It's That Time Again!

It's time to make the soaps for the holiday season! It seems early for the rest of the world, but for soap makers, this is the time to get our jingle bells on and get to work! And again, by the time the rest of the world is thinking about the holidays, we're thinking of pink, red, hearts, and love. :-)

Merry & Bright 2012 - The perfect holiday scent in my opinion! A festive blend of fir notes balanced by nuances of orange peel, garlands of cranberry, dried lemon slices, golden spun sugar, and a touch of vanilla. A natural colored base with swirls of deep violet, bright blue, and rich gold.

Montana Memories - a scent blend of fir, orange, and pine and colored with green and white swirls. This scent always reminds me of my childhood in Montana and waking up to the beauty of the sparkling snow resting on the pine trees.

I didn't make any videos for these soaps. It has been very difficult processing and uploading my videos recently. My husband convinced me to enjoy some relaxing soap making; jamming out to my favorite music. It was refreshing and fun! I will do a video of my next soap coming up which will be Holly Jolly 2012!

Love the little white embeds and I can smell the Montana memory all the way over here in Illinois (I used to live in the Black Hills)

Thank you! I'm so excited to cut into these. I miss the mountains so much. We didn't even have snow in Missouri last winter.
