LOL Mandy - It does sound grand doesn't it!  I was determined that it wasn't 
going to be called the shed - but it is really.  I share it with the unused 
beehive boxes, the boys motorbikes (at feijoa season time), stored family 
furniture, garden pumpkins, etc, etc.  But, I love it, it is 'my' space.  When 
we had it built we had the stained glass window from my Dad's house built into 
the front.  On a sunny day the sun streams through and the colours are magical 
and I get very wistful.

Anyway - when you do your pattycake soaps - how do you ice?  Do you keep some 
of the soap and let it trace a bit more and do you use a sauce bottle to do it? 
 I love the way these soaps look, but they look a bit fiddly for me.  Post a 
pic Mandy, I'd love to see them.

Good luck at the festival - sell heaps!

  Anyone got their soap made yet?  Did I understand Louise that yours is done?

   

  I made mine today - well two versions of the same, sort of.  It's exciting to 
see what they will look like tomorrow.  I love the setting up and organising of 
the jugs, spatulas, spoons, plates, sticks, weighing, melting, stirring, 
pouring, fiddling and final wrapping up of the soap.  I don't enjoy the clean 
up.  I love going to sleep wondering if what I'd imagined I wanted - will be in 
the morning.  I love waking up, having my morning cuppa and heading out to the 
studio to see what my latest creation is - did it work, how will it look, did I 
do a good job, am I happy, will anyone else like it etc. etc.  Such fun!
