In The Mold Tonight - True Love Soap

Hi all!

I have to give you all big thanks for the many orders you have placed since I opened yesterday morning. It's been a hoot! I have sold out of Snow Soap, Autumn Berry Soap, Apple Crumble Soap, and just a bit ago the Rainbow soap. I knew that one would be popular so I have ordered in more fragrance to make another and most likely bigger batch. Again, THANK YOU! You all are the best!

I've been working so hard at getting everything ready to go, stressing here and there, that today I was finally able to chill a bit and make soap! I enjoyed it so very much. Can I even tell you how much I love making soap? Probably not enough time tonight. :-) I'm sure the hubs is just happy that there has been a lull in the money being sucked out of the bank account. Hee!

Anyway, back to today's soap. I made a batch that I'm calling True Love. It seems fitting for the upcoming Valentines Day. Don't hate me, I must always stay a holiday ahead! I blended some fragrances together for this as I'm so apt to do. The lead on this fragrance is an Amber Romance dupe. The base is scented in this dupe. I knew it was going to darken on me but I still wanted to jazz this batch up with rich gold, pink, and purple. So what I did was make two batches. The bottom is the Amber Romance with no color added but I did top it with a gold mica line. From there I mixed up the top with a berry scent. Oh my goodness...what a blend! I did an ITP (In The Pot) swirl with the gold, pink, and purple. I dusted the top with gold mica and just a bit of gold glitter. I'm so excited about this batch. It couldn't have come together any better I don't think.




I'm going to work on editing the video this evening and hopefully it will upload overnight. In the meantime, don't forget that my store is open until Friday, November 16th, at midnight CST, and you can use the code BLOGNOV12 to get 10% off your order! YAY!
