Whats buzzing in Arie'ls Secret Garden!

We have a new soap mold here thats getting lots of use. As we make our batches of soap we more often than not have extra left over that will not fit into our log molds. This extra soap is then poured into our new mold that has butterflies, bee's and lady bugs.Then these little cute critters will make their way into our Etsy orders as free bees hehe pardon the pun. We may also be offering them in sets later on this summer!

In the pot!

Candy Girl is our "PINK SUGAR" dupe!

Soaping Candy Girl!

Here we are getting ready to soap an Olive oil blend soap batch scented in Candy Girl. All of my ingredients are together now I just need to line my mold with freezer paper then mix my lye with my goats milk...very slowly a little bit at a time!

3 Pound soap loaves!

Here's what we've been up to, these are some pictures of our 3# soap loaves that are for some of our Etsy customers. These soap logs have already been cut up into 9 1 inch thick bars. Most of these logs will be shipped out today and tomorrow, we have one more soap loaf order to complete and then we will finally be cought up lol!

Update on our Etsy shop & Blog!

We will be blogging again soon and our Etsy shop will be open in about a week. I have taken lots of pic's for you all to see from beautiful Arkansas but have not been able to down load because our usb cord is packed away still. I have been slowly unpacking the soaping supplies and gearing up to soap starting next week. I will of course keep you all posted on our new batches of soap. I hope to be soaping "Disco Doll" and "Sugar Bubbles" as well as a few other new scents. We will be discontinuing a few of our scents like Baby powder, Karma, Champage Snow showers and Boogie man.

We still need to work on our Blog settings for the comments that are still down.

We will be restocking Bubble bars Bath salts and Bath bombs in the next couple days. Lotion bars will be restocked after summer, and resin jewelry will be restocked as we reopen.

With our new home here in Arkansas I am getting inspired by all the beautiful things to see and do around here, so alot of that will surely come through in our soapies. My Grandmother was born and raised here, we have alot of family here both on my side of the family and my husbands. Its nice to be in a place were I know my Grandmother spent such a big part of here life.

Thanks to all that have been keepin up with our little blog, I will be posting more Pocket Possitives as soon as I can find were I packed my little book. Thanks again!=]

Two more batches!

Moving , packing and soaping, thats what I have planned for today. My house looks as if a very large tornado has hit it lol but we are starting to see the light of day =]. I have two large custome soap batchs that I have to make and ship out just before we make our journey to Arkansas. My hubby has made the first trip out there with the horse trailer filled to the gills with horsey stuff, corrals, feed, dog kennels ect. He will be back today and help us pack the rest of our goodies so that we can make our move in about 1 week. I was so hoping to get alot more done before my husbands gets home so that he can just relaxe but eeek so much to do so little time!=]
