So, I’ve been waiting to share something that is both humbling and super exciting for me in the soaping realm. The Soap Challenge technique in December was the spoon swirl, and…
I WON Sponsor’s Choice!!!
Can you believe it?!?! I really couldn’t!
Here’s the soap I made that won:

Tina from Majestic Mountain Sage contacted me after the holidays and graciously gifted me an Amazing Dozen sampler set from thesage.com. She told me that my soap reminded her of handmade paper with leaves and petals and seeds, and it made her want to whip out her stationery and write some notes! Too funny!
It was so much fun choosing which fragrances to get, and even though I know a dozen is a lot, I still had a difficult time picking! I’ve never received a scent that I didn’t like (or LOVE) from MMS! Their fragrances are simply fantastic. I typically only use just 0.25oz per pound of oils when scenting cold process soap, so a 1oz bottle goes a long way!
And this is what I received in the mail a few days ago:
These scents are all so very yummy. I absolutely adore Apricot Freesia, Posh Petals, Napa Valley Vineyard (I feel a red wine soap coming soon), and Juicy Pear. Oh, and Lemon Sugar, and Bay Rum, and … They’re ALL FANTASTIC! I’m quite pleased with my choices, and I am so grateful to Tina and Majestic Mountain Sage for being so generous as the sponsor of the December Challenge Club. Thanks, Tina! It was wonderful to work with you! 🙂
If you’re looking to try out some new fragrances, I highly recommend thesage.com. (And by the way, I’m not an affiliate or anything. I’m just telling you this because I truly love them!) They’re a great company with excellent customer service, and I’ve never had a problem with any order I’ve placed, from supplies ordered to packaging to shipping; it’s just good service.
I would also, of course, be remiss if I didn’t thank Amy Warden of Great Cakes Soapworks for hosting these challenges, working so hard on creating great tutorials, and arranging all of the sponsors and details. She is an awesome soaper that has blessed me and many other soapers all over the world! So, thanks Amy! I truly appreciate you, and I know so many others do as well.
WAHOO! Which fragrance should I use first?!
