A Soap Making Weekend

It was a busy, productive weekend!  No bread was made, unfortunately, but lots of soap was made and a lot of pictures were taken.

You may recall from Friday, that I bought myself a new camera.
This weekend I was finally able to put it to good use.   The first photo is of my very popular Warm Cinnamon&Honey Goat Milk Soap.  This is a great smelling bar, packed with cinnamon, and has a beautiful rustic look.
Another powerful smelling bar is my Honey Safflower Goat Milk Soap. 
The natural smell of fennel complete with delicate safflower pedals make up this bar of soap.

We were lucky enough to have a beautiful weekend to take photos so I was able to get many shots outside.  One thing I still need to do, though, is get closer to the soap.

I really like this photo of my Pepperwood Goat Milk Soap. 
This soap contains a cedar and light anise scent to it.  Hot peppers are added to spice it up!  Although I've photographed this on a pink and blue crochet doily this is really a quite masculine bar.

Patchouli Cedar Sage Goat Milk Soap is also a masculine bar.  It has the warm scent of patchouli and cedar and is packed with dried sage.

This being a more rustic bar, I like the photo of it outdoors with the plants in the background.

I replenished my stock of Mug-o-Beer Soap this weekend as well.
 Audrey couldn't resist the sweet smell of basil and citrus emanating from this bar!  She hopped up on the window sill so she could get a better look!

This bar cut really beautifully, although I'm not happy with this photo.  I need to get closer to the soap!

And finally, a camera phone photo!  This is my latest Peppermint Goat Milk Soap.  It's not yet in the online store as it still needs to cure.  I experimented a little with this bar and embedded some soap curls on the top of it.  It is colored with all natural Brazilian Clay and Activated Charcoal.  Wow!  This bar packs a powerful peppermint scent to really get you going on a slow morning!

This bar will look even nicer once cut!

Well there you have it, my weekend in soap and pictures!  All these bars, except the Peppermint one, are available at the online store for only $5 each!  Free shipping is available for those orders over $30!
