mystery soaper...

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 we had so much fun! 

I hate to tease you with just 2 images, but the soaper will show the rest.
Happy soaping!

Saturday Soaping ... Our Way

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 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: I still can't believe that bowl is made out of wax.
