Welcome to the SMF December 2022 Un-Challenge – (No more) New Year’s Resolutions

Welcome to the SMF December 2022 Un-Challenge. For this un-challenge you will create soaps that have been on your to-do list for a long time. They might turn into your 2023 new year’s resolution that you’re probably not going to do, so we’re going to do them now. This is your sign to start that soap that you’ve been thinking about for ages but were too scared/overwhelmed/intimidated/…. to try and we’re going to help each other overcome the hurdles and challenges to make the soap we’ve been dreaming about but never started. Please be extra kind and supportive in this thread.

****
1. Any SMF member may participate in this Un-Challenge, regardless of length of membership or number of posts.
2.The soap must be made after the Un-Challenge announcement is posted (so do not post pictures of soaps that were made before 12/05/2022).
3. Make and post pictures of as many soaps as you would like. There will not be a separate entry thread and there will not be a vote, so post pictures of your creations in this thread at any time. Photos of failures are just as welcome as photos of successes.
4. If your design is inspired by another maker, please give them credit.
5. A sign up list will be posted, however, if you make a soap and want to share it but haven't officially signed up, please feel welcome to post a picture! Un-Challenges are meant to be relaxed and fun!
6. Experiments are always interesting. If you learned something, please share. Likewise, if you would share anything about your process/result we'd all be interested in seeing that.
7. As always, please keep comments kind and have fun!

****

Little side note.. You don't need to pick just one soap from your to-do list, you can just do them all! 😁😉
Start with the one that's been on there for the longest, or one that's feasable considering the tools you have... Don't think too much just soap! 😁

I make ZNLB, HP and CP. I love bubbles so I've been hesitant to make this one. Have to tell you I was so surprised with the results.
Thank you so much @Zany_in_CO for sharing your recipe!
I haven't make a CP in over a year, so this was a nice change, also first time using a stamp, So cool!
To try to increase the bubbles, and make it more fluid, I made the HP with dual lye, and added a polyol mix (thanks again Zany for telling me was this was) after cook.

Full recipe is in the attached images
Merry Christmas everyone 🎄
Thanks Zany! I'm your biggest fan!
