This week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday items are: starts with c, cool, media, scarf, and something new. I always try to find a theme for my scavnger hunts, but I could only fit three of them to share my recent soapmaking adventures.
From last weekend to this weekend I made thirteen batches of soap to prepare for the busy holiday season. Here they are curing (starts with c) on my little shelf. Well, twelve of the batches are here. I ran out of room for the last one. The tea tree soap is on the other set of shelves.
Top: Lightly Lavender, Cornmeal Scrubbing with Lemongrass Oil, Cucumber Melon & Black Amber and Lavnder; Middle: Heavenly Honeysuckle, Milk and Honey, Chai Tea, and Magnolia; Bottom: Cornmeal Scrubbing with Tea Tree Oil, Moonlight Pomegranate, Lovely Lilac, and Kentish Rain.
The milk and honey is something new. I’ve not done that fragrance in soap before. It was quite popular with the wax melts and candles at the pumpkin patch, so I thought I’d use it for soap too. I also made a batch of Heavenly Honeysuckle because the sample batch I made sold out at the pumpkin patch.
I have added two other new soaps (vanilla oak and lavender) to my website (media) for sale. You can check it out HERE. The Milk and Honey and Heavenly Honeysuckle have to finish curing before I can add them. I’m also hoping to add wax melts to the market soon. That’s my next project.
Bob is a pretty cool dude, and I liked the shadows too.
I wasn’t sure what to do for scarf, but with hunters in the ditches along my property today made me think I need to get a bright orange scarf to put around Llenny’s neck.
It wouldn’t even have to be knitted from llama yarn.
