Workshops, work spaces and beautiful soaps

This weekend I held a soap workshop at the farm. I was so busy making soap and talking that I didn't take and photos of the soapy creations - very clever.

Anyway I have pictures of my soaping work area and the beautiful soap I made this weekend. I LOVE the Mantra swirl and for the first time I had some extra hands to help me hold the divider. This made such a difference and I think the soap turned out really well. Thanks for your help Michelle.

Photoscape - for lovely pictures

I love to take photographs of my products and everything around me. I don't always get the exposure or white balance correct so sometimes I need a little help. Photoscape is the perfect FREE tool to help with all your photo worries.

You can make any picture look great and it has the most amazing frames.

Hand made Rose Soap

I love creating soaps but I think my most favourite are the ones that have home -grown ingredients like my rose soap that has roses from my garden
