Although I'm sure it isn't really true, I felt like I was just going, going, going non-stop this weekend.

  • Shipped off Ebay orders
  • Posted stuff on Ebay
  • Posted stuff on Etsy
  • Made stitch markers
  • Made soap
  • Finished knitting a scarf
  • Did Laundry
  • Cleaned out the refrigerator
  • Caught up on freelance web stuff
  • Worked on my Second Life shop

I had ordered some new soap molds and fragrance oils a couple of weeks ago, and finally got them out yesterday and made soap.

I made:

  1. Cucumber Melon (the green)
  2. Coconut Lime Verbena (white)
  3. Rosemary Mint (swirled green)
  4. Nag Champa (purple)
  5. Herbal Orange (orange flecked)
  6. Lemongrass fish (fish)

The thinner bars tend to warp slightly as they dry, so I turn them over, but I like the way the fishes' tails turn up.

I also made a few new things that I put up on my Etsy shop (and reduced prices on a few things), some of which were these space alien stitch markers:

That one at the bottom right looks like it's trying to get away . . .

The soaps are sooo pretty! Good enough to eat. Umm...well, maybe not. hehe

everything looks wonderful! I found some terrific soap molds (stamps?) at Michael's that I use on polymer clay for mokume gane, in flower shapes, hearts, stars, and some kind of mosaic shape. Check it out if you haven't already... I paid $5 for a set of five, I think.

Willa, I love your soaps, they are so pretty and the fragrances sound heavenly. Where did you find your fragrances? I haven't seen any like those in Michaels or the Hobby Lobby. Those are about the only stores in my area that sell soap making supplies.

I bought the fragrance oils online from Brambleberry and Snowdrift Farms:
