I'm a little over half done making our little soap hearts for the GOTR gift bags. Anna made the labels, and Melisa is putting them on the little packets. I will drop these off to her in a little bit. We are supplying about 600 this year. Whew!!!!

A few days ago I made some soap with a scent we are calling Primitive Pear. The scent is very hard to describe. It reminds me of something I can't quite name. I really like it. It has pear notes in it, but there is something else in the background.  When I swirled the mica, it immediately turned greyish purple.  Now it has a green cast to it, kind of like ripened pears. There are also some green dots appearing that I'm not thrilled about.  I made a loaf and several cupcakes.

Melisa and Anna have told me that they don't really like the heart-shape on the cupcakes.  I'm not sure why - I like them, but I am out voted 2-1 so I guess I will switch to round cupcakes.  What do you think?

Word of the day:
Wednesday of the Second week of Easter
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 3:16-21

God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
And this is the verdict, that the light came into the world, but people preferred darkness to light, because their works were evil.
For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come toward the light, so that his works might not be exposed.
But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God.
