And SO it begins!

29 Jan

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…..

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

I’m going to have a Busy week making Soap, especially Loofah Soap!

24 Jul

I had another busy week at the Boonton Farmers market. The funny thing is that my online customers buy completely different soaps than my farmers’ market customers. I just can’t figure out why? But they do……

Anyway, I’m almost “Sold out” of all the Loofah soap I made. People are just  loving it. Who knew?

Loofah Soap

This is what some of them said:

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the loofah soap

“Keep stock on that loofah boy, I love it!

(of coarse I’m not a boy but I understood what they were saying)

I’m just amazed and thankful that they are loving it! So guess what I’m doing the next few days? Yep! making Loofah Soap. I am so happy that people are loving my soaps. I guess it’s because I’m a people pleaser. It just bothers me when someone isn’t pleased w/ one of my soaps that I have to make it right……

P.S.  if you are interested in buying a bar – this is where you can buy Loofah Soap!

Have a great Day! I’m off to make soap:)
