Soaping And Other New Adventures

Ok, so it's really just soaping that's the new adventure, but, I am loving the playing and the learning that is going along with it.  I guess my other biggest adventure is getting my craft stuff organized.  That in and of itself is a huge task.  I just went through my beads and freecycled a ton of them.  The best part is that I still have a ton left, but they are not ones that I am ready to get rid of just yet.  I have pretty much sorted though my sewing stash and I had sorted through my yarn stash, but I think I need to revisit my yarn stash and see if there is more to get rid of.  I did finish Michael's granny square afghan so I can now get rif of that yarn since I can't really picture myself using it.  I don't think I've posted a picture of it yet.  Next post, I will post pictures of my sorted out and organized fabric, Michael's afghan, and of course my soaps.  And spreaking of soap, I have moved all my soap making stuff to the basement, now that we have a new sink!  That is all organized!

My next task is to take on my paper making and my polymer clay and other craft supplies, and probably even craft books.  I have gone through my stamp collection and have a bunch to get rid of, most likely freecycle.  I need and want to go through my paper and other craft supplies and really try to have things that I will use, not just have things to have things.  I also want them to be better organized so that I can actually use them without having to spend time trying to find them and then going out and buying more only to find that I already had what I needed before I re-bought it.

I mentioned that I am offivally the MA Chapter Leader for Enchanted Makeovers.  I am so looking forward to learning more and doing more.  I have my first conference call the end of the month.  It feels so professional.  I am so excited to be part of this.

The other new adventure is being good to myself.  I am going to try not to be offended, hurt, or have other negative feelings about myself when it seems like people are responding to blog posts, instagram  posts, facebook post, tweets, etc.  I want to remember the comments that I do get (and I appreciate the time people take to comment) and remember that people actually may read and just not like or write something to things that I post.  I am also really going to try to follow through with being healthy.  I started to do well, but then summer hit and it all went down the tubes.  It's time to get my act together and get back to what I need to do for me!



  1. OH my gush!!! tell me more tell me more! What soap info did you use to get started? I am on that cliff, looking to jump, but not sure just how. We ran out of soap and are seriously down to one bar, but I refuse to order our usual batch from my co-op club because then it will just ensure I don't have to start making my own ;) I am so curious!!!!!

  2. T.J. go for it. Read my latest post and if you have questions, ask!!!!!
