How about some warm sunshine already?
The weather has been gloomy and snowy. Not that I don't like snow - in fact, I LOVE snow! - but the lack of sunshine has been going on way too long. Not good, not good at all.
So I decided to whip up a batch of bright and sunny soaps, enhanced with my newly-acquired Sweet Orange 5 Fold essential oil. I remember reading somewhere that Sweet Orange 10 Fold gives you a lasting citrus scent, but 5 fold is the only close one I could get, I decided to give it a try anyway.
I guess now he knows the excitement I experience every time I make and cut soaps!
The impressions come from the rubber sheets I found at Michael's. It's kind of tricky working with the fine details because small air pockets get trapped in there if the trace gets too heavy. I like the look though, and I'll definitely go back to collect more designs for my soaps!
