1  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Peeking in to say hi!!! [Watermelon Taffy Soap] on: April 17, 2012 11:49:45 AM
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

2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / I'm back :-) [Raspberry Clay Soap, Bath Macaroons, & More] on: September 16, 2010 05:31:03 AM
Man and it feels so good!!!!

I had to go incognito b/c guess what?! I had a baby! Yup July 21st is when Kameron Xavier made his way into the world at 6lbs 12oz. My pregnancy was such a downer b/c I was put in the "high risk" category which made have to be put on bed rest, not allowed to make any products, had to get shots once a week, went into preterm labor about 4 times, diagnosed with Hyperemesis AND this is all while taking care of my other 3 children! But all is well, the house is sorta back to normal and i'm sorta back to creating!

I've been checking in and out and I'm loving all of the new idea's and creativity that you all have been doing.... YA'LL ROCK :-)

I had a FEW minutes to spare to myself this past week and wanted to show off a little of what i've done! It's nothing major or spectacula BUT amazing b/ci'm nursing and I actually got time to myself to do it, lol. I hope you enjoy it!
Remember it's NON edible and for the bath only :-)

3  UNITED STATES / Maryland / Harford County Crafters?! Anyone? on: November 18, 2009 06:38:55 AM
So i've been apart of this groupd for over a year and JUST NOW found out they had this section! I feel like a dork!

Anyhoo.... I thought I do a post to see if there are any crafters in my area? My family and I just got our first house in the area bout 7 months ago (Edgewood) and I would love to find someone or people with the same intrest as me!
I sorta have down time, but it's spreaded out during the day due to my being a SAHM and running my business. It would so be cool to have people come over and occupy some of this space with me and craft and bake with me!
Who knows where it might lead business wise but either way it goes i'm up for new friends like me!

So if you like soap making, bath and body making, jewelry, polymer clay, sewing (i'm certainly not a pro)  baking (about to start doing wedding and shower/party orders, yay me!) and making candy... pretty much just everything that deals with being creative, look me up!

You can send me a email and let me know and of course reply back on here since i found this place!

Look forward to meeting new neighbors  :-)

4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Hand designed Soap Bars on: September 28, 2009 05:10:39 PM
So, i've been dying to test out my true design skills and came up with these ever so cute soap bars!
TRUST ME i'm no artist, the flowers are just something I learned in nail tech school, lol.....

So it's just using the regular sqare bar mold from WSP and the designs are hand painted with a soap paint base that you mix equal parts of acrylic paint with, let it dry and then do a thin layer of base of it. It's tricky to work with so if you try it have some patience and k now Rome wasn't built in a day :-)
The other design is done with a cookie cutter, imagination and Mica from TKB :-)

So i've been incognito for a few months due to having a new house. Yeah yeah you would think it's exciting and fresh and fun... and it is but good greif!!! Having 3 kids that seem to find any space they can to hide and store stuff and never ending laundry can take a toll on you!!!

I finally have my own studio which i'm super duper happy about, so i've been able to come up with more Soap Porn!!
For your viewing pleasures, I do hope you enjoy!

7  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Soap Fun In the Summer Time! on: June 02, 2009 06:19:26 AM
so here are a few bar soaps I whipped up this past weekend.

I'm so happy with the way they came out too! It's done via the Hot Process Method, so trust me when it came time to scent color and mold I was running around like a chicken with its head cut off!! I know I took a step away form my normal "food" soaps but I wanted to try a few bars in the mix of things...... I got my Fragrances from NG (NaturesGarden) And they have them in 1oz bottles and if you get 10 or more they only cost you $2 (saving $0.50) the dyes I've been using are from a ebay supplier and also WSP liquid dyes. So far i've not been dissapointed!

So for your viewing pleasures:
And Watermelon Taffy.... this fragrance is strong watermelon and you can smell the faintness of vanilla, like you would with real taffy, I tried to make this look like a slice of Watermelon as much as possible!! I liked it so much I had to add three pictures :-)

Black Tie Label (for Men) It musk, basil, lemon, spice, black pepper, cucumber and Kaffir lime..... It's really smells like Burberry cologne and I added Black Hawaiian Charcoal Sea Salt for a little scrubbing. My fiance used it last night and said this is his new fav...

Baby Blue Suggar (unisex but more for men) it's base is vanilla but topped with, musk, patchouli and i'm telling you this fragrance is so sexy..... if you make some soap you gotta try this one

Hawaiian Fruity Punch (it smells just like the red H.P you used to drink when you where little..... i'm totally impressed with this fragrance)
8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Cherry Lemonaide, Fruit Loops and Candy Apple Soap on: April 02, 2009 07:22:15 AM
So I strayed away from my normal "Sweets" and did a few bars.....
For some reason when I do them I feel so relaxed  Cheesy
These are all done by the HP (hot process) Method

Hope you enjoy!

Candy Apple

9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / A Few New Sweets: Cupcake Bath Bombs, Body Shot Soaps & More on: March 26, 2009 05:28:52 PM
So i've been a little busy trying to figure out what sweet to make next and here are a few!

As for tutorials I cannot take credit on the steps, that would have to go to WSP's blog.... Wholesalesuppliesplus.com blog has a great tutorial on how to get the whipped soap look! Once you go to their page, just click on the blog and they have tons a recipes and tuts!! I got the initial recipe from them but added my own touches which is why I cannot put it here but I deff want them to have the credit, so go check out their blog!!! It's amazing!!!

As for the Body Shots Soap easy peasy! Just get a Shot Glass mold (ebay), Pour your soap. Once it's set take another color and fragrance to fill it and then top it how you like! I topped mines off with a handmade lime with drizzles :-)
