I was SO glad that one of my sons was home when mine arrived yesterday!!!!!! 50# is a bit too heavy for me too!This discolor may turn out to work in your favor. Sorta looks like camouflage with the tan in the white. You could market it that way.
Me, Im dividing up my mega tallow cube into buckets. No one was home when it arrived and I cant lift 50 lbs with my back so I rolled it into the house.
Thanks hihihi.. But I couldn't do it this time. My hand has been killing me since before the flood, and got worse (I really should get this checked) so it's been hard to do many things. Sister said could be nerves. So I wrote out a whole sheet of labels on blank paper, had it scanned and printed onto kraft paper. Can't tell much difference I think lolDawni, I used to hand letter my soap labels, too. It was so time-intensive! And I'd get hand cramps on top of already existing discomfort from arthritis AND Dupeytren's. I had to switch to printed labels just to preserve my hands. But mine never looked as good as yours.
Me!!I’ll pm you a photo if you want.
So far so good. I researched my fragrance so no ricing or seizing, No cracks or volcanoes. I covered it and towel wrapped it last night. I think it gelled but being this is my first time, Im not sure yet. Ill have to wait till I cut itI feel the same way about HP! . I’m sure it turned out great!
I normally order the 50# buckets of coconut oil 76 but soapers choice was out so I decided to try the cube of c.o. 92. I soaped with it today, it's definitely harder to scoop out!The cube was a good shape though. I got tired of filling buckets and the box fit on the lower shelf of my work table.
I really like the galaxy soaps!Today I did my first attempt of this months unchallenge! I tried a drop swirl/in the pot swirl combo and am very curious about how it turns out!
Also my piping bag got in the mail a couple of days ago and I’ve been practicing since lol. My skills arent good enough to actually use yet, so i dropped all the left over batter in some small molds and make galaxy soaps. I think they actually look really good for soap scraps! The colors really suit each other, might use it in a big loaf soon..
Apparently they know a good thing when they come across it!Today I unmolded molds that held leftover batter. I had all these Pepperidge Farm Milano cookie containers and my soapy eyes saw another use for them. It's hard to see in the photo but I like the little recycling triangle symbol on the bottom! I usually use yogurt cups for leftovers but they require a lot of banging and smacking and these just popped right out (so probably wouldn't satisfy you, @Dawni ).

And people, something's happening! In the last 2 days, several acquaintances and friends -- in addition to my electrician -- are wanting to buy my soaps for holiday gifts and wanting my website, etc.! I've been just a hobbyist giving it away. Altho' I do find myself with an excess in stock....
Looking forward to seeing the cut!So far so good. I researched my fragrance so no ricing or seizing, No cracks or volcanoes. I covered it and towel wrapped it last night. I think it gelled but being this is my first time, Im not sure yet. Ill have to wait till I cut it
