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).

Christmas Bath Bomb Round-Up

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”

The Christmas Crafting Marathon Begins

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!

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”
