this making of bath and beauty products could be so consuming? After Janines workshop last weekend I have made my family try out different products and ideas, they haven't complained... much.
Today we tried a chocolate bath milk. Ethan actually tasted it, it did smell tasty but I didn't like the fact that I had to clean the chocolate residue from the bath afterwards, the other bath milks haven't been a problem nor the bath salts. A hot day today meant that the peppermint foot soak went down a treat and each family member sports their very own lip balm - chocolate, orange, rose and peppermint, all a little different, trying out different oils and sweeteners.
We have been trailing Wendyl's liquid hand soap this week and so far it's all good. Playing with a linen spray idea.
Next challenge is to have a go at making bath bombs and some castile soap.
All good, but I really should be writing school reports...some things are a bit more interesting...

some essential oils, a couple of bowls a spoon and a fabulous tutor and the result is some delightful smelling talcs, bath salts, bath teas and milk bath. I have just finished making another batch of the powder and trying to coax my kids into the bath to try out a bath salt mix I made at the Queenstown Scrap Retreat this weekend! Loving the smell of rose and lavender permeating our living room.
I am making a list of the products I want to make some more of these for gifts for Christmas.
As well as the great company, laughs (assisted by some you-tube videos), meals cooked by Nik and time out from the normal routines I did get some cards made and some mini album pages completed too. I also enjoyed sharing a reverse canvas idea with some of the ladies at the retreat (will upload photos eventually...).
Plans are under way for a retreat in Pukerau next March-ish as well as Winter Fest Retreat in June and another pre-Christmas crop in November at Lakeland Park, Queenstown.

Four kids here taking turns with it.
Stayed with friends last weekend and their family enjoyed playing the game...so did we and a shopping expedition last night saw us coming home with it.
Different game options...solo, pass it & party as well as different levels you can unlock...
The party game reminds me a little of hackey sack games when at uni.
Miss 10 asked if we can play it with the whole family tonight.
What games do you play as a family or do you remember playing as a kid with the whole family?
