whoa I love feedback! Thanks to everyone Smiley

I should tell you a secret: I never used one of my soaps myself xD I bet I would feel terrible Wink I use store bought cream soap - shame on me!

Hmm I already thought about opening a shop on etsy or dawanda (german equivalent), but I'm not sure. I knit a bit, I crochet a bit, I scrapbook, make some cards, paint, sew a bit, make soaps, knead things from poly clay... I can do a bit of everything, but nothing so very good, that is why I never really opened a shop. But I'm glad to hear some of you would buy my soap! That makes me happy =) Perhaps I should give it a try!

13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sunny Side Up & Ice Cream Cone Plushie on: March 30, 2009 02:06:15 PM
I've always loves all those cute little plushies but I'm not very good at sewing so I hesitated a looong time. But today I gave it a try and came up with a sunny side up egg plushie and an ice cream cone with "chocolate sauce" and pearl-"sprinkles". What do you think of them? Do you think I will get better at this? I don't really like the ice cream cone :/ I don't know... Anyway: pics!

Oh man that is going to drive me nuts! Unfortunately I think doing a Google search for "brown speckled stone" wouldn't be much help, either!  Cheesy

me too... funny thing is I googled the exact same in german and had no useable result Grin

ETA: Oh, and I love, love the cinnamon one. It reminds me of some stone, but I can't think of the name...

I think I know which stone you're thinking of, but I can't think of the name either...

Thanks for the lovely comments everyone! Smiley

This made me smile - because I have a thing about both soap and cameos, *and* today I made melt and pour soap for the first time ever too, *and* I had decided to buy this very cameo mould from the company I got the m&p stuff from! Great minds think alike :-)

creepy thing is: you possibly won't believe this but I read a bit here and there on craftster a day or two ago and saw a comment posted by you and instantly loved your signature. So I "stole it" and used it for my ICQ status the day I made the soap!  Shocked
And really the same mould? Today I tried the single rose and the vase aaand the cameo bottom without cameo. I like them too, but the cameo is my favourite Wink I'd love to see your creations! When you upload them, could you perhaps send me the link or post it in here? That'd be nice!

back to topic: I just made another one. I used white vanilla for the top again, but this time I coloured the bottom part with cinnamon. Turned out great and added a good smell even though I didn't use very much cinnamon! Sadly in my town there is no shop where I could purchase fragrance oils. I think it's generally difficult to get for example cookie scented or caramel scented oil which you can use for soap making in germany. It's a pity! 

And I have to say: I do have a general cameo obsession. I love cameos on pill boxes, jewelry, soaps of course... I don't know why, but that is the way it is!  Grin

Wow, thank you very much for the kind words! Smiley I never thought you might like it that much. Haha, now I'm even more happy Wink

@ehinders: Is a plastic mold a traditional mold? I'm really new to this, so I have no idea! Hm well, I didn't make the mold myself, so I guess it's a traditional mold. But I think it might be fun to use minted chocolate boxes or things like that as a mold!

@Nymeria: It is really just unsweetened cocoa powder! A lot of it though ^^

Yaaay! I just finished my first soap ever! I just melted glycerin soap, so I didn't really make the soap, although I'd like to try that too, but I scented the white part with vanilla. The other part of the soap is colored and scented with cocoa powder. I added native coconut oil for better smell. I hope you like it Smiley

They look delicious! Smiley
There is something I'd really like to know: are they filled? If so, what did you use for the filling?
