Hello hello!

Well it sure was a busy weekend.  On Friday our family went on a camping to to Cimarron New Mexico to enjoy fun while at the Villa Philmont.  It is THE place to go if you are into Boy Scouts, camping or nature.  Our weekend was jam packed..when I say jam packed..I mean not a minute to spare.  We did get to see lots of beautiful animals while walking, hiking and driving.  Here are a few pictures that I wanted to share. 



If you would like to read up on Phimonte, please click here and here.  Will post more details about our weekend later this week.  Must get started SOAPing and Candling..can't wait to share the new goodies that I am whipping up with you...until then.  Have a great Monday!

Happy Sunday my friends!

Can I share..Sunday is my FAVORITE day of the week!  I think I have shared that before..but I absolutely love Sundays!  Here in our house, it is a day to rest, renergize and enjoy the day.  For me,..it is my day to create!  Nothing I like better than closing myself up and creating, whether it be soaps, candles, lotions, or crocheting. 

In my last post I had shared  pics of my clean craft studio..it has managed to stay clean but alas..today I must create..so I am positive that it will soon be a little scary.

Have a few pictures to share of my latest perfume balms/perfume sticks...not sure what I should call them.  Either way, they are FanTastiC!  Mmmmm...mmmmm they sure smell yummy.  My daughter scarfed one just as soon as I showed them to her.  I carry mine in my pocket, they are so handy..a little dab here and there and instant yummy goodness smell.  Here's my BIG tada!


Best of all, you can find them here  Please do come and visit my etsy shop, lots of new items are being added.  Until we chat again folks. :-)  Have a wonderful, splendid, relaxing Sunday!

Well...I have been working my tail feathers off..I was oh so diligent about taking pictures of my craft studio before and after I flew thru and cleaned cleaned and reorganized.  It really was tons messier..but yesterday I had put some of the craft soapy, candle..and lotion ingredients away.  Are you ready?  k..tada!

Good evening all!

So glad that the weekend is over and that life is back to normal...well as normal as it can get.  :-)  We had a good Easter but the cooking and cleaning that comes along with having guests is exhausting.  Finally got the house in order...so today I had a chance to play a little, created....Fragrance Balms or Perfume Sticks as I like to think of them..oh the yummy smells...oh yes, what was I saying?  Back to the lotion.  Made Hemp Lotion using the Rainforest Fragrance on Monday but just now got around to creating labels.

Here's how my lotion making process went.  My new supply order came in Monday morning..I was itching to create.  Do any of you feel that way?  When new supplies come in..my mind starts whirling...yuppperss....can't stop thinking of the goodies I want to/need to make.

After I had made dinner and everyone was relaxing, I thought..hmm..it's a little late but I MUST try this recipe.

First thing I did was put on my old black apron, hair net, face mask and gloves. What a lovely and I mean lovely sight I must have been.  *yea right*  Started melting and mixing.  Then I had this idea to  use the new stick mixer that I begged dh to buy for me (what a sweetie) to help mix the ingredients faster...now had I read the directions, I would have READ that the first attachment was a chopper...but naaa....no directions for this gal...snapped the attachment on and went to mixing..oh  my gosh!!!!!  Lotion was flying everywhere!  I started yelling for my hubby..poor guy he came running into my craft room to see what the fuss was about...I sure gave him a start HAAAAHAAAA the look of me dressed up made him jump..so funny.  But no time to laugh, pleaded with him to get me a bigger bowl..cuz of course I wasn't thinking of the wrong attachment.  Poor guy,..he really is such as ham.  He brought me a bigger bowl..poured all of the contents from the small bowl into the most Gigantic bowl I have ever seen...and turned on my handy dandy stick mixer again...and wouldn't you know????  Lotion still flying everywhere...then my dear hubby smart guy that he is said, "honey, let me look at the directions for your stick mixer, I think you have the wrong attachment on"  now did I say how smart he is?  YEPPerrrsss...wrong attachment, I was using the chopper instead of the mixer..hmmm...once I changed attachments..purrtttyyy lotion mixed nice and neat.  Wanna see a pic?


 Now you may ask...what about my craft studio?  well...I cleaned most of it up..will take pic to share with you all tomorrow..and of the perfume balms too.  hugs n squishes!
