Happy New Year!

I woke up feeling so awesome and I knew that I wanted to get into the soap kitchen. I also know it was good thinking that I didn't soap yesterday as I wasn't feeling so great and I do believe that it comes through in the soap. Soaping always goes better when I'm feeling good.

So I kicked off the soaping new year by making Cantaloupe & Lily and a fresh and clean scented soap too. I haven't figured out a name for it yet. It's a blend I made and it is a clean laundry type. Very nice!


I wanted to go into a more natural direction but when my last several soaps turned out not so fabulous, I needed a fun and sweet smelling soap.
