Let me show off a few scrumptious shots, some new, some older!
We had the most wonderful husband order a custom soap for his blushing bride over the Christmas season. We just have to share now that the gift has been given. It is such a thrill to concoct a custom soap for somebody special!
Full of oodles of Godiva chocolate and scented with chocolate and mint. It has all the punch of a decadent ganache without the caloric content! What a sweet gift!
And why not have a great shot of all those soap balls needed for our ever-so-popular ‘The Monkey Farts‘. The Crafter had been rolling these for while when she realized the balls were organizing themselves into a pattern, and she couldn’t resist getting off a few photos.
Soap balls just make me smile.
Here is another gratuitous shot: ‘Where the Northern Folk Rock‘ just made and in-the-mould. Non-assuming on initial inspection, maybe. But an insane amount of rice-bran oil and calendula and a mouth-watering infusion of patchouli and oakmoss make for such a rich yummy lather. It’s a bar we just keep coming back to: earthy and warm.
They’ll be coming off the curing racks in another 3 weeks
On an entirely different note, the Crafter forgot to share her latest build. She finally got busy in December constructing her six year old’s loft bed (she’d been promising him one for eight months). The lumber had been cut for a few months, but 3 concerted days of effort ensured it was finally assembled, sanded and painted. That was one happy kid! Again, the plans came from Ana White’s amazing website. Trust me, if we can do this, so can you:
Loft beds just make a small room seem… roomier!
