Making my soap today. I just need to pick up some lard and I'm good to go. It feels like forever since I've made soap. Today is my only chance to make it; my grandson is coming over this afternoon to spend the night so there will be no time this afternoon or tomorrow. Here's hoping I can implement my vision.

Beardguy is it cold in the room where you made your soap? I work in an unheated old water mill building and in winter I have horrible trouble with crumbly soap that isn't lye heavy and only occurs near the bottom of the moulds. It only happens between November and February when the outside temps are at their coldest.

I made my soap today... the thing is, I wanted to do a ribbon pour but I added a leftover fragrance and it accelerated the trace heavily, so poured layers... I will cut it tomorrow hoping that they actually look like layers. *fingers crossed*

My soap was made yesterday and cut this morning. I'm happy with it and it smells amazing (lavender, rosemary, & peppermint). Now, I just need to take pics.

I haven't had a chance to make soap all month. I won't vote since I didn't try and all. My hands aren't in any condition to make any attempts either. Since I wound up caulking some of my apartment with my mom's help, my hands have been overworked.

I too haven't been able to soap the last couple weeks. In fact I made an attempt the first day the challenge was posted but my batter was thinner than I thought so lines didn't happen and I just haven't had time or room to make more. I finally bought more lye this weekend to make some but ended up making body butter and my first attempt at bath bombs.
😕
