Have any fines? Pay them with food!
No fines? You can still help out by bringing food to support those who need help.

- 1/3 c Olive Oil
- 1/6 c Jojoba Oil
- 1/6 c Avocado Oil
- 1 1/4c Sugar (White)
- Fragrance/Essential Oil
A note on Olive Oil... I prefer Olive Oil as a primary base just because it is mild and quite moisturizing. I originally started soapmaking with Olive Oil and am still partial to it today. Now, that is not to say there aren't other oils you can use.
Now a note on preservatives... we didn't add a preservative to the scrub at PS. When discussing the issue of preservatives with my husband, it is his understanding that a lot of water would have to penetrate the scrub in order to grow any "fuzzies" due to the nature of the sugar. I have had my test scrub I did for this class in my shower since last September and so far so good.
Interested in making your own now? Check out Bramble Berry. They have a host of fun ingredients in small and large sizes.
In closing, I would like to thank you all for allowing me to demonstrate and put together November's craft. I hope you had fun and learned something new!!
If you have any questions, you may always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.S. On a side note, I am overwhelmed with the support from this wonderful group regarding my upcoming surgery. I really can't possibly tell you how much your support means to me and my family. Thank you.

Using a standard notebook with front pocket (one that can fit into a diaper bag/is easy to grab-and-go/etc) designate the following areas:
- incoming mail and items you need to turn-and-burn that week
- a couple thank you cards with stamped envelopes
- notepad/daily list spiral
- Section 1: Monthly calendars (I print mine from my Outlook program every few months -- whatever wasn't scheduled at printing, I simply add with pen/pencil)
- Section 2: Kid Info
- Copy of Certificate of Live Birth (I need these in my notebook for travel reasons; airlines, etc. request copies for children)
- A simple Medical Record Table on an 8.5 x 11 Sheet for each of my kids (Date, Height, Weight, Vaccine, Misc.)
- Section 3: Phone Lists with most frequently used lists in the front (I have Mom's Groups, Neighborhood, Preschool, Church, Our official contact list -- Christmas card/Business Peeps, and House -- business cards of anyone who has worked on our house in any capacity stapled to paper, and then just old contact lists that I use infrequently but sometimes still need to reference)

60 cent ice cream cones from 11am - 3pm
Free balloons for kids
Sounds like it could be a nice (and cheap) treat for kids and moms. Unfortunately my kids nap during those times, but I thought I'd pass it along.

I'm currently using Windows Movie Maker which is terrible with Windows Vista. It is constantly freezing up. So I want to purchase a different program, but have no idea what to get. Do you know of a program that is easy to use and not too expensive?

Yes, according to recent research, the fact that our young children can throw tantrums around us is a sign that they trust us and can be completely authentic with us.
. . . if you want to read up on this and other early-childhood research/info, visit www.babycenter.com.
PS -- thanks for the initial feedback my sweet comrades and 'cheers'!
