Makin' more bunnies

I know Easter is still a bit away but I was anxious to make a few more bunnies. They are so cute and pretty easy to make. This is one I have been working on the past few days. I love all the possible color combos .I got the free pattern here.

I will share when I have some more made up.

Crochet Blanket update

Here are three more of the blankets I have been working on.

This is a blanket for Cade. He likes purple so purple he gets.

 This blanket is the scrappy one, kinda scrappy, I have had to go buy yarns for it. I do like all that color.

Here is the baby blanket. I sure hope they like it, I know it will be a surprise.

Here they are all together.

Enjoy your week :)

Snake in progress

Yep, I am still working on the "snake" crochet blanket. I did really good working on it for the first while (last winter), then summer came and it was way to hot to want to crochet. So i didn't even pick it up to work on until yesterday. I have been trying to get the baby blanket done. It needs to be ready in March.

So here are so pic's of the "snake".

Candy Cane Bath Salts

This year for Christmas I wanted to make a little something different. The past few years I made my friends braided scarfs or a warm cowl, something out of yarn. So I decided on making them some yummy bath salts. I looked around the internet to find a recipe.

First I found these glass jars at the dollar store. They are plain, with no writing or anything on them.

Next I got the Epsom salts at Walmart.

Then at Winco I got the Sea Salt. Winco has it in their bulk area, and it is sooooooo much cheaper than buying it in the regular salt container.

This is the recipe i used.

Next i got the glycerin & peppermint essential oils together.

I mixed the Epsom salt, sea salt, glycerin & peppermint  together. I poured half of the mixture into my mixing bowl, to be colored red and left the rest.

 I added several drops of the red coloring and mixed it up. It took awhile to get it all mixed in, even then I thought I would try a little reddish soap colorant I had on hand. 

I think it helped using the other color.

I started layering the colors.

Almost done :)

It needed a little ribbon, a candy cane and a tag. Now it's ready for gift giving
The recipe made 4 of these jars and 1 quart jar full.

Hubby's co-worker gift 2013

I know I am a little late in posting this... oops. This is what I decided to make for Craig's Christmas gifts this year. The Scored Hershey's Christmas Tree. Brenda is the one who created this and has a very nice & detailed tutorial over on her blog.

Here are my finished pictures of the trees.

I think they turned out nice. They were super fun to make. The tutorial helps a lot, so I would definitely follow along with that.

Enjoy you day,
