To-Do list

Just a short note to let you know that I'm still alive.  :)  I've been on a little hiatus, having spent some time in Texas, making a wedding cake for and participating in one of the happiest weddings ever.  But I'm anxious to get back into my soaping routine and here are a few things that I have lined up for this coming week.

1) The first order of business is painting my soap studio.  Ace Hardware stores are having a special promotion during March, offering a free quart of paint every Saturday (last day is tomorrow!!).  I've been wanting to repaint for months so it is perfect timing for me.  I chose Briarwood, a pale green, and painted the first half last night.  I love it!

2) I've joined Amy Warden's soap challenge and I'm looking forward to trying all kinds of different techniques in the coming months.

3) Inspired by a soaping friend, I'm going to make a loaf of whipped soap.  I haven't whipped any soap in at least a year and I usually use my decorating tips and cupcakes molds.  I've never made a loaf, so here goes.  (And then we will compare notes, Holly!)

4) Mother's Day and the start of the Farmer's Market are only about 6 weeks away!  Enough said there.

....I just realized that I should have added pictures to this post--a nice thought if my camera were with me.  Well, wedding cake and soap studio before/after pix will get a post of their own soon!

  1. Nice to see you back. I'm doing the soap challenge as well and enjoying it. Think it's this week or next that Amy is doing one with whipped soap.

    Our markets start soon as well.
