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!
