Hi again got my swap parcel today and woohoo was i excited. Got a beanie knitted from Alpaca wool, a bracelet, loofah and loofah seeds. I also got a lovely note included with it explaining all the gifts. I am sooo impressed with the thought that went into this gift.:D
Just guessing if it was Tamandaco (spelling) if not I have noooo idea.:shy:
Hi Bobbee yes it was me was trying for turquoise but thats the closest I could get to it over here.
Still waiting for mine and cant wait. am also waiting for my apple trees to arrive this week. Should be an exciting week in my letter box this week.
I would also be into a xmas swap as well and thanks Lady B for organising this swap.
I got my seeds from eden seeds this year and giving Black Krim a try a friend here is tryng Brandywine that we also got from Edens. Havent seen the other two in the catalogue but the lost seed co has some different ones to.
I am still waiting for mine with anticipation and I sent mine off on Monday. Was really sick last week so hopefully that will be okay.
All the pics look fantastic.
I am still working on mine so sorry but it is taking me longer as life has gotten a bit busy here. Will be finished soon I promise.
Found my two milkyway moulds for you one is handmade on it the other is plain. If you want them just pm me
I tried that to no avail. I think it was probably the user…lol
I just find the milk cartons the easiest and most convenient for me. I wish I could use the moulds but got soooooo frustrated with them
I have that happen every now and then to my olive oil soap. I just leave it a bit longer and it all turns out okay in the end
It doesnt actually they blend so well together. Is my most popular soap and I put it in a calendula soap for sensitive skin.
The recipe I use is 2130gm of oil to which I use 60ml Lemon Myrtle eo and 30ml Clove eo. Have never had problems with this blend at all and as I said is by far my most popular (I cant keep up with it)
They always stuck in the moulds no matter what I tried. I even left them a week in there and still they wouldnt come out. I will have to search for them to see where they are if you want em
It definately makes life easier if you freeze it then use it thats for sure. I also dont scent mine either. Mainly for my daughters skin
I get my palm oil from New Directions but only after asking where they source it from.
The info they give me is that it is farmed and not from Malaysia or any rain forest currently under threat.
They have a website
Hope this helps
I use lemon myrtle Eo and put clove eo with it. Keeps the fragrance in my soaps for ages.
Is good to read all the different ideas with regard to various soap making.
I love making goatsmilk soap but find it hard to get fresh so I use a UHT variety that my local IGA gets for me. I freeze the goatsmilk first then make the soap with it. Keeps it nice and light.
I have used lots of different moulds but seem to always go back to the 1ltr milk containers.
I have the nizzy mould, the wooden log mould and some of the milkyway moulds. Just couldnt get on the with milkyway moulds no matter what I did.:(:tdown:
Most of my customers love the square shape of the milk container and I figure I am recycling to…[Read more]
My kids will definately not be getting a mobile phone until they can get their own or at least a second hand one that is prepaid when they are old enough. My son is 15 and is not interested atm if he wants to play a game he can use mine.
They dont feel they need one anyhow as they are never unsupervised. My son is 15 (with learning difficulties)…[Read more]
I am new here too but would love to joint the swap.
I am a very busy mother to two kids aged 14 and 7 (14 yr has autism so is a handful at times). I love to garden, knit, cook, make jams and chutneys etc. I also make soaps and body products etc.
I love anything handmade really but socks would be great but really anything is okay by me.
Will pm…[Read more]
