Life is passing at the SPEED of light!

25 Feb

Happy Tuesday!

Here on the east coast some of the snow has melted (not all) but some. 

Thank God!

But just to let you know as I’m typing this it’s snow flurrying.  ICK! I’m not sure about you but I’m in NEED of some warmth and sunshine. I think they call it SPRING! Yes, that’s what they call it Spring>>>>>

I can not wait to see the flowers pop and the leaves on trees and smell the fresh clean air. AHHHH….. it’s what I long for. In the meantime I make soaps that brighten my day. Hope they brighten yours too!

It’s a NEW week!

10 Feb

Thank goodness for Monday and one day closer to Spring. This winter has been nothing but White on White on White. AND to tell you the truth I’ve just about had it. There is only so much white I can handle. You know its bad when you wake up in the morning and you look outside to see if it snowed. And when you LOOK outside it looks exactly the same as the night before. That is until you looks at the side walk or the road and notice that yes it did indeed snow. AHHHHH..

Thank God for Soaping! I’ve started to make my spring soaps. I’m starting with Lilac. Oh, have I LOVE the scent of Lilacs in the Spring.

Re-batched Soap!

30 Sep

Happy Monday!

The weekend went by so fast didn’t it?

Anyway, We’ve had this batch of soap (Guinness)soap that has been around for a bit. Mainly because we had forgotten to add the fragrance. We sell a lot of beer soap but believe or not Men actually like that added scent. Who knew, right?

So, what we needed to do was re-batch the batch we had made. What’s re-batch? It’s the same as Hand-milled soap. You take soap that has already been made (Great for anyone that doesn’t want to work with Lye) and melt it. Then you can add  fragrance and/or color of your choice. It’s wonderful way to make ALL Natural bars using essential oils.

For us it’s not our favorite way to make soap but it works especially when you forget something like fragrance! LoL 🙂

Since I take the pics by myself sometimes it’s hard to get just the right pictures that i was looking for…If you have ANY questions Please ask 🙂

Hopefully the weather will change. Because right now it’s been raining and raining and raining. There’s something you should know about rain and soap (they don’t mix)…You really don’t want bubbles on the bars when you’re trying to sell them. LoL
