TwitPix is sending what I post here to my journal. Pretty cool, but I need to figure out how to make the text more helpful.

 I'm working on putting together visuals for my talks on color at the Handcrafted Soapmaker's Guild annual conference in May in Miami.  

These are today's sample batches -  Clockwise from top - an example of a triadic color scheme with no scent; natural color from the herb yellow dock with a white floral scent; sample of a new Annabella & Co. soap called Sulis, scented with clary sage and lavender in honor of the Goddess of the city of Bath.

It's time for some Spring Cleaning and I decided to make up a fresh batch of surface cleaning spray.  A surfactant, some borax, and blood orange essential oil.  Works like a charm and it smells great around here.

Absolutely!  I've been out of the loop too long!  It will be good to keep up on what's happening in the soap world.

 It is amazing how much variety there is in soap color without added color.  And how much the color changes when one oil is changed.

Sides of the small soap logs, four different formulas.

These soaps are so beautiful. They are a study in marbling. They are part of a series of one-off batches from the Sheddio studio sessions. Gorgeous.

I'm trying to get the Annabella Blog, Annabella and Company Facebook page and Flickr all connected. But I don't want to spam the fans!

So, this post is supposed to stay just on LiveJournal and not go to Facebook. Here we go...
