It's Beginning to Smell a Lot Like Christmas...

...which is discombobulating, because it's still 95 degrees outside.  C'mooooonnnnn, Fall!

Here's a sneak peek at my holiday themed soaps, which will be available in late October:

ooo, shiny!

That's We Three Kings in the back and O Tannenbaum in the front.  I'm quite pleased with how the color turned out in O Tannenbaum -- I was going for a "blue spruce" effect, and chromium oxide blended with some blue-grey mica turned out really nice.

Now, you've heard of "comfort food?" Next up is "comfort soap":

Pumpkin Pie

Click on the picture to make it bigger -- see the little speckles throughout?  That's ground oatmeal.  It soothes the skin, provides gentle exfoliation, and because of its natural linoleic acid content, the lather is that much fluffier!  Don't worry, Jess, I'm saving you a bar.

And now for the party shelf:

On the left, Apple Cider.  On the right, Cranberry.  The guest linen closet smells AMAZING, I have to tell you.

Just don't expect to find any linens.
