Valentine's Day Soap and Other Projects

I have not posted here in such a long time.  The holidays were busy, exciting, and exhausting all at once.  Although I thoroughly enjoyed them, I have to say that I am happy that the girls are back in school and we are back in some sort of schedule.  I have been quite busy restocking soap and designing some new soaps for the coming year.

Red Velvet Valentine Cupcake Soap

 These are soaps that have been freshly cut and will be cleaned up and ready in a few weeks.  The White Tea and Ginger is a new to me.  The scent is refreshingly sweet and pleasant.  I colored the soap using rose clay and yellow silt clay.  Although I usually opt for bright colors in my soap, I am really enjoying the muted, natural tones of this soap.

Lavender Herb

I also made a fresh batch of Bee Clean Soap.  It is made with beeswax and honey, which gives the soap a mildly sweet scent.  This is quite popular with those who don't like color and scent in their soap.

Now that I am back on schedule and have a bit of my sanity back, I hope to be posting many more soap creations and pictures. I have one more surprise that I have been working on, but I want to have it cured and cleaned up before I post pictures.  So stay tuned...
