I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's Eve & a Happy 2010 from here on forward! We had a fun and relaxing evening. We had corn dog appetizers (remember those from when you were a kid?), french bread pizzas and mini eclairs for dessert! We then played some Wii, what a blast we had, watched some TV and I made some oatmeal soap bars, primitive soap labels and then grunged up 2 mason jars that have frog lids.
Here are the oatmeal soap balls I made. I rolled some in cinnamon, some in nutmeg and others in clove. These are just going to be for display. If you add spices such as I did, you should not use them if you get rashes on your skin from the spices. I had already started to get a rash on one of my hands while making them.
I then did up some handmade primitive jar labels. The graphics program I use is Paint Shop Pro.
I sealed the labels to the jar and rubbed one jar with a bit of cinnamon and the other a bit of nutmeg just to give a slight grungy look.
Here is the view of the oatmeal soap bars through the top of the frog lid:
I put one jar in the bathroom on the hanging wall cubby:
The other jar I put in the kitchen sink soap holder:
