A couple of current projects and some exciting news!

I have been so busy that I didn't even realize it's been over TWO MONTHS since my last post! Here are a couple of projects I've been working on. The first is my homemade soap. I'm a beginner soapier so I am still learning the craft. I was pretty happy with these soaps though! The top pic is red apple (pink and white soap) and Vanilla bean ( brown soap)

This is my sunny herb garden soap

and this is my lilac soap

I have also been working on a few new pieces of Steampunk Jewelry. I had a commission for some  cuff links and tie pin/tack so I made a few more for up coming craft fairs.

And now my news! After working 4 jobs (3 part time) I am quitting my main job and will only be working 3 days a week giving me lots of time to make new things and go to craft shows! I am so excited to slow down and spend more time crafting and painting! I hope to post more often on my blog and to also join more ATC swaps now that I will have more time :O)

Your soap looks great! I especially love vanilla bean... mmmm.... You're so lucky to be getting more creative time. I can't wait to see you creations.

I've dabbled in soap making as well and I must congratulate you on your endeavors. I really need a soap mold, but they are solo expensive! I have used all kinds of things for molds, it would make you laugh..
How exciting for you to get to be able to enjoy mor time doing what you love.
