|These flowers are showing up in all my creations this month!|
A sign of spring fever, I'd say.

|Jimmy in his sculpting workshop working on my "special order" for|
a clay model in preparation for making a silicone mold
in which to pour soap batter.
|Here is the silicone mold he made, with a plaster|
support and rubber bands to hold it together.
|Jimmy agreed to help me make this special soap for |
the Soap Challenge Club's January contest in which the
idea is to collaborate a soap design and recipe with a partner.
|Jimmy has been somewhat interested in my soap making passion, |
in fact he did ask for a sandalwood soap for his use.
He seemed to enjoy helping me make soap for this project.
|One of the most enjoyable aspects of soap making is the cutting of the soap, |
in this case, however,
what a joy to un-mold this soap!! It worked!
|Two Artists are better than one.|
Especially if one has a pencil behind his ear.
Thank You Jimmy!

|My entry into this month's soap challenge |
(http://soapchallengeclub.com) is a soap made with
Homemade Craft Beer by a local beer makin' guy,
Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, & Rice Bran Oil.
|The soap is scented with the Essential Oils of |
Bergamot, Cedarwood, and Patchouli.
Yeah, smells woodsy, outdoorsy, like a tiger...kinda....
Ok, Ok, smells grrrreat!

|A generous friend brought over wax/candy|
molds- oh boy, getting fancy on designing
decorative wraps for my soaps.
Wax snow flake with wax snowman smushed on top.
This soap is Irish Seaweed Soap.
Smells like the ocean.
