What I did yesterday


Yesterday was a soap making day. In less than two weeks is our (that would be my daughter and I) first Christmas market. So it was full steam ahead to make sure that we have plenty of products on hand for all the upcoming shows. First up were Peppermint Bars. Next came... ... Lavender Pumpkin Bars... then came...... Lavender Vanilla Bars. Of course you all know me well enough to know that I had to make something that smelled of chocolate. So I made Chocolate Fudge Brownie Bars! Last but not least I finished up with...... some Woodland Soap for men.

My garage smells wonderful (that's where I do my soap making). My hands are lovely and soft and we have quite a bit more product to take to the Christmas craft fairs.

I am hoping that I will still be able to blog on a somewhat regular basis as well as trying to do the craft shows and make more product as orders come in. So if I am gone for a few days I apologize ahead of time.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

The lavendar/pumpkin ones are pretty but I'll bet the lavendar/vanilla ones smell wonderful. Wish I could get to that market. It sounds like so much fun.

They all look so lovely but I'm sure that quarantine would frown on me trying to bring them into Australia! The photographs are so good!

You certainly come up with the most amazing soap flavours Kathy! I am sure your Christmas market will be a huge success - I especially love the sound of your Peppermint Bars!

I'd love to have a go at making soaps. Another project for my list when I retire from work! It must be so exciting thinking up the designs and recipes. It is really difficult finding nice soap for men, the woodland soap sounds just the ticket. I'd end up with a foaming mouth if I bought your brownie bars! x
