My Donations for Teacher Appreciation Week and Front Line Workers

I've never been the best baker. So, even if I make cookies, they would be hard to digest. I've never been a great cooker either. So, if I cooked, I might burn something down. I can't knit, draw impressively, make paper figures, do origami, or make chocolates. But, I wanted to show my true gratefulness and appreciation, and hence why I ended up buying $100 worth of soap base, lip balm base, and candle base.

I ordered a batch on Amazon, and ended up going it to Michaels buying more there. On top of that, just a day ago, I ordered more on Amazon, so I'm planning to make another batch, but that part 2 will come later. I wanted to do something handmade and special for my teachers and for front line workers, while at the same time writing poems. (For those of you who don't know, I am the president of my school's poetry club. And April is National Poetry Month). I ended up trying out the soap making and falling in love with it. In the picture below you'll see my progression.
