Soap! *with pics this time*

So as I've mentioned once or twice... I've found easy ways to make soap. It's been easy and fun!! The worst part about it.... is cleaning the soap of the dishes used to make it, and the overpowering smells! hahaha!!!!!
When you make numerous batches, the combo of smells gets to me. And you have to use alcohol on it (not in it!!!) and that makes even more smells!

But it's fun and I'm gonna start trying to sell it.
But I've hesitated putting pictures of i on here because my sister follows my blog and she's getting some for Christmas.
AND because of schedules, she still hasn't gotten her presents from me, nor I from her. Sigh.... I'm becoming impatient, really.

Well I took some pics today of what I have made recently and have left after presents. There are still some that are in her presents that I'm not posting. So that's a plus. haha!!!

Hope you like them! And if you do... check out Soap Queen TV on youtube or brambleberry.com for DIY kits.

 this plaid soap looks complicated but it's not! 

 lemon soap! 

 random bars I had from left overs.

 total amount I have left. 

Papa Roach - Kick In The Teeth

Michael Jackson - You Can't Win

I love Michael Jackson, always have! This song is sooooooo catchy and fun!!!!!!
It came on my itunes and I just danced around the house while I made my soap. hahaha
Speaking of soap.... I will post pics of it after I can finally give it to my sisters for Christmas. I don't want any spoilers!!! heheh

Well enjoy the groove and get off your booottayyy.

Soap... do you wanna make it??


I am always seeing the cutest bars of soap on Pinterest and  I wondered if there was an easy way to make soap. I looked it up and came across the "old fashioned" way to make it.. with water, lye, oils, and etc. Sounds a bit EXPENSIVE and difficult. So I kept searching... and found a method called "melt and pour" soap making. You buy premade soap bases, and then add your own fragrance, color and molds to make WHATEVER you can THINK OF!!
Well there's a great site called BrambleBerry  where you can buy melt and pour soap kits and plenty of pre-made bases, fragrances, and colors.
And the lady, the Soap Queen, Anne Marie, has a greatttt youtube channel to learn all of it!
She answers a lot of questions, if you have any on youtube or twitter. I've found her very friendly!!!!
So if it's something you were looking for an easy way to make and make some birthday or Christmas presents (probably too late for this christmas, unless you live near a craft store.. I don't sadly..), I would check it out.
Just made my first batch (plaid soap kit) and had left over, so i made random bars for fun to sell to my friends.
Give it a shot! It's fun! AND EASY!!!!!

HANSON - Tonight

as you know i love hanson. always have.... well this song is off of their album Anthem (came out this past June.. be sure and pick it up!) and it has continued to stay one of my favorites. it's a great song about following your dreams, whatever they are, because you don't always get a second chance.

don't mind the video... youtube doesn't always have the best choices for songs that aren't singles!!!!!!!
