I've got soap curing all over the place. I've never made so much soap at one time. It's a good thing because everyone keeps asking me for some. My retired teacher friends were disappointed that I didn't show up with my usual bag full to give away. I felt bad but I assured them I'll have plenty next time.
I love these big chunky bars. This one is Black Salt and Cypress. I come in and look at it every day. It's so pretty.
Even though I've got way too much soap curing I still have an itch to scratch. I want to make some Castile soap. That is soap made from one thing....olive oil. No fancy butters or milk additives, just olive oil. It has to cure for almost a year so if I make it now it will be ready by next Christmas-if I can keep my hands off of it for that long.
Since I've been in the soap making groove lately, I gave myself an early birthday present. A stick blender with a detachable blade I found on Amazon during their Cyber Monday sale. I hate dragging my old one piece blender through the house to clean. It's just a matter of time before I trip over the cord.
My real birthday isn't until next Monday but I also gave myself another present-a big one. Here's a little hint. I'm so excited about it that I can't wait to show it to you-but we'll both have to wait until it gets here. Squeeee.....
