Soap Making

bathbomb.jpegWent to Lush this weekend and bought a few bath bombs, including the one on the left (Think Pink).  Great service – the sales girl gave a little bath-bomb demo, and free soap sample when we purchased.  I’m really not a bath person – showers are a lot quicker, but that demo had me feeling like those pricey balls of fizz would be worth it.

 I once heard about how easy it was to make them, so I thought I’d do a little internet search…

I saw a cute design in one gallery that had them looking like robin’s eggs or little round rocks… made up of a very light blue or grey/purple colour and bits of herbs and glitter mixed in… 

Re: soap, I’m resisting the urge to buy up all the equipment and make myself some awesome clear soaps with cranberry seed and silver glitter suspended in it, smelling like cranberry orange or some yummy holiday scent…

Maybe I’ll check etsy.com first …

 (PS – been a little busy buying and selling our house … not much time for blogging last month …)

Thought I’d start dramatically …

This is a photo of my garden tulips from last year. Unfortunately this year they weren’t so dramatic (in fact I don’t recall seeing them at all – squirrels, maybe?).
