The Next Big Thing

This blog is thirteen years old. Sheesh. It should be called Yo Mimi's Blog now. Thank you Google for the space. Here is my  NEXT BIG THING. I enjoy learning new things and currently am exploring the art of soap making. My grandmothers made soap in a pot outside over a fire using potash lye. I don't think they thought it fun nor an art form.
I have the luxury of experimenting with various oils, butters, herbs and fragrances. They made utilitarian soap, I get to make "frufru" soap. Sorry Grannies. You would have liked this better.

Here are some of my current experiments.

The fragrances are coconut lemongrass, lime margarita and a combination of the two.
