I love handmade EVERYTHING and cards are up there with the handmade soaps. Steph from over at PLAYING WITH SOAP sent me this card with her soaps for our soap swap. It is one of her first. Now, if this is one of her first I can only imagine what #2, #3, #4, etc... are going to look like. She is as talented a cardmaker as she is a soapmaker. Steph, if your out there, you should have seen my first card *hiding under desk right now. Your card is really great! I love it... THANK YOU! =) And welcome to the wonderful world of cardmaking.

A group of us over at the soap pixie forum decided to have our first soap swap. I received some FANTASTIC soaps from some very TALENTED soap makers. Please check out the sites of those soapmakers who participated to learn more about their soapmaking experiences and a little about themselves as well.

For those who don't know, I don't only LOVE making soap I also LOVE making cards. 3 months ago I joined the Divine Secret Sister Group over at SPLITCOAST STAMPERS. It was my first round. I play big sis to someone and someone else plays big sis to me. We don't know who our big sis is until the end of the round (3 months). Today I came home to find a reveal gift from my big sis. Her reveal gift was actually a

Denise over at The Indecisive Artist sent me a sample of her coffee soap and the FO she used and oh how yummy it smells. I had my hubby smell it as soon as I opened the bag and of course the first thing out of his mouth is "ooooooh, how come you don't make soap like that." I guess that means its time to try my hand at some coffee soap. LOL Thank you so much Denise for sharing your soap with me and for sending the FO sample. I think it will work great!!

I'm proud to announce that I'm officially a mud puddle girl. My friend Carrie~GiGi over at MUD PUDDLE GIRL BLOG presented me with this cute award!! Thank you Carrie!

Carrie is the owner of UNDER THE WILLOW GIFTS. She creates the most adorable billows (a pillow, with a little booklet plus handmade soap). Her soaps are absolutely wonderful. I know this for a fact because I was lucky to receive one. She also has her MUD PUDDLE GIRL line where she sells MUD PUDDLE GIRL shirts and lipbalm. I love the shirts so much I'm ordering some for my girls (photo to be shared after Christmas). She has several other gifts offered on her site as well so make sure you pop on over there to take a look!!

Today I cut the peppermint soap in the new soap cutter. My opinion: I LOVE IT!! Its really easy to use and fast. I'm really impressed. Originally, when I started making soap, I used whatever mold I could find. Drawer organizers, lined shoeboxes, whatever I could think of. I graduated to a beautiful brambleberry mold (one I still love and still use). I just thought I'd try this one out to see what it was like and my verdict

Well, I tried the new mold yesterday. Had a friend over who wanted to learn about soapmaking, so I let her do most the work. She did a great job!! We tried out the new mold. I wasn't as prepared as I should have been. I didn't think out how I was going to cover it until it was time to pour the soap into the mold. A little too late. I just grabbed plastic wrap and lopped it on top of the soap, hence, the little lines in the soap. I'm a perfectionist and those lines are driving me insane. Can't wait to get this out of the mold and wack off those lines. 😂 Thank goodness for soap cutters. 😂

I decided to order a different type of soap mold. I've been using the same one for quite a while now and just wanted a change. I decided to get the 4lb. soap mold from Creekside Soaps. I really like the looks of it. I can't wait to try it out! I also purchased the soap cutter.

I'm so happy to report that the logo for my soap business is finished. I really love it. The creator of my logo did a great job and I'm very happy with the finished product. The colors, the layout, the design, are exactly what I asked for. It was all done very quickly and it was very affordable. I couldn't be more pleased.
