How to Make Homemade Goats Milk Soap (Recipe)

Tutorial - How to make homemade goats milk soap from Finding Home (

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.

How to Update Vintage Jewelry

How to Update Vintage Jewelry

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.
