No sew cafe curtains

I love bargains and I hate above all else paying full price for anything.  I have been on the hunt for some cute cafe curtains for the window above the kitchen sink.  The pre-made curtains are always expensive (at least to me) and kind of cheesy.  I am a young hip modern gal I should have young hip modern curtains.  As I was tooling around Target today it came to me:
What you need for this awesomness:
1 tension rod: $3.78
2 sets of clip rings: $9.78
2 fabric napkins in a cute design: $4.98

Total for the project: $18.54

The best part about this set up is that I can easily change the curtains as I find new ones, get sick of the old ones, or want to do something seasonal.  Also, since these are made of cotton they are washable.  So what do you think?  I ❤ them!


Fall S.O.A.P. Panel

We all know I am a huge Bramble Berry fan.  It was actually their site that prompted me to try making soap for Christmas gifts a few years ago.  Thanks to them I can officially say my name is Amber and I am 100% addicted to soap making.  This little blog post is my entry for the fall S.O.A.P. panel.  I was lucky enough to get on the spring panel earlier this year, but I have grown so much in my soap making that I would love to be chosen again to try it with my new-found skills.  I have lately been obsessed with HP (hot process) soap making.  I do love it and its simple beauty.  I also am really into making lotions.  If chosen these are the two techniques I would focus on.  Here’s a little glimpse into my obsession:
Sadly, that’s not even all of it.  HAHA.  I am sure my fellow soap makers get it.  One thing I would like to do is at the end of the process I would like to sell all the items that are made.  I would like to donate 10% of the sales to my favorite foundation Souls for Soles where $1.00 = 1 pair of shoes for those in need.  So please pick me if you would.  It would be fun for me and it would also help a good cause.
