"She's Crafty...

...and she's just my type." (Beastie Boys)

So yeah, I have been making some crafts. Several many kinds of crafts. I took photos so that you'd be forced to look at them.

First up is the soap, and it's sappy soap, at that. I made this for myself for Valentine's Day, thank you. There are two separate kinds here. One has safflower oil and glycerin in it, that's the pink. The other is my standard oatmeal, soy milk and honey. I had just run out, and I use that for exfoliating. The other is more of a sealer soap, and not for every day use. So I got these heart-shaped molds and I had to try them out...



I'm a dork.

Okay moving on, I had some left over red potatoes that are dead but still firm, as potatoes often are when left in the fridge for too long. I decided that I would make stamps out of them to use on the postcards. These are just the preliminary tester stamps, as I still have two more old potatoes. I used to make wrapping paper like this, and so it's more of a carry-over from my youth. One of these is a tree and the other is just an egg-like circular shape...







Next we have a box that I decorated for someone. I think it turned out super cool, and it's made from recycled magazine paper.





I love the junks!
