A couple years ago I had someone contact me about teaching her to make cold-processed soap. She lives in a smaller town south of here, and so she was able to come on over to my house and see how it’s done. We had a grand old time! Well, after making her own soap for the past couple of years, she decided that it wasn’t good for her back (she had trouble with it before she started making soap), and thought of me as she was getting rid of some of her supplies.
I received this lovely baker’s rack, which she graciously DELIVERED TO MY HOUSE for just $100. (It’s still in my garage, obviously.):
I am very excited because my current storage area in the basement looks like this:
I also have a few things on this shelving unit, which I’ve never liked because LOOK at all the wasted space between shelves:
I’m hoping to get some things re-arranged soon so I can put my new curing rack to good use! Oh, and I also bought a few frosted jars with black lids, and some lovely micas and oxides that I will have so much fun playing with!
To top it off, she gave me the rest of her roll of freezer paper to line my soap molds with. It turned out to be exactly like the kind I order from Uline.
Looks like it may be raining on Saturday morning, which usually means no farmer’s market for me. I may get some re-arranging done though!
