Whatever you celebrate this time of year, I hope it is enjoyable! Continue reading “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!”
Since I spent part of my weekend sewing (Saturday), I didn’t get to make very many of the “other” items on my Christmas gifting list this weekend, but I did manage to get one more lotion made — Oatmeal, Milk & Honey.
This weekend was a good opportunity to get some sewing done. It is getting cold outside, and while it didn’t snow yet, it was at least cloudy and rainy. I love sewing on snowy days, but rainy days are my second favorite.
My niece had asked me to make a Christmas stocking for her and her husband since last year I made them for all the kids. While I was at it, I picked up a couple more fabrics so I could make some for my other niece and her son (wouldn’t want to leave them out).
Whew! What a week I had at work. I was so glad it was Friday, I just couldn’t wait to get started making some body butters and lotions for my Christmas giftees.
Unfortunately, I had a few chores which ate into my time a little bit, and my husband caught a cold, so he slept in later than usual, which also limited the amount of time I had. Luckily, since I started early (Friday night) I was at least able to get four things made this weekend before running out of time. I made large batches this time, so even though I made only 4 things, there ended up being 9 jars/bottles in all!
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”
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””
I recently made several batches of different kinds of bath bombs for Christmas gifts. I made some that were emulsified with oils, and some plain ones. The only problem is that I miscounted and did not make enough.
I have one family that has 4 ladies. I only made them 6 bath bombs. Not good. So today I made another batch and tried something new. Continue reading “ONE More Batch of Christmas Bath Bombs – Done!”
