I dabbled in soap making back in 2008 and sold some soaps and candles in a couple shops when I lived in NY. Then I moved back to Inbredville, ND, and there weren't any places around this area where I could sell anything nice, so I quit making soap. Oh, I sold several bars to non-inbred friends around here, but I pretty much stopped. Lately, though, I've been making simple soaps to send to giveaway winners and swaps. This weekend, I decided to get back into soap making and am enjoying myself. I made this Honeysuckle Tangerine soap yesterday. Mmmm, it smells goooood.
Also made some "metal" flowers. They're so bright and cheery!
All I did was paint the tops of tuna cans and glued on some buttons. I think they turned out cute!
