After a long time being quiet :)

Oh wow it has been a while hasn't it!

Over the past few years I've been out of the blogging world because of my two newest creations - my son and daughter :)

I went back to University 2 in that time as well, to finally get my Bachelor degree - as a double major in Psychology and Sociology, because what else do you do while working and raising two kids? Lol!

Then I broke my arm last year in two places (OUCH) which was ever so clever of me (stocking soap ingredients in the lather lab no less) which meant I had to learn how to type one handed, and use my mouse left handed to complete assignments - but all better now!

As both my kidlets are now nearly in school, I've started getting a little bit of extra time back, and wanted to give you all a big "Hello!!!" How have you been? Does anyone still read blogs anymore, or is it all Instagram these days :P

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 management skills :)

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...

Latest Soapy!

Here's the soap I made to celebrate the birth of my daughter. I wanted a sweet soft floral scent, a little girly, so blended a gorgeous rose fragrance I recently got from the USA with sweet spearmint essential oil, and am very happy with the results!

I think I'll call it "Blush" - what do you all think? I'm starting to run out of new soap names haha! It was meant to have a black swirl, but it went more of a muted grey, which I actually think looks better! I also infused organic red tea into the base for some texture :)
