I've been busy making soap (and having a bunch of fun doing it) and
wanted to share my results. 

Backstory: This is my Mother's Day present to my Mom-- she's selling antiques and crafts at a local Spring Antique Sale and I've made and shipped all this soap to her to sell, and keep the profits (and any unsold soap).  I wanted to be supportive of her antique selling project and thought this would accompany her existing stock at her booth.

I made 64 tartlets, 12 soap balls and a 24 small shell-shaped bathroom soaps.  Many thanks to Michaels 40% off coupons and the swappers in the DIY Rd 7 and Fill A box supply swap that sent me various soap making supplies.

On to the photos. 

This is the logo I created for the labels and the "Rustic Relaxation"--A blend of coconut and palm oils combined with organic oatmeal---soap (2 pkgs of two soap tartlets each plus 4 pkgs of a trio of hand-rolled soap balls in a decorative nest, as well as the seashell bathroom soap.  I used an vintage butter mold to make these small shells.  The tartlets were molded in a Silicone Tartlet pan.

Here they are all packaged in cellophane with a little ribbon and tag.

Finally the pictures of the various scents I made and gave them fun names Top L to R

A Twist of Lemon (3 pkgs of two soap tartlets each)Exfoliating Chamomile Tea soap in a glycerin base, with a Lemon slice in each bar.

High Tea (3 pkgs of two soap tartlets each) Exfoliating Hibiscus and Rosehip tea scrub soap, with a hint of rose perfume.

The "Rustic Relaxation" Oatmeal soap outside of its packaging

Rose Garden (3 pkgs of two soap tartlets each)Moisturizing Goats Milk soap with Vitamin E, speckled with dried rose petals.

Confetti Rose (3 pkgs of two soap tartlets each) Moisturizing Goats Milk tartlets with Vitamin E, infused with the essence of Fresh Cut Rose

Perk Me Up (6 pkgs of two soap tartlets each) A caffeinated combination of coffee blended with moisturizing Shea butter soap.

In a Tuscan Kitchen (24 individual soaps) Olive Oil soaps infused with real Rosemary leaves.


Finally on the Wist Bandwagon:  http://wists.com/OopsCreations

I have loads of good quality CIGAR BOXES available for trade.  Great for purses, shrines, jewelry boxes.  PM for Pics.
