Massage bars

 The Massage bars use similar ingredients to the lip balms. They are just slightly harder ( use a little more bees wax) and instead of flavours, you use essential oils.
So far I have made rose and lemon bars ( cakes) - I use the silicone muffin cases and fill the about half full. I shall make more but have run out of some of my ingredients. 
Amazon SHOULD have delivered today - so much for garenteed one day delivery!
Looks like it will be Monday now.

I STILL havent had a go at making bathbombs - I do have everything ready to make them - except time!
Another 1500 word essay to do this weekend . I have almost finished my course now, just a few weeks to go . I am pleased to say that I am on track.
Now have to go be a taxi driver..

And more Soap!

 First a re cap on the lemon soap- I dyed it a pale lemon and tried to swirl the colours into the bar - unfortunately - the colours just stayed on the top but I still like the look and the soap has a lovely delicate lemon zest smell ( I might use more essential oil next time )
***
The lip balm got a good revue from my tester :) I think its still a little hard So when I make my next lot, I will add more butter and oil.
***
The poppy seed that I put on top of the Coconut soap bar, all fell off as I had suspected and the ones on the bottom , mixed in the whole bar but worked quite well.
***

While this soap doesnt look much, - I need to work on my decoative abilities- It smells HEAVENLY!
Dyed a pale purple - usining red and blue dye - I have no purple (yet).
The essential oil is Violet- Yummm.

Lip gloss and more soaps

 Last night I made tinted lip balm - I have sent one off to be tested and will let you know what my tester thinks.

 Tonight its Coconut scented goatsmilk soap with blue poppy seeds.
I put a tea soop on the bottom of the first mould but as you can see, theyt all mixed in - I dont mind as it will give a nice texture to the soap for scrubbing. The second one has the seeds pressed into the top but I guess quite a few may fall off when I take it out of the mould.

Lastly , I made some lemon scented goastmilk soap to slice up when set. I have swirled some yellow colouring in the soap so , hopefully it will look good when sliced- We shall see!

Not enough hours!!

 Even though it is half term  (and I have been laying in till 8) there is still so much to do!
I started a Level 4 course in October and have to finish by December. I have a 1500 word essay to do this week and a few other bits and pieces - just did a 600 word evaluation on a lesson from last week.

Need to get done so I can get to my craft desk - underneath.
I also have *homework* from Megan's social worker - some MORE forms that I was hoping she would do!! Poor Meg cant get support until they are sorted , so thats first on my list this afternoon.
I said I would tidy the garden up - I MAY do a before and after pic , if it gets done! It will also require the hiring of a skip!
I have a haircut booked for tomorrow and I need to pack for the ATDML retreat on Friday - SO looking forward to that!

Will be back with photos of That!

Little update

 Still sorting out the craft room/office. Things will be tidier when I get the chance to sort though bags of papers to shred and get the filing done. I found a chest of drawers to put my 12" x 12" papers in , so there was a little reoganisation to do - Those cream boxes have now been replaced with larger black ones that houis my rubber stamps.

 Last weekend my sis took me along to the craft fair at Thetford . I didn't have much money on me but manages to come back with a couple of stamp sets . LOVE those kaisercraft ones and just LOOK at the price!

I am loving the table covering for the craft room . I got it from here I have to say , I have not seen anywhere cheaper.
