The idea seemed good, but in practice, it wasn’t as much so. So, we won’t be on Artfire or Etsy afterall. I’ll continue to post our creations here. It’s good for our homeschool records, if nothing else. 🙂
I thought I’d show a photo of Tadpole #1 working on soap making.
And lest you think the other Tadpole wasn’t helping, he was…just not with soap. He was “shelling” our homegrown popcorn:
To show the size of one of the little LEGO soaps (there are 3 of them in each package), here’s a photo of the “real thing” and the soap together. The one on the left is, obviously, the real brick, and the one on the right is the soap.
Here are some of the soaps that Tadpole #1 and Momma Frog made for the holidays:
Litsea Cubeba is a related to the laurel, rosewood and cinnamon trees. This essential oil has a pleasing citrus scent and is said to be great for skin care, particularly oily skin. There is currently research being done on its calming effects.
Instead of handing candy, why not give kids something that not only won’t rot their teeth, but will help them want to wash up after touching sticky candy?
Tadpole #1 made these yummy smelling skull and crossbones soaps.
Each set comes with one skull and one crossbones (weighing a bit over 1oz), and costs $1.50 in a clear plastic baggie or $3.00 if you want them in a cute, handmade Halloween fabric bag.
These are the bag choices:
They make adorable party favors!
They’re finally done! Since I made these without the boys’ help, I posted the whole story, along with more photos, at my site: http://demetersdance.wordpress.com/2008/09/13/sushi-soaps/
It’s been crazy-busy for us in the summer. Life just never slows down.
The Patriotic Soaps are all gone – well, except for one, but we’re keeping it. 🙂
We’ve been busy harvesting and weeding. The wild blackberries are wonderful this year. We’ve frozen a whole bunch already.
The peach tree is loaded, and the fruits are ripening…
Just in time for Flag Day and the Fourth of July – our Patriotic Soaps are perfect for your Star-Spangled needs!
Handmade from the finest ingredients, these luscious soaps with a pleasing scent of Green Garden feature a red star and a blue star embedded in a white base. The tiny dash of glitter in the soap is reminiscent of holiday fireworks.
Complete your patriotic decor with these fun and festive soaps!
A rectangular bar (4 oz) is $3; an oval bar (3 oz) is $2.50
