The camera is not cooperating...

Soaps need to be wrapped up for the office party stocking stuffers. Party is tomorrow.

Sooo, this is what I'm going to have to work with for the post.


I love the look of the one on the bottom right. I just dusted the mold with the mica and did the pour.


Remember the angels I did here? After about two weeks, the background morphed.

I contacted Bramble Berry for help and was told "It sounds like there is some Vanilla in the winter grapefruit - which is causing the discoloration. That's one of the adventurous parts of using one of our Limited Edition fragrances - since we haven't tested them yet interesting things like discoloration can happen!"

I honestly have no problem with that. On items where color is critical, I'll stick with the tried, true, and tested FO's. In this case, the luscious scent more than makes up for the morph! This is one I really REALLY hope they move to their regular line. *nudges Anne-Marie*

Between the camera and the shrinkwrap, you can't tell in the picture but there is just a faint hint of that sapphire blue on the surface layer. It is a lovely opalescent shimmer.

I love the new snowflakes - they look great!

I'm sorry that the Winter Grapefruit discolored; I don't remember anyone else mentioning it yet but it does sound like a Vanilla issue.

I hope I have enough of the Winter Grapefruit left to do a batch of CP. Even if it discolors. :-)

I was a bit surprised that it wiped out the blue almost entirely..until I remembered that there was a lot more FO in there than there was mica.
