Milk Soap

I have been making soap this month. I can make several batches and it will last for months. For at least 15 years, I have only used my own soap. I have very dry  sensitive skin and like knowing what I am putting on it. Plus my dear husband loves using it as shampoo. I really like soap with milk in it since it seems to be even more moisturizing.

The other thing that makes this soap special for me is I made the recipe from a soap calculator and thus had total control over what it had in it. I have considered making some soap for sale but haven’t decided whether or not there would be enough of a market to make it worth my while.

Every now and then I see something and think “I could do that and isn’t it cool?” That is what happened here. I saw a picture

but I didn’t have any lights. Then my daughter-in-law walked in and had just picked up in helping someone move. SOO! Here is my version of the crochet led rug. It will go by my back door as a night light. Pretty cool, huh!

BTW I will NOT make this as a item in my shop. The work is harder than it looks and killed my hands.
