In non-Maked crafting related news (i.e. personal crafting) - my boyfriend and I did our first batch of cold-process soap making over the weekend! I lured him into the world of crafting by explaining the dangers of working with sodium hydroxide (lye). ;) I also sold him on the idea with this little factoid: "Commercial soap manufacturing takes out the glycerin (moisturizer) from the soap and sells it to cosmetics manufacturers for more profit." That's pretty uncool.
Really, it's already been a success because the boyfriend wants to do another batch, something fancier this time with scents and additives. =)
