Busy weekend

This is my Goat's Milk. I am waiting to hand paint these. I don't know where I will get the energy, but I will paint them. This maybe the only bars I ever do. But atleast I will try it.

Below are Angel Wing Bars. I love the scent of these. My daughter just loves the color! She is a pink girl. Has been for all her life. I guess they are okay. I am not crazy for the color but the smell is Great!

I love Roses! No matter what kind, what color! If it is a rose, Arnita is loving it. I have 5 rose bushes in my front yard. I have told people, if your gonna give me flowers, they better be Roses. Don't get me wrong, I love flowers. My small yard is filled with flowers every year. I have a Lily that most gardener's would die for. I guard the thing with my life! But I love Roses!
It was just a matter of time before I did a Rose soap. Goat's Milk base, fresh cut roses fragrance and real rose petals. I like the fact that the flowers stayed near the top.

I am not a beer drinker. But sometimes, I will have one or two. Not much more after that. But my brother loves beer. We have a brewer near where he works ( He has tried so many of their beers. I get a flavored beer every year for my birthday.
I brought this Raspberry Wheat beer. I like raspberries. This should be good, right? Wrong! I hated the stuff. Bitter, bitter, bitter. Couldn't even choke it down. Can't pour it out. No matter if I like it or not, that is a waste of money!!!
I push it from one side to another. I have done this for a few months.
Should I? How will it turn out? Never know until you try, right? well, I listened to that voice in my head. Goat's Milk base (loving the stuff), Southern Tier Raspberry Wheat Beer, raspberry fragrance, purple coloring. Here you have the finished soap!
Love the scent, the color, hopefully, the soap.
I will be doing more beer soaps. Southern Tier Brewing, is only maybe 20 minutes away from where I live in Lakewood, New York. They have great names for their wares like Hop Sun, Uber Sun, Cherry Saison, just to name a few. They are open year round, but have seasonal beers/ales. I will be trying some more of their products. Oh, soaping of course!!

  1. Hold the phone Joan!! Let's not be throwing out any beer. Especially the Raspberry Wheat ones. I got a chance to taste that around the holidays. LOVED IT!!! Oh yeah! Loving the Raspberry beer! And you're using it in the SOAP! I do believe that that's a crime in some cultures. (read: MINE)

    K. Now that we've got that outta the way....on to your soaps. BEAUTIFUL!! Arnita you're going like a mad woman. A mad woman I say. Loving your blog Arnita. Loving it. I can see how it's fleshed out even more since I was here last. Which was last week. OK that's all I'm writing for now. Now I'm gonna try and post this comment. See if it takes. Here goes.
