Melt & Pour Soap
So, my daughter Bella has started a soap business. In my living room. (Which is where all the best businesses start.) Her dad is a big client, but we’ve been branching out. This kid is making money, y’all. Almost enough to pay for the Furby she’s been wanting.
We’ve been using the melt & pour method, because I’m too scared to let my little girl go all mad scientist with lye & chemicals. It’s been fun experimenting.
For example, this soap is vanilla fragrance and it’s filled with cupcake sprinkles. Will it make us sticky when we wash with it? Will it stain my porcelain after it gets wet? We’re not sure yet. Experiments are fun! As long as I don’t have to remodel the bathroom.
Update:The sprinkles’ color bleeds and looks gross and moldy after a day or two.
I haven’t even been blogging a year yet. This summer has been a blast…I’m sewing as much as ever, but we’ve added museum trips, business endeavors, recitals, and week long dance camps into the mix.
That’s why I’ve been posting less, and I think I like 1-2 posts per week better than trying to do 3-4. It gives me more time to write and plan my posts.
Thanks for visiting my little piece of internet real estate:)
