Cupcake Soap, Swirls, and Other Exciting News!!



Raspberry Cupcake Soap
I have been extremely busy making soap of course, but also with some custom orders and getting a little PR.  I also redesigned my banner for the blog and my Etsy shop.  What do you think?!

These are the cupcake soaps I have been working on lately.  I have been selling quite a bit wholesale and they are always popular during the holidays.  I have added several new "flavors:" Raspberry, Georgia Peach, a redo of my "Fresh Pear" ( now Ginger Pear), and Chocolate Mint. These are all available in the mini size as well.

Chocolate Mint Cupcake Soap
Although I have been restocking most of my soap bars in my traditional loaf molds, I have mixed it up and redesigned a few soaps using a slab mold.  I am having a ton of fun making all these swirls.  There is just so much more room to work.  Can you tell I am in love? <3 <3

I have been talking with the editor of a local magazine the last few months about doing a little feature on my cupcake soaps.  So here it is in the November issue of Sacramento Parent Magazine!

This week has also been pretty exciting.  A local news program will be having me on their show on Sunday (Good Day Sacramento - Channel 31 during the 7 o'clock hour).  I am quite nervous, but luckily it is a very casual show.  I don't do well with this sort of attention, so I am hoping I will be able to form a complete sentence, remember my name...you know, stuff like that. ;)

For those of you who are local (Northern California), I will be in Auburn the weekend after Thanksgiving (Nov. 26th and 27th from 10-5) at the Gold County Fair Grounds selling soap and bath goodies.  Also, you can catch me at the City of Roseville Craft Fair.  This event is at the Maidu Community Center in Roseville.  After that, I will be focusing on my online orders, getting stuff together for my own kiddos and family, as well as planning my late Winter and Spring Soap.  Crazy!!
