Donna Karan Dupe...Be Delicious Blossom

A sophisticated blend of ruby cassis, ripe pineapple, sweet rose blossoms, and dewy fresh air.  That's the description of this fragrance oil Be Delicious Blossoms from Crafter's Choice.  It was a little on the pricey side but OMGoodness it smells amazing!

Did a little bit of a hanger swirl on this one.......this is not easy!  Need to watch Celine (The Soaperstar) videos on utube to master this technique!

Wrapped and ready for the shop!

Wish I had a nice big soaping room but for now my little kitchen will have to do! My hubby laughs everytime he see's me in this getup....better to be safe then sorry!

Have a Blessed Weekend!

Anjou Pear Blossoms Silk Soap

This looks so creamy and smells wonderful!
Made with my Shea Butter recipe and Anjou Pear Blossom fragrance oil from Nature's Garden.

Here you can see where I've piped leaves on each side of the soap that I mound in the middle.   Tomorrow after I slice the bars I will add silk curly gardenias on each bar.

Will post cut bars tomorrow....can't wait to see them!

Love to Pipe Soap!!

 This is how I wrap my bars for sale in the beauty shop.  Inside the organza bag they are wrapped in smell thru shrink wrap which keeps them nice and clean but let's the smell come thru.

Had sooo much fun making these soap slices!!
First I made the bars using my favorite moisturizing recipe that's loaded with shea butter, coconut oil, palm oil,avocado oil, jojoba oil and olive oil.  The next day I piped them on top and added soap leaves and a silk rose.   The bottoms are fragranced with Victorian Rose and the tops are amazing combination!


"Pure Seduction"

Just finished cutting this soap and it smells amazing! 
The sent is a Victoria Secret dupe I think,
made by Crafter's Choice.

For Christmas my awesome hubby bought me a soap cutter I've had my eye on for awhile.  It's made by Bud Haffner and he has a shop on Etsy called Buds Workshop.The workmanship is amazing and he will customize it to your needs. Check him out if you are in the market for an awesome soap cutter!
I just love the chunky 1 & 1/4 inch bars.  They weigh a whopping 7 to 7.5 ounces each !
