First New Soap of 2011


Again Happy New Year! Is it me, or has readership fallen off? Nobody comments anymore, and I miss that (sniffle, sniffle....)!

Anyway, here's my first soap of the year, and it looks like I was celebrating a little too much when I made it. The colors are all wrong-but it smells nice! It's Wicked-version 5 or 6. This is the one soap that I change the design of each and every time, and it seems to get wickeder each time. Fool that I am used that brick red oxide which is really nothing more than orange/brown if you ask me...I tried to offset it with a lot of purple, and this is what I came up with. The scent is Black Raspberry & Vanilla-probably one of my top 3 scents of all time. I do love the black swirls though. This is also a palm-free soap. I'm really low on palm oil, so I'm reserving what I have left for a more elaborate batch I'm planning. I used extra virgin olive oil and unrefined shea butter, so my batter was a greenish-orange tint before I colored the soap. As a result, the top is kinda orange-ish-go figure. I really wanted more bells and whistles for this one, but I was so pressed to make some soap, that I didn't design my project before starting. Well, here's to you Wicked: You prove every time that beauty's only skin deep...yeah, yeah...

Wow, you are quick making soap in the new year. I am still recovering....

Sounds like a really nice fragrance. It is on my wishlist ;-)

I am looking forward to seeing more creations this year.

Thanks Sonja! My goal is to pump out 2 new soaps (brand new fragrances) per month). I just love making soap! Now I need to order supplies because I'm virtually on "E".

Yes, I've noticed the lack of comments too, hint, hint. :) Finally getting back into the swing of things. Got my kids back in school, hubby back to work. In other words, I got my house back to myself!! LOL! Btw, I agree - Black Raspberry & Vanilla is AWESOME.
