I've been soaping the last three weeks, trying to get ready for a craft show just after Thanksgiving - doing a soap and sundries booth with my sister. These are the batches I am contributing - well, the overcolored soap will not be going, that stuff is WAY TOO PINK even though it smells divine Smiley

I just had to share

Top Row: Lavender Lane, Fresh Laundry
Middle: Shea You Love Me (overcolored), Oats N Honey, Three Kings, Shea You Love Me (toned down somewhat)
Front: Orchard Breeze, Raspberry Patchouli

Thanks for looking Smiley

Fun! I think you should take the pink to the craft fair. Did you use neon pigments? I've overdone the color with those before.

They all look great...and I actually like the neon-esque color  Grin

The Fresh laundry intrigues me

the overdone one is a FD&C color - can't remember the number. It is awful because everything it touches becomes pink! I shredded up some bars and put them in the next batch to tone it down a bit...

I agree, take the pink - you'd be surprised what some folks like to buy!

neon - yup - overdone with a green before ---  OMG!  (but it sold!)
