Check out this item in my Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/listing/540254481/buttered-popcorn-soap

Yes, as a huge fan of popcorn, I had to make buttered popcorn soap! 

I have also listed a chevron knitted hat. I plan to add more of my knitted and crocheted items in my shop later this month. 

Hoping everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July!

New Soap!

So I am a little rusty on soap making! It showed on my pomegranate soap two weeks ago! I won’t even post a picture of it! I made another loaf last week, not bad and then cut this yesterday. 

My new soap is scented with white citrus. The top cracked just a bit, but still much nicer than the last two attempts! I made white tea and ginger soap yesterday and so far it looks good. (Memo to self, never take a two month break from soapmaking!)

I played with bath bombs yesterday. I strayed from my trusty recipe and tried a new one. It started to react when I added the wet ingredients and I had to save it by adding more dry ingredients. It caused the mixture to dry faster and I had enough time to cut out stars and then roll the rest into bath “rocks!”

It was fun and the bath bombs still did well when I tested a couple. (Memo to self: stick with the best recipe!)

I love being creative and messy and having fun with the bath products I make. A lot of failures and some successes, but a whole lot of learning and loving the process. 

I am planning to add bath bombs in my Etsy shop next month and bubble bars in March. Check out my soaps, stop by www.etsy.com/shop/littlemisssuds

Cotton Candy soap

Last week I was busy making a wholesale order of cotton candy soap. I am pretty happy with the way this soap turned out. I made more to have in my shop before Christmas. 

I am making most of the gifts this year. I get frustrated when trying to shop for other people and decided to make afghans and bath sets. Handmade blankets can be passed down from one person to another and who doesn’t like to pamper themselves with a nice relaxing bubble bath? 

Do you like to buy or make your gifts? 

Busy week! 

My housework has been put on hold,  again! That is my plan for the day! This past week, I have been playing with ChapStick! Making my own! Looking for that perfect chocolate peppermint mix! 

I made a popcorn stitch hat for winter and made soap! 

I plan to call it Winter Garden. It will be available in my Etsy shop November 1st. I also made Sugar cookie soap. Sorry, no pictures, (my dog Patch is in my lap!), but I love how dark the fragrance turned the soap. Smells great and it too will be available November 1st. 

I have also been working on a baby sweater. It is finished, but needs to be put together! (Lots of unfinished projects for me to do.) 

My next plan of action is to buy a photo box for professional pictures. Any photo tips would be greatly appreciated!

Soap bags! 

Do you know that one frugal person who won’t throw away a sliver of soap because it would be wasteful? I have the perfect gift for them! Soap saver bags! 

Just throw the scraps into the bag and you will never waste soap again! Or put a whole bar in it! 

I just added these cute bags to my Etsy shop last night. Two bags for $5. Go check it out! The colors available are purple, orange, blue and holiday. 

I will be adding more colors eventually. I hope you have a great weekend! Melissa

Tangerine Madness

Did I tell you that I love making soap?! I call the soap above Tangerine Madness! I have a plain bar in my shop and this big bar, which can be cut in two pieces. I was having fun playing with piping and really loved how the top turned out.

Last night I made bubble bars and tonight I have to make 30 bath bombs for my daughters portfolio show! I am very excited for her! She graduates from art school at the end of the month. 

Above are my Honeysuckle and plain Tangerine soaps. Stop by my Etsy shop for a browse!
