Grapefruit 

Sorry I’ve been a bit slack in posting lately! Things are a little crazy as we are hoping to move shortly. Don’t worry, we’re not going far!
This morning however, I am chilling out in my craft room with a cup of lemon and ginger tea while I look at what needs to be done today and what ingredients I need to order. Off the top of my head, I know I definitely need to order some grapefruit oil. I also need to start making body butters for the June Summer Market in Chalfont St Peter, which really isn’t that far away now! ☀ 

Home Made Stamp

We’ve got a few Christmas fairs coming up shortly, and I recently bought some new burlap to cover our stall table, and so I needed to find a way to get our Soap Cabin name onto it, this time so that it is big enough to see at a distance, and so that the letters line up.

I basically got 2 packs of sponge letters from The Works and stuck them onto card with extra tacky glue. Once dry, I cut the card so that I had the individual words, and then I dabbed my black ink pad onto the letters and practiced stamping onto some pink paper before I do the final stamp onto the burlap table cover. (I’ll share that later after I’ve done it). Rubber stamping would do a better job, just because the sponge compresses quite a bit, but we’ll see what happens!

 

Crafty Afternoon 

Yesterday was a bit of a sleepy Saturday. I was quite tired from a long week plus recovering from a cold, and after having breakfast at the Breadhouse in Chalfont St Peter and a short walk around the common, I came home and decided to get my card making kit out and replenish my stock seeing as the Christmas fairs are fast approaching! I should really have been making a start on my regular monthly soap order, but the body was not willing!
