The Crab Challenge - Soap Inspiration

What a crazy month it has been!  I recently moved my home (just a few miles away) and had a Crohn's flare-up....both no fun at all.  I was MIA for quite a bit dealing with it all, but I am feeling fantastic now and slowly getting back into a routine.

Before I went missing, though, we had a soaping challenge on the Facebook Soaper's Retreat group.  I shared a photo from Bing of a gorgeous crab and asked everyone to capture the beauty in a batch of their own soaps. 

Here is Crabby, Mr. Inspiration:

We had some amazing results and I am so proud of everyone who attempted this challenge. Here are some of my favorites...

Charlene Simon of Bathhouse Soaps


Sarah Withnell


Amy Warden of Great Cakes

Tanya Rasley of Baby Duck Soaps

Michelle Rhoades of Mossy Creek

Mary Ann Forehand

Shelly Cleveland Morris

Tanya Chappell

New challenge coming soon!  So get over to the retreat and think outside the box!  ;)

It's easy to see why these were your favorites. Some were absolutely stunning in approach, technique, colour, and their overall style shines through! These challenges are always fun for everyone.
