Fell Off the Earth, and Back Again

So sorry I have been MIA from this blog.  With the holiday season, I was unbelievably busy.  The best part is, 2012 is looking to be even more busy.  I already have two shows booked and I'm working on two new lines for this year: Children's Soaps & From Scratch Soaps.  The children's soaps are slowly being added, but they are super fun and will definitely get your little ones wanting to wash.

The from scratch are a little different.  I started making soaps with a process of something called Melt & Pour.  Melt & Pour (or MP) is great, because it allows for amazing creativity without the handling of certain chemicals.  I love Melt & Pour and throw my whole self into it. However, I needed a little something more.  I decided in the last couple months of 2011 that it was time to start experimenting. 

Think of MP as making a cake from a mix.  You still have a lot of work to do, but some of the measuring was done ahead of time.  From scratch is just that....the soap is entirely from scratch.  Since this is a new process and takes a little bit of a learning curve, 2012 is our year of testing.  We have several testers and their first samples will be going out in the next week or two.  Why test for a year?  Well, I want to bring the absolute best products out rather than add one or two, then find out people don't like them.  We're doing our best to make sure that these products are awesome from day 1!

So that's what has been going on here.  I'll do my best to update this more and with some awesome pictures.  In the meantime, here are some of our fabulous Valentine's soaps.  If you're interested in any of them, please visit us at

Champagne & Strawberries - I love this soap.  While making it, I couldn't help but keep sniffing it, it's intoxicating.

The Romance Package - A blend of roses, champagne, and a hint of chocolate.  Everything you love about romance in a soapy cube!
