We moved to the Portland, Oregon, area about 1 1/2 years ago. We hired an LA moving company to get our things here. Almost all our things did get here, but as near as we can figure we are missing at least 3 cartons and a stick fan.
Of course, the 3 cartons missing contained my sanity. Yup- my crafting supplies. Over the last few months I’ve been itching to get back into melt-and-pour soaping. It’s a solo project that is soothing and relaxing to me.
So on Sunday, I went to the craft store and purchased 1 mold with 4 cavities, a 5 lb. block of Mango/Shea butter soap and cellophane bags to wrap the finished product in.
After dicing a good portion of the soap block into ice-cube sized pieces, I melted, I poured, I colored and scented. Yummy!
The green ones are Green Tea/ Cucumber bars. And the pink are Lavender. After 2 hours they were ready to pop out and wrap for gifting.
After 4 more sets, I will be ready for my neighborhood’s Holiday Bazaar. My goodies include: Soap, Bath Salts, Peppermint foot soak, and a Sugar Mint scrub. Fingers crossed!
