Here's looking at you Creampuff


by GG.

When I did my first craft fair ever, I met the lovely GG of Creampuff by GG. She loved my pig soap since her signature is a cute little pig and asked me to make some pig soaps for her. We worked together on the scent and I made her a few soaps that she loved. 

However, water soluble paper and I don't work well together and so I suggested we try having a custom made mould instead of GG's mascot. She asked if I would be able to fill in the details and I said of course! So to show her that it's possible, here's the first pig GG saw that drew her to my booth, but set into a frame.

This one is more of the pink that is GG's pig

But this one shows off the details better.

    1. Thanks Teresa! I'm cursing myself though because I thought I'd set this post to be a week later. *banging head against the virtual wall.*

  3. You really are patient! They are lovely. You have a great imagination to get into figurative soaping! I wonder what they smell?...

    1. You're so very kind Madame Propre. Some days I'm more inspired than others, and there are so many interesting soapers out there that I can draw inspiration from. I used GG's signature scent of watermelon and champagne.

  7. My kid would see Peppa Pig here, hehe. I also do.
    I like them both and love how framed they are. Maybe the second 'Peppa' would better stand up on darker background, say chocolate brown.
