My wonderful boss, well one of them, is retiring at the end of this month. I've only known her since March when I started here, but she is one of the most awesome people I've ever met. Her enthusiasm and joie de vivre is like nothing I've ever encountered before. When she found out I made soaps, she said, bring me some and I'll pay for them. That's the type of person she is; always willing to help out and believes in everyone's potential.
As part of my gift to her, I've made a gardener's soap and a chick and egg soap. The gardener's soap is for her to share with her husband, "Gardener Bob" as she refers to him. He went from being a banker to being a consummate gardener in his retirement. The chick and egg soap is a tribute to her many years of teaching kindergarten children all about chicks. I'm also including some whipped butter for her to use after cleaning up after gardening all day, as well as a most adorable poster.
|Coloured with gold mica for the chick and antique blue for the egg. Scented with champagne for a light but refreshing scent.|
|Made with coffee grounds in the top layer of honey soap, a mix of honey and goat's milk soap in the middle layer, and ground oatmeal in goat's milk for the bottom layer. Scented with chocolate fudge and vanilla for extra yumminess.|
