good clean fun
yay for the fabulous jen from painted fish studio, who braved the mind-numbing eight hour drive from minneapolis to lawrence to have a pARTy in artsyville! she is an absolute delight, super funny, and we had a great weekend together drinking wine, people-watching and exploring the university. then yesterday a bunch of us got together, including a few of jen's art pals who also came in from out of town, and we made soap and lip balm all afternoon. jen is an excellent teacher and i couldn't believe how easy it was! if you want to learn how to make your own, check out her tutorials here and here. also couldn't resist a pic of these delish daisy cookies made by my friend amanda. can't wait to order my own supplies to make more soap and lip balm - i think i have gift-giving covered for the next few years!
now i'm easing into the morning with a quiet cup of coffee on the front lawn, gearing up for a busy doodleday, and playing catch-up both in real life and in blogville. happy day! :)
