Holiday Cookies

So I opted out of making B&B for the guys in my family and decided that cookies would be better. . . this is my take on the PB Cookies that Bakerella did in her blog.

Peanut Butter Cookies, with Chocolate spooned over and topped with chopped peanuts. The salty sweet combo can not be beat!!

Babies on the brain. . .

So I have been weird the past few weeks, can't sleep. . food makes me nauseous. . . stuff like that. Well this morning while I was trying to sleep Kenny puts this thought in my head "Maybe you are pregnant"

I seriously doubt that I am, but it is a possibility. . . gosh I don't think that we are ready for a baby! I mean with everything going on and I'm always fretting over money. . .even though we don't have to worry. I mean we aren't rich or anything but our bills get paid and we have a little left in the bank. . . but a baby would change all that. Don't get me wrong, I would love to be a mother, but I just don't know if I am "Mother" material. . .and I know that Kenny would make a great Dad.

I just can't get the thought out of my head now. . . and part of me wants it, the loving I want a baby to nurture side. But the other "I live in reality" side is just screaming that there is no way we could handle it with our work schedule.

It would make our mothers happy though. . .lol. . . to "finally" have a grandchild.

If I'm still like this next week I'll get a test. . .now to try not to think about it.

Snowed in, so I'm playing

Since I got snowed in, well iced in really, I'm at home bored out of my mind.

So I started playing around with some M&P soap. And I'm kinda excited about what I made. Pardon the crappy pictures. My camera just has not worked right since I took it to the beach. I promise that everything looks better in real life :) I really need to get a lightbox, and a better camera.

First up is my Sugar Scrub Cubes!
I am really excited about these, and they smell great!
I scented them with Apricot Freesia and wow, I am so loving this scent.
These were made with a combination of Goats Milk soap and Sugar.

They are a new twist on an old favorite, Sugar Scrubs. No more putting your hand in a jar of a sugar slurry and having to worry about cross contaminating the scrub with shower water. Just take one cube into the bath/shower with you, squish it in your hand and lather away. It like a combination of sugar and a lotion like lather that feels great on the skin.

I will follow up with some soaps that I made.

And yes that is my awesome Olive Green Scale, so retro it is cool again :D

w00t! I have mastered the HTML demons!

lol, I'm not good at HTML, I don't claim to be a HTML guru. . . but I think I did a pretty good job re-doing my blog. I was in a stripy-purply mood :D

Lip Balm Template . . . free for everyone

So as I posted earlier I am super excited about making a lip balm label template with 20 labels per page. Well I found a site to upload the document so I can share it with you all!

Please note that the labels that I use are full sheet labels, pretty much one big sticker.

MS Publisher Version

MS Word Version

I suggest that you do a test print on a regular sheet of paper first, don't wanna waste a label!

Lip Balms. . . a new found joy

So I have finally got around to making some of the holiday gifts for my family. First up was lip balms, I am so excited about how easy and fun they are to make! I think that they turned out ok, I only made 10 tubes (a test batch) to check the flavoring. I def need to add more, but other then that I am really happy with the outcome.

What makes me an extreme dork is that I made a template and can fit 20 labels per sheet. . . and this excites me! That is only .003 cents a label! Could it get much better. . .I don't think so!

BTW here is a pic, kinda blurry cause I took it with my cell phone. Playing around with some label designs.
