We have used some pockets of time over the last few weeks to do some making, both for use in our home and for holiday giving.
New this year: bath bombs! We made one experimental batch, which was fun and easy - and another for gifting.
I have also been doing a little more experimenting with my soap making. I have made four batches this year: peppermint , calendula, lemongrass and oatmeal & honey. I have been trying out some layering techniques and experimenting with colorants, exfoliants and textures. I am pretty happy with the results.
We also made a large batch of homemade fire starters for our own wood-stove fires and more to give (a very practical gift in our north woods).
We have had fun so far - and I do have a couple more projects on my list for the upcoming weekend - stay tuned!
