You guys probably saw the posts back in May I posted about my sister’s bridal shower (where I did the really cute sunflower soap favors). Well, the wedding day finally arrived and (despite all the stress leading up to it) it was a wonderful day. I did mini cupcake soap favors (as the cake was a “cupcake cake”). The day was truly wonderful and I thought I’d share a few pictures that highlighted it all (albeit about six months after the event…but hey better late than never)!
On the “party bus” to the reception!
Bride and Groom – Happily Married!
BK pit stop on the way to Recption somehow resulted in crowns ;)
Cake topping for the Bruins and Flyers Fan!
This was all my doing ;) The two nieces framing the happy couple. We won’t go into the effort it took to get this shot ;). I’m in love with it though!
More bride and groom (you can’t have too many of them ;)).
You may now kiss the bride!
Becca and Zach being entertained by my maid of honor speech.
My doing again ;) We had the groomsmen and bridesmaids write on chalkboards how they new the bride and groom and took a picture of us hold them for them. Love these pics!
Backyard wedding…It was quite amazing!
Ahh here are the bridesmaids!
Aren’t they adorable!
And they’re married!
Dad giving away the beautiful bride. I had tears in my eyes.

I always find these “year in review” reports interesting! I have lots in store for 2016! I need to sit and find some time to write my posts, but until then have fun with these stats!
What cracks me up is some of my most viewed posts this year were not posts from this year (or even last year) but previous years!
I had visitors from 176 different countries!! How cool is that. Thanks Anne-Marie from SoapQueen! You made the most comments on my blog this year! Totally appreciate your support!
Happy New Year!
Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 100,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.

And the last winter scent: Holiday Berry! My favorite and the favorite of many of my customers. I changed up the design again this year. I like this. I kept the pink/green/white color scheme, but only did an in the pot swirl for two colors and end had that pink surround the ITP swirl. I like it! Now listed!
Holiday Berry: Ripe raspberry intermingled with orange zest and warm musk.

This is by far my most popular “pine” scent soap that I make. Same design as last year. I really like the different green colored cubes embedded in another green base.
Cedar & Balsam: A camphoraceous woody blend of pine, eucalyptus, cedarwood; finished with sweet balsam. This fragrance is composed of top notes of orange, raspberry, and plum; middle notes of lily, carnation, and hyacinth; base notes of balsam, pine, eucalyptus, and cedarwood.
I had some left over cubes and a tree cookie cutter so I decided to make a small batch of tree embeds. Didn’t quite work out how I imagined, so next year I’ll just stick to the same design I’ve done the past three years.
