Soap! Melt and pour!
I went to Hobby Lobby and bought some MP soap making supplies there, but the price came out the same FOR LESS than I would be able to purchase online at Wholesale Supplies Plus, INC . My online order came to just under $20, with shipping at a flat rate of just under $7 (UPS), for a GT of $26 and some odd cense. I ordered one 2lb block of clear MP, one 2lb of silk & shea butter (YUMMY!!! The reviews for this one is spectacular), clear blue soap color-solid, white sparkle powder (for the WOW effect), blue powder (for salts and fizzies), a sea shell candy mold (for the inlays), and 1lb of citric acid (for the fizzies). MY Goddess! That is a lot for so little!!! Now I don't know if I wanna take back what I purchased at HL or keep it to experiment until the good stuff gets here. I purchased a Soap kit, some extra soap, two scents, and a candy mold...for the same price as the online order. The online order is shipped UPS so it will take anywhere from 3-7 days to get here, and then there is the gamble of actually being here when it arrives to sign for it (how inconvienent!). Do I wanna wait? Good things come to those who wait?
I can get higher quality supplies through the mail for cheaper than local costs...how backwards is that?! I may just keep the scents I puchased at $2.99 for a 1/2 oz bottle. I purcahsed Red Rose & Thyme and Lilac. I really like the Red Rose & Thyme scent and the Lilac is to die for!
So for my spa sets I will be making a bath mit, a soap bag (for the MP soap I will be making), a headband, and a textured washcloth. Not sure which cloth design I will use but I like Dolly The Dolphin. Not much out there for ocean themes. I'll have to design on that says Relax. Maybe I will thow in a copy of my sea waves CD as well with instructions on "How to Pamper Yourself" with practical herbal remedies. :) EEEEEee!!
Well anyhoo, big plans for handmade gifts this year. I hope they are gladly received.
Until next time...
