No post today...look for something tomorrow!

It's been a whirlwind week! I made candles with the pregnant and parenting teens on Thursday morning, and chocolate, sushi shaped beeswax candles, Shrinky Dinks, and Star Wars related snowflakes on Thursday night at the Christmas Extravaganza! Today we're at girls only Rock Band (and Dance Central 2) at the library, so I haven't had time to write a post. Look for something tomorrow!

When you contribute to our groups by buying the Formulating & Creating Lotions and Creams, Lotion Making 101Back to Basics, or Hair Care: Shampoos & Conditioners e-books, you contribute to four different programs at three different locations (Chilliwack and Yarrow libraries, and the Ed Centre alternative school). For more information on our groups and what we do, please click here

If you've never made Shrinky Dinks, you need to try them! They are incredibly awesome and you can make all kinds of jewellery with them. The picture you see above is of one of the kids making Pokemon and Mario jewellery with some sushi thrown in! They make awesome presents for your kids to make and give to their friends! (Click here for the jewellery making handout!) Get a few sets of earrings, some 5 to 6 mm jump rings, and a package of Shrinky Dinks from somewhere like Michael's or Jo-Ann's. I like the frosted ones - 10 for $8 to $10, but use the coupon! We can get enough out of half a sheet to make an entire charm bracelet. I know your kids are out of school this week - spend $20 on all the supplies and let them go nuts making them! (If you need any ideas for pictures, I have tons of handouts. Just write to me at and I can send you tons of ideas!)
