Had the honor of meeting Merilyn from @utopiabathltd out of Bellport yesterday. Her story behind her company is truly amazing and her products are even better! Thank you for my wet n wooly soap and this great photo!
At Bath Bonanza yesterday Kate helped me set up the class. She's taken the glass each time I've given it and knows my system. She even took my phone to snap this picture. Yes, she remembers the code 😊

Another not-so-pretty picture from a soap business. I needed a safer cabinet for my sodium hydroxide. After consulting with my fire fighter son-in-law, I chose this one. Expensive, but necessary.
I know this isn't a pretty picture. But there are parts of soapmaking that aren't pretty. I spent the morning mastetbatching oils. Cleanup is the worst. Everything is covered in oils, from my stainless steel table to my gloves. And my clothes. The good news is that I'm set for the next month of soapmaking 😊
A mess of micas. These were used for the Laney Line and need to be put away.
Olivia swirls her soap in Bath Bonanza.
Ryland had a donut themed birthday party so all the products we made were donut related. Vanilla donut, strawberry pop donut and cinnamon backlava scented bath geodes, soap and scrubs. Yum!
A dozen red roses. Soap roses, that is. Maybe for your Valentine Limited number, message me for details.

Thank you! You loved the new look of the Laney Line so much, I needed to make more!
Lavender Lemongrass was the first soap I made to sell. Still my favorite. What's yours
Sundays are for having fun and making messes, dontcha think
Esther and her nephew came to make room sprays with me. We had a blast and their homes will be awesome smelling!!

Working on something for next weeks blog
We made soap this week in Bath Bonanza. My students loved the fish soap!

Can you see the difference Both are beautiful colors. I'm happy I nailed the red.

Very pretty, but not the color I was trying for. Back to the soap studio...
Looks like witches potion to me, but it will become red roses 🌹
