Of the many things I made this weekend, I did get a chance to whip up two batches of palm-free soap (hooray!). I named them “Terra Cotta” and “Eskimo Kisses”.
Alas, I didn’t have the greatest of success, but they may still cure out to be wonderful — only time will tell!

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”
Wow, that went fast. I guess I was busy, but I enjoyed every minute of it.
In usual fashion, here is a round-up of my weekend crafting adventures. Continue reading “4 day weekend is kaput. Here is my (long) weekend round-up post.”
It was a fantastic long weekend for me, and I got 3 soaps made in total. I wasn’t expecting to be able to un-mold them for a few days, but for some reason, the stars all aligned and they were all ready to cut today.

Last week I made some palm-free soap for the first time and it turned out wonderful! The only problem was that I forgot to add my fragrance oil — DOH!
So this weekend, I did a reboot. I used slightly different colors, but the same palm-free recipe. Continue reading “Dragon’s Blood Type Soap – Remake”
I am off work today, playing hooky. Well, technically, I took a vacation day because tomorrow is a US Holiday, so I could have a nice, long weekend.
I ended up going shopping on Saturday, so I didn’t get to do anything very fun. Yesterday was spent with my husband getting his Xbox One set up, and I had to make some refills of my favorite lotions — Tsumami and Unscented Squalane, Kukui & Sesame. Those are my absolute two favorite and I used them all up already. Now I am happily restocked. 🙂
Today I finally got to make some soap. Continue reading “Playing Hooky to Make Soap”
I posted over the weekend about three soaps I had made – Patchouli & Spearmint, Ginger, Carrot & Orange, and Dragon’s Fire. Today they were finally ready to un-mold (sort of) and I got a chance to cut them and get a few pictures.
