    Did you know that more Manuka honey is sold than produced every year across the globe?

    maybe get the bottom rail that are used on chainlink fences and wire them or wooden fence posts. might be easier to work with, I am sure you will figure it out--just nice to do it before they get out hahahahaha

    started making foaming bath butter--will finish it tomorrow. I found a recipe online for bubble dough but darnit the ingreds weren't right on the amounts--I should know better so I just added a bunch of SLSA and am going to make bubble bars out of them tomorrow. I hope it works--I am over it for the night though. cant wait to see how the FBB turns out--so far it seems to have gone as planned.
    I need new bubble bars anyway--a couple little girls broke 4 of them on Saturday--didn't catch till they disappeared. next month they wont be allowed to touch them

    I'm new to soaping so its all an adventure! I went to a local farm, Gilchrist Farm for a Goat Milk Soap making class. Great place! and Monica made it all so easy. Milked a goat too. The next day I made Lavender GM Soap, Ginger Patchouli GM Soap & Sandalwood with Safflowers GM Soap. I will definitely have gifts completed for the holidays. What to do when you have too much soap????

    Gorgeous!!!!

    ——

    My husband likes my many swirly soap, it has his approval.

    ——

    Become an advocate for personal hygiene???

    Wash your hands three times at every sink????

    Wash yourself with 12 different bars of soap in the shower/tub?????

    Become a soap peddler???

    I think that last one is where I may be headed.

    I love, love, love these. The color combo is beautiful.

    I have trouble getting coconut scent to come through. Which one do you use? Does it not discolor?

    Cut two of my batches of soap today. Forgot the sodium lactate so I had to let them sit longer before I cut them. 20191118_193319.jpg 20191118_193339.jpg

    The trick to consistency on a drop spindle is the same as on a wheel: at least 15 minutes of spinning a day and in a short time you’ll see your yarn improve dramatically!

    Made a 12 bar batch of my Perfect Soap recipe. Poured it at just the right time. Used a version of the recipe to make 15 bars but used a mold for 12. I like my bars thick. Scented with Bay Rum. As usual, the scent accelerated the trace.
