7-up type soap!

Well I got around to making the 7-up type soap this weekend. Didn't come out exactly like I had planned because I guess I didn't wait long enough to pour the second layer. I ended up with the layers blending together, but I must say I was very pleased with how that ended up looking. Had to do a back lighting photo to show how cool it looks.
The bubbles on top are pretty cool, but they are on the fragile side so maybe it was for the better my other bubble layer ended up being blended in.

Hello Sweet Thang soap

Here is the other soap I made on Saturday.
Hello Sweet Thang: Raw Turbino Sugar, Lemon Zest, Meringue, Whipped Cream and Madagascar Vanilla notes make up this heady concoction. We can't get enough of it! This fragrance is super sweet but the lemon zest notes tone it down to make it a surprisingly refreshing blend. Not like the over the top lemon scents that are out there.
Really loving this scent!
The 7-up type soap is coming along I was able to get one to stick together. Going to attempt a loaf of it when I get some time so fingers crossed it stays stuck together!!

7-up type scent?!?!?!?

Round 1

Round 2

see where the top split off :(
I am introducing new scents to my line to go along with my Cherry Cola soap. First one up is 7-up type: As sweet and bubbly as a new can of lemon-lime soda.

This scent is amazing and it smells just like 7-up! Everyone at my office was blown away by how good this smells!

I am still in testing on this one cause I want it to be super cool and it just isn't there yet but I thought I would show you how it is coming along so far and see what you all thought about them.

First round I wanted to try some dots in it similar to the 7-up cans(diet more so) and I wanted to create bubbles. Well I have to say it looks ok but still not good enough. Couldn't decide if I should do more dots, less, bigger or smaller ones.

In the end I ended up expanding on the bubble look and I thought it looked great in the mold. But I ran into a small problem as it separated some when I took it out of the mold. I am going to attempt this one again to see if I can get the layers to stick together better or not. If they don't stick better then it will be round 3 of figuring out another idea to try.

Once I master this scent I have another one for my cola/soda type line that I need to work on so stay tuned for the next scent.....

new pink sugar and black raspberry vanilla soaps

Back in action for making soap this weekend. Been running low on a number of scents so started with these two. Also started testing ideas for a really great new scent I am working on, but round 1 didn't come out like I wanted. So more testing to do before I show what I am working on.

candles for a Celebrity auction

left to right Turkish Hazelnut Cafe, Cookie Jar, 2 Granny's Pie Crust, Fresh Brewed Coffee, Pumpkin Cheesecake

I know I haven't posted anything good recently but that is because I am still catching up from vacation and I had a candle order in.

I got an order for candles that will be going into a gift basket that is getting donated to a Celebrity auction event. Hoping this will bring me some new clients as there will be 750 people at the event.

I have to catch up on some soap batches that are getting low but after that I have 2 new great scents I can't wait to soap. So keep an eye out for what I will be adding to my soap line.
