    First attempt at piping...

    I used the sample pack and actually added white to each to mute them a little. I had a customer ask for a pastel colored rainbow. Thanks for the nice remarks :)

    Silicone mold making

    I used Soft 107 from MPK Enterprises and so far I have only done melt and pour in the molds I have made so no I have not frozen them. When I do regular cold process soap I am sure I will freeze them after cure to remove.

    Silicone mold making

    No I did not freeze it first. I did not even wash it. I should have planned a little better and covered more of the berry but I did not know how easy it would be to take it out. It was sooooooooooooo easy.

    Silicone mold making

    Just thought I would share. I had no idea making my own silicone molds for embeds was so easy. I used Soft 107 silicone from MPK Enterprises. It cost me $42 including the shipping for 2 pounds of the stuff. This used about one quarter of it? . . . maybe less. I wanted small round embeds so I...

    First attempt at piping...

    Thanks guys. This was also the first soap I did CPOP all the way. It really made the texture harder and very smooth. I like it and will do it again.

    So I bought a fancy piece of soap...

    Wow thanks for posting. It is amazing to see the differences in prices and quality. I do the same thing and buy an occasional expensive bar to see what it is all about. You always learn something from it.

    First attempt at piping...

    My first attempt at piping soap. I think I waited a little to long but got a good feel for it. I made a rainbow colored soap and added the last little bit of each color to the inside of the piping bag. It is scented with MMS Champagne Sugar and it smells divine!

    A question for all you bee keeper people :)

    My side yard yesterday. My husband used my laser thermal thermometer to check that the bees were still alive. It worked and he figured out where in the hive the ball of bees were. They form a ball around the queen to keep her warm all winter. Yes I agree that raw honey is amazing! Of course I am...

    Failed bath melts

    Fizzing Bath Melts I use un-deoderized cocoa butter, baking soda, citric acid, Lavender EO and a touch of almond oil. The scent of chocolate and lavender is heaven! They fizz and melt in the tub and keep very well as long as you are not holding them because the do melt in your hands.
