My housework has been put on hold, again! That is my plan for the day! This past week, I have been playing with ChapStick! Making my own! Looking for that perfect chocolate peppermint mix!
I made a popcorn stitch hat for winter and made soap!
I plan to call it Winter Garden. It will be available in my Etsy shop November 1st. I also made Sugar cookie soap. Sorry, no pictures, (my dog Patch is in my lap!), but I love how dark the fragrance turned the soap. Smells great and it too will be available November 1st.
I have also been working on a baby sweater. It is finished, but needs to be put together! (Lots of unfinished projects for me to do.)
My next plan of action is to buy a photo box for professional pictures. Any photo tips would be greatly appreciated!
Do you know that one frugal person who won’t throw away a sliver of soap because it would be wasteful? I have the perfect gift for them! Soap saver bags!
Just throw the scraps into the bag and you will never waste soap again! Or put a whole bar in it!
I just added these cute bags to my Etsy shop last night. Two bags for $5. Go check it out! The colors available are purple, orange, blue and holiday.
I will be adding more colors eventually. I hope you have a great weekend! Melissa
No, I am not expecting, nor is any of my three daughters, but I am preparing!
The weekend was busy as always! Those days are reserved for me to sit on the sofa, knit or crochet, make soap and watch YouTube videos on how to make handmade items! Yes, I love my crafty life!
The picture above is the newborn hat and blanket I made! I bought the yarn, on clearance, at AC Moore. I still have a large skein left and plan on making a baby sweater with it.
Of course I made soap! I used a pvc pipe to get a round shape and I let the fragrance do its work to discolor the soap to brown. The fragrance is Gingersnap.
This is Love Spell! Such a beautiful scent! I can’t wait to use it! It will be available in my Etsy shop in six weeks.
I loved the scent so much I made eyeball bath bombs with it! I will have these in my shop by tonight!
I have been putting up bookshelves in my craft room to have more hoarding space, I mean more space. It’s a nice sized room, but when you are a crafter, you need a warehouse!
Have a beautiful Tuesday! Melissa
