Oatmeal, Milk & Honey Lotion

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.

Christmas Stockings

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).

Four More for the Gifting List

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!

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”

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””

ONE More Batch of Christmas Bath Bombs – Done!

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!”
