of course more soaps

bath bombs

I just finished an order of 60 bath bombs. Not my best work but it is done. I still do them manually because I can not get my bomb press to work. It was very humid in my oven from the bread I baked this morning.(BTW for french crusted bread you put water in the oven to steam it up). I just caught the bomb before they fizzed on me.I was supposed to spend the day resting to get over the flu but I could not watch the View one more second.
The other pic is the view of the ocean from my kitchen. Note the inspiration for the bomb color.

Edamame ( soy beans)

I love these and more importantly my kids eat them. They are very easy to grow and are an extremely healthy food. I just boil in salt water for about five minutes; shell and eat.

I also using a little soy bean oil in some of my tester soaps and I am loving the results.

My kids now drink only soy milk too. There has been a lot of studies showing the increase of allergies due to drinking cows milk. It is not really the milk but all the crap they feed the cows.

Google soy beans, it is worth a try.

Here they are. My little soapers. My eldest cuts the soap and my youngest just looks cute as we try to sell.

They are not allowed in my soap building because of the lye( which they call factor X).

I hope one day to be a full time soaper. I have more fun for that than my job.

I believe in living life to it's fullest. From 2006, it seems like someone I knew has died every other week. I just attended my boss' funeral yesterday. I am still not over it.

On a happier note, there is one of my soaps. I am changing the look this year. I will have new pics when I buy a new camera.

Whitney-Thomas and Max' s mom

I have 2 great boys ages 5 and 9. I guess most parents feel like I do. We live in the lovely Bahamas with our little poodle.
