Crafty day

Finally, we got back to making more paper and soap (at the expense of Spanish, which is put off yet another day)!

Ds#1 was in charge of soap-making, and ds#2 did the paper-making.

We used a heart-shaped mold and red dye that I won from one of Anne-Marie's giveaways, as well as other Bramble Berry molds and their Romance and Lilac scents.
Ds#1 melting the white soap base:Meanwhile, ds#2 is shredding junk mail to make paper:Ds#1 again, after the soap has been poured into the molds:It's an awfully pink and girly smelling soap for the boys, but they were good sports about it. ;) I told them they could maybe do some "manly" embeds next time.
