Soaps for the Holydays!

A few of our 2011 Christmas Soaps that were poured on All Saints Day:

"Luke 2:12"












"Luke 2:10"
"Matthew 2:2"


"The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light....for unto us a child is born,
to us a son is given;  and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" -Isaiah 9:2,6.

Merry Christmas, soap fans!

I love the contrast of black and white... what scent have they got? xo Jen

Nice, Becky. I love the cut outs. I also like the good black that you got. I made some vanilla soap last night and used charcoal, but it seems very gray to me today :(

The Soap Sister said...

Hi Jen, Hi Ambra! Thanks guys, the "black" is really a dark dark blue-ish....achieved from our old friend Alkanet Root Powder. After all our testing and experimenting, I never did get the "perfect lavender" I longed for, but I DID learn how to make a good "night sky" color! My Alkanet root powder also adds a bit of exfoliation, which I think is nice since many folks use these as hand soaps. Hugs to you both, Becky

Oops, Jen, the scent is a combination of lavender, vanilla & fir. It smells really nice now, but I can't wait to see what it smells like in a month or so. :)

Becky,

These are lovely and I like the scriptures you included as well. Wow, that colour looks black and I see you used Alkanet.

Thanks Michelle, I just find such joy & comfort in the scriptures -especially the Christmas ones. The idea of naming them appropriately "just came to me" ;) About the color, it really does look black, even in person. It's like those navy shoes that look black until you get to work and realize they DON'T match your black pants! :)

Simple and joyful. I love them!!! It's what I would make for me.

Amy Warden said...

Very neat, Becky!! Do you just have one of each then?

The Soap Sister said...

Thanks Nancy, they really got me into the Christmas frame of mind! :)

Hi Amy, Thanks -there are lots of little pieces in the Luke 2:12 ones. I made 11 of those, 4 of the Matthew 2:2, and 3 of the Luke 2:10. However, quite a few have been spoken for already, and I don't have time to make any more. I did do some more "Tannenbaum" soaps yesterday...white trees with dark blue backgrounds as well as a few green trees with white backgrounds. Busy and fun rolled up together!
