Welcome! Thanks so much for joining me in my soap making adventures! I only started making soap one month ago, and I’m already totally addicted. I’m hoping to be able to share my experiences as I attempt to make something with my own two hands.
A huge thank you to Amy Warden of Great Cakes Soapworks for starting a weekly soap making challenge. Prior to this challenge, I’d only made 4 batches of soap! Yep, you heard me right! FOUR! I ran across Amy’s blog while researching different methods and recipes, and I instantly felt at home with her and the other soapers that I’ve “met” there. I’m continually inspired by all of their beautiful work and blogs, so much so that I’ve started my own!
I’m up to eight batches of soap now, and we’ve just finished Week 3 of the challenge: piping cold process soap. You can see what I did and what so many others have done here. I’m having a blast trying out different techniques and ingredients, learning and laughing, pondering and occasionally being frustrated. And I especially love to see the beautiful creations of the other soapmakers from around the world! This week’s challenge: using alcohol to make soap. Hmmm…trying to plan out my first batch of alcohol soap. I think I’ll stick with beer to start, and perhaps I’ll try to make my hubby some good shaving soap.
Please check out my About page to meet me!
Here are some pictures of my first attempts at soap.
Thanks for joining me! Stay tuned for more in the weeks to come!
