The cancellation of our camping trip didn't upset me all that much, since now I have 4 whole days for soaping!
I've recently discovered Amy Warden's blog. Amy, where have you been all my life?! She is an inspiration to all us soapers. I especially like her Weekly Soap Challenges. And since I'm late to the game (I think they're on Week 9) I'm starting from square one. I've already tried a lot of the techniques and bars that she presents in the challenge but I'm going to do them all, from week 1. (I especially excited for doing a batch with some coconut milk I've been holding on to for a while). I'll be updating you all on my progress through her soap challenges. I'm pretty pumped!
So if you've been reading my blog, you'll notice that it's been neglected for a while. I promise to be more active in my blogging. I spend so much time reading other soapy blogs that I figured I might as well contribute as well.
If you read my blog from a couple days ago you'll know that I did my first hanger swirl. I was pretty happy with how it turned out, not totally ecstatic or anything, but happy none the less. Perhaps it's the colours I chose, but I was using Blood Orange scent, so red and orange seemed like a given. I cut the bars last night when I got home from work (it is the WORST having to wait a whole 24 hours to cut, you other soapers know what I mean). Here's the finished bar.
