Cake Soap Slices

Don't these cake slice soaps look yummy?  I will have them in my shop soon.  They still have a little while to finish curing but I got packaging finished and pictures taken so I wanted to share them with you!

Summer Crafting

We have been doing some summer crafting projects around here.  We've had a rainy couple of weeks but that's okay!  Look at the fun things we made! ;0)  The first pictures are of a Christmas in July challenge I participated in.  We had to make a Christmas Tussy Mussy so of course I chose to make mine in Shabby style.  The other projects pictured are just some cans my daughter and I decorated for their desks for the upcoming school year.  We also altered a couple of mason jars and turned them into night lights!   Fun stuff around here.  Are you having a good summer?  I hope so.  Thanks for stopping by!

Vertical Paper Bag Mini Album Project Share

Here is my vertical paper bag mini album!  I got this project idea from a lady on YouTube who does tutorials on all kinds of albums.  Hers are just gorgeous.  If you're interested in learning or just looking at her albums, her YT channel is called My Sisters Scrapper and I'll put in the link straight to this specific tutorial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Aj9oMQYtVg&list=PLZWYZYWvRgNst9Kw7-fJlYoaZ7ZYC_XwM

I  still have some photo mats to make that will actually fit down into the paper bags but this is what I have completed so far after working on this off and on for about a week!  So much work!  But it's so much fun to be creative and pick embellishments to make the pages look pretty.  I am definitely going to be making more of these.  I think they will make nice Christmas presents for family this year.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I hope you are having a blessed week.  Lori

It's been a long time since I have made a soap cake.  I forgot how much fun they are!  It's got all that fluffy white icing drizzled in "strawberry sauce" ;0).  I also got some Hello Kitty bars made.  This was the first time of combining my cold processed soap with glycerine.  It turned out to be a process I'm sure I will do again.  I love the swirls.  There will be better pics posted soon.  I only have these that were taken with my phone right now.  I have been working on wax melts as well and have got to get them photographed and listed in my etsy shop. I've been trying to use up all the essential oils and fragrance oils I have so I can order some new fragrances for my soap as well as my wax.  So hopefully, I will have new products coming soon that I can share.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Crafty, Soapy, Waxy Friends!

I have been making wax melts like crazy this week.  I will be listing the new ones in the shop this afternoon.  I love making them and my house smells so delicious right now. ;0)

I thought I would share the banner I made a few weeks ago.  I am sort of new to papercrafting.  It is so much fun.  The other thing I made is a cupcake card that has a little pocket and cupcake envelope that fits inside.  Youtube has been inspiring me lately with the papercrafting and altering different things.  I don't know what I would do if  I couldn't constantly make things.  It's my outlet.  It's my thing!  I'm thankful that is what the Lord gave me. 

Thank you guys who stop by my blog.  I hope you all are having a great summer break so far.
