So Ive been busy making, packaging and giving stuff for christmas gifts to my friends and family. Well since christmas is over they have received them and I think they like them!

I made bath salts, soaps, lip balms and sugar cube scrubs. I also made these crochet hanging tea towel thingys for the kitchen but I forgot to take photos of them and they arent really bath related but just take my word that they were pretty awesome lol. Sorry some of the photos aren't very good I only have an iphone to take photos with atm

Ginger souffle sugar cube scrubs - I got some awesome ice cube trays for $1.50!


These are a lip balm trio, the flavour is the same (caramel... yum) but one is natural, one coloured with amber bronze mica and one coloured with a very pink shade of lipstick


My labeling efforts


This is melon bath salts with kaolin clay and like an aquaish food colouring (I mixed blue with a touch of green) the colour isn't very melonish but I just thought it would look pretty in the bath!


These ones are coconut


The soaps! The ones that look white in the photo but are actually light orange are mango and coconut with a little shreded loofah on the top, the orange clear soaps are mango with jojoba and the pink ones are melon with jojoba


How I packaged the soaps - Parker Brown is a bit of a family joke its my last name with my partners last name


This is everything together before I wrapped them up


Next year I want to make bath bombs! Its ironic (and sad) that I dont actually have a bathtub in my house Sad Maybe I could get a kiddie pool and sit in the back yard lol
