The Mr. in the Workroom

It's not often that I have company when I make soap.  In fact, it's pretty rare.  But since my shelves were nearly sold bare at Christmas time, it's taken some work to get my inventory back up to full capacity.  On a recent Thursday night my husband suggested that I prep oils and molds and we would make some soap together the following evening.

So Friday night, I had a hot date with my guy and soap.  (Not too shabby!)  We make a good team!  He was a great help, stirring lye solutions, measuring fragrances, and even choosing color schemes. 

We made six batches, which included a few test batches.


Here is one of the test batches that he poured by himself--his first attempt.  I think it's gorgeous!  He has a lot of natural talent, don't you think?

He's a keeper!  (And so were the soaps.)

    1. Yeah, I don't think it will be a regular occurrence, though. It's a little slow-moving for him...if only the stick blender had a few more horsepower! ;) But he was a great help and a good sport.

  3. That's fabulous! I don't think I could have hubby working with me in my craft room, we'd just get in each other's way and nothing would ever get done. ;)
