Another Cool Looking Soap

I love how this one looks, and it smells divine. I have another fair coming up in two weeks, I’ll have to test this bar to see if it’s ready to use.

Swirls

I learned a cool swirling technique from Corrie over at Lomond Soap. I love how my batch of Christmas soap came out. This one is scented with Fir Needle essential oil and a natural green colorant. Need to make more batches for the holidays.

The Economy

I’m curious to know how other soapmakers are faring during this economic downturn.  Are you concerned about your business? Or are you doing all you can to market yourself and get more sales? I’m still in the start-up process, and have been successful on a small scale.  I’m just wondering if people will be spending money on handmade items during the recession, and especially for the holidays.

What are you doing to keep your business growing? I’d love to know.

Also, I just cut a new batch of soap today. I’ll post pictures soon. It’s yummy, and one I’ve been obsessed with perfecting.
