AND here it is…..

31 Jan

While I can’t say that I’m in with the first soap in over 2 years I can say I’m *in friend* with it. Although it didn’t come out the way I wanted it. It wasn’t a total disaster and that I’m thankful for.

I got up extra early this morning because I could NOT wait to find out how it came out. First, I took off all the covers and box. And I said well it looks great! Then I un-molded it and said “not bad” then I cut the bars and said “well, definitely not what I was hoping for but still okay.”

SO,

here’s the glorious pic!

*THANK YOU* ALL of my AWESOME CUSTOMERS you  ROCK!!!!!!

And SO it begins!

YIPPEE YAHOO,

TOday was the day!

For what you ask?

TOday was the day that I made a batch of soap.

*hahahaha,  caution ramble about to happen…..*

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

THE first batch of soap since October 2014. YES! that is just what I said October 2014. I can’t believe it’s been that long it seems like just yesterday. But it wasn’t like yesterday. My hubby told me I should make a test batch because it’s been so long.

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Did I listen?  Did I listen?

The answer to that question would be NO! Hahaha, NO  of coarse I didn’t listen to him.  I thought well I’ve made hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of batches of soap. It’ll be like riding a bike.

You know what?

It wasn’t like  riding a bike.  Oh, don’t get me wrong. I know how to make soap but it’s the little things like how a recipe reacts in order to do certain designs.

But I persevered and got the soap done! My fingers, toes, and everything else is crossed waiting for the the unveiling tomorrow………..Here’s a preview of the top. This is FRESH and I’m hoping the inside looks just as good as the outside! What are your thoughts? Leave your comments below…..

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Wow! I am SOOOO excited just got most of my supplies to make soap & scrubs Yippee!!!

 My head has been up in the clouds these days fantasizing about making soap. Unfortunately, I have to work on listing and taking orders.

But today is a mile stone…….. I made a

Pre-Order listing for The Original LOVE scrub! You ask what is The Original LOVE scrub? It the most moisturizing spa-like sugar scrub that has so many great beneficial oils like avocado, jojoba & argan! Plus it’s scented with Lavender Essential oil to really take you away!

I’ve been pinching myself ALL day! and I mean ALL day! Finally after a very long, long, long hiatus I’ll be soaping once again!

Lilac1

Yay! I mean does life get any better not for me.

I love soaping! I love my customers! I love that they love what I do!

It’s going to be a lot different though this time around. When I was in New Jersey I sold soaps at the Farmers Market and at Craft shows. But this time around I really won’t be storing any soap. It will be make one or two batches sell them and then make more! Crossing my fingers that this ALL works out!

Let me know what are you interested in buying?

Wow, has it been a long time. I’ve been sort of relocated. I’m not able to create any soaps (which I’m dying to do) as of yet. I have to say I miss sharing ALL of my creations and/or soap recipes with you.
