I shared in an earlier post that my daughter lives in Vegas and is home for a visit. She has been telling me that she was really looking forward to seeing the soap I have made as well as making some. I am going to have to check her suitcase before she heads home, to make sure she doesn't smuggle any out, because she really loves all the scents and soap I have! She has only made soap with me one time before and she is so excited to make soap again so we decided to make a batch today. We laughed and laughed and had such a great time. We spilled oil and dropped things, made mistakes and just had fun and some how the soap turned out fine in the end. But we were very careful when we needed to be. I let Ashley make the soap from start to finish. Here is a picture of her being very careful and wearing protective gear as she prepares to mix the lye in the water.
This picture makes me chuckle every time I see it! And what a great sport to let me post it on my blog! I asked her what kind of soap she wanted to make and she wanted something really colorful with a swirl. We decided to make a funnel swirl and she chose, electric pink, charcoal and fizzy lemonade yellow for the colorants. I think they are going to look great together when it is all done. I love that she chose bright colors I tend to stick with more earth colors so it was fun to do something that was out of the box for me. Here is a photo before we combined all the colors with the soap.
Can you see how bright and vibrant the colors are that she picked out? I think it is going to look great! I would have never picked these bright colors so it is fun to sometimes stretch yourself a little and let someone else design because it will definitely not look like anything I would have come up with. I will post a picture of the soap in this post as soon as we cut it. So be sure to check back!
