Making Soap

It almost looks like a treat doesn't it?
 
 
 
This is a brown sugar and oatmeal soap. The instructions are from Suzanne's site Chickens in the Road.
 
 
 
I tried the laundry soap too. It was not hard and made me wonder why I waited so long to try it.
 
 
 
This could become addictive! I am thinking of all of the combinations that I could come up with.
 
 
 
Spring babies are here! There are 2 geese, 2 ducks, and 3 chicks.

When I see the babies at the store, I want several of each, but have to remind myself that they will not stay this small long!

  1. I am so jealous!
    I want to make soap...I've not found a recipe that sounds good, and I've got the Littles all day during the week, so--no time.
    (excuses, I know...I should just do it!)
    Those little ducks and chicks look too cute.

  3. Making soap is such a fun and creative process. Good for you! You'll likely never buy soap again.

    Love love the little ones. I want to pick up a couple of ducks at the co-op soon.

    1. LOL!! they don't stay cute long!! I have to remember that the eggs are delicious though!!

      Thank you Dolores, but I just followed directions on how to make it!! It was not as hard as I had believed it to be. Guess that I had this idea that there was some mysterious secret to it and only certain people could do it! LOL!! Not so, and it was intersting watching the whole thing take place! Thanks for visiting !!!

I have been wanting to learn how to make soap for a long time and when I saw those yummy looking bars you made I knew the time is now. :) I went to Suzannes blog, read up on her "how to make soap" instructions and ordered everything I needed to get started. I'm going to be like a kid waiting for Christmas morning now. lol I can't wait TO MAKE SOAP. I'm going to start with 2 kinds. The Brown Sugar and Oatmeal, and the Vanilla Sugar Dreams. :D
