    One thing after another....

    So, with holiday shows approaching, I'm so far behind...for good reasons and bad reasons. After getting Grammy's affairs in order, I found that her last will left me the house and contents. So now more lawyers and angry relatives...sigh. At least they're 1300 miles away, and my lawyer is...

    My childhood quilt...and my Grammy

    I haven't been around much, and I'm going to try and get better about it... My Grammy fell ill, and I went to see her. I drove almost 19 hours to NY, and was able to spend just 5 days with her. Shortly after I began the trip back to Missouri, I got the phone call I had been dreading. Grammy was...

    Bridal Expo...Help!!!

    So, a friend recommended me for a bridal expo. Having never done an event like this, I need help. I've done many shows and markets and I know this will be out of my comfort zone. The info I have is that it is a first year event. It is at a local, relatively new wedding/vacation venue, and is...

    Lye Storage

    Hi all! Normally, I buy my lye in 5- 10 lb containers. However, I've been given a 5 gal pail...yay!... but I'm uncertain how to store it. I cannot haul around the pail, and once I open it, I'd like to have a plan in place to keep it as fresh as possible. I have a gamma bucket setup, would it be...

    How do you think it will affect you? "Due to a disastrous warehouse fire at a critical manufacturer, our industry is experiencing a shortage of multiple critical ingredients used in the formulations of many fragrances. Rustic Escentuals has already experienced a negative issue with a...

    Leftover holidays salts

    So... I had several packages of bath salts leftover, in holiday scents. What do you do with leftovers? If I vacuum seal them, what do you think are the chances of them lasting longer? I figure I'd have to add fragrance again. I just hate to let them go to waste. Thanks!

    I survived Thanksgiving! They chose not to attend, and the day went smoothly. Apparently, my MIL felt I needed a pick me up, so I got my Christmas present from her early, and the girls being the marvels they are, I got my package today!!!! I'm in soapy heaven :smalltree:

    Thanksgiving...bah humbug.

    I like to think I'm a considerate hostess. I plan a menu that is kid and adult friendly, with lots of different dishes. Today is my second day of cooking, and I'm cleaning in between. I'm tired, and have been contemplating opening a bottle of wine since 8 am...lol My brother in law's girlfriend...

    Sugar scrub cubes oils question

    After reading the threads I could find here, and elsewhere on the web, I have a question... I'd like to try both MP and CP recipes, and everything I've read says to use a light oil...grapeseed, sweet almond, or avocado. Can I use olive oil instead? My skin seems to like it the best...but is...

    Online Labels -

    I'm so very pleased with them. I've been ordering from them for over a year, and have never had any problems. This past week, I ordered more than usual, preparing for the holidays. I got them Saturday, and immediately started printing... 20 sheets worth. Get out to the shop, and the labels...

    Got my 1st bad review...

    ...because I refused, politely, to teach a 5 year old how to make CP. When the child's grandmother asked, I assumed she meant MP, which I would do... but no, I was informed, she wants to make "real" soap; that they had been watching videos online. When I suggested she may want to start with MP...

    Why I have no time to soap...

    As wedding season here will be in full swing soon, my other "hobby turned business" has kept me too busy to let me soap. I believe I'm having withdrawls...lol... Anyway, here is some of the custom work I've done this week.

    Bath Tea

    Forgive me if there's a similar post... I couldn't seem to find one. I like oatmeal baths, but don't like the mess. In my wanderings around the web, I saw a recipe for bath tea bags. It seems simple enough...1 c. epsom salt, 1 c. oats, and 2 T. dried lavender buds. But then they add 20 drops...

    Jackpot!

    I live not too far from a small Amish community, and that's the best option for me to get lye...but I didn't even think about all the "other" stuff... I bought 5 lb. bags of epsom salt for $1.35 ea.! Pink Himalayan salt is $2 a lb. Cornstarch and baking soda-$.50 a lb., citric acid $.75 a lb...

    These soaps....

    I'm completely enamored of these soaps. Is it MP? HP transparent? I haven't found a MP base so clear...have I been missing something? The pages are translated, and I was unable to get any info, but I know you folks can help! Wasn't sure where to post this, as I'm not sure what exactly it is....

    Yesterday's soaps

    I haven't had much inspiration lately, but I'm really pleased with the simple soaps that I ended up with. These are the first batches made with my home made liners from cutting mats. The FOs are Apple Mango Tango, Galactic Grape, Market Peach, and Coco Cabana, all from WSP. I like everything...

    Success!!!... so far

    I'm not very good with freezer paper on the best of days. 2 part silicone...well, let's just not go there... DH made my molds, so they're all the same, but not a standard size mold by any means...lol... I was at Dollar Tree a couple weeks ago, and saw those flexible cutting mats that had no...
