papercandy.com has some cool rubber stamps. I like Abbey Someone on this page, and the Skully Head is making me miss The Mr. Skullhead Show. They’re not all Halloween related, there are a lot in the swank category.
I have decided to try the flat beer and epsom salt frosted window idea next — see my notes on this project. I admit it is an excuse to buy some beer. How long should beer sit in order to be relatively flat?

SOAR is moving into a roomier, faster machine, yay recipe source! They have a pages of recipes for special diets but no low-protein listings (my brother has PKU). And take a look at the miscellaneous section, and recipes for crafts and bath products. Nice.
Wholesale Supplies Plus carries a few things in the area of soap making which I have found a bit harder to find:
- massage nubbies soap mold
- Venus of Willendorf soap mold
- mini tubes soap mold
- tiny rubber duckies
- tiny rubber froggies
From Nature With Love also carries a massage bar soap mold [ first column — grumble grumble pop up window grumble grumble ]
So excited! I have committed myself to a few temporary home improvement projects this weekend: rice paper over the kitchen window, pressed crayon meltings in the dining “room” window to block out the naked neighbors below (thanks to Melika for the memory jog!), rigging a smaller version of a shower curtain to stop water from destroying the window in the bathroom altogether (I am beginning to be afraid of it falling out of the side of the building, actually), and making muffins of some sort. Muffins, I realize, hardly count as home improvement in most cases, but considering the lack of muffins in my place lately I think it qualifies. Suspense lies in this question: will any of this actually get done?
oooh cocktail mermaids
Bust magazine commerce:
- Venus of Marmalade Soap shaped like the Venus of Willendorf!
- nice little apron
- Ladies’ Sewing Circle and Terrorist Society T-shirt I wish this one came as a patch I could stick on a bag or something
- hand knit cell phone cozy
- Vinnie’s Tampon Case
But the all-pink tool set seems to be all sold out, darn.
and of course
