Crafty Catchups

Over the last week, I have been so busy that I hadn't had a chance to catchup. So, here is some of the latest.

I tried my hand at some colorful bath bombs. They were fun.

I also made some more melt and pour soaps. I added some good stuff in these. One had chamomile and honey added and the other had some rose buds and green tea. I am getting up the nerve to try the lye soap making.

A week or two ago, I decided to try planting in some bags of soil. Can it be? No digging up my clay. This is what it looked like when I planted. I already have stuff coming up. I will get updated pics soon. I will have to show you a pic of the broke down baby pool I planted salad stuff in. Recycling at its best - redneck style!

My radishes have started getting big enough to eat for sure. The taste is great! I am going to attempt to cook some of these. I read that they are like an onion and will caramelize. You can grill them in some foil. Look it up.
Last weekend, I decided to get something on my baby's windows. We only had window blinds. I wanted to do something that looked like a toddler and less infant. I got 6 yards of a robot fabric, and I am on a mission to add it to everything in his room. I started with adding material trim to some valances. The sheers on the window really helped. I plan on making a comforter, and some pillows or throw animals. I should have enough material to go awhile.

Your soaps are beautiful. Miss you girl, we need to get together.

I love the soaps! What did you use for your green tea, btw? I've been thinking about doing one but not quite sure what I want to use just yet.
Also, we're moving back to Houston in September. The girls and I are planning a garden in our new back yard. I'm sure that I'm going to have lots of questions for you. So fun! ;-)

Hey Melanie, I actually just put green tea in it. I cut open a tea bag and measured it out. Pretty cool. I had heard you can use stuff out of your pantry so I gave it a whirl.

I hope once you move to Houston that we can all find our way to visit and catch up.
