    Sticky the gecko

    Cutie! We have a crestie as well. We bought her a (gecko-safe) potted plant and she's taken to digging out the soil and laying her eggs in it once a month. So we always have to go fishing for eggs and tidying up the mess. The poor plant has been through a lot!

    Instant Pot Chicken Soup

    I loooove my Instant Pot! I got one for Christmas and I've been using it weekly since. I just did a pot of chicken noodle soup last weekend too. I buy a precooked rotisserie chicken and strip the meat, then use the bones for the broth. I add the bones, celery, carrot, onion, bay leaf, salt and...

    Sept 2018 SMF Challenge - Carved Soap Designs!

    Smart idea! Did you score the old bars before pouring to make sure the new layer sticks?

    How to take photos of soap

    To add onto this: on Android, "Meitu" is an awesome free photo editing app. The UI makes it seem like it's only purpose is 'beautifying' selfies, but I find their photo adjustment tools really great. You can manually adjust brightness, contrast and other settings, but their Auto settings are...

    Sept 2018 SMF Challenge - Carved Soap Designs!

    Nice work so far @mommycarlson and @SunRiseArts! The nice thing about this challenge is the capacity to experiment with carving while still having many 'backup' bars if you don't like the first carving. It definitely takes some practice to create a design you're happy with! @TeresaGG - do it...

    Sept 2018 SMF Challenge - Carved Soap Designs!

    You can definitely use MP. I've personally never used it so I can't comment on whether it'd impose any challenges in carving. I've heard it cures harder so maybe it'd be more difficult to carve through? Not sure! Both links seem to be working fine for me on mobile and desktop.

    Great idea earlene! I imagine carving soap could be quite relaxing, similar to knitting!
