This month has been one nonstop whirlwind of making and markets and research/writing…and the most awful case of poison ivy. Fun Fact: I’m EXTREMELY allergic to poison ivy. I never want to see the stuff again. Three weeks of absolute misery! Anyway! Here’s a peak at my month.
May 2, 2019: Bath Bombs
I’d put off making these until I was desperate. It was so bad it took me multiple days to make enough to just be restocked. I’ll need to make more batches by the end of the month.
May 3, 2019: Take too many…
Still trying to produce a self-produced lye soap. I can’t even at this point. I just want to BE DONE!
May 4, 2019: Tent Weights
Remember! Please adequately weight down your tent! You don’t want to damage your tent or your neighbors, or their property, or heaven forbid a person!
May 9, 2019: Strawberry Guava
Summer soaps are officially started. Only slightly behind this year.
May 11, 2019: Ocean Breeze
The ever popular Ocean Breeze is back! This is my first batch of three for this soap. And I also decided to revise my American Flag soap this year. It’s scented in Pineapple Sage–soooooo yummy!
May 14, 2019: Grapefruit Mint
This soap is so much work, but I love it. I love the color, the scent, the design, the embeds.
May 16, 2019:Raspberry Lemonade
Again, another soap that is so much work, but I love it and so I made it again this year. This scent is one of my favorites!
May 18, 2019: Before the Mix!
I love added all my colors and exfoliants to a soap batter before the mix. I especially love this combo of color and textures.
May 19, 2019: Sunflower Soap
This soap didn’t go as planned. It’s not bad, but not perfect. I forgot how time consuming pipping sunflowers is and how hard. The yellow got very brights/dark on me as it saponified. It’s all good. I love the soap even if it’s not perfect.
May 20, 2019: Misprints
*face palm* Yeah…I was paying attention while printing these. Oye!
May 21, 2019: Last of the Summer Soaps
Finally finished up the summer soaps. I love how the pastel colors came out on this one. And I had some avocado puree so I randomly decided to make a special batch of basil sage and mint.
May 23, 2019: Custom Labels
I love how this labels came out. They’re on full bar soaps in clear boxes and they’re just so striking. It was such a fun time creating these soaps/labels! Can’t wait for the bride to see them. Hopefully she love them!
