Cute Little Shavers!

Yesterday's project: Lemongrass Shaving Soaps.  Aren't they cute? Maybe I'm just giddy that they came out of the molds! : )

Do you ever get that "sinking feeling" towards the end of a new technique or procedure that it may have been nothing but a waste of time and resources?  I had that feeling this morning when it came time to un-mold.   "Hmmmmm, what if they don't come out....what if I have to dig the soap out of the mold with a knife and spoon...what if..."

Boy, those "what if's" can be killers, can't they?  How many times I fail to even try something because of those pesky "what if's"!   Which leads me to a better "what if":  "What if" I could remove all the "what if's" from my thinking?"   Now there's a "what if" to spend my time on!   I think that just for today, I'm going to give them the heave-ho!

Happy skin!  ~Becky

Hello Becky, Good news is that my Tea Tree Eucalyptus soap is ready to send you. Cured 4 weeks. Tried it out on my face and I really like it. Bad news is that as far as the EOs go, I know you said you are not a big fan of stron Tea Tree scent... well the Eucalyptus has not come through much and it has a strong Tea Tree scent. I like it, however you may not. I will also sent you a few others to try out. This will be my 3rd Soap Swap! Please send me your address to: jenorasoaps@yahoo.com xo Jen
