So Misty and I were on Facebook the other day yapping about our new soaps, and it turns out that she and I made a very similar soap-at least in color, lol. I've been holding on to this coffee-scented soap for a good while because I've been Brett Favre-ing (that's a new TSSism-translation: waffling) about whether I'd actually make a soap with it, or use it to make candles. I know you're probably saying just do both, but you know my mind is sometimes a day late and a dollar short.
Anyway, I made a new batch of my Amaretto Cake Bars, and I made these Cafe Mocha Loca Bars (that's my new soap.) I didn't want to use coffee in this soap, so I used cocoa powder instead to color it. It sort of looks like coffee grounds too. I'm not a big coffee lover, so the mocha scent and the cocoa powder takes some of the coffee edge off.
These are listed in my Etsy and 1KM shops. I have temporarily closed my Art Fire shop because I'm Brett Favre-ing about whether to stay at a "verified" status or downgrade to basic. I haven't made a sale there since December, and frankly, I'm wasting $12.00 a month (should be $7.00 but I won't go there) with zero sales to at least cover my fees. Don't wanna hear you gotta promote, blah, blah, blah. Maybe it's no longer the venue for me. I love all the cool apps they have, but it means zilch if you're not making sales.

Oh yeah, I'm also Brett Favre-ing about whether to re-launch my own website too? Whatcha think?
