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.

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!

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. 🙂

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!

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.

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!

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).
