Keeping Busy

I've been slacking in terms of blogging. Here's a quick peak at what's been keeping me busy during Spring Break.

My son's room is finished (for now) and he's moved back in. You can see the nice laminate flooring he and I put in all by ourselves. It was recycled from another room where it had been incorrectly installed. The crown moldings and baseboard moldings aren't in yet but that will wait a little while.....I'm tired of being a handyman and would like to take a break from it.

The soap studio has now been expanded from this.......

and now includes this as well. Plenty of space to cut and package my soaps. Yeah!!

With the extra space, I was able to put up this lovely curing rack my Dad made for me. This rack, my curing closet and one of those cheap white pantry cupboards should be plenty of space to cure my soaps on for the two farmer's markets I'm in this year.

Speaking of's time to go make more soap!

That looks great!! Makes me want to start making soap. I've made some, but nothing like yours. Those are amazing!

Oh my gosh! That is awesome. Good for you. I'm going start sketching my dream workshop and turn it over to my hubby the handyman!!

wowowowowowowowow...could he be MY dad and make me one too ;)

Cathy Winsby said...

Lol....only if you can get him to make me another one first!! Each shelf is actually a tray that comes out so you can fill it where you are cutting and then slide it back in. So awesome.
