And by 'we', I mean my friend and her husband did almost all of the work because I'm freaked out by lye. Anyway, soap was made because my friends are amazing! We choose Raspberry Vanilla scent, and we went with purple, pink, and white colors. Then we almost forgot to dust the top with glitter, … Continue reading We Made Soap!
If you haven't heard of the Fruits Basket manga, I'd like to assert that you're losing out. It's a cute manga that starts out with shape changing zodiac members that grows progressively darker throughout as the curse and their 'God' are explored more fully. You get to see the characters at their best... and then … Continue reading Anime/Manga Rec: Fruits Basket
All I can say is that the Black Friday deals were killing me. I wanted SO MUCH stuff but I kept it down for the most part to Things I Actually Need. For the most part. There's two HUGE exceptions to that, but they're for a later post. Anyway, Nurture Soap had a sale on … Continue reading Soap Making Shinies!
My husband and I have been working with two of our friends on getting them their Griffons in Guild Wars 2. It's a laundry list of 'buy this' and 'buy that' and 'complete this and that group event'. It's the group events that have been the problem because we have no idea how to get … Continue reading If It’s Not on One Server Try the Next

I've started slowly going through my stuff in the basement. You know how it is - you pack to move, move, and then just never get to the last few boxes. No multiply this by ten moves now, and there are QUITE a few boxes that made it into my basement and no further. I … Continue reading What Have I Got in My Boxes?
As I've mentioned before, I've been playing a lot of Guild Wars 2 with my husband and friends. It's a Massively Multi-Player Online Role Playing Game, and Guild Wars is one that's buy once and then free to play. You can buy game items with real money, but you don't need them to play. Generally … Continue reading What Do You Mean You Didn’t Get Credit?
I am delighted. I just saw the new trailer for Guild Wars 2, and there's going to be a third expansion! It's not due to come out until 2021, but I'm excited, and I'm hoping they'll explore the asian continent from the first game. You can find the trailer here. The logo: And there's a … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: A New Expansion?
I decided I wanted to give my father-in-law soap for his birthday. Is this a spoiler? He doesn't read my blog, so it's probably okay. Anywho, time to drag out the supplies! I had some new colors and scents arrive earlier this week that I had been waiting for, so it was time to play … Continue reading Mint and Sage Soap!
I attended the University of Wisconsin - Madison, which was a wonderful and desperate experience. I was so sick during this time period that it was a struggle. But, one semester, I don't remember what year, probably 2005 or 2006, I took an art class. My professor came down on me hard for making everything … Continue reading When Something You Create Becomes Precious
