Back To Work!
Are you like me? On December 26th, I am officially in "Christmas is over mode." I'm ready to move on. It's kind of a sad sentiment, but the hype is over, and I'm ready to start the new year, and a new life so-to-speak. With that being said, I'm ready to get back to doing what I love, and that's making soap! I have so many new things in the pipeline that I can hardly contain myself. I've got many new glycerin soaps in the works. While I love and appreciate the artistic skills of a glycerin soap crafter, I am not a glycerin soap crafter. I love working with glycerin (or melt and pour) soaps, but only if I have a really fun mold to use. I don't have the patience or skills of say a Milk and Cookeez, a Soapylove, or a Sunbasil Garden. They make fabulous glycerin soaps, and I will leave that to the experts! So where the heck I'm I going with all of this??? I'm rambling as usual, but the point is, I MADE SOME SOAP, lol!
I decided to use my silicone loaf mold for this batch, and it's scented in a dupe of Jo Malone's (the best dang perfumer in the world in my opinion) Black Vetyver Cafe. It's very spicy, some would even say incense-y, so dudes will dig it too. I love the long slices you get when using this mold. It sorta reminds me of biscotti (After much debating, I ended up cutting the "wings" off the soap. They just looked too weird for me.) I CPOP'ed it because it's now my preferred method of making soap now. So, stay tuned as I bring you more ramblings and of course, more soap!
