My newest creations. I made some really fun Sugar Scrubs yesterday and used a fragrance called Cake Bake. Last night Nick was doing his homework sitting right next to my sugar scrubs. He said to me "mommy, you have to move those somewhere else because they smell soooo good I want to eat one!" I tried one and they're the bomb! Here they are:

I also made some nice soap with Hawaiin Rain fragrance, and while they smell awesome, the color weirded out on me yet again. Sooooo frustrating!! I wanted orange but instead got yellow on the inside and orange on the outside. Weird huh?

So there you have it, my learning experiences are far from over when it comes to soapmaking. That's the fun of it though, experimenting to your heart's desire! ;-)

Just found an old pic of me

It’s amazing what old age will do to a person.  Was looking through some old pics and came across this pic of me at 27.  Gosh those were the good old days!  I surely miss being in my 20’s, they were the best times of my life.  I was young, healthy, thin!!, and happy.  I personally think marriage is overrated.  But motherhood, that is the very best!!  My son is my everything!  Now if I could just go back to my twenties with my son then I’d be a very happy girl.  I know, wishful thinking….  I’m just not happy about growing old.  It really sucks!

My latest soaps-Lemon Verbena with Forbidden Fruit

These soaps actually came out pretty. The colors didn't freak on me however I had problems with ash as usual. Hate that stuff!! So I chopped of the tops and made the scraps into little balls for some future project down the road. I'm happy with the way they turned out. Here's some pics:
