    While cooped up inside due to the frigid weather last week (and school, where I work, cancelled), I decided to make some soap

    And no, it’s just what I did during the Polar Vortex. No polar soap, sorry!

    Nice soaps. Sadly, I still had to drive into work. I have driving when it's snowing. People in my region just don't know how to handle it, so it seems.

    Amazing soaps! Love the earthy tones in the first one. And the ghost swirl looks really good! I tried that technique....lets just say the way it looked after I cut it, I was a little scared to zap test it lol I'll have to try again.

    I love the ghost swirl - definitely worthy of the name Polar Vortex

    With apologies to all Canadian members - I remember when I was growing up in Wisconsin, extreme cold weather was ALWASY blamed on Canada - for the life of me I cannot remember the name - but it was "Canadian something"

    The weather man would show this huge low pressure zone zooming over the border from Canada. No WALL could stop it! HAH

    Oooh I didn't realize when I typed haha but yes, I've heard how cold it gets.
    Looks kinda like your glycerine rivers in the inverted colors beer soap, which is why I mentioned it there too hehe
