Spring is in the Air

Ahhh Spring ^_^ Such a lovely thing… Days are getting longer, the sun feels warmer, and new growth is beginning to bud. Soon I’ll begin some Spring cleaning (because my apartment needs it!). I’m also hoping that soon my handmade soap will be ready to use.


The fruits of my 2nd batch of cold-process soap ^_^ ! I used a recipe I created at soapcalc.net (I HIGHLY recommend this soap calculator for making soap from scratch!!!!). The only ingredients are water, lye – sodium hydroxide NaOH – and pure olive oil. No random crap! Simple, clean, and easy on my skin ^_^

Ostara (Spring Equinox) passed recently and Easter is on its way! To get myself in a festive mood, I decided to try blowing eggs for decorating. The technique is pretty simple: poke 2 small holes at opposite ends of an egg and blow through one hole which will force the egg white and yolk out through the 2nd hole. The process goes a bit smoother if you can scramble the egg yolk before blowing. I tried How to Scramble Eggs Inside Their Shell by NightHawkInLight on youtube HERE . I stopped before hard-boiling though.


My first ever successfully blown egg – if it looks like the egg inside the jar is more than one egg … it is (I crushed my first try by holding it too hard as I blew).


I managed to successfully blow 2 eggs … And then I dropped both of them.


On a side note, it’s been just over a year since my About Me picture was taken and I’ve not cut my hair since…

Hair - march 2013

It’s getting a touch long and I’m looking forward to my 2nd attempt at a flat-twist headband. I’ve been procrastinating because it takes hours to style my hair into anything remotely fancy (two-strand twists are usually my go-to style when I want something other than bedhead ^_~).
