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).

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”
