weekly verse
Matthew 17:20 He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”


  Pinterest: Gardener’s Hand Scrub
Today’s Pinterest Fail or Nail comes from here.  When I saw this on Pinterest I thought it would make a great gift in almost any situation.  I sent Aaron out to get the soap for me and he came back with white instead of pink.  The soap still smelled fine- just not as pretty since there isn’t a soft pink touch to it. 
So I filled the jar 3/4 full of sugar…
Then I poured in soap until about halfway to the lip of the jar.  The original poster said to fill to the bottom of the lip but as I was adding soap I thought that might be too much. 
And then I stirred it all together…
I added about a nickel-sized dollop of soap just to make sure.  I ended up with a thick hand scrub.  It smells okay but honestly I think the pink soap would have had a better hand scrub smell.  I didn’t have extremely dirty hands to test out how well it worked but I tried it out anyway. 
It felt amazing while washing my hands and there were a lot of suds which I love.  The only thing I don’t care for is when you rinse your hands they have the same feeling as when you dry them after washing dishes- not silky soft at all.  I would definitely make this again but next time I think I’ll do half soap and half coconut oil.  I think adding in some oil will help give the silky soft feeling I was missing. 
So overall I think this was a nail- I still want to give it as gifts and will with my tweaks.  I’ll be back tomorrow with a recipe you won’t want to miss!
