Here’s my first soap made for 2016! Handmade soap cold process method. Cucumber mint with coconut milk. Looks nice and creamy. I am going back to work next Monday, so my soaping times will be only on the weekends.

Making gift sets are always fun to make. I have created a gift set for some of my co-workers, she wanted to gift her children’s teachers. I added a handmade soap, lip balm,bath bomb and a wash cloth. I created a bag topper in microsoft word, printed it out on a beige cardstock, folded into two and stapled onto a plastic cello packaging for the bath bombs. All the labels were created by me. I inserted all the products into a plastic bag and decorated it with a ribbon bow and some raffia.
