Fastest yet!

I love challenging myself, so this morning I timed myself making 200 soaps, start to finish including clean up, and cutting the previous days 150 soaps. 1 hour and 28 minutes from the time I set foot in the shed, till when I walked back into the house! O.O

There is nothing I tell you, NOTHING, like having a baby, and from the time they are 6 weeks old, trying to run your full time soap business around them to teach you super time managment skills lol :)

What do you do to keep on the ball? And not just with soap!

Cause we like soap seas :)

I just love looking at trays of uncut soap logs. Something so fresh and bountiful about it - ahhhh!

Busy busy busy!

Just under 1/3 of my latest large order done. I tell ya's, working around a 1 year old is my biggest challenge YET!!

Oops - Been MIA again haven't I :)

Being a new mum, and running a business has certainly had it's fair share of challenges - but I'm loving it!!!

My little girl is only weeks away from her First Birthday next month, aaaahhhhh!!!!!

In the soap work, I have a new one for the blokes coming out, with woodsy notes of Cedarwood - curing on the racks now, and smells soooooooooooo good!

Yep, I caved under the pressure :)

Over the past few years the requests for cupcake soaps have increased till this year and the begging began lol. So, I caved...

Gotta give our customers what they want after all!

On top we have Flirt and Tempt, then on the bottom we have Cherish (orange) Ritual (brown) and Delish (purple). I've been playing around with different tips and moulds, so will be sticking with the standard 'ripple' base, and using a mix of 3 different tips I think, I love the different effects you can create!

That time of year again! Christmas Soap!

Just like opening a pressie! I love taking the lid off my moulds the next morning, and seeing a sea of wavy soap tops :) Here they are - Candy Cane, scented with my unique blend of Raspberry fragrance and Peppermint essential oil...
