What do you do with yourself when....

....you take 3 full days off work with nowhere to go? Well, I don't know about you but if my Mojo's in town, then it's on! Can you say Soapathon?

This week I took Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as vacation days. Monday I made 12 lbs of soap and the same again on Tuesday (see pic).

In the pic (left to right: oatmeal milk & honey, Eucalyptus, Black Raspberry Vanilla, Lemon Ginger, Almond, Pomegranate Juice, Nag Champa, Tuberose, Unscented with Oatmeal)



Today if Mojo doesn't disappear on me, I plan to make a couple of facial soap bars. One will be with pureed cucumbers and the other with charcoal.

Happiness is....

Recently I was tagged by my wonderful cyber friend Pili to list 6 things that make my smile or make me happy so here goes:


1. The sound of children's laughter





2. Evening walks at my local beach



3. My home country (UK)



4. My family (I can't find a family picture ANYWHERE)!

5. The Christmas Season




6. Acts of kindness





...and my list could go on and on and would include making crafts, making soap, making ANYTHING, good food, good friends, parties, my kids smiles, hugs, good health, etc etc etc.

What makes you happy?
