Along with the two soaps I made this weekend, I also got 6 batches of mondo bath bombs done for my sister’s upcoming birthday. Last weekend I made one more, so that is a total of 7 batches (at 7 to 8 bombs each) for a grand total of 51 bath bombs! If that is not a happy birthday, then I don’t know what is!
To be fair though, she doesn’t get to keep all of them. She has two daughters and three grand-daughters to share with. She gets a lot of enjoyment, though, from being the one who is the “keeper of the bath bomb stash”. Continue reading “It’s beginning to look a lot like “birthday””
Have you ever had one of those weekends when everything you did just turned out 100% perfect, or even better than you imagined? Well, I didn’t have one of those, but it was almost that! I only had one thing that didn’t turn out to my liking. All the rest of them met or exceeded my expectations!
I did a lot of things this weekend; three batches of soap, two lotions and bath bombs. I was quite busy, but now that it’s over, and I put all my stuff away, I feel like I got some good recreation time in.
So let’s start out with what didn’t turn out like I expected and go from there (we’ll get that one out-of-the-way). 🙂 Continue reading “Five Outta Six Ain’t Bad”
Inspired by a recent post by SoapQueen (See here for her Irridescent Pearl Bath Bombs), and knowing I have a visit soon with my sister and her daughters, I got the brilliant (although not terribly original) idea to make “mermaid eggs”.
My niece recently took her young family to Florida. One of the highlights of their trip was that she hired a “real-live-mermaid” to frolic at the ocean with the little girls. Thinking back to when I was a little girl, I would have absolutely loved this, and it would have been a memory I would have carried with me through my whole life.

It was my husband’s birthday this weekend. As such, I didn’t get as much done as I do most weekends, but it is also important to spend time with those that you love. Luckily, my husband is an artist and during some of the time he spent with me, we worked together on photographing my products. 🙂 Continue reading “More progress and some revisits”
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.

Now that my new camera is up and running, I am getting started with remaking some of my products for my book. This weekend I got 2 recipes re-made (out of a total of about 55 recipes, so I have a long way to go yet). Continue reading “Cucumber Melon Bath Bombs & Strawberry Patch Bubble Bombs”
