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.
