Storm of the Year.

On Wednesday, April 27, 2011, The South was hit with devestation.  Alabama suffered the worse in these storms.  Tornadoes hit through several counties and close to 200 died in this storm.  Tuscaloosa was one of the worse cities hit with the highest death toll.  The tornado was almost a mile wide and was on the ground for over five minutes.  In that short period of time, homes were lost, businesses gone, people were injured and the devestation is unbelievable.  Trees look like broken matchsticks.  Homes were leveled.  It truly looks like a war zone there.  Sadly, Tuscaloosa was not the only place hit.  Dekalb County suffered the second most deaths on that day.  Cullman once again suffered disaster.  Words cannot express what these towns and people have gone through.  Other counties went without power for a few days but that does not compare.  People have banned together to help those who were less fortunate and they are still looking for any help, supplies, support and prayers from others.  Let's remember those who have suffered some loss during these storms. Alabama was not the only state hit with these storms or had fatalities.  These are the times that America needs to show that we stand behind our people and are there when we need us to be.  God bless you all  My prayers go out to everyone.

Newest products from last weekend

I have been a busy little beaver lately.  I am trying to get enough products for some up-coming craft shows and Farmer's Market.  My latests products have been soap and some bath salts.  My next creating session will be for sugar scrubs, lotion, smelly jellys and some more novelty soaps.  Come back by  in about a week and see what else I have made.  I have made cupcake bath fizzies before but was never really happy with the "iciing".  I have finally mastered icing!  Yay!  I had a request to make a soap that had annointing oil in it and I made a batch that came out successful.  I was not sure how the soap would react with the oil but it did fne and it does smell wonderful.  My kitchen table is covered with my latest soaps and will soon move them to the racks.  Thanks for stopping by and looking.

Satsuma Cut and Bath Salt Sundaes

Here is a picture of the Satsuma cut.  It smells sooo good.  I citrisy fresh scent, nice for the Summer.  And here are the bath salt sundaes that I made.  I need to work on the "fosting" but I still think that they look cute.  I made these using Imagine Base from Nature's Garden and Melt and Pour soap.  Two of them I used Shea Aloe butter and Melt and Pour soap.  It just sets up too fast for me to work with it.  I am gouing to make some cupcake soaps and am going to try making the "fosting" with cp soap.  I am hoping that I can do this tomorrow after I get off from work.  Anyway, here they are.

Newest Products from this weekend

Well I was able to make a couple of things this weekend.  I made a batch of bath salt sundaes.  I need to work on the "whipped topping" but they still came out pretty good.  I also made another batch for my luxury line.  Satsuma, smells soooo good.  It's has kind of an orangy scent to it but it is a light fresh scent.  This will make a nice Spring/Summer addition to your arsenal of bath and body products.  For some reason it took a looooooong tme to trace and I wanted to do a textured top.  I had to wait over an hour to be able to get some kind of texture and am fairly pleased with the results.  It is orange on top with a little bitt of cooper in it (not sure how much it will show up) and the bottom of the bar is white.  I will pos pics of it when I cut it  Here is a preview.
