Soap and More

I made soap yesterday 3 loafs and 1 with Alaura, she wanted to learn how.  It was a long day.  I also so got my bakers rack now I can't wait to fill it and start selling.
Here is yesterday's work

Starting in the front is Sweet Oranges and Chili Peppers it smells yummy.  Then you have Salted Margarita I should have added more scent but the smell is there.  You have Alaura's Avocado Spearmint.  I also made a Watermelon soap which was a total waste of time, I made the trace to thick so the soap setup to fast on me.  So today I remade it and I think it might have turned out OK will have to wait and see.

Here is my rack I want to put a board on top and use it as my cutting station.  I have to get some knitting done which seems to be hurting lately.  Bye

Not much has been happening in my life.  Been struggling with my knitting not really happy with my projects so they are moving very slow.  Have been making soap but nothing to show sorry.  I've been working in my craft room renamed it Bubbles and Ewe like it.
I have been trying to come up with a logo my sister and I came up with "MARKHAM'S BUBBLES" labeling is got me bogged down I've been working on packaging I didn't realize that there was so much to do just to sell but I have to have it perfect before I sell, I know it's just me.
Got to get ready for work. Bye.

Soap, Soap, and More Soap

I have had so much fun making soap the last few days.  Here is some of the soap that I made before cutting.
From left to right there is: A beer soap, I used Wonder Brewery's Porter. It has a wonder taste of coffee and chocolate so I scented it with those two scents, it smells good.  Loaf 2 is a natural colored soap, the end doesn't look all that good but smell wonderful.  I used lemongrass and lime two of my favorite smells.  Loaf 3 is my attempt of a campfire I think it turned out good.  The scent is fireside, I used the hanger method to make the flames.  Loaf 4 is an attempt to do a Galaxy Clyde Slide, you mix your colors pour them back into your bowl and then pour into your mold.  I scented it with Green Fig and Pomegranate & Black Currant it's still to soft to cut.
Here is the Campfire Soap cut. All soap will be cured in 6 weeks so if you would like a bar let me know.  Well got to get knitting.   Bye for now.
