Hello Everyone,
I have been busy working on holiday items. This year I am going for another look for some of my soaps. I decided to make some soaps in pastel pink (of course), pale blue, light lavender, and soft aqua. They will all have silver, gold, and pearl highlights. I have also created a golden angel. I hope this one appeals to the angel lovers. On a more traditional note, I have a cardinal soap. He is made of red and white soap with hand-painted highlights.

It feels good to get ready for the holidays early, but now I wish I had spent more time on next week's Pink Friday theme. Oh well.....

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week.

What was the fragrance that you used in the soap from the retreat last year? It was marvelous!

Hi Marie!

Your soaps are beautiful! My ,my how creative you are. I love them all and especially the Cardinal soap. I used to own a Cardinal. An ex boyfriend gave him to me. I know they are not domesicated,but it was used to being in a cage when I got it. So it lived with me for 17 yrs! But sadly died of old age. I used to love the way he sang at Thanks for sharing Marie. Love your work as always,
