We're home!

Oh my gosh, did we have fun at Windy Point Soap in Calgary! The classes were so much fun - we had a blast playing with new ingredients like  coffee butter, carrot seed extract, PEG 6 caprylic/capric triglycerides (awesome for micellar water), and foaming silk - and it was an absolute joy to meet so many of you who follow the blog and support us on Patreon.

I'll be back again, and I'd love to hear what you'd like to learn. (I'm sorry we could only offer one facial products class as it sold out quite quickly. We'll have at least two next time.) If we're looking at something early in 2018, what dates work best for you? I'd love to hear your suggestions!

Michele and Keith were lovely to host us at their home, and Sasja had a great time playing with her cousins, Macy and Bailey. A huge thank you to Michele's daughter, Megan for caring for Sasja when we went out for dinner. (Sasja adores Megan!)

I had a blast making pressed eye shadows with Amanda. After a few more weeks of testing, we'll be ready to share our experiences and formulas with you! (Check out the little pressing kits on Windy Point. Here's the silver one!) We've been creating some visual tutorials for this project and a few others you'll see here and on Windy Point Soap's blog and formulary.

We're not trying to be mean by not sharing the formula yet. We have to test things for a while to ensure they work well, like testing them in a more humid climate or with glitter. I promise we'll have something shortly! 

Since we drove around 1,000 km yesterday, it's a resting day for us at home before we dive back into life on Thursday!

I look forward to your upcoming posts/suggestions about formulating with PEG 6 caprylic/capric triglycerides. I impulsively bought some over the weekend from Windy Point's website with no particular goal in mind. I searched online for formulations but could not find any!
Lotioncrafter (listed as SurfPro CC-6 on their site) suggests that it could be a refatting ingredient so I may try it in a shampoo.

Glad to hear you made it home safe and sound. Just wanted to say Thank you so much for all the information and the laughs. You are a great teacher. Look forward to taking more classes from you when you come back to Cow Town.

HI Ally! I have some micellar water formulas in which I use it, which I hope to share soon. (We made them in the facial products class at Windy Point that weekend, too.)

Hi AM N! Thank you for your kind words. I love teaching so much, and it's lovely to know that I'm not too bad at it!

Hi Crystal! Thank you! I love hair care products so much!
