A big bunch of new soaps

These bars were done a few weeks ago, but just gettin around to posting and taking advantage of a couple hours of quiet time.  I've been storing the cut bars under a fan in hopes of speeding up the cure; it seems to be helping.  It's very hot here right now (92 today!) so they are in the coolest room of the house as well.  It's been about 3-4 weeks since these were all cut, and one more week should do it.

"Mystify"
Into the Wild from MMS and midnight blue mica

"Watercolors"
Elements of Bamboo from MMS,
pre-mixed mica/glycerin from TKB Trading Co.

"Riptide"
(Oceania from MMS and oxides)

"Raspberry Lemonade"
from WSP is really strong and snappy
I took a vacation day on my birthday and did 4 more big batches (see below).  Hubby took me to dinner, then ice cream with a walk in the park at dusk.  Amazingly, we ended the evening by stumbling upon a tribal style drum circle in the park - what an experience!  I swear, one of the best things about my husband is you never know where the day will lead when we head out with a little free time together.  That was one birthday that will go down in our book for most original ending, hands down!
