Week 39 – Watermelon

Week 39 – Watermelon

I find it ironic that while I was enthusiastically celebrating (as you know how I do), your 1 week early release….the obstetricians here are also inducing their patients at 39 weeks! But, like we’ve always said as long as the #fakebabies arrive healthy, that’s all that matters.

We all know that watermelons are big! And oh so juicy and sweet, such a nostalgic reminder of summer. And can’t believe it’s just around the corner!

We also know that the #fakebabies have nearly, if not already, reached their full size, 7-8 pounds and 19-21 inches long. What we really need to talk about now is the delivery playlist! Don’t worry, I will send you this ‘mixed tape’ to download before your drive😉

Thanks to Jessica at Camp 36 Soapery, this is the final crafty recipe. Which works out well since we all could use extra soap these days, we are only washing our hands 2,420 times a day now.

Watermelon Soap

Ingredients:

  • 1 silicone soap mold
  • 3.3 oz of melt & pour soap base
  • 1 bottle of watermelon sorbet fragrance oil
  • Body safe mica powder, 1 red & 1 green
  • Glass measuring cup
  • Spatula

Directions:

  • Chop the soap base into small chunks and divide into two piles
  • Put one pile of soap into the glass measuring cup and mircrowave for 15 seconds, stir, then another 10-15 seconds until fully melted.
  • Add half of the fragrance and one of the color powders. Stir.
  • Pour into the mold.
  • Take a moment for this to harden (#twss). I popped it into the fridge because I have no patience.
  • Repeat the above steps with the remaining ingredients. Pour into mold, atop the first layer.
  • Let it sit for 30-60 minutes, then it’s ready to take out of the mold.
So, so pretty! And smells good too!
And enjoy! What song do you sing while washing your hands for the correct amount of time?😉
