A brilliant day

Had a fabulous day today with my fav crafty peeps. Michelle hosted a present making day - encouraging us to make high quality presents at reasonable prices!
The first picture is of an Egyptian Goddess kit which has Jasmine and Gold bath oil, milk and Jasmine bath salts and honey and milk hand milled soap. As well as mixing all the ingredients by hand we then went onto use our papercrafting skills to decorate them. Both Michelle and I had bought some fab stamps from The Stampman and Michelle had also found some fab papers at the Kanban outlet in Shipley. The first kit I have made for my pal Pat who I am seeing tomorrow. I had bought Pat a gardeners handcare kit however the soap had leaked all over it ruining the tin and other bits so it was not a kit any more! This is much nicer I think and I hope she will feel like a Goddess when she has a bath with them.

The Mens kit smells divine - combining Frankincense and Myrrh with Grapefruit oil it has a most gorgeous aroma and sounds so expensive. what a fabulous thing for any chap - this kit has a shaving oil and a spritzer for after shaving. The lovely brown bottles and labels give a real old apothecary feel to the whole gift. Although the oil is good for use to shave ladies legs too - so I may be using it all myself!

I have had a fabulous day - the room was filled with the aroma of different essential oils and as always the company was perfect. Huge thanks to Michelle for a brilliant day xx
Hope your day was good too!
