Some Soaps

I have more soap to share today. Behold Moroccan Mint. I've made 3 batches of this in 6 months because it is so delightful. I like to make it without color. I'm not sure why. A friend told me it looked like butter.


And what did I discover in the guest bathroom of my new-to-us home? A plant growing out of the sink. Awesome. I'm sure that's not going to be a problem. Not. But it was pretty cute.

Sorry about the blog time lag. Good stuff has been going on that's kept me busy. :)

Turkish Mocha

Last week I had a super soapy day. I was dealing with some work stress, which I sublimated into soap making. Sounds like a healthy outlet :) I made 5 batches of soap, many of which I split into smaller batches so I could test the Fall Fragrance Sampler I got from Bramble Berry. Some of the batches are still waiting to be cut, but here is one the soaps that turned out great.



The swirl pattern is just lovely, isn't it? This fragrance smells great, almost buttery, which is high praise from the wife of a Wisconsonite. I'll have more to show you this week, and some cards :)
