the many colors of Love Spell soap

This was a total color mess up because I was trying to make it the same blue as the bar above but used the wrong blue and it ended up turning white.

New batch is a soft purple with a soft blue swirl.

So over the years I have changed the colors of this scent with nearly every batch. Thought I would show the history leading up to the newest batch.

Wonder what color this one will be next!

Happy Easter

Getting all set up

Glitter eggs!

I love to color eggs. I don't have any kids but my nephews and niece were more then happy to come hunt for eggs at my house. The Easter bunny also left them 3 baskets.

I do have to say I think I snacked on too much candy myself in the last day. Good thing this is only 1 time a year!

Zombie Punch soap

Half way done with the swirl

Swirl done


Made a new batch of Zombie Punch. This is on my list of personal favorite scents. I can't get enough of this scent in bath bombs either! I used flaming red oxide and activated charcoal for the colors.

Zombie Punch is a sassy, citrus blend of lemon, lime and orange juice, apricot and papaya nectars, and garnished with fresh pineapple slices.

follow up on colors

Blue Sugar type before

Blue Sugar type after

Coconut after(use to be solid white with glitter)

So not all soaps that start pretty stay pretty. Blue Sugar type is a tough scent to soap color wise. It is a darker oil and has vanilla in it so it will shift. I used vanilla stabilizer to try and keep the shift from being too bad. But over time this bar got a mind of it's own and has totally changed.

Same goes for the coconut bar which I have discontinued. Started out a pretty white but is now an odd combo of white and strange brownish see picture.

I figure even with the Blue Sugar shift it is ok cause it is a guys soap and it still looks male friendly. Yes I would have liked it to stay the nice pretty blue/white/black but I can live with it.

Can't win them all I guess?!??!

Getting my bingo cards ready

Bingo time! (Me)

My Grandma :)

Well I took a night off from soap making to go play bingo with my Grandma and Aunt for the night. None of us won but I was 1 number away during one which is the closest I have ever been. My Grandma got 1 number away in one round then 2 numbers away in another so she got pretty close too!

Now back to soap I go, looks like tonight I will be making 3 batches of lavender. I have more supplies coming in this next week so then I will be really working on stocking up the normal soaps I carry. I am about a month away from my first show so time to get on it!! :)
