A Thing a Day On Vacation – Vacation’s Over Round-up

As every vacation does, this one went by far to quickly.  I can’t believe it’s been a week already, but when I look back at all I accomplished in that week, I feel like I spent my time well.

This post is a round-up of all the things I made all week – this time with much better pictures. 🙂

A Thing a Day on Vacation – The “what if” game

As I suspected, dinner brought on new ideas for what I should do this evening.  The requirements were:  1)  No pressure.  2) Quick and Easy.   3) Able to complete in 3 hours.

So I waved my magic wand and transformed some chemicals and organic ingredients into  a couple of “last thing on vacation” treats.

Day 3 Part 2 – Sunday Evening

Ok, I did say “a” thing a day on vacation right?  I am such a rule breaker!   To be fair though, the things I made this evening were all relatively quick and easy, so they should only count as one thing.

Let the Good Times Roll!

I’ve been at it again, messing up my kitchen, filling my house with fragrances, and overflowing my dining room table with finished products!   I wouldn’t change a thing about it though — I am having so much fun!

This weekend I managed to make 5 things:  Telangyn Peptide Lotion, Gladback Collagen Facial Serum Spray, Oatmeal Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter, Facial Clay Masks, and Body Balms.

I think I am done now with making everything for my sister’s birthday visit, but I keep thinking of more things to make.  Good thing there is only one more weekend left before I see her because I am running out of room!

Vacation is over, but it was a productive one!

As I post this, I am aware that most people post vacation photos of their family on the beach, or at Disneyland.   My vacation photos are composed of my accomplishments and creations instead.   I don’t think this is strange at all.  When I was younger I travelled a lot, but now that I am older, I enjoy staying at home and making things instead.  We are where we are at in life, I guess, and my happy place is at home.
