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!

Happy Saturday!

As some of you may or may not know…. we have an ETSY store and OPEN SKY store and we’re very active on Facebook. Plus, we sell at the local Farmers market during the Spring/Summer. It’s been an absolute ride this past year. I can not believe how we’ve picked up! 

AND

it’s because of our Customers (THANK YOU!)

that we were able to donate this food (well, that was the last donation of the year) to FOOD PANTRY!

(IF, you didn’t know we donate a percentage of ALL sales for food for the pantry)

~Colorants for COLD PROCESSED soap~

11 Oct

Hi everyone!  Hope your day is going well:)

COLORS!!!

Yes, I’m going to try and talk about colors a bit.

Colors

Who doesn’t LOVE colors?

Not me,

 I “LOVE” colors and I love colors that really Pop!

Most of the time I use  manufactured colors.

But, I have been trying to work with natural colors more.

For this Blog post I’ll be sticking to the manufactured colors though.

MICA”S:  (powdered) Natural minerals (quartz-like) that have a sparkle to them.  Colored mica’s usually have  been coated with  FDA approved dyes or pigments . They come in a wide variety of colors. Be careful when using them. You don’t want to use too much or your bubbles can be very colorful too…. You need very little to color your soap. 1/4 to 1 tsp per pound of soap. Depending on what your desired outcome is.

**I mix mica’s w/ a little bit of avocado or sweet almond oil**

OXIDES & ULTRAMARINE’S:  These are Pigments. Although, there are natural pigments from the earth (such as iron) the kind used in soap making are Man made and FDA approved. Here’s a list of  ingredients that may be in them: koalin, sodium carbonate, sulfur, silica, carbon & resin

**1 tsp per pound of soap** You can use more depending on your intended results

What a Week! with cold Process Soap……

7 Sep

My life has been so hectic all I can say is WOW!

This is what’s been going on.

In case you didn’t know, I’m a Professional member of the Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild.

Which is a Fantastic organization..They’ll are GREAT people. I can not say enough about them….

When you sign up as a Professional member you also have access to a Free web-store. That’s where I had my Domain forwarding too. I thought it was a Great idea. But I guess for someone like me that doesn’t know to much about the computer thing…It was turning out to be a nightmare.

New customers (if you were one of them I apologize) were not able to either

One: pay for the order

Two: open an account

or there were other things I’m just not in the mood to get into…

I was starting to get a little bit annoyed. (It’s not the Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild’s fault, I want to make that clear)

So, this past week I have taken all (most of) my items/ inventory and moved them over the the Etsy Store.  There is something about writing descriptions that is so unappealing……

Anyway, now my Etsy Store has more items than it used to you can take a Peek here….

The weekend is almost here and I have inventory & writing  of the black boards before tomorrow’s Farmers Market…

O’ and here are some new soaps that are curing:

Acai Berry & Satin

 

CINNAMON

 

Orange & Cinnamon
