    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!

    MMS order arrived today!

    I'll be busy soaping on Friday! I ordered some new 1oz FO to see if I like any of them and I have to say that Sensual is amazing! I love it and so does my DH (yay!)

    New Technique

    I saw a link I think was posted by DanaHuff and thought I would give it a try. I like it. I used Flowerbomb which is an amazing scent, expensive but amazing. It did move a little fast for me but I managed. Thanks DanaHuff. Here is the link

    Looking for an emulsified sugar scrub....

    That's not waxy. I found one on the net that uses Almond and Avocado oil, Shea, Mango and Cocoa butters. Ewax, Stearic Acid and beeswax. I made it and it left a layer of wax on my hands so I added a bunch more Oil, sugar and some Hydrovance and Vitamin E. It's much butter but I am wondering if...

    Wishful thinking....

    I wish we could see a map with dots/pins showing where all of us soapers were located. It would be fun to see where everyone is all over the world and it would be nice to have local meet and greets. I know that the local beekeepers have a site they can go to to see where all the local bee yards are.

    Sharing a tip....

    On how I keep my work surface clean and safe from raw soap for free. Whenever I shop at Costco I pick up a couple of the large brown cardboard sheets that sit between the stacks of papertowles and toilet paper. They are more like heavy duty construction paper and they are FREE! They are perfect...
