Flickr Group Pool For The Soap Bar

It occurred to me that we, as a group of soap makers, have mounds of incredible experience and talent. I feel that as the writer of this blog, it is my job to bring you soap porn and to introduce you to new soap makers and designs, concepts, etc.

I was over at Flickr, a website which is like a public "bank" of photography, and I was browsing bath and body products for research purposes. While I was browsing, it hit me like a ton of bricks that I should start my own group (duh!) and have all of you post photos of your work, or work in progress, up in the Flickr pool and we can all become even MORE like a community. I've set it up so we can not only set up photos, but videos as well. Discussions are also enabled so if anyone wants to start one, can begin.

This is a whole new level of communication. It's not just me on a soapbox! It's us now. I am super excited about this... I am just shocked I didn't think of it sooner! My goodness!

Come join me:

Wonderful idea! It's always fun and inspiring to see what other talented soap artists have created. Let me humbly be the first one to add some photos to the group. :)

I just added some photos. The date stamp on my camera is funky - it says I took these pics in 2003, but they are actually only a couple weeks old.

Hugs,
