For the past few weeks I've been super busy. Not in the fun, making lots of tutorials busy but in the carting a sick cat around to multiple vets (seriously, 3 in as few weeks) kind of a way. My kitty Marla went to have an ultrasound a little over an hour's drive away from home and the vet she saw said that she needed to have her kidney removed. Unfortunately for all of us he has his own surgery going down and was unable to do the removal. But another vet another hour away could do the surgery and Miss was scheduled to have a kidney removed earlier this week. Fab, right? But then the new vet had his own emergency and we have been rescheduled for next week. And until she gets this surgery, which will make her feel so much better, I've got to go to certain lengths to make sure she's taken care of. She's having a hard time eating and has lost tons of weight and needs to take in lots and lots of water because she has only 1 functioning kidney. So 3-4 times a day I blend up canned cat food and distilled water or kitten milk to serve up to her. She doesn't want to eat because she feels poorly and she hangs out under the master bed these days, so I scoot around on my hands and knees with this short broom thing because I know that if I can push it in front of her face and, hopefully maybe even get some on her nose for her to lick off, that she will almost always take that little dish of fish smelling milkshake looking awfulness clean out. Then I have to lay around rubbing my fingers together with my face shoved under the bed to convince my girl to come over so I can give Miss pain meds twice a day, an unfortunate thing but necessary until she can finally have her surgery. And then I have to wash her bedding, almost daily, because the medication makes her groggy and she has accidents in her sleep. The whole thing is just so sad but a healthier Marla is just around the corner once we get through all of this business :) I made some happy #emoji #catnip stuffed cat toys for my kitties since they seem to be digging their new Meow Mix food so much. Read all about it and get the tutorial and patterns to make some for your kitty cats! #ClubMeowMix #ad . . . #tabbymarla #tabby #tabbycat #graycat #graytabby #cat #cats #catsofinstagram #cutecatcrew #catoftheday #igcatjunky #ilovemycats #craft #crafts #calledtobecreative #makersgonnamake #iamcreative #dalb #dreamalittlebiggerblog #craftblogger A post shared by Dream a Little Bigger (@dreamalittlebiggerblog) on Apr 13, 2016 at 7:21am PDT I've been given a hard time about how ridiculous all of this has been but I don't believe in 'just a' anything when it's something (or someone) who matters very much to you. Marla isn't 'just a cat', she's my little fuzzy baby and I'll crawl around on that floor 5 times a day every day until I can get her fixed :) Unfortunately, and finally to the point for this project, for me it means my body is achy and awful because I'm not built for crawling around and jamming myself underneath Hollywood bed frames. And since I simply do not have the time for a nice soak in the tub, I decided to make a soothing Epsom salt soap bar so that I can get some relief even with a quickie shower. These amazing little bath bars and a hot shower are seriously going to help wash your aches and pains away. Trust me. I LOVE these things! Want to whip up some homemade help for sore muscles? For this project you will need: Epsom salt Melt and pour soap base (I used clear glycerine and goat's milk bases) Soap colorant Essential or scented oil (I used a the beachy Ocean Breeze fragrance oil from this Summer set) Spray alcohol Simple bar soap molds Melt your melt a clear soap base according to package directions and add soap colorant and scented oil. I added teal colorant and a lovely, beachy Ocean Breeze scented oil. To save some cha-ching on oils allow the base to cool. The hotter the melted soap is the more of the scent that will burn off. Okay, so I totally used the WRONG SALT for this project because in my haste while making the tutorial I grabbed the wrong bag. Womp, womp. But with the power of Photoshop can pretend like I got it right! Hahaha! :) Now, if you don't get the right stuff it will still work, as in it will make soap bars that are super pretty, it just won't do a darn bit of good for sore muscles AND the salt sort of dissolves as you make contact with it so it doesn't exfoliate, either, so in the case of the wrong salt it's for looks only. Now you're going to add a LOT of salt to the bars. You want your liquid base to be super slushy with the stuff but you need enough liquid soap that it can still move around freely when you stir. It's so seriously like a Slush Puppy consistency. Remember those? Should you get too much salt in the mix and you find you're having a hard time you can always add more soap base and toss the whole business in the microwave. You're going to lose some of your salt crystals this way, but it will work better in the end. While still liquid pour the salty soap into the bottom of your molds and allow a good 10 minutes at room temperature to begin setting up. Once the soap is no longer super hot, but while still malleable, push the salt mixture to pack it into the mold as tightly as you can. For a fun, almost natural stone-like look, go around and push
