The Upcoming New Year

Hi Everyone. It has been hectic the last few months with the new addition that has been added to our little family. We had a little boy on October 8, 2008. We now have two adorable sons. It has been wonderful but it has taken a little getting used to having a baby again. I am finally working out a schedule and starting to get things done again.

I have just added Pomegranate Black Currant to my soap line. It smells wonderful. I also added Gingersnap Pumpkin (also wonderful). I will be adding quite a few new scents to my soap line in the upcoming weeks such as Almond, Ginger Orange, Red Apple, and Winter Grapefruit.

Pomegranate Black Currant: This fragrance is based on a delicious juice that is found at many health food stores. This blend has tart Pomegranate notes, enlivened by citrus zest and intertwined with juicy Black Currant notes with just some light hints of soft florals and leafy greens to give the fragrance depth. It is a surprisingly sweet blend, almost as if the Pomegranates and Black Currants were sugared prior to blending.

Pumpkin Gingersnap: My Gingersnap Pumpkin soap will surround you in the comforting autumn scents of cinnamon, clove, cardamom and nutmeg wound around a delicious bottom of sweet vanilla and honey and brown sugar with an extra spark of Caraway Seed, to warm up and complement the spices.

Stay tuned for upcoming soaps....

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe New Year!!!

Fall is officially here!!! Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I love how the leaves change colors and the air grows crisp. On top of the fact that I love all of the fall scents.

I started making my fall soaps in August and have had a hard time keeping them on the shelf. Which makes me even more excited.

Pumpkin Spice: Like a visit to grandma's house at Thanksgiving, this Pumpkin Spice soap will surround you in the comforting autumn scents of cinnamon, clove, cardamom and nutmeg wound around a delicious bottom of sweet vanilla and honey and brown sugar.

Pumpkin Souffle: The delightful aroma of pumpkin mixed with creamy vanilla custard pudding and drenched with a creamy buttery caramel sauce, with a hint of cinnamon and spices!

Apple Jack and Peel: This smells just like the yummiest apple you have ever had the privilege of eating and then some. It has hot and spicy top notes of cinnamon and cloves rounding down to the mellow scent of red apples. Men love this one! It is especially popular during the fall and winter months when all anyone wants to do is cuddle up in front of the fire!

I will also be adding a few others in the coming weeks that I am sooooo excited about. They look as delicious as they smell and I can't wait to share them.

Coming Soon....

Cranberry Fig: An excellent compromise between the tart bite of Cranberries and the sweet, mild allure of Fig. Cranberries and Figs are made even more striking by adding a smattering of Blood Orange and Pink Grapefruit notes to the mix. (One of my new favs)

Almond Biscotti: This fragrance is positively edible! It is an amazing compilation of all things good, edible and coffee time! With a mixture of toasted almonds, sweet cake flour and drizzled chocolate, this fragrance will have you drooling and wanting to eat pastries! (Also one of my new favs)

Can you tell I am completely soap obsessed?

Finally Coming Together

My new shop is finally starting to come together. I have been working on it all week. It is still not exactly were I would like it to be but I am thrilled that it has come so far. I posted some new soap listings and will have more to post next week. I am going to be adding Cocoa Mango soap and Oatmeal Milk and Honey soap in the next few days. I love the way they turned out. Here is a picture of the Cocoa Mango soap. The bottom half is a dark chocolate color and the top half is a swirl of chocolate and mango. It smells so delicious...

I have recently embarked on separating my Etsy shop into two shops. I thought it would be just as easy to have two shops as it would one. Boy was I mistaken. Maybe it is because I am 25 weeks pregnant and have Gestational Diabetes. Who knows... But it has been harder than I thought it would be. I have been trying to re-do some of my soaps photos for the new shop. Nothing is coming out the way I would like it to. I know I can be a little picky at times. I think once I get all of my initial soaps moved over to the new shop it will not be so difficult. Okay, that's enough whining from me.

I have made quite a few batches of soap in the last week. I really like the way the swirl came out of my Love Spell soap.

Satsuma CP Soap

Finally my new Satsuma soap is off the drying racks. I tried a different look to the soap this time around. And I must say I am really pleased with the outcome. The bottom layer is a peach color with a cream colored swirl. The top layer is a cream color with chunks of the peach soap. I sent out the new bars today to customers. I can't wait to get some feedback on the new look. Tomorrow I will be re-batching my Love Spell soaps. I can't wait to get started...
