Goat's Milk Oatmeal Soaps

Not everyone likes goat's milk oatmeal soap, but I think most of my customers do. We had a big sale and are almost sold out of the goat's milk oatmeal soaps during that sale. There will be more though, so don't worry about no more goat's milk oatmeal soaps being available!

Here is a picture of the goat's milk oatmeal soaps that are wrapped and ready to go.

In case you are wondering what the ingredients are, the soaps are made from water, goat's milk, sodium hydroxide, palm oil, coconut oil, beef tallow, olive oil, castor oil, oatmeal, soap fragrance.
Some of the older soaps also contain lard and peanut oil. I stopped using these oils because some might be allergic to them or have a conviction about their being in the soap. 

Some of the proceeds for this soap goes to Sanctuary Ministries, a ministry to help struggling women who are pregnant and need support.

New - Lemon-Pumice Soap

Here is a new soap I made a couple of days ago. It was made with the basic ingredients to make soap with, plus some pumice and some grated lemon peel. I added both the lemon FO and EO. The soap was colored with annatto.

I used a shoebox for the mold for the soaps pictured above. The others were made with the usual soap molds.

FO stands for fragrance oil, and EO stands for essential oil. Fragrance oils are made from essential oils combined with carrier oils. The carrier oils help with keeping the scent in the soap.

Bedtime Soap - Wonderful Scent

Tonight I decided to try something different. I made a light orange color soap and scented it with an essential oil put out by "Now" brand.

It smells so good I could wear this scent all the time, but since it is supposed to help with sleep, I better only use it at night!

Here is the oil I used to make this soap with:



I may take pictures of the soap once it is out of the mold. Hope it continues to smell as nice and as strong as it does now!

I think I will call this soap, 'Bedtime Soap'.

(I will receive commission for those who go to the amazon site from the link above, from any orders on amazon connected with that link. Thank you for those who have ordered through my links).

My First Dollhouse Floor

These pictures are not in order, but I am so excited about almost being done with this floor. To get the correct size for a room, I measured our dining room and divided the measurements by 12. Now to measure the size of a room in a finished dollhouse and see how close I got! The floor looks nice but I may give it one more coat of stain. It looks nicer with each coat I give it. It has had three coats of stain so far. I will take pictures when finished.





Now I want to make another floor, but will make it light brown or off white in color. I still have to see if this is the correct size, or if it will fit into a dollhouse. Next, will be figuring out how to make the walls. We start at the bottom and then go up.

My Crazy Creative Activity

Do not laugh at me! I do have some way out ideas, but as I have been studying the pins on Pinterest, I can see that I am not the only one. I have seen tutorials on how to make miniature items out of straws, paper clips, bottle caps, and sponges.
 With all that in mind, I have an idea with making cereal boxes for the doll house. First, I came up with a name for the make believe company that will produce the products for my miniatures. It will be called "Eternal Perspective" (E.P. for short). So my little cereal boxes will all have the E.P. logo on them. I am designing the cereal box right now. Rather than taking a name brand logo such as "Kellogg" I will make my own. I don't think it is proper to use a copyright name or trademark when designing a product that you want to sell. So, with that in mind, I need to have a homemade picture to put onto the tint cereal box. Last night, I spent a considerable amount of time looking for a picture I had taken of a bowl of cereal. Well guess what? I looked through every photo I had uploaded to Facebook and found nothing. In fact, my computer froze in the process and I decided to call it a night (this was after 2 am). Nothing. No picture of a bowl of cereal was on my computer either. Since I need a picture of a bowl of cereal to put onto my cereal box, I decided to get a bowl out and our some cereal in it with a couple of large pieces of dried fruit. Here is the pic. When I get the design for the front of the cereal box finished, I will post that as well.

I got the bowl of cereal picture onto the box. Here is the pic:

Of course, I have to make the rest of the box. All of these little details!
