*blinks* You scare newbies with talk like that. Just saying. Seizing, broken, non solidifying soaps. It’s enough to give me a complex.February 14, 2017 at 9:41 pm #20309
The soap gremlins won’t bother you Twin *she says soothingly…*
You’ll do just fine!! That’s why we keep telling you to keep it simple the first time.February 14, 2017 at 9:58 pm #20313
Uh huh. Remember who has your number of crazy stuff happens. I’m just saying. Keep it simple, they say. It’ll be fine. Don’t you hate seizing, they say…don’t panic. Aaaaaahhhhhh! 😜February 15, 2017 at 9:11 pm #20366
Blended, strained and have strawberry purée freezing in thin sheets. I used some rectangular plastic lids from takeout containers that are about a half inch deep. I figured that was thin enough to sprinkle lye on and have it covered pretty uniformly. Now, I need to get on soapcalc and get my numbers! Woo hoo! One step closer to chocolate strawberry soap!February 16, 2017 at 4:58 pm #20376
Yay! Is it wrong I want to make this? I need chocolate soap. Need it!February 17, 2017 at 12:33 pm #20388
Yep, one day, I will get around to actually making this……life needs to stop messing with me! I need time to craft!!February 17, 2017 at 8:40 pm #20397
What is this time of what you speak? I’ve heard of it once or something.February 18, 2017 at 11:59 am #20406
It is a mythical creature that exists in the realm of……OK, my brain went blank. But, you get the idea! It can be hard to carve that time out when life is making its demands known. Kind of like a newborn baby…..waaaaaa, I need food! Waaaaaaa, I need to be cleaned! Waaaaaaaa, hold me!February 18, 2017 at 10:22 pm #20424
Wash, I need a month to create with pay! Did it work? Dang it!February 19, 2017 at 3:36 pm #20448PennyParticipant
A month? I need the rest of my life.
Spent the day yesterday making soap, lotions and then sourdough bread. By the time8pm rolled around I was passed out on the couch while some TV program rang on. And now? It’s back to work for the week then my life goes back to some normal scheduling where I’ve lots of free time to play!February 19, 2017 at 4:36 pm #20451
Oh, I want to be paid to stay home and have fun. Since I’d have to win the lottery to pull that off, a month would need to suffice. Lol
You have been busy. I have been touching my new toys and researching all the stuff so I can prep my Wednesday fun. Beware the blonde who will create lotions, gels and more. Bwahahaha!February 20, 2017 at 12:17 pm #20470
The only thing I made this weekend was the Fizzy Foaming Face Scrub. Can I tell you how fun that stuff is ?!?! Soooo fun!
I have a few errands and such to do this week but hoping to get SOMETHING made this week! Been spending past two days on Ancestry. They were having a freebie weekend where all European records were free to look at. Since all my ancestors are European, I wanted to take advantage of that. This stuff is so fun yet so headache inducing!! And the further back you go, the worse the record keeping is, so sometimes you’re just shooting in the dark. So, the maybe good news is, one of my relatives might be an original Jamestown settler. How cool would that be?!? I’m still looking into it and hoping to figure it out before the Euro records shut down on me.February 20, 2017 at 6:02 pm #20473
Oh, how awesome! I need to find out about my great great gram from Bretagne, France area. Plus my great great gramps from Holland. Don’t tempt me. Don’t. *screams* I’ve been hiding from it. Lol
I got my goggles, my gloves, I need soap pot, lye, and then I’m ready. Omg, I cannot wait!February 20, 2017 at 9:18 pm #20477
My heritages is English, Scottish (just found this out tonight! A titled Lady from Scotland with a castle and everything!), Irish, French from mom’s side and German, Swiss, Swedish on dad’s side. It’s so fun to look at but so time consuming!! I’m seriously considering doing the genetic DNA testing to see who I might be linked to. It would definitely make this process go faster, maybe, possibly….February 20, 2017 at 11:53 pm #20480
You and me both. I swear my family slept their way to America. Lol
The DNA test could narrow down some research patterns.
You have to stop me. I’m filling my cart with tons of soap stuff. Omg, I’m going nuts.
