I know it's been a while since anyone in the soaping world has heard from me, and I was honored that a few soapy ladies even checked in on me in my absence. Truth is, I've been just fine. :)
After my last soaping day, the very day we filmed those amateur videos, and also the same day I finished up the last of my Christmas soaping, I decided to take a little break from soap making until after the holidays. My curing shelves were full, my supplies were low, and my soaping environment just wasn't ideal. I did still have plans for blog posts during my hiatus, but they never came to pass. I ended up being so busy working extra shifts at my real job, and then moving (yay, new soaping environment!), and then holidays, that I barely even had time to think about sitting down to write a blog post or even comment on my favorite blogs that I was still following throughout my little break.
The good news is, the holidays are over, I've lost interest in extra shifts, and my honey and I are finally settled down into our new place. And I'm ready for some soap making fun again! (I could really use the stress relief, let me tell ya!!)
I am dreadfully low on oils and lye right now---a problem I plan to remedy tomorrow! So hopefully you'll see some brand new, freshly inspired soaps popping up on this blog or Facebook page very soon. In the meantime, take a look at.....
........my new soap supplies closet:
.....the beautiful colors in the fibers I got for soap felting:
|(felting ugly soaps is my new favorite thing to do)|
......and our new home :)
Also, here's another really poor quality video of me getting frustrated with my soap design. Specifically the color purple. And I don't mean the movie with Whoopi and Oprah, y'all.
....And a picture of how it all turned out really great in the end. :)
Thanks for not unsubscribing to me. I've missed you guys!
