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!

Four Successful Lovely Lotions and Conditioners

Wow, I don’t know how time flies so fast!   I blinked my eyes and just like magic, it is Sunday night already!

Yesterday it was cloudy and rainy, so I spent most of the day taking pictures of the lotions I had made last weekend.   I only had time left to make one lotion last night.

Then today, I made 3 more lotions and managed to get some “draft” photos of them.  It was sunny again, so that always makes my camera non-compliant. Continue reading “Four Successful Lovely Lotions and Conditioners”

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!

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!

The last two vacation projects

Today is officially the last day of my vacation.  Tomorrow it is back to spreadsheets, meetings and long hours of I.T. related work.

As I decided to sleep in today rather than get up and have an early start to my day, I only got 2 things made, but they both turned out great, so I am happy!

Today, I made 2 lotions – Cocoa-Nuts Lotion and Vanilla Cream Moisture Therapy Hair Conditioner.

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

Cream of the Crop – Weekend Roundup

Yesterday I posted a recipe for a luxury cream that is similar in ingredients to Rodin Olio Lusso Crema. That lotion, however, was not the only one I made this weekend. This weekend I made 6 lotions in total!    Continue reading “Cream of the Crop – Weekend Roundup”
