Its a hot one in my corner of the world to day and I dont know about you but all I want to do is ...nothing when its hot like this. I have a few project I want to start but have lost my mojo today. I really want to make some of those cute strawberry sachets....oh and candles...well melts actually.....I go through so many melts. Totally love having all the beautiful smells in my home. I am forever buying them (melts) and thought why don't I learn to make them for myself. I found a candle starting kit on ebay (they dont just do a melt one) and then I saw a soap making kit also...so I bought both lol. I decided my soaps were going to be pink roses with rose petal sprinkled on top. I read all the instructions...the colour looked perfect...the smell was divine...and the insructions said sprinkle petals in the bottom prior to pouring...which I did.....and as I am pouring the petals are floating to the top and making the soap around them go green. So now I have pretty rose shaped and smelling soaps with fungus green looking petals in the base....yuck. (Piccies below and any advice welcome ) Don't think I will be making soaps again. I havent made the melts yet but they are on my to do list. I even have pretty fairy floss fragrance which I cant wait to try. Maybe by next Christmas I will have perfected both good enough for pressents.
