My niece, Andi, asked me if I could try to make her something like St. Ives Apricot Scrub. I decided to give it a try.
You see, surfactants and I don’t always get along. They are finicky and I don’t really have as good a handle on using them as I do with lotions and creams. I have had a few successes with them though, so I thought, “why not try?”

I’ve had such fun this week, enjoying my time off from work and relaxing by making Christmas gifts for my family! I just love my free time as it leaves me feeling creative and ambitious! (I wish I had such ambition for my day job!).
I thought I would do a little “wrap up” post to top of the week’s activities and to serve as a personal “vacation album”.

Today was the day I focused on making some gifts for the kiddos on my list.

As I suspected, dinner brought on new ideas for what I should do this evening. The requirements were: 1) No pressure. 2) Quick and Easy. 3) Able to complete in 3 hours.
So I waved my magic wand and transformed some chemicals and organic ingredients into a couple of “last thing on vacation” treats.

It’s the last full day of vacation for me to have fun. So I spent today playing. When the day started, I didn’t have any idea what I was going to make, but I decided to take on a challenge head on… more surfactants!
Surfactants have thus far been a fair-weather friend to me. I have had some minor success with them, one glorious victory, and many failures. So clearly, I need more practice!
