I know it's wednesday, not that confused! but just getting round to posting about the great evening I had with some lovely lasses in Skipton.
Over the years I've fallen out with toiletry manufacturers as they use chemicals which we know do not do us any good, and as a consequence have had to learn how to make toiletries and skin care products myself.
The gorgeous gals I craft with wanted to know how to do this so we organised a few lotionas and potions workshops to show them the ropes.
Monday was the second of three and we set to making a Spa smellies set
The most expensive item here is the bottle in the middle (not the shower gel, just the bottle) The candle in the wooden box, the jar for the bath salts and the washmit were all from my favourite shop, poundland and altogether these things will make a lovely set for a Christmas present.
The candle was primed with gesso then coloured with TH distress inks and stamped with SU shell stamps which were roughly coloured with more ink. We bashed it around a bit, rubbed it down with a nail file and altered a pounds worth of candle into something that looks so shabby it could've been on the beach forever!!
Along with that we made White Horse Sea Foam shower gel, Body Soak Sea Salt, and a fantastic melt and pour soap which we havn't named yet, all with a lovely fresh smell, evocative of the sea.
I had a great night girls, thanks so much for your company and your appreciation.
Right, I'm up almost up to date now!
Hope you're having a fun week
