What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than making things for someone you love? That is just what I did today. On Sunday afternoon’s docket… Len’s Dry Feeling Lotion!
While that was cooling, I took some photographs, and wrapped up my last couple batches of bath bombs.
Then I found another spare hour somewhere, and also made a batch of Island Escape lotion for my niece, Sheri. I don’t have it done yet, so I will have to post those pictures tonight or tomorrow.

FINALLY it’s vacation again. It’s been a long, busy few months since I’ve had one. I couldn’t wait to get a head start on this, my first night of vacation!
Since I have been knitting and not making bath/body/soap for a while, I have no gifts made up yet for my sister’s birthday in August. Luckily I still have a little time before then, so I am going to use a large part of this vacation to play “catch-up” and get a good start on all the things I want to make for her (and my nieces).

For the past 2 weekends, I have been busy getting tons of bath bombs made for Christmas giving. When I added up my list of recipients and figured out how many bath bombs they were each getting, it came to slightly over 100.
That frightened me a little bit because that is a LOT of bath bombs (for me to make) and Christmas is coming soon! So I got busy and attacked the task head-on. Continue reading “Christmas Bath Bomb Round-Up”
Christmas is fast approaching. It will be here before we know it! This year, I am gifting many bath bombs, lotions and a few soaps.
When I add up the number of bath bombs I need for my gifting list, it comes to about 108. That is a LOT of bath bombs. I decided to get an early start and get these done so I wouldn’t be in a rush as the holiday approaches. This weekend I got 4 batches done, for a total of about 45 — so almost half way there!

I wasn’t feeling terribly motivated or organized this weekend, so I just kind of made it up as I went along . I started out with no plan at all, but ended up making a few cute things to share today.
Friday night I thought I would start out with something very simple so I opted for some melt and pour soaps — but not just “any” melt and pour soaps. These are for the kids for Halloween.
Then Saturday, I felt like sewing. I recently bought some new makeup and found that my makeup is all over the place, floating around in my bathroom drawer. So I sewed myself some cosmetic bags to organize them.
Today, despite my pitifully inadequate bathtub — I felt like taking a soaking bath. Since I have no bath bombs of my own, I made some just for me.
