Embedding Awesomeness

These past couple of weeks has been super hectic! Getting ready for back-to-school for two teenagers is not for the faint of heart! Clothes and school supply shopping took a couple of days. My daughter received her driver’s license and started her senior year of high school. I have played taxi to my son, getting him back and forth to football practice each day. We are still trying to find a reliable used car for my daughter – it is amazing what some people are trying to sell as “reliable”. The most exciting news is that we finally bought a house. We are supposed to close September 14th; keeping fingers crossed there are no named storms in the Atlantic. Without homeowners insurance we are unable to close, and insurance companies will not write any policies with a named stormed present. Whew!

I was able to squeeze in some time to play with some melt and pour soap. My results are pictured to the left and right. I have to say that I am usually a cold process soap person and find CP much easier then melt and pour. I have much respect for those who are able to create works of art with melt and pour. Some time ago, I saw the coolest project on Soap Queen TV. I broke up this project into two days and have to say that I am very happy with the results. If you would like to create this super cool bar of soap, Anne-Marie (Soap Queen) gives great instruction below. Thank you for such a cool idea.
