Darkness and Light

This week has been so busy.  Next week is going to be even worse!

Our project at work is getting ready to execute one of the major phases, so, although I am scheduled to be on vacation next week, that may not get to happen.  It’s still up in the air until a few key meetings occur this week so I can find out.

IF I do get to take vacation, I have had little time to prepare for any fun-time.  It is still far to hot here to order any soap or lotion making supplies, so it doesn’t look like much of that will be happening this maybe-vacation.    Next time I need to plan far ahead and stock up in April (before it gets too hot out).   I thought I had more time, but it got hot this year in May and stayed that way all summer.

Bracelets & Anklets & Bath Bombs, Oh my!

I had a long week at work this week, so at night, I worked my stress off by making SO many small projects.   I made a bunch of bracelets and ankle bracelets to bring to my sister, her daughters & grand-daughters.

These are not expensive to make, and they go very quickly.  Perfect weeknight projects!

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 – Tuesday Part Two

I finished up my chores, washed my little terrier dogs, and made time this evening to finish up my bath bomb making for the week.   It’s not like I have a choice… I am now out of Citric Acid!

A Thing a Day on Vacation – Day 3 – Sunday Afternoon

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.

A thing a day on vacation – Day 2

Day 2 of vacation and as I suspected, the smell of the bath bombs I made last night were enough to motivate me to make some more today!  On today’s docket…. Rose and Mallow Milk Bombs!

A Thing a Day on Vacation

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).
