My dad loves to make things with wood: tables, desks, chests, etc. So when I mentioned to him that I might want to make a wooden soap mold, my dad graciously volunteered to make one for me. I told him it was no hurry, that I am perfectly happy with my log molds, but I would like to have a wooden slab mold in the future. So, a couple weeks later, he and my mom gave one to me for my birthday and bought dividers for it and everything! Like I said before, I have always been happy with my log molds, but with all the awesome soap swirling going around, I wanted to play. Thanks Dad!
This is my first soap with the mold, and I am completely in love. It was so much fun to have such a large area to work with. I can see that I will use this mold a lot in the near future. I just didn't know what I was missing!
I have also been working on some new lip balms. The tubes in the back are the new ones. I made up some new labels that are a little cleaner looking that the old ones. I have to take some product pics for the Etsy shop, and then I will be ready to add them. The new flavors are Acai, Asian Pear, and Creme de Menthe. I also made some in Butter Creme, Coconut, and Passionfruit Rose.
Cupcake soaps have been quite a hit at the farmer's market I attend each week. I make some this weekend in Blackberry Sage and Sweet Strawberry to replenish my supply. I am loving the new glitters I have been using. They add a hint of color along with the sparkle.
A few more pictures of the market this week.
