Summer Studio Tour: 1

Today I'm joining Heather, at Beauty That Moves, with a summer studio post. The idea is to share some glimpses of your creative time throughout the week. Sometimes I need a bit of spurring on, to make sure I fit in some creative time, so this seemed just the ticket. This picture is one of the vintage silk scarves I'll be turning into eye pillow covers. The first step is washing them with my homemade liquid soap, and letting them line dry.

A batch of lavender soap, ready to transfer to a drying rack.

Some ivory silk with designs sketched out in glue. When dry, they'll be painted, then sewn into eye pillows.

Some patchouli soap, just poured into the mold.

How about you? What creative endeavors have you been up to this week? Join in, and share a glimpse with us each Friday.

The vintage scarf is beautiful. I have a lavender eye pillow that I soothing. What a great use for that material. I'm off to go check out your Etsy shop now. :)
