Beer Soap and Crafting

Last night, after my lovely children were all tucked into bed, I decided to go and have a really hot shower to wash the chaos of the day away. The red Kool-Aid on the carpet, the sand from shoes dumped out everywhere, and the huge piles of laundry...all disappeared down the drain. Oh and I should mention how nice it was to have a shower ALONE without little eyes peering at me through the fogged glass door. I also made sure to lock the door so no one ELSE would interrupt me...know what I mean?

In addition to having some time alone, I was also excited to try out some of the wonderful handmade soaps I got in the mail from Anderson Soap Company. I swear, once you try handmade soap, you'll never want to go back to that crappy grocery or drugstore stuff. Never!

I had 4 different soaps to try, but figured it wouldn't be the best idea to use all four at once - I might end up smelling funny and I would be in there a long time. So I decided to crack open my jar of Peppermint Patty - Fluffy Whipped Soap In A Jar. I really just wanted to eat it because it smelled THAT good! It even makes your naughty bits tingle...just a little. (Oh..did I actually type that?? Hee hee!)

Tonight, I have a huge chunk of Lemon Poppyseed soap to try...or maybe I should go for the God Save The Queen Beer Soap. That's right - soap made with Newcastle Brown Ale beer. I bought it for the man of the house, but seriously, I'm really the one who needs alcohol and I'll take it in any form I can get!

After my wonderfully refreshing shower I made myself a huge cup of coffee and began crafting while Inglourious Basterds played in the background. I whipped up 11 fabulous fabric key fobs using my top secret no-sew technique. I'm thinking I should write a tutorial - it would be perfect for all those crafters out there who fear sewing machines as much as I do.

I'll be listing these in my Artfire shop tonight...probably after the kids have gone to bed and I've lathered myself up in wonderful beer scented soap suds.
