Packaging and Pictures

The new boxes for the soaps should be in by the end of the week. I've got to remember to charge the digital cameras so I can show off the pretties!

I'm not sure if the batch of Vanilla Bean bars have fully darkened, but I think they have. I'm may have been a bit over enthusiastic about doing my first swirl and over blended by quite a bit, so I have dark brown streaks from the few areas that didn't get hit with the mica, a tan/fawn where the scented portion blended with the mica tinted/unscented soap, and an ivory pearl streak from the unscented portion. It's absolutely lovely...but I don't know if I'm going to be able to recreate it without the almost-headed-off-disasters that lead too it.

Pictures coming soon.

Can't wait to see pictures of your work.

But isn't that the joy of "homemade artisan" soaps? The serendipity of a lovely accident... *smile*

Michelle: I found the base for the camera. Now I just have to find an extension cord that will reach from an outlet to the computer. My surge protector is completely filled up!

Silver: Yeah, but when you want to recreate that accident, or the effects of it anyway...Of course, some accidents should never be repeats, such as my much bemoaned batch of shaving soap.
