"if you want to see the rainbow you have to deal with the rain."
And the way I have been dealing with the rain is through my new-found hobby... soapmaking.
While I was tinkering with the thought for this year's Christmas gift to my sphere of influence, I said to myself, "What could be a better gift nowadays but soap." With some research and you tube viewings, I started molding basic rectangular soap with essential oil in October. I finished almost 100 packages to be mailed before the month of November ended.
From rectangular bars, I experimented on various designs and techniques as shown below. This year, my gifts to my friends and neighbors are my handcrafted deliciously scented bars of soap.
