11  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / puzzled: Homemade Puzzle Piece Soap on: September 28, 2006 07:21:27 AM
One of my friends suggested making these and it was a brilliant idea.  They are so fun!


I love how they fit together.  Smiley

I made them in 4 different scents/colors. 
Pink = apple, orange = tangerine, green = lime and blue = raspberry.

I'm hoping they'll appeal to kids.  What do you think?

I wanted to make something dangly and kind of cool looking (cool as in color).




Then I made these earrings that have a similar feel...

I made this recently.  What do you think?





I especially love the clasp... so girly.
14  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Soap Business Insurance on: August 22, 2006 09:03:54 AM
If anyone's looking for liability insurance for a soap business, I finally found a good company.

Soap is so hard to cover... you need lots of insurance and I got laughed at by a couple of companies.  The Handcrafted Soap Makers Guild recommended RLI.

They're fantastic.  I sent them an email and one of the agents called me today and is going to cover my business for $250 for $1M product liability coverage.  (It varies by state.)  I am incredibly pleased with the customer service.  They know all about home craft business issues and will answer all your questions... their speciality is actually covering small in home businesses with gross revenues under $5000.  I highly recommend them if you're looking for insurance.

or 866.741.6560
The agents names are Ashley and Bryan (there are only 2).

I'm just setting up my craft business.  I sell soap products which can be a problem with liability insurance.  I got laughed at by a few other companies.  The Handcrafted Soap Maker's Guild recommended RLI.

I haven't been feeling that well this week, but I just can't sit still so I made these really basic bracelets.

17  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / soapy experimentation [lots o pictures] on: August 10, 2006 02:05:52 PM
I've been playing with melt & pour...

First I rediscovered the apple corer.  They smell like Apricot and Freesia.  Mmmm.  I still don't know how to cut the slices evenly.  And I know using the serrated knife wasn't my best idea ever... but they smell good.

with clear m&p


with yellow m&p


Then I tried embedding shapes.  This is a little weird because I started the purple fill with white m&p and ran out and had to switch to clear.  Also I poured it into a weirdly shaped plastic container... but it smells soapy like something from my childhood.


they're a little scratched up from being toted around in a plastic bag.  Smiley

18  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / melty goodness on: August 10, 2006 01:52:50 PM
I've been perfecting my bath melts.

I give you mocha hearts and peppermint twirls.  No color, but the hearts have silver mica in them. 





(I know that orange isn't a very minty color but it's all I had...)

What do you think?  They smell pretty darn good.

19  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Silly Soap Question on: August 10, 2006 11:16:54 AM
How do you slice column shaped soaps evenly?  I mean, the ones that come out of tubes like pringles cans -- how do you slice them uniformly?  Mine come out all wonky.

20  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Citric Acid + Foil = ? on: August 08, 2006 12:31:32 PM
I was wondering if anyone had ever tried wrapping bath bombs in foil...
or if anyone had ever seen it done.

Do you think there would be a chemical reaction between the citric acid and the metal?
