Multiplicity of Ideas

Well, as usual, I have too many ideas an either no time or no energy to do anything about them.  I have an idea for making homemade soap for my family, (we are trying to be more healthy and more financially aware.)   Also I had this wonderful idea to make hair bows from naturally hand dyed ribbon.  Needless to say both of these ideas require a lot of extra research, which of course takes time.  Fortunately, I have discovered that down time physically works well for research, so the Lord makes it work out one way or the other.  Since I have had a fair amount of down time due to some health issues, I have made a lot of progress on that score. 

I have seen some really cool colors made from things you totally would not expect and I am really looking forward to trying them out.  I am also wondering if some of the natural dyes will work for soap as well.  My research has been rather lacking in information on this.  Some of the writers say that the process of lye soap making will destroy the natural colorants or fade them significantly.  I will of course report on my findings. 

On the dyeing front, I have been making white crocheted roses which I will try to dye a soft pink using, believe it or not, avocado skins.  These will be attached to clips with a button in the middle like so. 

 I am also planning to do some wide satin ribbbon bows as well.

When it comes to making soap I am planning to start with shaving soap, do half with a masculine scent and the other half with a more feminine scent.  My next project will be to move on to a basic moisturizing soap.  However this project will require waiting until I have some money for equipment and some of the more hard to find oils. 

As usual money is a factor and so these projects are not on the front burner at the moment.  I guess the timing isn't quite right for these yet.  Of course, being in the middle of the year homeschooling could definitely be a factor as far as timing goes.  ;)   So maybe these projects will have to wait for the summer vacation, but this would not be the end of the world.  As usual have a very blessed day and hang on to your dreams.
