It’s beginning to look a lot like “birthday”

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””

Five Outta Six Ain’t Bad

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”

A few things closer to “done”

What a busy weekend!  I spent all day both Saturday and Sunday getting a few more things made.   I made clay bath bombs, butter bombs, liquid sugar scrub, solid sugar scrub cubes, antibacterial soap and dried forsythia flowers.

I did have one failure this weekend, however.  It was with some frosted bath melts.  I have made these many times before too, but for some reason this time they did not work out.  Oh well… there’s always next weekend.  For a good laugh, read on to see the picture.

A Weekends’ Work – In pictures

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.

Cucumber Melon Bath Bombs & Strawberry Patch Bubble Bombs

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”
