|Thinking of Spring, this soap cake smells so beautiful-too bad I can't remember how I created the scent.|
|I don't usually make melt and pour soaps but these were fun to make.|

|This soap cake is called "Not your Mommas' Gingerbread" soap. It smells of gingerbread with a little added spice.|
|You can't tell how pretty Santa Cake soap really is in this picture. Smells so good!|
|I love the look of this soap. I haven't named it yet.|
|Christmas Tree soaps ready for their bows.|
|Relax me Lavender cupcake soaps-just what the stressed- out holiday shopper needs!|
|LOVE these little favor boxes (I got them on clearance) and am using them for my lotion bars.|
|Pure Luxury Solid Lotion Bar-so moisturizing on dry skin!|
|Small sized solid lotion bar.|
I hope tomorrows' weather that is calling for snow will not keep the shoppers away for the Grosse Pointe Holiday Tree lighting and market. I hope you can make it tomorrow or for our last show on December 3rd at Parcells middle school in Grosse Pointe. If not, drop me an email, say HI- keep in touch. If there is something you'd like to order from us, please email me and we will deliver it to you by mail or in person.Thank you for being such great customers!!! Bernadette

This soap cake is the result of too much left over soap and I had to use it up in a hurry. I was messing around with different decorator tips because there are quite a few of them that I don't know what they do. I was also practicing with making soap roses. Those are irritating to do when you have gloves on and it takes a lot of patience and re-doing, re-doing! I still don't have them perfect yet. But I will. Couldn't you see this soap cake at a bridal shower or a tea party? Give a slice to each guest to take home and wrap it up in pretty paper. This size cake will yield eight good sized slices.
We will be at Beacon Tree Elementary school this Friday. It is on Schoenherr rd. between 25 and 26 mile rds. starting at 5:30 to 9:30pm. Then on Saturday, we have Eisenhower High school which is a big one. It is located on 25 mile rd. I hope to see you there. I have been getting all my holiday soaps ready for it! I'm also kind of nervous about the Eisenhower one because I know how busy it gets. I hope I get a good spot. Have a great day!

|From left is my sister Cathy, my Mother, MaryJane who is checking her raffle tickets for the baskets in the background, and my daughter Janelle|
|And guess what I won- just what I need- the Death by Chocolate basket!! Just enough to fatten me up for this winters hibernation!|
I was shocked that I won that basket full of chocolate because I usually don't win anything. Then my daughter, Janelle won this huge bottle of wine basket with cookies. My Mom won an apron and a beautiful hand knitted afghan too. My sister Cathy didn't win anything but she is very lucky at the casino.
When I got home, my hubby, and sons Nick & Nathan tore into that chocolate, each claiming "this is mine". I guess I don't have to worry about my fat-eating winter hibernation food. It will be gone before Halloween.(OH NO Halloween candy!)
Have a great week and don't forget to pick up your candy for the trick or treaters.

|These are not shower favors. They remind me of something you'd see in Who ville from the Grinch.They are mini cupcake soaps with a plastic xmas light on top and scented with vanilla & blueberry cobbler|
|These cute mini cupcake soaps are for a baby shower. The father is a Lions' football fan and wanted their colors. The added football bead gives it an extra sporty touch.|
|This beautiful cupcake soap is a prototype for a bridal tea that will be in the Spring at a Victorian tea house.|
|This is a prototype for another bridal shower that wanted mini cupcake soaps.|
Do you have your pumpkins yet? This looks like a nice fall day to go to the cider mill, get some apples, cider, pumpkins to put out for Halloween and bake those pumpkin seeds. My kids love the pumpkin seeds. You can season them with garlic and sea salt, so many other combinations of seasonings that make them awesome to munch on. So enjoy your day now before winter hits.

|Our soap display at the Clarkston High craft show|
So many people think it's real cupcakes and sweets
|Trying to get Bear to look at the camera before his walk|
He just wanted to get going!
|Bear is about 90lbs and has about another 80 lbs to go. I ordered|
him a grim reaper that rides on his back costume for halloween.
He's going to look so funny.

|These black cherry cupcakes are smaller than the average that I make. The mini is on the left (I bet you figured that out)|
|This is a regular size cupcake soap. It fills the palm of you hand.|
|These mini cupcakes are on the small side too.|
|This lilac soap cake slice is an average slice and fits in the palm of your hand too.|
|Three different sizes of soap cake. The smallest is on the left|
|You can see the height difference|
|This is the small cake slice and is not that much more than the mini cupcake soap|
Everyday is a gift from God- Treasure it- make it count- make a difference- bring a little joy to someone
