I have good news and bad news.

Which do you want first?  The bad news?

My little soap making experiment was what my kids call an "epic fail".  See for yourself.

Ah, the age of innocence, before I knew it was all for naught.

I thought "trace" had occurred.  Maybe not.

When I first started filling my muffin tins molds, the soap appeared to be homogenous. 
After the first 4 or 5, the mixture seemed to begin separating.

My mess of soap, all wrapped up for future use.

Doesn't it look pathetic?  At least it's functional.

Hey, we're still going to use the soap, even if it does look like blocks of cottage cheese.  At least it smells good, like lavender.  Or as Twinkle Toes says, like my deodorant.

And the good news?  My crock-pot has never been this clean before.  My muffin tins got a good washing, as well.  At least I only made a half-recipe.

This is the part of the post where I enlist the help of my crafty blog friends.  If you know what I did wrong, please advise me.


  1. LOL!!!! "Blocks of cottage cheese". You are so funny! Good for you for doing it though! At least it works.

  2. Kudos to you for even trying!

  3. You are more brave than I am! My soap making adventures consist of buying blocks of glycerine soap from the craft store that only need to be melted down. :) Even then I still freaked out about it, LOL.

I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
