Ain't No Lye

I have been anxiously awaiting my new shipment of soap supplies for about two weeks now. I was not so patiently planning and preparing for my first project. I knew what day my box would arrive. I made sure to keep up with the housework and other things so I could spend the night soaping. The Fed-Ex truck pulled up to my house. My box was finally here! With the three youngest boys trying to get their hands on everything helping, I started to unpack the box. It was so beautiful, I had to take a picture.

As I was putting the lye up high where no one could reach it, I noticed the big word Borax on the canister. My heart sank. No soaping for me, and more waiting for another package!! Not to be daunted, I decided to try some whipped body butter. What a fun and easy project! And I was rewarded by being able to slather my ashy legs after my shower last night.
