Yesterday after work I went to JoAnne's to get some cheesecloth because I always seem to need it but never have it, some netting type fabric for tying up the bath bombs I made that have flower petals in them because floating flotsam and jetsam that stick all over you in the tub really isn't that enjoyable, and some ribbon for tying the fabric around the bombs. Some of the bombs have cracks in them and I am not happy about that that one bit. Well, I am a beginner in the bomb business and haven't perfected my recipe or technique yet. And I have all kinds of ideas for new and different ones. They still fizz well and once they hit the water the oils are released into the tub, the dead sea salts melt and the scent fills the bathroom. I really like them. Mike does too and said his skin felt "great" after taking a bath with one. He's not really a bath person, but we were doing a test run of the bombs and... into the tub he went.
And, while at JoAnne's I decided to get some yarn to make a snood similar to the one Leia posted about here. She kindly sent me different views of it to see what it looked like. It's basically just a loose tube that can be worn around the neck or up over the head. I really like the unstructured look of it. There were so many yarns I wanted to buy that I had to really control myself. One project at a time is the way I need to go. Heavens, I am already spread thin and now I'm going to make a snood too!
Through a suggestion from my friend Caroline, I am thinking about totally revamping my bath and body labels. I won't have time to do it for gifts this year, but she gave me some new ideas to think about. It will be a fun project creating a new look - and might require new jars and bottles as well.
