Tutorial - How to make homemade goats milk soap from Finding Home (findinghomeonline.com)
Since Mother's Day is near and I think this is a perfect gift idea - I thought I would bring back one of my all time favorite project - sharing with you how I made homemade goats milk soap.
But first, I have to make a confession.
I am a scent snob.
I try not to be, but it is true.
I bring home all kind of things that smell yummy in the store, but when I get home…, well my sister always gets them.
But there are two scents I love always.
Lemon Verbena and Lavender.
And if they are mixed – even better.
So I decided I would try my hand at making my own soap – in my favorite scents.
And if it is going to smelly yummy, it may as well feel yummy too, so I made it with goats milk soap ingredients.
And it could not have been any easier.
Today, I am doing things a little different than normal. Today, I am writing to my fellow bloggers. However – don’t leave just yet!
Steps 1 and 2 of this post have great advice for simple editing of any photo!
I used to be completely intimidated by using Photoshop Elements. In fact, it was given to me as a gift, and it sat in the box on my shelf for a long time. But then I finally decided to start learning how to use it.
If you are just getting started, please visit here first. This will link you to a series of videos that will help your learn the basics of navigating Photoshop Elements.
Also, just for understanding, I am using Photoshop Elements 7. There are newer versions, but the same principals apply.
Today, I am going to share how to simply edit, fix and brighten all of your photos in a simple an easy step. Then, I will share how to easily add your watermark and the best way to save the files.
I am writing this not as a Photoshop Elements expert, I am writing this just as a blogger who has figured some stuff out and I thought I would share it!
Did you ever do a project that you really just love?
Did you ever love it so much, that you thought maybe you should share it again?
Maybe you are new around here and you never saw our wicker chandelier on our porch.
What I love the best about this project is that anyone can do it and the materials can so easily be found.
This is a sponsored post, but all opinion are my own.
A few years ago I started to notice that every time I shopped for casual jewelry, I could not find what I wanted. I liked some parts of new and some parts of vintage. So I began dabbling with making my own – mixing new and vintage.
So when the opportunity came about to do a project for Martha Stewart Jewelry I jumped at the chance.
The first thing I was excited about was all the tools. But, I will admit, I did not really get the silicone mat at first.
Now, I want to be the president of its fan club.
I have a reputation.
It is true.
A reputation for being willing to take in long forgotten items with a little wear, maybe even some rust.
In fact, just this Sunday, as we went to leave the church parking lot – a friend stopped her car and waved me down so her husband could give me the old metal bucket he had saved for me.
It was one of the sweetest things someone had done for me in a long time.
