Have I entered the world of Little House on the Prairie? On a rainy day last week, I decided to make soap. No, I didn't use animal fats—I'm not that hardcore—but I did pick some fresh lemon balm, oregano, and sage from our herb garden to add to the concoction.
I cut off a piece of soap brick from our handy soap-making kit (Life of the Party: Moisturizing Clear Glycerin Soap) and melted it using a double boiler method (put a glass bowl over a saucepan).
I added the herbs to bowls...
...and poured the melted soap into them. After they dry, I have the perfect gift for my parents :)

We are very excited to announce the grand opening of our Etsy shop, where you can find all our organic, custom-spun alpaca yarn for sale. Wholesale pricing inquiries can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Every fiber of this yarn was ethically harvested from our rescued alpacas as part of their regular herd health (shearings each spring ensure their comfort through warm summer weather). http://www.etsy.com/shop/betterfarm
