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.
