A great first craft meeting session.

Today l went to a Craft group meeting run by a lovely Czech lady called Veronica. We had a great first meet up and had a "Show and Tell" session. It was a shame there were only 3 of us but boy did we have fun!!!. Lots of tea and an amazing home-made cake!! Then we learnt how to make soap which was great fun. Below are some of the images l took from this session!
The first image is of one of the stamps we used to put in the base of the mold, what a clever idea that was Veronica.

This image shows you a stamp being put in the base of the mould. 
The next image is showing glitter being added to the liquid soap mixture. Some had glitter, others didn't.

The pink soap has had a Christmas essence ( in other words..cloves!) added to it..gorgeous!! The purple soap has a coconut essense added to it..yummy! If you spray the top of the soap once it is set, with alcohol, you can then pour another colour on top of it. Now isn't that clever?! 

 This is the soap wrapped in cling fim and then a stamp has been added as a final touch. One Christmas idea for you!


  1. Play days with friends are the best and I just love show and tell with art friends, we do it once a month with our group. I love the little soaps I will have to try it, they look great.

  2. lovely shadow shots and the blog is so interesting, I shall be back to visit again.

  3. How fun, Lynda, you've found a play group! I know we talked about that being a desire of yours. The soaps look like they were a lot of fun to design and make.
