Wow! Look at this amazing box of ingredients sent to me by Maggie at the Formulator Sample Shop! Water soluble extracts, oil soluble proteins, emulsifying wax, and their new Phytoscents! These were originally intended for the Guild's conference in Niagara Falls, but since that has been postponed to next year, I can use them make loads of new recipes to post on this blog!
And check out this interview I did with Marie of Humblebee & Me! This picture is of my totally awesome clay creation of bunnies on a log. Now you know why I'm a writer and formulator and not a potter or visual artist. Lest you think to yourself, but she was only 4 when she made it...this is the best I could do now if I tried again!
As I'm home in bed with what seems to be the stomach flu, I'll leave you with this picture of my workshop. Mine is not a pretty Pinterest kind of shop with flowers and chalk boards and rustic looking counters. No, mine is a working workshop with papers overflowing from binders and ingredients all over the counters because I hate to not have them close at hand.
I wish I kept a prettier workshop that looked lovely in photos, but this is who I am. My dad built this from wood he found. I remember him pulling out the nails and sanding it down while he watched TV and tried to ignore my mom yelling that he was making a mess in the den. I think he'd be happy I'm using it for chemistry!
