Soaping to my hearts content :0)

Having fun :0)

Limealicious I have made with the Lime Fragrance Oil from the Wonderful Bramble Berry, I am so loving this oil and cannot wait to slice this up and get it into the shower :0)

Well as the world is aware Queensland has experienced the most devastating flooding in its history. I am one of the fortunate ones who can say my family and home are okay. I did get flooded in at work for 2 days and that was a little scary. For those that don't know I work in aged care and was doing a nightduty shift aware that I may not be able to leave I packed a bag and so glad I did. Nightshift by torch is not easy :0). I want to say that the SES (Emergency Services Teams) were amazing and the whole time we were flooded in they kept a close eye on us and would row almost up to the building and chat and let us know how it was all looking out on the new lake we had aquired at the back of us. Bless the elderly who remained calm and assisted where ever and however they were able. I was in awe of the concern they expressed not for themselves and how they would cope should we have to evacuate them but for the families out there that had lost precious family members and homes.
What a great community we have.............people helping strangers and giving whatever they can to help those that have very little left.
I am delighted to know that toiletries are need.................Including soap!!!!!!  I am now a woman with a mission :0)
So many of my soapy friends noticed my lack of online time and asked after me.............Thank-you I was so touched by all your messages and emails I am fine, and dry. My heart aches for those that have suffered the losses.
Today I want to share a soap that I made in memory of my Father who was a big fan of Old Spice, this is Bay Rum but it does remind me somewhat of Old Spice.............For my Dad who left me with many pleasant memories.

Time to have a Play

The Christmas break has been lovely and I have had some time to just 'play' which has been lots of fun.......One thing I have wanted to try is making soap with balls in it after I was inspired by a video by the hugely talented Tiggy from Future Primative.
