making things

well the good news is that i'm feeling a heck of a lot more creative than i was yesterday.

today =
x. making those lipbalms i've been wanting to make ! inspiration finally set in to stop looking for reipes and to just go do it. will probably make some moisterising bars too, because i have all the ingredients for it, although they'll be small; 100g each of cocoa butter & shea butter is not going to go far. my main thing today will be lipbalms. i can try them out over the weekend and if they're okay, i can start giving them to the girls at work to try out (i already have volunteers lined up to test out the things i make lol).
x. working on the circle journal of jen's

well that's it so far, but it's still 2 more things than i wanted to do yesterday ^^ although going to the cafe last night did help. i did some writing and got out of the house, and thats always nice.

i need to get some moulds so i can make some soaps (also some glycerine so i can try the melt & pour technique first, even though it sort of feels like cheating!) and candles. i have the wax & the wicks for the candles, but no moulds. but seeing as i don't have stearin either (which shrinks the wax so the candles are easier to remove from the moulds), maybe i'll just make my own moulds out of old containers, because then i can just cut them to remove the candles when they're set.

time to stop talking about it and just get to it. no-one else is home today (well this morning anyway) so i'm taking over the kitchen while i can ! shall report back (with photos) tonight.

much love to you all xoxo

    Six years of study = FINISHED. My last exam was today. I can't believe I've actually completed everything now. I'm so relieved and happy.
