Popping In From Vacation

Hi all! I thought I would pop in from some vacation time to do a little blog update.

I've been enjoying playing around making scented wax melts. They are for use in wax melters and wax warmers for home fragrance.

I am in love with this one. It's Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Pie. I was getting so hungry when making this one. My husband said "If only it were real" with a sigh. :-)

The next two are the same though different shapes. The colored chunks are scented in Fruit Loops with white Cotton Candy over pour.'s nothing short of amazing! :-)

This fun purple one has Cotton Candy chunks with a Black Raspberry Vanilla over pour and wax black raspberry embeds.

Towards the end of last week I made two new soaps and a remake.

This soap is Apple Mango Tango and is scented in a blend comparable Gain's fabric softener of the same name. Funny thing is, I picked the colors and made the soap before I ever saw the packaging for the fabric softener. I chose the same colors! HA! I did not realize how popular this scent is!

You know it had to happen. I was going to make a Cotton Candy scented soap eventually! I scented the base in Cotton Candy and you can see from the edges that the base is going to darken. The pink and blue topping is unscented and I just love how the colors turned out.

These tops make me happy!

These are some of the soaps that I still need to bevel. I am so far behind on doing that job that some are listing this Sunday! I'll have plenty of work to do when I am back from vacation.

Thank you for the orders while I am on vacation. I will work steadily to get them sent out beginning on Monday. I will be listing Champagne Summer and Smooches Sunday afternoon. I always try to open the store and post new listings between 12pm and 1pm central time in the good ol' USA.

Have a happy weekend!

I love the way you combine colors, and your swirls and patterns are beautiful! I have never used cotton candy myself. What are your favorite combinations for it?

Thanks so much! I just love cotton candy so much! I'm still experimenting with combos but I love it with black raspberry vanilla and love to jazz up the cotton candy note in pink sugar too.
