Last week, I had mentioned I would be meeting up with GG, maker of Creampuff by GG to discuss the Creampuff soap line. We'd been corresponding off and on since last year around Christmas but things being what they are, we never did meet up until now. She said she'd be the one wearing a pink flower on her jacket and I said I'd be the one in a white overcoat looking bewildered. I don't remember her flower but I guess my bewildered look gave me away.
As I thought, she was even more wonderful in person than via email. We talked for several hours and could've talked for several more if I didn't have other pressing engagements. We had already agreed that I would make her soaps using her piggy on soluble paper on goat's milk soap. The main point of the discussion then was what scent should the soaps be?
My dear sister suggested two scents I don't have, so we had to make do with what I do have. After sniffing all the fragrances I had brought along with me, GG came up with the idea of combining scents. I know this isn't a new idea but it's something I hadn't done before. Long story short, we've come up with a scent all her own; a combination of watermelon and champagne. The watermelon gives it a light, happy scent while the champagne provides an undertone of fizzy sophistication and the combination just makes you smile. I can't wait to get started working on the soaps.
This coming week I'll be sending the 425 alphabet letters home with Leanne from Little Dreambug.
