Sunday Soap: May Giveaway!

 Before we talk giveaway let me show off last week's new addition to the curing racks. Meet Freesia. I totally goofed up the colors when I forgot to add the cup of white batter I had set aside. I poured it over the top and then pushed it in as an afterthought. I was sure it was going to be a mess but it's not too bad.

This is Papaya Mango and it smells heavenly. I did exactly what I planned as far as coloring it but it still turned out a little strange. Of course. That swirling thing is still a mystery to me. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't it.

 Soon it will be too hot to ship soap without worrying about it melting along the way.

 My April soapmaking binge has left me with quite a few bars that could use rehoming.

This giveaway will be different than the others. It will be for anyone who has never gotten a soap delivery from me and would like one. What I will do is go down the list in order and send off a surprise package when I have things wrapped and ready until the weather gets too brutal. I'll pick the list up if need be when things cool down again come fall with the new autumn scented soap that is going to be made over the summer.

To enter, go to Ravelry (I'm araignee) and send me your mailing details along with any info on allergies. Tell me if you would like to smell like food, fruit, flowers or are more into the earthy thing. I've got lots of really nice bars and cute little samples just waiting for their very own tub. As always, those of you across the pond and our neighbors to the north are more than welcome to participate. I'd wish you good luck but no luck is involved this time around. Everyone's a winner-eventually!


  1. I'm showered this morning using one of your soaps! Hmmm, so silky smooth and fragrant!
    Nice work!

  2. So much fun! I just messaged you. Thanks so much for sharing.

  3. I was so spoiled by you last month I can't join in again. Actually I keep your lotion bar right by my computer to keep my hands happy. You are so kind having these wonderful giveaways.

  4. They are all so pretty! I just LOVE the soap that you gifted me. They last a really long time too!

    You truly have a talent for this soap making thing! :-)

  5. That soap is absolutely gorgeous. You are so sweet to be so generous and give so much away.

  6. I love mine and the lotion bar is healing my dry knees and elbows. Me thinks you've got me hooked. LOL!

  7. Thank you for your generosity!

  8. No soap for me (i'm still lathering up with my Monkey farts!) But if you've got any lotion bars kicking around... could we make another trade?

    1. Sure can. PM me on Ravelry and let me know what you want. I just got a fresh shipment of beeswax and am itching to use it!
