soap transformations....

over the years I have had a few soaps undergo design changes. Sometimes you think you've hit the right look yet after awhile that soap can start to look drab. My designer self is always finding ways to give more punch to the appearance of soaps.

 

lets look at Honey....

started with this...                                                     and... pretty but the mica on top gets all over everything.

finally now this.

Lavender...

                      is another one...                                                                 to this, sorry about the small image!

and finally this.

 

Cranberry Yuzu...

what was I thinking...
now much better...

relaxing blues...

nice layers                                                       but this is easier to do.

Well, the business all started with this...

My love for goats morphed into an obsession with soapmaking. With all that rich, creamy milk I had to find somewhere to put it. So while raising a registered goat herd of Alpine, Nigerian Dwarfs and other assorted breeds, my true passion was developed. It's now been about 12 years since those first few bars were made and with time many changes in the soaps have evolved. Sort of piled up one after another, kind of like this...



oh my goodness, why can't time stand still for a bit...

I really love frogs and wanted to share a couple of very interesting sites for those living in Canada. Amphibians and Reptiles of Canada  and Frogwatch. Lots of information on distribution, habitat and conservation.

Pacific Treefrog

and again.
