With every weekend that passes, I get a few more things made, and another step closer to completing my next book. It feels like it is taking forever (at a pace of a few things per weekend), but it is only because that next book is going to have so many recipes in it.
I think I am about 1/2 of the way done now, so I still have many more weekends of
work fun ahead of me. Since I don’t have any vacation from my day job coming up until Memorial Day (June), I will have to just keep picking away with making a few things per week.
This weekend I had so much fun making beard conditioning butter, speckled bath bombs, solid perfumes, piped bath truffles, gel air freshener, and bronzing body butter. I always enjoy the process of making things, but having to concentrate on getting good pictures of the “how to” process is a little more work. Regardless, it was still a lot of fun. I don’t know about you, but I get so much satisfaction from creating practical things. When they are both beautiful and practical, that is even more of a bonus!
The recipes and instructions for all these (and more) will be in my book — once I am done making all the recipes, getting good pictures of them, and putting the finishing touches on the book content. I estimate that will be around June or July this year (I might be a little bit ambitious with that estimate, as currently there are over 50 recipes and I keep coming up with more).

I hope you enjoyed this little pictorial recap of my weekend. I hope your weekend was at least as much fun as this. I wish you all a great week ahead!
