soap makover

So my new goal is to work on switching a number of glycerin soaps over to cold process. Doing all these shows I see the cp soaps sell a ton better then the glycerin so I have decided to try some out in cp soap and see if they sell better. Some scents just don't work in cp soap so those will stay glycerin.

Well first up in the makeover was Blue Sugar type figured that was a good place to start since the male friendly soaps move really good. I had this one in glycerin but it would hardly get picked up, so will be interesting to see how it does at the show I have this coming weekend.

Cinnamon Pumpkin Pie

Vanilla Bean


Bayberry, Holiday Wassail, Pumpkin Pie, Gingerbread

Well these are some of the recent candles I finished. Most were for an order and some of the others are to take to the holiday shows.

Small soap break coming cause I ran out of lye! Crazy how fast I went through 50 lbs of lye, but more is on the way! Guess it is ok cause I need to get back to bath bombs, glycerin soap and making up some gift baskets.

I have some new soaps to show in a few more days just have to get around to taking all the pictures.

Fall Colors

So I decided I needed a day away from soap making. I have been eating breathing and thinking soap for months! So decided to head up to the mountains to check out the fall colors. See link below for all the pictures. Above are just a few from the day.

Figured might as well put some of the stuff I learned in photo school to use and keep those skills sharp.

What do you all do to get some "away" time?

cupcake 2.0

Strawberry Cheesecake

Mystery Scented

Lychee Red Tea

See holes in the frosting!

So finally time to show one of my two new molds!

I made the cupcake soaps that the Soap Queen showed on her blog but they haven't been too great at the shows. They do sell really good but the main problem is the frosting is just a touch soft and let me tell you everyone has to poke them to see if they are real. I even have people more or less poke way into them like the pictured one. So it was time to make a change to the cupcake soaps so they would be more user friendly.

Really digging the new cupcakes I just need more time to come up with scents and color combos. I had a few at the last show and sold out right away so I think these will be a good change.
