:sigh: Holiday weekends screw me up. Ah, well....

I need to do a picture post, but didn't bring the camera card today. Hopefully tomorrow. Herself has made 5 - or 6 - crocheted critters, and they're fantastic! She's almost finished a dragon for me :snuggles: - she started it yesterday!

Himself is doing models and balloon animals now. The creativity these kids have - it's amazing!

My hands are covered in silicone - I "lined" the smaller soap mold with silicone caulk last night. I suck at lining with paper/trash bags/plastic, and the cutting board pieces leak. Someone on The Dish did a tutorial on using silicone bath caulk to line her molds...so I figured, why not? Messy, yes, but if I never have to line again, it'll be worth it! Silicone mold liners are *expensive*..this was $9; $6 for the caulk, $1 for the putty knife, and $1 for the gun. We'll test it this weekend to see if it really works. If not, oh well - I'm out $9. I can always line the mold with plastic bags again. :sigh:

Gotta skitter - contract work today.

could you make soap in those silicone large muffin pans?
Like this? http://www.amazon.com/Wilton-Mini-Cavity-Flower-Silicone/dp/B000NNIJ66/
They come in cute shapes! I imagine the creative soap folks already thought of that - when I start making soap I think I will buy that flower one - looks much safer than star shaped soap.

Yes, you can - but you have to be sure that you have enough shapes to hold your recipe. (I suck at figuring out how much space my recipies take up....I finally figured out (after a lot of "emergency" mold grabs) that my smaller mold holds a recipe that uses 30 oz of oil. The larger one I'm still figuring out - I *think* it's 40 oz, but I need to mix it up and see.

I see the potential for problems and confusion with this. I would like to see this new behavior as option that defaults to off, and if enabled the maps should still be downloaded to a 'shared' baseEF. http://www.eshopuggbootsde.com/
