Let the Good Times Roll!

I’ve been at it again, messing up my kitchen, filling my house with fragrances, and overflowing my dining room table with finished products!   I wouldn’t change a thing about it though — I am having so much fun!

This weekend I managed to make 5 things:  Telangyn Peptide Lotion, Gladback Collagen Facial Serum Spray, Oatmeal Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter, Facial Clay Masks, and Body Balms.

I think I am done now with making everything for my sister’s birthday visit, but I keep thinking of more things to make.  Good thing there is only one more weekend left before I see her because I am running out of room!

Something a little bit different

This weekend was spent doing something different.   I have been making soaps and lotions for so long, that my sewing fell behind schedule.   I was able to catch it up this weekend, though, and I am just two projects short of being done.

To round out my gift to my sister and her girls when I go see them in a couple of weeks, I make them some cute pillowcases and cell phone wristlet purses.

I have made these for them many times before, but they so look forward every year to getting a new one. Continue reading “Something a little bit different”

The amount of fun you had is proportional to the size of the mess you made! A weekend wrap-up!

Wow, what a weekend I had!   I made 6 batches of bath bombs and two batches of soap!

I owe my sister a visit soon, and all the things I have been making for months are really stacking up!   My dining room and kitchen were a total mess, but the way I see it, if you didn’t make a mess, then you weren’t having fun!

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””

Adventures in Soaping

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!

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”
