Soap making with friends!

This is a quite delayed post of a great time I had with some friends making lye soap! This stuff was extremely smelly!! SO glad we did it outside! This was fun and I hope to do it quarterly so we can have handmade soap all year for everything from our bodies to our laundry detergent! Here are some pics:

The set up!

Hi! I just came across your blog and I have enjoyed reading through it. The soap making post was great! I want to do that with my boys...hopefully soon. And the "meth lab" in your yard had me giggling for a while. ;)

Looking forward to reading more,

Hi Katie! Glad to hear of another homeschooler in Kansas! I had been alittle behind on my blog as of late due to cram-crafting to get some items ready to sell for a friend at a local craft show. Hopefully will be back to posting more often now. The soap making was fun, hope to do more of it in the future! Might do some easier glyserin soap inbetween the more extream stuff though! God bless!
