Happy Memorial Day!

I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend! I know I have! My son's 15th birthday was Saturday so we had a cookout for him. Today we are going to have another cookout for Memorial Day...any excuse to cookout works for us!I didn't get too many goodies made last week with the Dancing with the Stars and Idol finalies I was busy (shhhhh). I did work a little on some soaps. I have the cutest primitive soap holder in my bathroom and usually have the aged grungy soap on there. Since I have an unhealthy obsession with stars, I thought I needed to put some "star power" in the bathroom.
I made two batches of these cute star shaped soaps. The first was the regular looking soaps. I thought guests would be more willing to use the "cleaner" looking soap! haha

The other was the old grungy looking soap.

I was so happy with how they turned out! They smell sooo good too!

Now, I wonder where else I can put some "star power!"

Candles, candles and more candles!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mothers Day Weekend! Mine was rather eventful but I think that is becoming the norm around here!

This weekend I received an order from an Ebayer needing a rather large order of candles. I was so excited! Nothing like getting that yummy scent throughout your house .....NICE! I worked on them for a while Saturday night and finished them up Sunday afternoon. She even order a few Rose scented candles with the grubby texture! I had never made a rose grubby but there is a first time for everything!
I also made a batch of Apple Cinnamon candles ....
my favorites were the little grubby tapers....

So at the end of the day, I got to spend the day doing what I love and the house smelled amazing!

Now I just have to get busy making some cute items to put on the box of rusty bedsprings I got as a gift! Can't wait to share what I come up with!
