At long last, a package arrived today. Can't say I'm impressed with Australia Post, though. I heard a knock on the door followed by a thump. Opened the door several seconds later to discover the postman had knocked on the door, literally thrown the parcel AT the door without waiting for a response and left. Thanks for that.
Oh well, at least nothing was broken. Inside was...my new goat's milk soap making supplies!
That's right, Fanciful Creations (click on the link to go to the brand new Facebook page) is branching out. As well as my miniature bears, I will now be offering Goat's Milk Soaps and Soy Wax Candles. I used to make soaps and candles years ago and am exciting about getting back into it with new, better supplies and equipment. I got into it straight away this afternoon and whipped up two batches of soap. The goat's milk I'm using comes from Tasmanian goats which I'm thrilled about.
Leatherwood Honey and Oatmeal (using Tassie leatherwood honey and real oatmeal).
Lavender and Vanilla (using Tassie lavender oil and Mum's dried lavender for exfoliation).
I can't wait to make more, as well as get into the candle making once the rest of my supplies arrive. As well as all of that, I've been busy making new bears as well. This is Riona the Princess Bear and Eden the Gardening Bear.
Eden is the first bear I've made with my new blue fabric. I think the colour looks great.
So this post should really have gone on my Fanciful Creations blog, but I'm in the process of re-jigging things over there. I think I want to recreate that blog as a separate, stand alone page so it isn't linked back to my more personal space here. I just spent ages getting the Facebook page up and running, so head over to check it out for more pictures, lists of available fragrances, etc.
Phew! Between all of that, I'm exhausted! Clearly I'm not the only one around here who has had a busy day, however...
