    Freezer Paper-where do you buy it?

    Hi Susie, glad your DH found it. I would have said any Winco should have it. I would bet Ace Hardware too. Plus a real quilting fabric store - not a big box JoAnn's or Michaels, but a mom n pop quilting fabric store, or they could at least tell you which stores in the area have it...

    Discouraging comments from others on your CP soaps?

    Hi Makayla, Very sorry that you feel discouraged by family members' comments. I go along with several of the helpful comments here: give making liquid soap a try, use FO, change the lard ratio, etc. In the end we are creatures of habit and set in our ways. I think it could even relate to the...

    Should uninsured hobbyist donate?

    be particular with whom you gift to as there is an old adage for a reason... no good deed goes unpunished Please excuse my slightly pessimistic take away from the lovely sentiment of charitable gifting.

    Happy New Year! What are your traditions?

    yep - black eyed peas for sure. Corn bread and cabbage were huge in the house growing up. Yep - Daddy was a Texan! I haven't been able to recover grandma's cornbread recipe - dang it. She used the lodge cast iron corn bread pans to bake it in. A tradition I started w/DH has been to always...

    Why is price so important?

    Craig you're just awesome. Toxicon and Steve make valid points. I have made a couple of concessions once in a while. I too have worked very diligently over the years at my main talent as a seamstress. I built quite a reputation and followed proper pricing structure. It is very difficult to...

    Lotion bar packaging

    They do work pretty well, very handy. I do have one container that recently the bottom cracked. The soft salve/ balm is calendula/rice-bran, Texas cedar-wood, rosehip, shea and beeswax that I made in early March 2016. This container is kept in the medicine cabinet. Two other containers each at...

    Impulse sealer stopped working

    half jokingly... will the cheapest Wilton "wire" cake slicer and the burner on the stove work in a pinch - on a silicone mat placed on top of an upside down cookie sheet?

    Thickening of Cold Process Liquid Glycerin Soap

    Hi Ngian, Your timing is perfect as I plan on making a batch of that soap recipe this weekend for a standard dispenser. DH loves regular liquid soap. He was not a fan of my thin foamer liquid soap earlier this year - but it felt soooo good with a nice creamy lather. Thank you for the...

    Animal Testing

    I've become a tad-bit cynical when it comes to FDA. We do have flexibility right now. However, it seems like the FDA over-steps and under-steps with the constant being linked to lobbyists and huge corporations that provide comforts for our elected officials. I think in truth... we only see the...

    Animal Testing

    Yep - everything Susie mentioned. It is MORE pushed out here on the So Cal West coast due to Hollywood. The entertainment industry is a very powerful pusher of their agendas. California legislation gets pretty jacked up (cockhold) on some issues.
