Creating Perfume...

I need a new knitting project...
I have not run out of yarn, but I don't have the correct needles
and yarn for the next project I would like to work on.

A Stitch In Time 
is closed today, and that created a very sad situation for me.

I muddled through my sadness and decided to make perfume.
I am still receiving the 
Darby Smart
once per month craft kits, last month was creating perfume.
Not my favorite thing, but to resolve my need to create something,

 I decided to give it a try.

 The ingredient line-up...everything was included.

 I got a manicure today and I wanted to show off my new nails.

There was a lot of mixing and blending,

 it was fun!!

 I decided to paint the bottles with the items left over from the first
Darby Smart Kit they sent me.
You can read all about that project here.

I went with a floral scent and it smells awesome!!

I am really enjoying this subscription so far...
the next kit has arrived and we will be making candles.
Right up my alley!!

  1. Hello Debbie, you are so creative. Lavender would be a favorite of mine. But, I can not wear perfume because of allergies. I love the cute paintings on the bottles. The candle making sounds like fun. Enjoy your day!

  2. I find myself too busy with weeding, gardening and weed whacking, let alone housework to even have time for creativity such as this. Of course, I suppose if I gave up my three workouts at the gym and Tai Chi, I could squeeze it in. But then again, I can just read your post and smell the aroma!!...:)JP

  3. Your creative heart keeps on moving forward, no matter what!

  4. It must be fun to have these crafts coming each month. Such a great way to try so many different things. Your little bottles look lovely painted and so do your nails!

  5. OMG! i saw your title and laughed. then i saw your manicure show-off and laughed again. i did like your use of the stencils and paint on the bottles. oh, you're such a girlie girl!! :)

  6. What fun!! You get so many cute things from that place. You have learned so many fun things. I hope you get to knit today.

  7. Now Debbie it is a shame we cannot smell your new perfume. I have made candles with the children when they were young so you should enjoy that.

  8. Anymore, I stay clear of perfume -- it makes me sneeze. Yours looks great, and I'm sure you had fun with the project.

  9. You make the most amazing things, Debbie. I always enjoy seeing which
    project you're working on! :)


  10. I am very picky about my perfumes but I bet you created a scent that I would just love & the reason I say this is because you have good taste. I love how you decorated the bottles also love your manicure. Can't wait to see your candle making project.

    1. I don't usually wear perfume, but this came out light and fresh!!

  11. You are having a lot of fun with those kits! A good way to decide on which crafts really speak to you without buying a bunch of supplies you won't use after the first time. Cool idea. I might just investigate that a... As a gift for my daughter who is talented. Not for myself. I'm old enuff to know my limitations ))))

  12. Gosh, I love how you have kits that come. I don't think I have ever thought of making my own perfume; sweet.
    I hope you come up with a great knitting project because I am so impressed with your work.
    By the way, I love your nails.
    Keep on enjoying your moments with crafts; you are good at it.
    Blessings and hugs!

  13. Personally, I like eau de lumberyard, and eau de mow (as in lawn), and eau de line dried laundry.
    ;) m & jb who currently likes eau de toad

  14. How frustrating to be in between knitting projects! I hope you favourite yarn store is open tomorrow!

  15. You are so much fun! I am going back to see the other project now and may look into getting these kits myself!!

  16. I have often thought about trying one of those craft sites that send you a different type of crafting each month and then I ask myself do you really need to start liking another craft. That is so neat and I like how you put your own touch on the bottles to personalize them!

  17. The bottles were beautiful !!

  18. Okay, this is simply the neatest thing to do! I love that you can make your own scent and then you get to decorate the bottle...too much fun, my friend :) Thanks for sharing this with Roses of Inspiration {{smiles}} Hugs!

  19. Such a fun thing - a little adventure each month! Pretty painting on the bottles!
