|Diaper Cake & Purse|
To round out the last weekend of summer vacation, I hosted a baby shower for my younger daughter, who is expecting in October. The guest list grew, and the space in my house kept feeling smaller, so we borrowed a big tent for the yard, and after it went up we had two days of non-stop rain. I was worried, to say the least, but the rain moved out and everything started drying out in time for the party. In my ever creative mode, I embarked on creating a diaper cake for the shower, and when I found myself with leftover diapers I made a diaper purse, because every little girl needs a purse, right?
|Soy Tea Lights|
Today has been all about catching up with packaging, photographs, and listing items in my online shop. Today I added soy wax melts and tea lights (boxes made in house) in some of my summer scents, and will be adding fall and holiday fragrances in the near future. Also added are some fizzing bath salts in 9 oz. and 16 oz. bags. The 9 oz. bags are handcrafted in house.

|Favors in the molds|
Heart embeds were made with glycerin soap that has similar qualities to cold processed soap in that it is less likely to sweat. The process was a labor intensive undertaking due to the fact that the molds had small indentations in the center of the hearts which needed some definition, so I went to task piping the red centers.
Once the embeds were complete, it was on to making the cold process soap for pouring the mini cupcake bottoms and piping the tops.
After 72 mini cupcakes I ran out of molds and had to wait until they set up enough for releasing from the molds. And the fun begins of creating the next 72 mini cupcakes!
Eventually these will be wrapped in organza bags before getting tucked into the favor sampler boxes.

|Birthday Party Bath Treat Favors|
|Bridal Shower Heart Soap Favors|
|Soy Candle Wedding Favors|
|Baby Shower Pacifier Favors|
As the last few weeks of summer vacation rapidly close in on me, I've turned my focus toward autumn and Holiday themes. Judging from the appearance of the leaves on some trees already (yes, some have already got patches of color emerging), I guess the change of weather and cooler temps is sure to take over before we know it.
