Quite tired tonight.. I have been more worried about my little rat Shoshana than I thought. Here she is, face tucked into blankie, bandaged & healing up.
I have sort of been on hiatus from making soap because I have had some other pressing deadlines in the vein of photography. I did get a piece in a show "Florida State Parks on View" at the Kimbell Center at Jonathan Dickenson State Park here in Florida. Here we both are:
And here is a slice of last night's soap loaf, the first one I have made in a while. My first attempt at a swirl, ever. I didn't use colorants when I divided the soap batter- I just used one fragrance oil that I know discolors. I kind of wanted to test how much the discoloration will bleed into the other portion, if at all. Anyway, here it is on day 1 (no real discoloration showing yet):
Soap making is taking a back seat right now while I work on other things, but I just have so much fun doing it. It's a lot like making baked goods, except you can mail it. Well, I'm off to pack up for the Land of Nod- say some prayers for my sweet little beastie, please? :-D
