Happy weekend! I hope you’re all having a great Saturday and week. The past week has been beyond full and to tell you the truth, a little overwhelming. Work-wise, I’ve been busy finalizing recipes for Soap Queen TV and approving new products galore. The team and I are filming three new full length SoapQueen.TV videos on Saturday. The projects include cold process cupcakes, melt and pour gems and a sugar scrub. If you haven’t already, be sure to checkout the newest video that was released on Monday, the Silky Berry Cold Process Soap!
At home, the kids and I are busy making the most out of the warm summer weather. Below, Lily is enjoying her cousin Alise’s outdoor play house. That girl can spend hours on anything that involves climbing, jumping and sliding …it was definitely a good investment because she keeps asking to “Go see Baby Alise.” I’m pretty sure she’s asking to “Go see Baby Alise’s Play house.” =). Jamisen has been attending several summer camps and has been having a blast. I love listening to his stories about all the various activities (gnome hunts!) and projects when I get home.
Below, check out my favorite pins, tweets and ‘grams from the past week!
Left to right, clockwise:
- These Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream Sandwiches look absolutely amazing! Most kids love peanut butter and jelly, so I’m sure these would be a hit anywhere and everywhere.
- This pink and multi-colored layered soap by Simply Soap is so girly and happy looking…I love it! The stamp really adds a great finishing touch.
- Back to school is right around the corner. This Back to School Teachers Gift would be a great way to start the year on the right foot.
- I love the pink and green color combination in these Handmade Sea Salt Spa Soap Bars from Emily of the Soap and Restless. They remind me a little bit of watermelon =)
If you haven’t already, be sure to checkout the latest full length video on Soap Queen TV! This Silky Berry Cold Process Project is made with real silk and a delicious smelling berry fragrance combination.
Last weekend, the Bramble Berry team and I enjoyed watching a Bellingham Bells game, a local baseball team. On the left, Lily is enjoying all the action. On the right is the amazing bounty from the garden. This summer has been quite warm and my garden is loving it. The kale is taller than Lily is at this point!
- According to Facebook, “LOL,” is dying and “haha” is on the rise. Dar; I feel not-trendy! =) Haha.
- McDonald’s is working hard to reinvent themselves to help their slumping sales. Here are 3 reasons why it won’t work, along with great business takeaways for every business owner.
- If you find yourself covered in mosquito bites during the summer, help is on the way!
- For most, a coffee stain means a stained white blouse or rug. This artist turned coffee stains into true works of art.
- Did you know many of our favorite foods including energy bars and deli meats were invented for soldiers? Click here to read more, including what the military is currently working on that will be in supermarkets in the future. Hint…it involves cheese!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! To keep up with the latest soapy social media throughout the week, you can follow me on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest, Vine and YouTube and Snapchat.

Your family is adorable. Your children are sooooo cute. Blessings to all of you
Aw, thank you. We really feel so lucky that our little ones are healthy and happy. And, we love doing things with them on the weekends during the summer. I’m dreading Fall/Winter already! =)
