    Cute! I'm surprised the deer aren't nibbling the snowman's nose!

    @Relle What are those?!?

    And when do we start making soap for the holidays :) Actually, I’ve already started on salt bars. Everyone I know is getting one this year.

    Tasmanian Devils from Australia. they are in danger from a disease that is wiping them out.
    You can start making your Christmas soaps whenever you like, just don't leave it to the last minute. That's why the countdown, please yourself.

    I was not aware of the disease problem, but just found this recent news piece from the BBC that offers some hopeful news: https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-47659640

    Planning is definitely important with soap. It’s also time to think about Fall for those of us in the northern hemisphere!

    I've been away and I am about to start my soap for christmas. I've already done my salt bars as I cure them for 9 months minimum. Thanks for the reminder, though, Relle.

    Ok, now we're at 14 weeks and 4 days. Love this little guy. [​IMG]
    That gives approx. 2 wks to make soap (end of sept), a good 8 wk cure (Oct/Nov) and December to start wrapping and package for presents.

    Hubby asked me today if I would make soap and candles for the folks in his office this year (I made candles only for them last year). 3 men and 6 women. Two different bars and one candle each. I'm so excited!! A reason to make soap other than "Because it's fun!"

    What might make it even more fun... track your time & expenses and hand him an invoice when you're finished! :D

    HO, HO, HO, just over 10 weeks to go. If you haven't already. you'd better get moving and make that soap for that present.
