Valentine's Day soaps ~ now cut :)

Hello everyone!  I have some new pics to share with you of my Valentine's Day limited edition soaps.  I am thrilled with Hello Handsome ~ my first successful hanger swirl and he smells gorgeous too...

Love Dust is softly pretty and the colours make me smile!

Soft Kisses smells so warm and inviting...mmmm...

I have three more to share once I take some pictures today.  They have been made in my divider slab mould and need trimming to be ready for their closeups ;)

Here is a quick pic of Sultry Rose in the mould...

Have an awesome Day! xx

2012 Is off to a Busy Start!

Okay, we have just finished Christmas and New Year (did you have good ones?) and, wait..... oh my goodness..... Valentine's Day is coming!  Really, that soon?  How does that happen? ;)

As I sold quite a lot of my soaps in the run up to Christmas I have lots of re-makes to do.  However, Valentine's Day is taking precedence in my soap kitchen creation area.  I have some limited edition soaps just made and not yet cut.  Would you like to see some 'quick and dirty' pics?

On the left is Love Dust ~ using an interpretation of Fairy Dust fragrance. This one set up fairly quickly so I didn't get the pretty, wispy swirls I envisioned.
On the right is Hello Handsome (corny, yes I know) ~ using an interpretation of Very Sexy for Him fragrance. They are both still gelling here.

Here is Love Dust just out of the mould. I still love how it turned out ... air pockets and all!


Hello Handsome and my other new Valentine's Day soap ~ Soft Kisses ~ sitting on my curing rack waiting to be cut. These are my first 2 ever hanger swirls and I think they worked! I will know more when I actually get them cut. They are still a little soft for that.
Soft Kisses is an interpretation of Cashmere Mist fragrance and smells gorgeous!

I realised after posting these pics on my soaping forum that there is a spider web residing on the wall behind my soap racks - you can see it in the photos. LOL! I actually just looked and I can't even see it with the naked eye (even wearing glasses) yet I could feel a wisp of web when I brushed at it. You do know that Australia is full of spiders - all year round? Especially in summer.
I try hard not to think about it....

I will put up some photos of the cut soaps once I am able to.  I love cutting into a new soap design/colour/fragrance to see just what I have created with the magic of saponification!

Have an awesome day xxx
