    Is the Easter Bunny coming to you ...

    Too cute :) We already have an Easter bunny, but she's brown. And she'd bite my fingers off if I tried that!

    Delicious shop on etsy

    The polka dots are fairly easy to make. Just need a circular mold to make the pillars, then add in layers.

    MP formulation question

    Mine must be quite liberal then considering to my last batch of M&P (1 1/2 lb batch), I added 2 tbsp of oils, 2 tbsps of butters, and 1 tbsp of beeswax... It's neither slimy nor soft, and lathers quite nicely...

    Shampoo Base for personal use

    I'm looking into getting a shampoo base that I can play with for just me. I have no interest in selling shampoo ;) What bases are the best? I know MMS has sample sizes, but I'm not making an order from there any time soon... If it helps, my hair is long, thick, blonde, somewhat damaged...

    MP formulation question

    This is the second time this week I have read on a forum that adding more than 1 tbsp/lb of oils to M&P could possibly make the oils spoil. What about superfatting in CP? They are left after sap and don't spoil. So why would they with M&P? I add way more than 1 tbsp/lb of oils, butters and...

    How do they do it?? (Awesome Etsy shop)

    Cassidy, No one said they were "just mp". I do "just" mp and am in awe of Savor's soaps. In fact, I plan on ordering a bar or two here in the near future. No one is bashing Savor.

    ridiculous things i am growing this year...

    One year when I still lived at my mom's, I grew 12 varieties of tomatoes. I can't remember the names anymore, but I had yellows, reds, purples, pink, etc. I took most of them to work. I tried two last summer, and I just don't have a good spot for them at my new house. You'd think of 7...

    Still around... kinda...

    I'm still here, just don't get on as much now. They blocked this site at work. So I can only get on at home, and my computer is kind of messed up. It's an older iBook and the screen occassionally blacks out. But I am reading :)

    Have you heard of LUSH?

    I still adore Lush. I just look at some of the products (bath bombs, etc) a bit differently now. They have a huge following, and will continue to do so. (I still have a box in my closet FULL of Lush. I just can't bear to part with it :) )

    Question about loofah soaps

    What about using ground luffa? I saw colored luffa powder on one of the sites... WSP I think. I haven't ordered it yet though...

    Yeah, definitely experiment. I add more than 1 tbs of additives, but it depends.

    2 new soaps

    First, Lavender Vanilla. Now I hate lavender with a passion. Can't stand it. But blended with the vanilla, it's not too bad. I can tolerate it :) I don't know what caused the lines. Kind of strange. Second, Blue Alyssum. I love alyssum flowers. This scent is a soft honey-floral...

    Doesnt this make you SICK/SCARED!?

    I'm glad we're on well water. I do take bottled water to work, but only because our pipes here must have rust or something in them. The water smells and tastes nasty. It literally makes me sick. However, I do always recycle every single bottle. And am now getting the Dannon ones that are...
