Where did the weekend go?

My hopes for having a 3-day weekend was a bit of stretch considering it didn't even feel like it was a 2-day one. We finally went to the beach for the first time this summer on Saturday - perfect weather! Then we met up with our camping mates to plan out next week's excursion. I'm really excited to go camping, just hoping that the weather will be ok.

I started working on a new batch of houses for wunderlust but I'm not 100% happy with it so I'll be tinkering with it for a little while longer. I also finished working on my linesheet (wholesale) but haven't heard back from the shop.

As for the recipe for the soaps - sorry guys, I wasn't ignoring your comments...
I haven't graduated from the melt & pour method so these are very easy to make. It's just a matter of being creative with fragrance oils, mixing and experimenting until you have the perfect amount. I bought most of my supplies from brambleberry. I've yet to find a base that I'm 100% happy with, but so far I like the LCP Clear Melt And Pour Soap base the best. As for the fragrance, I used the rice flower fragrance and mixed it with a little bit of oatmeal vanilla. I generally follow the 12ml of fragrance to every pound of base rule. The Shortbread one, I like to use the Buttercream Snickerdoodle fragrance mixed with a little coconut. If you're looking for more info, Anne Marie's blog is a treasure trove!
