Today I am working on making some ATC's for Ten Two Studios Big Five-Oh swap. I have one done already and great ideas for at least two more.
More random artwork from me:

|Good Hair Day|
The pendant is double-sided with a different image on the other side. The two other pieces measure 5" x 7".
On another note, I am sharing my recipe for homemade laundry detergent. It works great and is cheap to make.
You will need:
- 1 cup Borax
- 1 cup Washing Soda (next to the Borax)
- 1 bar grated soap: Ivory or Kirk's Castile, you can use 2/3 bar of Fels Naptha too. DO NOT USE DOVE, Dove is a "beauty bar" and is not a true soap.
Grate the soap by hand or in a food processor. Add the Borax and Washing Soda and mix well. Using a food processor to mix gives the best results. You can add a few drops of essential oil for fragrance (find the oil at a health food store and make sure it is an essential oil, not a synthetic fragrance oil).
Use 1 Tablespoon per load. No need for bleach or fabric softener. For a front loading washer, you only need to use 1 teaspoon. You can make a paste using water and some detergent to put on stains. Use 2 Tablespoons for heavily soiled loads.
This detergent works great and is very economical.
