This soap was inspired by our Monsoon season and the spectacular sunsets we have after our summer storms! The star has some gold glitter in it but I couldn’t get the sun to shine through the soap to get the sparkle visible.
I enjoyed creating this soap and it reminds me a lot of several cities I’ve lived in – Brisbane, which also had great summer storms and sunsets; Calgary with the Northern Lights flashing through the sky (especially when I visited Edmonton and Jasper NP through the summer months), Dallas which had some of the best sunsets and storms I’ve ever seen (although I hated hearing my weather radio alert especially in the early hours of the morning with weather warnings) and then the sunsets we get in Phoenix, which have lots of violet, peach and pinks in them and a if touch of gold that lines the bottom of the clouds (that I tried to replicate with a gold mica vein) during the summer.
As for a ‘life update’ – I’m currently six months pregnant, the baby is getting bigger and I’m sure going to be a soccer player! The parents (I’m a surrogate for anyone who didn’t read my previous blogs) where thrilled to find out last month they are having a baby girl 🙂
I’m hoping to make some type of baby friendly soap in the next few months, maybe a carrot and honey, goat milk type soap (open to suggestions!) for the parents and little baby girl for a ‘birth day’ present for them 🙂
Hope Spring is bringing some warm weather to soapers in the mid west and east coast. I’m looking forward to the warmer weather for soaping (as I find it easier to soap in warmer temps) but I’m not looking forward to being 9 months pregnant in July in 110 degree temps!
Take Care everyone!!
