Okay, and here are the last of the winter soaps:
Apple Peach & Cinnamon: Went with a polka dot theme (sort of).
Fresh Snow: Always an extremely popular one.
Holiday Berry: My personal favorite.
Frankincense & Myrrh: The colors turned out even better than last year. Really love the stars and contrasting blues and grays.
It’s a good thing I like making soap because that is all I’ve done in the past two months. I’ve had maybe 4 or 5 days in the past two months where I HAVE NOT made soap and those days were typically because I was either at a ll day market (though even then I’d usually come home and make a batch) or had family or teaching responsibilities that kept me away from home the entire day.
I have a dry rack at my parents (for over flow) and it’s currently full! Here are my two dry racks!
(The one row on the bottom that is empty is actually full :D I just have to cut the soap first then it’ll go in that spot.)
In the past two months I’ve made 1,641 bar soaps/cupcake soaps. This doesn’t include any of the other product I’ve made (bath and body products, popsicles, dryer balls…and I’ve made a ton of those too!) Yes, I’ve been busy. It’s crazy how much things have grown. I’m super excited about it, but it’s also got me thinking about production and how to meet the demand I currently have in the most efficient way possible.
And now I’m off to start on the winter soaps ha! Oh it never ends. :D
Continuation from yesterday! I did two other soaps for West Point. One was a take on my (what’s turned out to be really popular) Embedded Heart Soaps. The other was a simple and clean soap with a mica top that I then stamped “Army Themed” stamps into. I have to say I love these, especially the “Go Army, Beat Navy!”
Embedded Heart West Point Themed Soap:
Stamped West Point Themed Soaps: So these didn’t work out. The fragrance I used (coconut shavings) darkened this soap way too much. I ended up stamping them with my logo, but the rubber stamps dipped in mica just weren’t looking good on this one.
I had to restock my Cedar & Saffron. I’ve done the same technique/colors with this soap for a while. This time I changed up a color though and man when I cut it it made me think Army Camouflage :D
And there you have it, my Army themed soaps. I really like them. I’m hoping West Point does too. Because this Army Brat would be tickled pink to have her soaps featured in their gift shop!
