Merry & Bright

Ok, here it is! Merry & Bright all cut up and sitting pretty! I'm done with my holiday soaps! :) I am looking forward to using them and giving them as gifts here soon.

A little side note: I have no plans to be making any soap for a while as I need supplies and also will be quite busy the next few weeks with birthdays and Thanksgiving. i just wanted you to know that the posts here will be few and far between. Happy Thanksgiving!

Final Holiday Soap

Here's a peek at my final holiday soap - Merry & Bright. It has a beautiful scent blend of fir, pine, orange, and pineapple. It reminds me of two of my favorite pine candles from Yankee. It's very pine-y and just altogether festive. Though it's hard to see from the pictures, the base of the soap is blue with a while swirl. Inside is a layer of multi-colored soap gems and then the top (as you can plainly see!), has glittered soap gems. I'll try to cut this one later today!

Holly Jolly & Reindeer

I LOVE LOVE LOVE how Holly Jolly turned out! It looks exactly like I wanted it too. The fragrance too...oh my...perfect for this soap! :)

So when I unmolded my reindeer yesterday, I realized I had a Rudolph! Then it took until 9pm to realize that I had nine reindeer and one was Rudolph. Oh geez...sometimes I'm not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree! HA!

Holly Jolly Soap

Another one down! This is my Holly Jolly soap. It's scented with a fresh holiday greenery scent and it's quite beautiful. There are red and green swirls inside and I sprinkled the top with these fun holly sprinkles I found. Fun stuff!

This soap is for my last holiday soap. It will have a glittered ball ornament theme. I will make soap balls out of these colors.

Two More Holiday Soaps

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before, but my goal is to get all my holiday soaps made by the middle of next week. I want them all to be ready to give away by December 15th at least. So no dilly-daddling around here. This afternoon I knocked two of them off the list. I now have four done and two more to go.

This one is Winter's Walk - a fresh scent reminiscent of a chilly walk in the mountains following a fresh snowfall, when the sun is out and the snow is glistening on the pines. The fragrance notes I most notice are pine, eucalyptus, and mint. There are white 'snowballs' embedded throughout the soap. Lovely!

For the kiddies I made Reindeer Soap - it's an all natural soap with no added fragrance or color and embedded with the cutest reindeer rubber duckies! It does have the scent of pure cocoa butter which it gets naturally from yummy amounts I added to this soap. It should be extremely gentle for the kiddies.
