    Soaping is great therapy. Hope you and your sister find consolation in this troubling time.

    Oh, @Nanooo48 , I am so very sorry to hear of your family's pain and loss. It is a terrible tragedy. I am glad that you found some outlet with your soap making. I wish I was close enough to hug you.

    I am in Arizona now. I took the soonest flight I could and took an unpaid leave of absence from work to be with my sister. She ended up having an 11 hour life saving surgery. Longest 11 hour wait of my life.... the placenta grew like cancer in her body. Through the uterus and through her bladder in 3 different places. The condition is called placenta Acreta. And it was one of the worst cases the trauma surgeon has ever seen. The only other two worst one he’s seen was where he was performing cpr on the the other two patients.. I’m so thankful it didn’t result in that with her.. she needed many transfusions due to hemmoraghing and there was just so much involved but all in all Iris Rayne lost her life to save her mommy and as sad as we all are to go through this again we couldn’t be more grateful to still have my sister here and with us still. I’m so grateful to be here staying with her in the hospital right now... I wouldn’t be anywhere else. Thank you all for your prayers. I truly believe it aided in getting her out of that operating room alive. She has a long road to recovery. Physically and emotionally...
    here are the soap cuts. I had a few friends stopping by to check on me before I headed out and they were on my table and well of course they were winos or know one and fell in love with them so they are already a hit. They are cute. And smell great too. Gotta love B.B. and the cork can be easily popped out when the soap wants to be used if pulled against the angle it’s sitting at. So it’ll be fine in that aspect. Or cute for decoration as I know so many just want it as decoration .

    Thankyou for the update. I had a friend that went through the same problems many many years ago, but no where as severe as your sis. Prayers certainly do help.

    The color turned out really pretty and a perfect wine soap color. th (8).jpg

    The soap turned out a lovely dark colour, pretty with the glitter as well.

    My sister carried twins for 6 months before she lost them. "Soul crushing" is a good description. I was several states away when it happened too. I cried at first and teared up for days after it happened and feel the sadness in my throat even now. It's something I don't think you ever get over.
    Good for you for trusting us enough to be able to just tell it like it is. I'm glad you did and I hope you're glad as well. <BIG hug>
    Good for you. Literally. Been there; done that. Soap making is a wonderful escape from the real world -- and who doesn't need that from time to time?
    Those soaps are the best wine soaps I've ever seen! Real corkers! Well done!
