Hello everyone and welcome to blind hobbies!  I hope all of you who are blind or VI will join my blog and share all your wonderful skills with one another. 
After losing my sight I didn't have any hobbies and a friend introduced me to soap making.  Hmmm, I wasn't sure if this was a good idea, and well to make a long story short, I make shower gels and lotions a enjoy it very much.  
This Christmas  (with my 13 year old daughter we made Sugar Plum Fairy shower gel and lotion for her teachers And friends.   This fragrant is a little fruty and at first smells a lot like lemon but after it is all mixed together it smells wonderful.   It is great to get kids involved it makes them feel good and she had a wonderful time and bragging to her teachers how she made their Christmas gifts.  
We made a big mess, but we made adjustments on my next batch and learned how to get it into the bottles much better instead of all over ourselves.  
For my sisters and nieces I made Pink Champaigne shower gel and lotion to match.  This seem to be a big winner with my family.  The fragrent smell just like fresh Champaign, and I colored it pink so I could call it Pink Champaign. 
I don't know how much I will post but will do as much as possible, I would like any of you to join and chat about your hobbies, kids, questions and have fun. 
If by any chance you sell your products, feel free to post your advertisement, but please I don't want to make this anadvertisement blog only.  
Next time I will give some of my favorite sites where I like to buy my scents, bases, packageing, and other good stuff.
