Home from Las Vegas....

Well, I actually have been home for a few days, just been being lazy! Spent a few GREAT days with my sisters, Gramp, and of course Damien and Vivian the second..... It ended all too quick, so I am planning to go back up there in July (fingers crossed).... I really miss my Gramp....

Well, school is out! My daughter graduates next Wednesday...... Can't believe how fast time flies... My oldest son just turned 19! WOW! Damien will be 1 on June 15th......

On the soap issue, I just made a GREAT smelling Oatmeal Geranium Bar, this one is gonna be real nice! Will post a pic when I unmold and cut it.... That reminds me, the new batches that will start being put up in June will start being a little bit of a thicker cut..... I want my customers to get the most of their money and enjoy a longer lasting bar...... :) I also lowered the prices in the main store to 4.00 a bar.... Only special bars and spa bars will continue to be a bit higher prices. These prices will remain in effect until supply prices go up..... :)

Thanks listening to me rant and rave! Til next time.....

My 60's Hippie Bar will have a blend of Patchouli, Lavender, and Orange Essential Oils, for an oh so pleasing aroma!

Mother's Day.......

Just another day for me really. Nothing changes too much, just glad that God allowed me to be Mother and blessed me with so many ;)

Thanks for Brent, Kayla, Alessandra, TJ, Chris, Ethan, Darius, Makenzi, and Damien!!!

Cold Process Cappiccino and Basil Citrus

Sneak Peaks---- I am totally loving these......

This is the Basil Citrus! This smells absolutely amazing! I cannot wait for this to cure!!!

This smells like the real thing, this is gonna be a morning waker upper! Complete with froth and a dash of cinnamon...... Wish I could get my cousin Michael to take pictures of my soaps for me. His photography is amazing, but I live in AZ and he lives in LA.....

Grocery Shopping today!

I went to the worst place in the world to give them 457.00 for groceries, I HATE WAL-MART, I really do, but living in a semi-small town, I don't have a lot of options as far as getting all I want or need at one place. Travis and I spent 2 hours roaming around Wal-Mart today and 2 grocery carts later, our pantry is once again full...... For now, until the kids get hungry, lol..... I was gonna have a steak tonight, but those somehow got buried in the back of the freezer, huh!

I am tired, but gonna go finish up getting dinner prepared and getting the kids ready popcorn and movies, than I will make some more soap! YAY!

Sweet Pea and Jasmine Hot Process!

Had some fun with this one and it came out just as I had hoped!

Tonight's project includes a Cappuccino Bar, with all the frothy goodness! Can't wait!! Fingers crossed on this one.

Start a blog they say!

Well, I guess writing a blog is like writing a diary in sorts? Do people really care what I have to say?

Ok, well I make soap! I love love love making soap! Everyday I try and brainstorm new soap to offer to you. Most of my soaps will be Limited Editions :)

Tonight and Last night I made a Patriotic Soap for a July 4th themed stocking coming in June.... Came out pretty cute I think and guess what I scented it with?????........... Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie, and Chevrolet..... Well, ok, Apple Pie, with a dash of cinnamon..... That said ALL AMERICAN to me...... I also made a Camper's Soap to keep those pesky mosquitoes at bay.....

Over the next couple days, I am thinking a Basil/Lime soap and maybe a Patchouli....... ;)

Here's tonight's beauty:
