out what to offer...I may offer some legwarmers and soap I am not quite sure yet...So wish me luck in my new job, I have never been the leader of anything except my own imagination so this should be fun...I am already demanding people email me coffee and donuts and assigning slave jobs hehehehe

that is soooo cool that he wanted to learn how to do the felted soap. how old is tyler again? it seems like there arent too many boys nowadays wanting to do anything crafty cause they think its girly or some crap. but my little bro always wanted to have his hands right in whatever i was craftin so i encouraged him to :0) i love that you do the same for tyler.

Rachel YES CONFIRMED for saturday And any time after 11 Am is good cause its hard as hell to get out of the house before noon with a baby...I am sure you remember! LOL

PREN! Thank you so much for the great compliment! Tyler is 11 now and he really dont care if a craft is girly or not he has tried to crochet and he has spun some yarn too, that kid just likes making stuff. You should see this big thingy he made for his Bakugan...its like a tournament mat but its handmade. He is really good at this stuff. I like it he will make something he needs before whining to me to buy it for him. He also made some tech deck skateboard ramps out of old boxes...and ALL of my packing tape! LOL He did good though they worked great he had a whole skatepark built on the kitchen floor one night just for his little tech decks LOL
