Today was a great day as it marked the arrival of my latest order from Bramble Berry- thirty pounds of soap base, new colorants, a pound of cocoa butter, and two new molds! Lugging the hefty box up the stairs wasn't fun, but I was so eager to get in it and get the stuff out. In addition to my order, I received a sample vial of their Lavender Chamomile Huggies fragrance, which smells just like my favorite bubble bath. The empty box was happily received by the cats after I'd taken my haul to the kitchen. I've had to hide away the cocoa butter because the SO keeps trying to steal it!
I tested out some of the new colorants, and I am really happy to be working with my favorite base again. Now I'm just left waiting for my other orders to come in; I am waiting on a couple more molds and about four pounds of shea butter. Once everything is here I'll have more stuff to try out and some Christmas presents to make. While I wait, I am working with the most recent batch of scents I received from Natures Garden Candles. I have some holiday scents that I can't wait to use so I can get more soaps up in my shop on Artfire.
Other than that, we're gearing up for Halloween here at home, although I've been rather slow in getting the place decorated this year. We're hosting a party to celebrate, but I wish we had more trick-or-treaters that came by. A bunch of kids moved in nearby, so maybe this year we'll get to hand out some candy. Heaven knows we don't need it!
