Coconut Lime, Rootbeer and Enchanted Apple

Also sad to report that they have stopped making the Blue Raspberry Icee scent and I can't find another place that has it so the batch I just made will be my last :(

new molds

So what happens when you are having a hard time keeping up with production?!?!!? Time to get more molds! My dad saw my struggle and made me 2 more molds so that I can really crank out the soap when I need to. What a great x-mas present right?!!?! one on the left is my normal mold.

Should be able to get all the new soap pictures done tonight I think and I have a few more soaps to still make. Today will be coconut lime and I am also thinking of making a batch of soap in Crackling Firewood scent which is a blend of woods, raspberry and vanilla.

Still busy making soaps finished up the cherry cola, warm vanilla sugar, and sandalwood. About to finally start the Rootbeer soap(keep putting that one off for some reason) then I am heading over to check out a craft show.

far from slacking

I know it looks like I have been slacking cause I haven't been posting as much. Well I have just been so busy that I didn't have time to post! Been cranking out lots of soaps in an attempt to get stocked back up again and still been packing soap orders up.

Made batches of Cucumber Melon, Enchanted Apple, Jack Frost, Blue Raspberry Icee, Strawberry Cheesecake. Still need to make Cherry Cola, Warm Vanilla Sugar, Rootbeer, Coconut Lime and who knows what other ones.

I also had to find some time to decorate my nephews Wall-E birthday cake he turned 5 today!! Crazy he is that old already :)

Better pictures of the soaps to follow! Oh and the those are just a few of the flower soaps I made I didn't even get a chance to take pictures of a number of the others ones that shipped out.

photo area is back up!

Found sometime today to set up the photography stuff see bottom two pictures. So then it was time to get pictures taken of some pillar candles I have made and need to put up on Etsy still. Red/White/Pink is the Apple ones below I was talking about making. Other pillars are for the Coffee lovers the square one is Morning Coffee and the Taper one is Turkish Hazelnut Cafe. (this is just a few of the candles I took pictures of)

Well Cyber Monday was a big hit for me I was making and packing soap orders all day and night! I also kind of ran out of a number of soaps yesterday. I tried to stock up on most bars before my move but guess not enough. Had to order a bunch of supplies which should start showing up on friday. So you know what that means.......... I will be soaping all weekend and then some!
By the way is it just me or does it seem like things always run out at different times?!!?! I get enough soap oils then I run out of fragrance. Get that all stocked up then I run out of lye, or other random things just can't win it seems! :)
