What a weekend it was!

Time again for my weekly wrap-up!   It was quite a weekend.

Friday night I made two soaps:  Spearmint Patchouli and Carrot Ginger Orange.

Saturday I made 4 lotions – Dry feeling lotion, luxury facial cream, luxury facial lotion, luxury conditioner.

Today I made one more soap (Dragons’ Fire) and got my pictures taken and measured the pH of my lotions.

I’d say I had a great time!  I love my weekends!    And next week is a long weekend because I am taking July 3rd off work (the day before the US Independence day Holiday). So I will have a 4 day weekend!  Can’t wait! Continue reading “What a weekend it was!”

I have a new toy! My new Extech pH110 pH meter.

Finally!  My Extech pH110 pH meter has arrived!   I ordered it last week from Lotioncrafter, but they are out in Washington (USA) and I am way over in Michigan (USA) so it took a while.

Of course, with a new toy, I had to play!

Weekend Roundup – June 11 Edition

Time for a wrap up.  The weekend is already over (sadly). It was a productive weekend, however, as I made 6 lotions and got them all photographed.

I think these won’t be the final pictures though.  It was sunny today and I can’t get good enough pictures unless it is cloudy out. Continue reading “Weekend Roundup – June 11 Edition”

2 More for the Road

Wow, this weekend went by so fast it!  I can’t believe it is already over, but I guess that means that I enjoyed myself so much that time flew.    Because I took pictures today,  and had some chores to take care of, I only got time to get 2 more lotions completed.  That’s 6 for the weekend — not bad at all!

4 Attempts – 4 Successes – Perfect Saturday!

It’s Saturday and I am at it again — making a mess in my kitchen.

Today, I made 4 different batches of lotions and every one of them (knock on wood) has turned out perfectly — exactly as I envisioned them.   I love when that happens.

I won’t get a chance to get good pictures of the final products until tomorrow, but I took plenty of “making” pictures today! Continue reading “4 Attempts – 4 Successes – Perfect Saturday!”

June 2017 Vacation Round-Up / Slideshow

With another great vacation behind me, I wanted to do a quick wrap up of all the fun I had.   I love to look back over my creations and see the fruits of my labors all in one place.   It is too easy to forget all the ground you covered otherwise!

Anti-aging Facial Lotion, “My Precious” Baby Lotion and Molokai Cocktail Lotion – 3 new ones today!

Only one more day left of my vacation from work, so I am really working to get my “to do list” done.  I had a list of lotions that I wanted to get done on vacation, but “complications arose, ensued, were overcome”.  Due to my hot water heater being out for 3 days of this vacation, I didn’t get as much done as I would have liked, but I did get most of my recreation accomplished.  I feel refreshed (but not necessarily ready to go back to work). Oh well, one more day and it’s back to the grind again until the next one.

Today I made 3 lotions and I am very pleased with how all of them turned out.

  1.  Anti-Aging Facial Lotion (I haven’t thought of a good name for it yet)
  2. “My Precious” Baby Lotion
  3. Molokai Cocktail Lotion
