grapefruitsoapWhy is it that when November hits, time just seems to ZOOOOOOM by? I have made some new soap, two deliciously fresh scents, a grapefruit blend and a lavender blend. lavsoapTo the grapefruit I added some apricot seed powder for a light scrub and to the lavender I added some shredded loofah. lavheartsBoth smell like something out of the garden, can’t wait to try them out. Blue Bird from Bale and TwineBlue Bird from Bale and TwineBlue Bird from Bale and TwineI also worked on a blue bird watercolor painting yesterday. Pictured here is the print. I am trying to come up with some new artwork to apply to fabrics etc… I couldn’t resist printing some smaller prints of the painting. Turned out that the brochure paper, 180g matte, worked best on my hp printer. I was able to achieve a nice color match.
