S.O.A.P. Team Winter 2014!!! MY AMAZING 10″ Silicone Loaf Mold!

I have been waiting for so long to write this post… And today Anne-Marie finally posted about the Winter 2014 S.O.A.P. Team!!! I would love to be in the S.O.A.P. Team as a fragrance tester for some of the new scents this year! I believe that I could add a special something to the team as a new soap maker who has spent every last scrap of her money(and my dad’s) on stuff for soaping. Being a member of this S.O.A.P. Team would allow me to expand my soap-making experience, and allow me to become better at my passion… Soap-making! I will also be able to spend time, effort, and money on this project, and turn everything in on time!!!

This Silicone Mold is the PERFECT mold for new soap makers who don’t fully understand the in’s and out’s of soap making! If you soap to hot, you can easily stuff a very thick traced soap into it and make it look good! You can insulate and experiment¬† with gelling. You can practice any swirl or recipe and not have to worry about making more than 9(or ten if you don’t give out samples) bars. I got this mold as an extra cause I had a little extra cash in the bank and I wanted to use all the room in my 30.00$ shipping box. I AM SO GLAD I DID!!!!¬† This is my saving grace for any kind of soap: hot process, cold process, and cpop(YES YOU CAN CPOP!!!)

Happy New Year-What are a Your New Year’s Resolution

Here in Colorado we still have over 3 hours till we ring in 2014… I am not one to ever have ‘New Year’s Resolutions’, but as we inch closer to the big ball drop I thought I would make just a few soap-related resolutions…
1.To stop keeping myself up watching soaping101, soapqueen tv, and sudsnsuchllc YouTube videos(I am telling you I lose about two hours of sleep every night like by watching them)
2.To master my soap recipe so it will not go to thick trace after two minutes…
3.To master my drop swirl
4.To make a soap for every month(12 different soaps, but not a soap a month. I don’t have that kind of money… SMALL BUSINESS OWNER HERE)
5. To grow my business and provide excellent soap and service for all of you amazing customers…

This year we have also seen 5 amazing things that are both soap and non-soap related…
1.I started a business on the 21 of June with a small soap-making kit which contained a pound each of clear and white melt and pour, 1 fragrance, 1 turtle and frog mold, and three .5 oz of primary colors…
2. I turned 15 and got my permit…
3. I welcomed a new little “nephew” Gideon James in November
4.I made my 1st Cold Process Soap
5.My best friend came home from California
Well any way we have 4 minutes till the ball drops in NYC so I hope you have fun and a happy healthy New Year!!!
