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..

the new new camera

i got pinged off with Panasonic over my camera purchase a few months ago ..... a long silly story really ......... but i downgraded a model which means nothing except that i dont have the you beaut HD video. that is ok because it was/is a total bore to use and needs converting with software i havnt a clue how to understand

anyway to test out the downgraded model i had to take pics of dog tonight...of course.
the camera is marginally different and i need to sort a few things out to get better macro shots
