Tonight, I am experimenting with whipped shea butter. I have been fantasizing about this for a long time. Fellow body product makers, I am sure you understand this insane and all-consuming desire to try your hand at a new item.
Something else occurred to me this evening. After work (ye ole day job), I zipped into the grocery store for some supplies and I thought about how weird it must be to watch someone throw 2 enormous containers of olive oil down, along with multiple bottles of grapeseed oil, boxes and boxes of cornstarch and baking soda. Even weirder - the physical joy I express when the store is having a sale on olive oil. 101 ounces for 12 bucks - WOW! I just go bonkers. And you ought to see me scan the craft store. Looking for anything - ANYTHING - that could be used as an ingredient, packaging, or tool. I guess that's how you know that this little passion could become the one thing you never get tired of doing. I believe you all know what I mean here.
Wish me luck with the whipped shea butter. I promised some gals at work that they could be my guinea pigs tomorrow. *insert Vincent Price laugh at the end of Thriller*
