    Confession ... I hate salt bars. They are all rough on my skin, not that bubbly, I just don't see the appeal

    I sewed when my children were young and some of my favorite times were when they were asleep and I could smoke and sew-loved it! Don’t beat yourself up over it-you’ll quit (and still soap!)

    A couple of years back I unearthed my old barbies (90’s barbies) and gave them a good clean, new clothes and even rerooted a couple of them. Then I bought some new barbies cause their bodies are different and now come on different sizes and I have them all on display. Apparently I like dolls cause then I bought the more interesting looking (to me) monster high dolls aaaaand I’m digging my colection of funko pops. Not to mention my colection of Saint Seiya Myth Cloths... i have a problem.

    I'm pretty sure I'm a craft addict. I taught myself how to make soap, knit, make tile coasters, wet felt and my mom taught me how to sew and quilt. I also want to learn how to screen print, make candles and lip balms. My husband keeps asking me to not pick up any more hobbies. Lol! Silly husband!

    I'm just the opposite...I tend to split it too early (then pray it doesn't separate) because I'm afraid I won't have enough time to work with it.

    I often find if I start with a couple of martinis, I don't even need to make soap that day. ;)

    I guess I should have read that "Just kidding" part before making my last batch. Dr. says I'll be on solid food in no time.

    Haha I have the opposite issue. My she cat is the jerk who doesn’t listen. My he cat is respectful until said she cat comes in and he forgets all of his manners and follows her lead.

    My confession: total newbie. I have watched hundreds of hours of soaping videos, i have a notebook filled with recipes, I have all my supplies ready and waiting. I dream up designs. I even tell the people in the videos they made a booboo ... but I’m intimidated!

    Yet I make beautiful candles, plant medicine and beads from rose petals but soaping brings me to my knees! :hairpulling:

    I used to like to mow my son's lawn. I liked driving from my house to his house on the riding lawn mower so I could mow his lawn. Until I ran over some rabbits because they didn't know which direction to run and ran right underneath the blades. I was glad when I didn't have to mow his lawn after that.

    Same, but I just started selling mine at Farmer's Markets. It gives me an excuse for the molds and tools that I have, and people seem to really love my soaps. The leftovers, I use for myself. That's my confession. I use way too many of my own product, but I love it!

    Just start with a small batch of a plain, simple recipe. Get that first, low-risk one out of the way and then you'll be ready for some of the things you see on YT.

    Confession- I have a large bowl of oodles soap ends at each sink so I can try my old soaps out any time. I put a few marbles in the bottom so they dry pretty quickly. They don't really look too pretty but no DOS, and I can tell which scents will stand the test of time.:)
