MIA and Happy Soaps

I just want to apologize for being M.I.A. on this blog. With reinventing my business, and trying to make enough soap to never run out of stock raising a new puppy, doing taxes/financial stuff and struggling with my body over the last week, I am pooped to say the least.

I've been basically asleep for 2 whole days.  I have been having wickedly detailed and horrific nightmares, also.  My body has full body aches, head and neck pain and severe exhaustion, like someone took a needle and extracted my energy for 48 hours.

Julia, of Cocobong, sent me a list of questions about my business so she can include a little Q & A in her upcoming review of my soap (I am SO nail biting), and I don't even have the energy to answer those questions properly.  I will provide a touch of soap porn, as I really have nothing more to share with you right now.

I do have some things on the horizon to share:  I HAVE to show you some of my own soap porn.  For instance, Palm Beach Illustrated soap is the most beautiful of all three batches I've made. I haven't photographed this batch yet. The colors are blue and green and splendid!  Also, I wanted to share our new plain design of our Lemon Scone Goat Milk Soap.  It used to have a white dollop on top, but we decided to go basic on this one because the acceleration was tricky towards the end and I want a consistent looking bar for every batch.  It's not as "pretty", but I like it even more because it has unified basic-ness (I know....not a word).  That's all I'll say for now.

Ok, ON TO THE PORN!  Today, I'd like to share some orange and pink soaps that I have dug up for you.  For some reason, I've never made a soap with these color combos, and yet, I absolutely love the combination of pink and orange.  Go figure.  It is on my "to do" list now.  Perhaps a Spring soap is due... The following soap photos have blown me out of my depressed sickly mode and into just feeling sickly mode.... ;)  Get your seat belts on.



I just love the pink, orange, purple combo!  Gorgeous!!





"Sari" by Soap and Restless
Unreal and gorgeous beyond my words....

****
Thank you for coming back every time you do. I am totally committed to making this the best blog for soap freaks like me (and possibly you).  ;)

You may now go on to your regularly scheduled activities...  Have a great and sunshiney day!
