Term Break

Term Break has meant time in Dunedin with family, creative moments and playing with my camera!  Yesterday was 'Scrap Saturday' where a group of local ladies get together to make stuff with paper generally although there were some knitting needles out & about yesterday.  I worked on the below layouts.  '12' & 'Hi' were part of a 'kit'challenge that we had each made up our own kits (shopping from our stash) & we had some things to do on our pages to go in the draw for a prize.

Having 8 ladies to your home to scrapbook requires liquid handsoap in the bathroom...we were out so I made some:-)  Rose essential oils make this one smell delighful and I smile each time I wash my hands (kind of like my rose multipurpose spray too).  Julia asked for the recipe...I made mine from Wendyl Nissen's book and you can find it HERE.  I added rose geranium & indian palmarosa in equal quantities.  I didn't use sunlight soap either - used some Dr Bronners bar soap.  This only makes enough for about 250ml liquid soap.

Last week I had the double pleasure of catching up with a uni friend and her delightful daughters and nephew to take some photos as I learn my way around my camera more.  She made some delicious ham soup and used the left over fat from the ham to make bird feeders with these three.

oh what a lovely break you have had thus far. What a wonderful scrap Saturday you had. Funnily enough I made liquid handsoap a month ago, I went for lemongrass and lavender.Great thing was it made enough for four bottles, two bathrooms, one toilet and one kitchen bench and still managed to 3/4 full a litre bottle. I love liquid handsoap.

What a great catch up you had with your uni friend.

Sounds like you have been having fun break! I love your pages..and very inspired to scraplift the bottom right one.

What was the "liquid" of your handsoap? Water? or something else?
