I thought I was at an age where I didn't care anymore what others did or thought. Obviously I'm wrong. On the Shout out to Melt & Pour Facebook group, everyone's been gearing up for Valentine's. Hearts abound, hearts galore, beautiful uses of hearts and wonderful creations. Okay, I think to myself, I'll join in the fun, I'll do some Valentine's themed soaps as well.
First, I took a bunch of leftover soaps to make the hearts, then I made a loaf and two individual guest soaps. Inevitably, the idea in my head is better than what comes out, and the real product is better than what the picture shows. In case you're wondering why the ones in the loaves don't look like hearts from the angle the picture is taken, it's because they're tilted on their sides. They're a little off, like their owner.
|Coffee heart because coffee = love|
|I call this one elusive heart|
|I don't know why, but my loaves, before I cut them, always reminds me of rowing. I't's not like I have ever been on a rowing team.|
|The whole fam family of hearts|
Ideally I would've been making Chinese New Year themed soaps instead of Valentine's soaps, but I don't have that adorable sheep mould yet. Maybe in another 12 years I'll get around to it.
Have a great week!
