It's hard to believe that it's only been one year since I first made soap. Last Christmas, The Mister and I decided it might be fun to make a few bars for the family and the rest is history. I was hooked.
It's certainly a hobby that takes over your house.
At the moment, along with everything else I've got going on, The Mister and I are making 60 glycerin soaps for the Meals on Wheels organization in his mom's neighborhood. That's my new gingerbread mold. Isn't it cute? My new gingerbread fragrance is heavenly. I can't wait to make some silky cold processed soap with it.
We've got a regular little factory going. It won't take us long to get this done.
I did get a bit sidetracked with making some lotion bars. I made some for the dogs itchy spots and I loved them so much I wanted some for myself and as gifts for my skating friends.
I've also been wrapping up the Christmas cupcakes. That's easier said than done. Being an odd shape, it was hard to figure out just how to wrap them.
Six weeks ago I thought I had made tons of holiday soap but it's almost all gone already. This is it. My drying racks and shelves are empty. I've got nothing left holiday or otherwise. Now I've got something to look forward to once the holidays are over-making soap for spring. Six weeks (the curing time for soap) from mid January is..... almost March!
