I am absolutely loving my new-ish 9-bar slab mold from Bramble Berry. I made my third batch in it today with one of my favorite fragrances, and finally got a swirl I am happy with. My first batch was too thick of trace, and my second a bit muddied. I really wish I would have gone for a bigger size of this mold now, I love it so much! I also bought the guest-size bar dividers, which make 18 smaller bars, but haven't used those yet.
Even though I haven't been very active on my blog or Facebook page lately, I have actually still been making soaps. I've been toying with the idea of selling when farmer's market season rolls around, but I am still undecided. In the meantime, I am working on requests for more of the soaps I handed out at Christmas (people really loved the Sugar Plum Fairy and Spicey Apples & Peaches, and also a few soaps made especially with a friend's birthday in mind. I hope to find the time to get some photos taken soon so I can share them with you all.
Thanks for sticking around!
