Trying New Things

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all having a wonderful, blessed Sunday.  We are home today-no church-due to the snow we got on Thursday.

I have been wanting to try making our own body wash ever since I came across this recipe for it.  So today is the day.  I am making homemade liquid face wash.   I divided the recipe by 4 as I just wanted to make 1 qt to try.  I used 2/3 of a bar of aveeno clear complexion cleansing bar, 1 and 1/2 tsp glycerin and a qt of water.  I’ll let you all know how we like it.  I estimate the cost of this qt. to be about $2.00.  I bought the aveeno soap at our local pharmacy and probably paid more for it than I would have at Wal-Mart.   We have a big thing of shower gel right now that we are using but when this runs out I plan on making the gallon recipe using ivory soap.  I think you could use any soap of your choosing.  I like ivory and it is not expensive.

My quilt is coming along nicely.  I finished all the 9 X 9 in. squares yesterday.  Now to put them all together.  I am thinking of a border but am undecided as of yet.  A border would probably mean I would have to purchase material and I am wanting to make it all from scrap material I already have on hand.  I hope to work some more on it today.

We were still cold this morning-16 degrees-but the wind is not blowing too much so it is not so bad.  Well, that’s about all that’s going on here.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

  1. I can’t wait to see your quilt! I wish I was in a quilt making mood. 🙂 Madison has made several heart quilt squares with the scraps you gave her. I think she might try to make them into a table runner for Valentine’s Day.

    Let me know how your face wash turns out. I have been using Burt’s Bees deep cleansing cream. I love it. It has peppermint in it so it turns my cheeks pink-no need for blush. 🙂 I did make powdered laundry soap yesterday. I tripled the batch so I hope I like it. I will be using it for the rest of the year! I do think I save a lot by making laundry soap.

    Our temps are much better without that awful wind. It is supposed to really nice on Tuesday(and Quentin is off) if the wind will just stay away.


  2. I am glad you found a recipe.. I have been checking around and actually just found one that is not too complicated.. If you don’t like this one let me know and I will email the pinterest one…
    It has been cold here too but supposed to be warmer tomorrow..
    Take care, my friend..


  3. I hope that you warm up soon. We actually got up to 40º. The snow is melting, but no place to go as the ground is frozen.

    I will be watching to see how you like that face wash. I haven’t tried to make any of that. I like to have a border on the quilt. I think it just pulls it together. I look forward to seeing your pictures.

    Have a wonderful evening with your family and stay warm.
