Monday musings: Handmade soap and good, clean fun


Dead Sea Clay

With several social engagements, seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens (awesome) and staying up to watch the reboot of the X-Files (awesomer) last night, this little soap maker is plum tired out. Luckily, I did find time to play around in the soap lab on Friday. I’m trying to formulate a soap that will help my own combination skin. I used Dead Sea clay (shown in the picture above) and tea tree oil. It’s still too soon to say how this soap turned out but I’ll keep you posted!

Handmade soap

There are so many creative soap makers that inspire me. Check out some of my favorite finds on Pinterest! (Are we pinning buddies there? We should be.)

Good, clean fun

If you’re not following Emmet Street Creations on Facebook, here’s some of the fun you missed:

Previous musings from Emmet Street you might have missed

Emmet Street Creations would like to wish a very happy (if belated) birthday to Dolly Parton. My co-blogger, Kelly, is a huge fan and she spelled out why in a post last year.  She even travelled to Knoxville to see Dolly perform in person and to experience the wonder of made-from-scratch Southern biscuits

Who’s your favorite musician and how far have you traveled to see them perform?
