No more soap sales + being copied

I have discontinued soap sales, at least temporarily. I have had a lot of fun over 18 years making soap and meeting so many other interesting people. Thank you everyone .
Maybe I will get back to it again later, but meanwhile I will be making only for personal use and gifting..

28 October 2017....Unfortunately someone has chosen to copy/paste huge amounts from my old web pages....product information, receipes, soap making methods eg...and place this on the domain name I let go a few months ago. They can buy the domain name but that does not give access to my copyright material or the use of my registered business name.
If you go to that page it is not me you might be dealing with. The person hides behind a "disposable" email address

how i feel


i bought this puppet one day, about 6 months ago, when at the local hospital doing what i had hoped might be some useful rehab work on my balance

the puppet pretty much represents me then.... and now


some plants and trees i have seen


these two plants are in the deck garden of the worlds most beautifully situated cafe where i sometimes go for a great hamburger beside the water...... where the sea planes come in. the prices are amazingly good so if i tell where it is i will have to kill u as i dont want the place over run



this is just a found leaf whose colour appealed to me



a local gum tree with spider web


a gum tree in the local school grounds (and dog)



another couple of trees in the school grounds






a couple of plants on the Great Ocean Road

Some soap i havnt made for ages


but did a bit of last night.......so long since i have used any lemon myrtle i have forgotten that i actually quite like it.
the fragrance is a mix of lemon myrtle/orange /lavender/patchouli/rose .
i threw a bit of gold mica on the violet chunks but it is not very obvious really.
rough cut soap and not cleaned up as yet

Aussies travelling



for as long as i can remember Aussies have been on the move.
i did a bit of my own moving in my time too !!
a number of my family seem to like the travel and the latest to go adventuring is one of my nephews who has kindly allowed me to share his adventures.

it seems like it is thirsty work climbing down the canyon and it also seems that they find USA beer very thrist quenching


standing on the edge ...just a bit ...he of the blue T shirt



here he is on Half Dome in Yosemite......it scares me just to look at the drop down, there. He is the one sitting

a bit of soap

this soap will always be my favourite.......plain unfragranced castile with some calendula flowers, which i made for a lady who likes to use it as a face soap. i use it as a shower soap all the time and just loooooooooove it



just a few soap logs i made a while ago for some customers who wanted to cut them themslves in sizes to suit for shower and guest soap
