Weird Soap

I made this soap a few weeks ago. It's Brown Sugar & Fig. Funny thing is when I cut into it... Anyone else see the resemblance to Jack from Nightmare before Christmas??

It's jammin' time!

It's that time of year again to start making your favorite jams & jellies. Making jam is on of my favorite things to do, next to making soap. We go every year and pick strawberries in June. My kids are older teens but they still enjoy going and picking berries, filling their baskets. So far this year I have made strawberry jam, strawberry & blackberry jam and just yesterday I made a blueberry jam. I'm still waiting for enough of my peppers to ripen in my garden, then I will make a hot pepper jelly.It's one of my favorites. Jam on!
