Funnel Soap

I finally got the chance to make soap again! I decided to make a funnel soap. It is so easy and exactly like it sounds. I took lots of pictures, but they seem to be lost.

I used a base of olive-coconut-palm-shea with beer as my liquid. I seperated my soap into 5 plastic cups and colored it blue, yellow, red, green, and purple (although it looks blue). Then I poured each color through the funnel into my mold. I poured half of each soap through the funnel twice. Then I used a skewer to lightly swirl in a starburst pattern from the center out.
I know I used a lot of colors but it goes with the scent. The green is hard to see because it isn't very dark. I did not cover or insulate because I didn't want it to gel. I'll unmold in a few days and let you know how it turned out.

My Life Is Being Taken Over

My life is slowly being taken over by a new man! I love him so much and I just can't help it. Every time I see him, I just can't control myself. When he smiles at me, my heart just melts. I've tried to escape the hold he has on me, but I just can't. I find myself thinking about him during the day and I know I have to focus on work. I rearrange my schedule just so I can see him and spend time with him. I don't get things done like I should because I'm too distracted. I don't know what I'm going to do!

I mean could you resist this face:
