For the past 2 weekends, I have been busy getting tons of bath bombs made for Christmas giving. When I added up my list of recipients and figured out how many bath bombs they were each getting, it came to slightly over 100.
That frightened me a little bit because that is a LOT of bath bombs (for me to make) and Christmas is coming soon! So I got busy and attacked the task head-on. Continue reading “Christmas Bath Bomb Round-Up”
Christmas is fast approaching. It will be here before we know it! This year, I am gifting many bath bombs, lotions and a few soaps.
When I add up the number of bath bombs I need for my gifting list, it comes to about 108. That is a LOT of bath bombs. I decided to get an early start and get these done so I wouldn’t be in a rush as the holiday approaches. This weekend I got 4 batches done, for a total of about 45 — so almost half way there!

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”
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.

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”
