This post is for the "Great Cakes Soap Challenge" . It has been a very interesting week for me. I am limited on soap making supplies, so bear with me with my homemade log mold and dividers...I'm slowly adding to my collection to make life easier....Like my dad use to say, "Use the right tool for the right job!" But for now, this will have to do. The Challenge was to make soap using the Circling Taiwan Swirl technique. I think I lucked out on this first attempt because I tried to make this a couple more times with no success. Learning to add fragrance and color to your soap mixtures can be very tricky. No harm through...Looks like we won't need to buy soap for a long time..LOL I think after a few of these challenges and I will have Birthday and Christmas presents made for the next couple of years..LOL But seriously, It has been fun learning this new skill and it makes me realize just how many different possibilities there are to this craft. Hope I did it right :)
Just wanted to let any visitors know that I am just now returning to my blog after being away for awhile. Please note that some of the links may not work. I will review and fix up my blog as time allows. I use to run the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenges. I will update my blog soon. I may need to think of a new header message..LOL ;) Any ideas? ((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))
Well hello everyone.....boy I have been away for a long time and so much has changed in my world. How are
all of you and what is new? I hope everyone is well and happy. I have decided to
return to my blog because I received some handmade soap as a Christmas
Gift this year and was bit by the crafting bug again. I still love all
my paper crafting, digi images and card making, however I am excited to
learn all the wonderful techniques in soap making. I can only imagine the matching card/soap gifts sets I will be making in the future. Since this is new to
me, I am counting on some of my past blogging friends to share some
links to some great challenges, contests, clubs, swaps, networking forums/sights
etc etc etc that have to do with Soap making! I have missed my
blogging friends and am so happy to be back :) Please feel free to leave
me a message with an update on what "you" have been up to, some goals
you may have for the new year and/or to just say "HI":) P.S. I want to leave you with a picture of my VERY first attempts at soap making. Don't laugh too hard ok peeps :) LOL
