Patchouli Tattoo Soap

I was never a big fan of Patchouli, but a one of Christopher's best friends mom loves patchouli so I had to try it out. The smell is light but un-mistakenly Patchouli. I actually have decided that I like the smell now. It has a very earthy smell, not perfumery at all.

The Chris G Show and Whipped Soap

Well its official my house is messy. We decided to install wood floors and I can't tell you how disorganized that made my already disorganized house. I have been able to get some soap made. I made some whipped soap and so far so good. I have tried it in the shower and I must say with just a little tiny dip with your bath poof and it is suds galore. I am not putting it up for sell yet I want to see if it holds in the whipped form. I will be making some cream soap soon which is very simular to the whipped (Just not whipped).

The Cream and whipped cream soap I do in a crock-pot. They both use Potassium hydroxide and sodium hydroxide for the saponification process. After it comes to trace you actually cook it longer.

After cooking it for several hours its ready to whip. I use my kitchen Aid for this.

This batch is scented with Apple Jack and so far is very creamy and fluffy.

Christopher posted another web show in honor of Easter. Forgive me this was when we were putting in wood floors so the house is messy and the video editing once again is not great. Christopher forgave me, but he did say that I would need to improve.

Making More Cupcakes and Boxes for them

I am selling what cupcakes I made and need to make more. I also have made some really cute cupcake boxes for them. These have already been sold by special request but I was really happy with how the boxes turned out. THANK YOU CRICUT. I love my new toy and it has been making my life easier in making tags, cards, and Cupcake boxes. I love the window feature. I used a cupcake design and then glued printed velum for the window.
