I was working on a custom order this weekend, and I took some pictures and it hit me... This would make the most adorable gift basket set! The individual items priced together at only $38.00!!! Some ribbon, a nice basket, some fluff, maybe a nice soap dish/candle holder. I'd say I have my $50.00 Holiday item! If you mixed up the colors, what a wonderful Fall set in shades of burgundy and burnt orange with hints of red? Or a Christmas set, green and red and gold...Or a winter set shimmery blues, white and silver?? :D :D :D And don't even get me started on the possible Holiday scent combination's!!! :lol:

Thank you :) I think my pictures need to be a bit brighter...

I had a little artistic ground with the design. The customer was SO wonderful to work with!

Thanks y'all!!

They were for my Etsy. I get a lot of custom Hello Kitty orders on Etsy. This was the biggest one for sure though.

Annnnnnd. I just ordered a TON of fall/winter fragrance oil samples :oops: Probably shouldn't have done it while I was so excited.....

Hi Lane,

I figured since my last photography suggestions went soooooooooooo well :wink: :roll: I would chance it to give you one more...........you wanted to bump up the brightness a bit on those pics, maybe a couple of degrees more of contrast might do the trick. Anyway, the best thing I find about these photo editing prog's is that they have an "undo" button!!! Totally screw-up proof!!! :p Even for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :p

tootles,

Della :D

PS~~you are a soapy artiste!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

Lane are those soy tealights or parafin? The color mix is an awesome idea! Very beautiful once again.

Thanks everyone! :)

Digit- I want something that says "Certified Soap Stylist".... If anyone ever asks me what I "do" that's what I am going to say!

beadella- Thanks for the tip. I had to edit them SO much already, After looking at them for an hour I had to step away from the computer. Now that's it has been a few days, I am playing with them again! :) It would be nice if I could just take the darn picture perfect in the first place. :roll:

pepperi27- They are all soy. I do a container/votive blend! Was having to many problems with the CB being too soft and the VB being too hard, after a month of experimenting, I have a "master recipe" sheet for all of the votive and container blend percentages to use.

The color mix was a complete accident! :lol: The green ones are Caramel Apple colored with BlackLight responsive neon green, The pink ones are pink sugar dyed with just a hint of red, accidentally got a couple of them too dark...And the white ones are sweet fig with no dye. Once I had them all together, I was like, WOW! Those look pretty darn sweet. It also happened to be chance they matched the soaps!! *Looks around* Um wait... i TOTALLY meant to do that! :lol: :lol: :lol:
