Good happy Friday afternoon.  Ready for the weekend?  I am!  The weather here in Chicago today is beautiful; the sun is shining and it's a whopping 40 degrees!  It feels like springtime!  I wish springtime this weekend for all of you too, my friends.

I'm sharing something with you now that isn't a paper craft... but still a craft.  Don't these fudge and fondue goodies look absolutely yummy?  Well, you can't eat them because they're my handmade soaps!

They are delicious in the bath though -- LOL!  I call them "Life's Simple Pleasures":

Go ahead!  Click on the picture for an enloargement if you feel like drooling!!!

I love making toiletries too, and I'm making boxes of goodies to give to all my "mommy" relatives and friends for Mother's Day and wanted you to have a "taste" of them too.

Now in the meantime, don't forget to stay tuned in for my RAK details (that is unless you guess what it is)!

I'll be seeing you!

Amazing Audrey, i had to click on the picture just to see if I could tell that they weren't really food. I still can't tell! I bet the smell great too.

flowerdisco said...

Audrey Frelx said...

paperscissors said...

i trust you that they are not edible but the lucky moms that receive them still have to be convinced as the presentation box still tells me there are bonbons inside...great talent and endless energy!!! do you have a crafting fairy that shakes her magic wand and projects get done or do you have more hours in a day than i have? i only have 24!!!

Audrey Frelx said...

I wish I had a crafting fairy because then my crafts would be perfect! No, I just put things together in between everything I have to do: cleaning, crafting, cooking, crafting, sleeping, crafting, etc., etc., etc. -- LOL!

Sheila aka SassyLady said...

Wow!!! you are such a taltented lady, I am on your Mom list, right?
And, I thought I guessed that it was a music box to hold music for My Gypsy Woman so she could do the Gypsy Happy Dance wherever she went! What gives?

Sandy from Ukiah said...

WOW Audrey, those are just gorgeous, you are one very talented lady..

Audrey Frelx said...

Ahhhh, Sheila, that's just not the right answer either -- but it was a good try!

Audrey Frelx said...

Audrey Frelx said...
