Continuing my soaping projects for the new year. I am working on switching most of my soaps to a rectangular shape using the tall and skinny molds. So far so good. Based on customer feedback, many liked the look and feel of a rectangular soap. I am all for the new shape because it helps to make packaging easier. I enjoy making boxes for my soaps, but doing so can be time consuming. Making my soaps rectangular will allow me to use ready made boxes, and as such save me a lot of time on packaging. I'm sure that many soap makers will agree that packaging can sometimes be the bane of our existence.

I have lots of soaps to make for the New Year. One of the first to be done is a Pearberry type soap. This fragrance is just gorgeous. It's a fruity blend of pear, blackberry, raspberry and boysenberry. Made for the first time in my tall and skinny mold. Now i'm impatiently waiting for the unmolding and cut to see how the design pans out.

The valentine's day soap is cut and is now on the curing rack. The lychee red tea fragrance is just amazing. One of my personal favorites. I may just save a bar of soap for myself. I plan on having this scent as part of my permanent line-up. Of course i have to now decide whether or not i will use the same color combinations or change it up for future sales. I am loving the color, which is mixture of fuchsia and magenta. To complement the color of the soap i painted on some gold mica after the soap was cooled. This soap will be available for pre-order in a couple weeks.
