I have been struggling with getting my butt into the kitchen again to make some soap. I think it's been over a month, so to get myself pumped up again, I asked Trish, of Suds To Love to ask her hubby if he would make me two soap molds and I'd pay him for his time and work. He hand makes them for Trisha and I was hoping he would take me up on it.
Ok, so I ordered two, please make them whatever size I say, so this week, I get a fat box from Trisha. Yes! My molds. I opened them up and look what I got. Above is the 4 lb soap mold and the one below with the orange soap poured into it, is the 2 lb. soap mold. Obviously, I couldn't even wait to photograph them both before I soaped due to my incredible excitement. Trisha also sent me 4 soaps of hers (which all smell so good!). I urge Trisha to open up an Etsy shop. She is a soap making addict and she will run out of room at her home if she doesn't start selling those soaps soon!
The sugary brown soap below is the soap I just made and put into the 4 lb. mold. I will reveal the fragrance when it is time, because it might be part of something sugary from Product Body for the holidays.
My husband asked me to make him a loaf of orange scented soap so here it is. It looks like custard to me. I sprinkled orange peel powder on the top.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend!!
