Blue man soap swirl

Here it is (LOL) I tried to update my blog on the ipad but it wouldnt let me add pics to it, and then I accidently posted it.

I loved the smell of this fragrance in the bottle, but not to sure about it in the soap, its very strong, hopefully the smell will fade after a while. I am loving the colours, not a perfect swirl but it was fun trying to do it.

Rainbow Magic

I love how you can transform soap that you are not totally happy with into a funky looking soap. My daughter has named this soap "Rainbow Magic", there is about 6 different soaps in this, I have then added a strawberry fragrance so it's smells yummy, the kids will love the bright colours in this one

I had forgotton my password

Can you believe I forgot my password to get on to my blog and write a post, how silly of me.
I have been soaping madly to catch up on soaps before the school holidays start, and below is two of them which I am happy with the end result.

This is one of the yummiest fragrances, I had to work fast with this one as the fragrance made my mix thicken up so quickly.

When I made this Rice Flower and Shea soap I didnt like the look of the colour but now that it is cut I am really loving the look of it and want to try to replicate the same soap.

I NEED to make soap

School Holidays end this week, I have had fun with the kids and enjoyed the sleep ins but I really need to make soap to build up my stock levels they are very low.
Here is a couple of newies I made before the holidays.

Cranberry Pomegranate - Smells so yummmmmmy

This is my first rebatch with odds and ends and I love how rustic it turned out, I put the fragrance Honey Washed kids in it and its also another yummmmy soap. :)

And this is just a revamped Rustic Rose soap.

Lavender Swirl Soap & Rose Soap

So the soaps have been in front of a fan now for 10 hours and I had to cut it, I think I am a happy little vegiemite, will see how they look after a week or so, I just hope now they dont get that white frosty look on top. I love the colours and they smell beautiful.

Rose Soap & Lavender Soap Pictures

White Tea & Ginger Soap

I couldnt resist last night after my soap had sat covered for about 9hours and didnt notice any gelling, I decided to get it out of the mold and cut it. I think I am glad there is only very slight veins you wont notice by the pic, but I think if I had left it, it may have gotten worse.

White Tea & Ginger Soap

Tonight I have managed to make two soaps Lavender Swirl and a Rose soap with Australian red clay. I have done what Holly from sparklebrook did and put a fan on my bench not sure how long I will leave it on for.

Here are some pics.

OK Getting Frustrated

I have only managed to make two soaps on the school holidays, and cant say I was that happy with them, my Rhubarb Al Fresco thickened up so quickly and I have lots of horrible veins in it and my Oatmeal & Grapefruit Essential oil one has now got white frost on top, I know it is still fine to use both of these soaps but gee it is sooooo frustrating when a soap doesnt turn out.

I managed to get time to make a soap today had my two year old at family day care and my other two kids I took them to the park in the morning and then got home told them to watch cartoons and they didnt come in to my soap office (garage) once, I must of worn them both out. So anyway I made White Tea & Ginger soap tonight its covered up I bet it will have cracks in the morning mmmmmmm only time will tell.

I was reading on Sparklebrook blog (Holly) and she mentioned in a post she doesnt gell her soap and she soaps at room temperature, I used to do this a while back and I can remember why I stopped anyway if this batch I did today is terrible I think I will try what Holly does again.

Here are some pics of soap.

Thanks for reading.
