I hope to get back to soapmaking very soon. Until then, I will keep posting random pictures of other crafts I do to keep my blog going. The top two pictures are mug cozies I knitted. I still have to add buttons to them but I think they turned out super cute and would make nice gifts for my coffee drinking friends ;0). The other pics are crochet things I have been working on at night when I have time to sit down before bed. Youtube has some great patterns.
Thanks for continuing to stop by my blog. Happy New Year!
I have been crafting like a mad woman lately. I have finished several crochet projects and have started more. I am working on filling my etsy shop up for the holidays and finally got more things listed last night. Today, I'll be working on making some bath cookies and a couple of other things. I just thought I'd share the things I finished up this week. Hope you all are having a great weekend! It's a beautiful time of year.
I have been busy making my soaps to list for the holidays. They came out so nice and sparkly. I will be listing these in my shop in 3 weeks. The first soap, with the cupcakes and candy on top, is called Strawberry Bubbly and is a duplication of Strawberry Champagne. The second soaped is called Cherries in the Snow and smells like cream and cherries. The third soaps are salt bars and I can't wait to try one out. I've only made a few salt bars. This one is filled with salts and has pink himalayan salts sprinkled on top. I haven't come up with a name for these yet.
I have also made some more wax tarts but haven't taken their pictures yet. That's on the list for tonight. The scents are raspberry cheesecakes, strawberry bread, butter pecan pie, and cranberry apple bread. They have my schoolroom smelling so delicious. ;0)
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you are having a wonderful, blessed weekend.
I finally got most all my new scents listed yesterday. Listing is definitely not my favorite part of the crafting. It takes so long to take the pictures and list everything. Maybe one day I'll figure out a faster, easier way of doing it. I'm even thinking of making my own website in the near future instead of using etsy. All the fees I have to pay on etsy add up. The plus side of etsy is the traffic it gets. Lots of potential for customers when you are just starting out like us.
I made some soap today. I didn't take any pictures of it yet. The whole kitchen smells good! I used a new cranberry fragrance I hadn't used before. It soaped great...no problems. It's a fragrance I'm sure I'll make again. Tomorrow, I'm making Cherry Burst. It's one I've made before but will be making it look different this time. Since it's soap that will be for the holidays, I'm trying to come up with names to fit this time of year. My little chicks are the ones that usually help with that part. Stay tuned for soap pics this week!
