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”.

Hooray! My vacation has been semi-approved due to a delay in our project at work! It’s good news (because I get to take vacation this week) and bad news (because I really didn’t think I was going to get to take the time off, so I didn’t adquately prepare). Also, it’s only semi-vacation because I am sort of “on-call” so if stuff starts hitting the fan I may get called back in. Continue reading “Special Delivery”
As every vacation does, this one went by far to quickly. I can’t believe it’s been a week already, but when I look back at all I accomplished in that week, I feel like I spent my time well.
This post is a round-up of all the things I made all week – this time with much better pictures. 🙂

Monday is here already and I am in full swing, making BIG messes of my kitchen!
I had mixed success today, with a few successes and a few failures.
Let’s start with the biggest failure — Experimental Surfactant Facial Scrub.

FINALLY it’s vacation again. It’s been a long, busy few months since I’ve had one. I couldn’t wait to get a head start on this, my first night of vacation!
Since I have been knitting and not making bath/body/soap for a while, I have no gifts made up yet for my sister’s birthday in August. Luckily I still have a little time before then, so I am going to use a large part of this vacation to play “catch-up” and get a good start on all the things I want to make for her (and my nieces).

Sadly, another Christmas vacation is now behind me, but what a time I had! I had two weeks of glorious freedom! While it did take a little while for me to get my muse focused, it did actually happen — eventually.
For the first week, I spent a good amount of time trying to figure out what I felt like doing. It was cold and snowy (I got my wish for a White Christmas!). I didn’t feel much like making lotion or soap — I just couldn’t get into washing all those dishes and getting wet when it was so cold out. So I decided to start out with sewing and see if that was what my muse wanted to do.

Hi all! I have been away for a couple of weeks. I needed a break from work and from book writing, and maybe a little bit from creating too. I took 2 weeks to do just “whatever” instead of having a plan. Sometimes that is good for the soul!
My plans were somewhat interrupted due to the recent hurricanes and preparations for the next ones. This made me have a “working vacation” since it caused some extra work at work. At least I got to enjoy some free time in between “on call” events.
I started out last weekend with a quick visit “up north” to see my sister, nieces, and deliver all the goodies I have been making them. It was a nice trip, a beautiful day, and very enjoyable. Needless to say everything I gifted them was well-received. Especially the bath bombs — always the bath bombs! Continue reading “Menagerie – Vacation Round-Up”
