Bubbling Bath Melts & the Balance of Life
Today I worked on Bubbling Bath Melts for Valentines Day. Here is a picture of the ones scented in Sex & Candy.
I wrapped them in purple foil (it really is a pretty purple, but it looks more blue in this picture). They weigh 20 grams each and will be available in sets of 4.
I think they turned out really cute and tomorrow I will work on one scented in Love Sick. I also plan to have Chocolate Fetish available and maybe one other scent that I've not made up my mind on yet.
Would have liked to have gotten more done today, however, I found out mid day that my Mom's husband has cancer. This news comes on the heels of my youngest sister being diagnosed with Chronic Pancreatitis. She is only 30 years old. And then two weeks ago finding out that my Aunt has stage 3 brain cancer. I sort of feel like some unknown force is waging war on my family. And it all kind of caught up with me today :(
On a brighter note, I did get a call from my son who is expecting his first child (he has two step-sons). They called from just having an ultra-sound and it looks as if I'm going have my first (biological) grand-daughter the first of June! Finally a baby girl to dress up in frilly, pretty things :)
So, as is so often in life, where there is sadness, there comes joy. Such is the balance of life.
