Oh how i've missed Craftster, let me count the ways!!!!!

For the past two years i've been in hiding because I had a baby boy in  2010 and prior to that, was put on major bed rest and not allow to craft anything. So hubby made me shut it down :-(
Then right after having him, started planning a wedding!! And in the mix of that, cake competitions, 4 children and my grandma fell ill with brain, pancreatic and lung cancer (and i was back and forth taking care of her) and sadly 4 days before our wedding passed away which was November 19th 2011.

So out of all of that i'm just now getting some type of order to my life and have been able to get back into my lab and create :-)

I just wanted to share the first soap i've done in two year and it's Watermelon Taffy Soap.
Cp Soap but in whipped form!! Bottom is green, middle is a little bit of white and the top is pink with lots of swirls and glitter. The black specks are Black Hawaiian Sea Salt for a little bit of eye candy and to give the effect of a slice of watermelon.

I do not have a tutorial on it because I've always used Nizzy's website as my guide.
So for anyone daring here is the link and I hope you find some use from it http://nizzymoulds.com/Whipped/index.htm
Using this method does takes a little practice and learning what seizes and what doesn't, oils that work best for you and everything else but once you get it, it's hard to stop!

Glad to be back and happy crafting <3

These are so cute. I would love to get back into soap making. But I feel like I don't have time to really dedicate to make beautiful soaps like these.
