I recently showed another soaper :) how to swirl. We made a few batches of soap (aprx 10 pounds) in a few hours.
Here are few pics from our soap session.
I wonder what ms minnie thinks about these. We may need her to do a candle post. I had a blast, and can't wait to post again. I have a few topics that I will blog about soon so stay tuned.
Oh, check out the pumpkin and lavender hot process soaps that Amanda, Ms Minnie, and I made http://www.lovinsoap.com/ we had so much fun!
I hate to tease you with just 2 images, but the soaper will show the rest.

Holiday season is here.
I am so excited and almost ready to launch. I am working on getting soap molds for my soap production. It makes it easier to be able to make multiple batches in 1-2 days. I have 3 holiday scents for the soap line that I will post later this month.
I got a chance to do a hot process soap tutorial with Amanda from Lovin' Soap and Ms. Minne with Cama Scents 'N' Such yesterday. We made 3 different batches of hot process soap. Amanda will post the tutorials as well, but here is a link to check out some of the soap.
It was awesome because I went to Amanda's soap making class in September of 2009, and Minnie was her first student. We had a great time, and combined have so many ideas. I have to blog to share these with you. If you are in Texas and want to learn how to make soap check out Amanda's soap class http://www.dfwsoaplab.com/. Maybe Ms. Minnie can teach us how to make candles :) ( Now that I think about it...I think I will stick to making wax tarts - my #1 love is soap - sorry Ms. Minnie)...
My favorite soap to make was the pumpkin soap which is made with pureed pumpkin. It is so wonderful and produces a nice creamy, yet bubbly lather.. I will have photos soon. I had a great time, and can't wait for you all to see the end results.
Check out Ms. Minnie's blog: http://www.camascents.blogspot.com/ I still can't believe that bowl is made out of wax.
