I can do anything

That's what Hedley sings. Apparently that's not going to be my theme song.

When we were younger, we went to Disneyland as a family, and after watching the fireworks from our motel room, my sister jumped over a strip of rocks between the driveway and the sidewalk to our room. I said, "I can do that too!" She closes the door on me for fun, and when she opened up the door, I'm down on my hands and knees in front of the door, cursing. Apparently, I couldn't jump over that strip successfully. (she loves telling that story BTW).

Fast forward to 2015, I see an awesome tutorial on Soapqueen and I think "hey I can do that." Maybe if I had done it in a loaf like she did, it might've turned out, but I didn't want to make a loaf, I wanted to make guest squares. Needless to say, it's another craft fail. Plus, I forgot to add a pretty flower on top. At least they smell good being scented with Moonlight Pomegranate.

On the bright side, I got a bunch of new things for the kitchen.

Hope you had a more successful week than I did.

Meghan Trainor and I are *this* close

Because we're both all about the bears, 'bout the bears, 'bout the bears...

What, she's not all about the bears? It's bass? Oh, how embarrassing!

Well I'm still all about the bears because who doesn't love a bear or want a bear to love?

This is what happens to bears that double-cross the Don, see? (I've been watching Gotham of late)

Baby gift

My sister-in-law asked for some soaps as part of a baby shower gift she was attending. I suggested the numbers and spelling out the baby's name. Colour scheme of mauve, pink and white using goat's milk. The teddy bears are from a chocolate mould.

Have a great week!
