If you signed up for this month's giveaway check your mailbox. The last of the boxes went out yesterday. If you asked for a tracking number check your Ravelry messages. There is also a box of lotion bars winging their way to Canada hopefully, as we speak. When I saw the weather was warming up I thought I better get it all mailed out before it was too late.
As for new soap, I am testing these fragrances from Nurture Soap. Out of the bottle, they smell very mild.
In the soap, the fragrance brightens up a bit. This Juicy Apricot is not too bad. After last week's swirling disaster I decided to let gravity do the work for me so I just did an in the pot Clyde Slide. That just means pour all the colors in one bowl, give it a quick stir and then pour it in the mold.
Ditto for Cucumber Melon. It's smells pretty nice and looks pretty good. I know I've said it before but simple is always best. I just need to quit fiddling around with those fancy schmancy techniques and just make soap.
