Soap Making

Every once in a while, my mom and I get together and make soap using the cold process method. It’s very precise and would definitely be frustrating if I attempted it by myself, but I love making the soap as a team. If you’re not up to the complication and the chemicals, there is so much you can do with melt-and-pour soaps! Here are some great ideas.

I don’t know what it is about me, but I can’t be in a room that doesn’t have a clock. I can totally forget about it and get lost in whatever I’m doing if it’s there, but when I’m curious about the time, it’s all-consuming.

Quick Knits

Check out our Craft Trends board on Pinterest!

I’m a pretty avid knitter, but I almost exclusively knit sweaters. Sometimes among the slew of never ending collars or that dreaded second sleeve (the feeling of accomplishment after finishing the first one never lasts long), I need to just finish a project. Whether it’s chunky yarn, or a small result, I sometimes need to remember how great it is to finish a project. Here are some of my favorite quick knits.

Anything for babies is guaranteed to be finished quickly and look adorable. The color change in these cute booties keeps the pattern interesting, but not so interesting you won’t finish in a couple of hours.
