New Hobbies

I have been thoroughly enjoying my time off from my shop.  It has been much needed in helping to refresh my creative spirit.  

It's been a good month or so since I put my shop into vacation mode, and I am just starting to feel like drawing again.  Along side of that, it's been nice having time to dedicate to new projects.  

First project I've started is soap!  Just Melt and Pour style for now, but I'm feeling brave enough to try Cold Process next.    I fell in love with one bar I made out of Honey and Goat Milk bases.  I liked it so much, that I made a couple extra bars to send to my folks as gifts.  
Of course, I wanted it to look perfect, so I decided to create a little character to go along with the label.

I was so inspired by how it all turned out, that I continued to do more little vintage ladies for soaps in the future.
