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

Soaps from yesterday

this is more of Scentworks wonderfully fresh  "Yuzu"

my first time to use Scentworks "Pink Sugar"
I like it and can think it will be popular.
it is actually much more yellow than it appears here
AND...a couple of weeks later it is very dark brown and smells mainly of vanilla.
i loooooove it

This is the ever popular "Provence" .
except that this time it is night in Provence and some small stars are out.
well you get the drift !!!!!!  i love to use sago as part of soapmaking.
it is revenge for all those years of being forced to eat it as a child :-)

dog and blue tongue lizard and redback spider

dog was outside (for a change) making a fuss around the side so i figured i knew what the bark meant.!!!
another blue tongue lizard..... which appeared to be  under an old cover in the yard
i got her out of the area but she came back...interested, concerned and a cross between frightened and curious

i carefully took the cover off the ground.... and this is what we had.........what looks like a very  pregnant blue tongue lizard

we left her alone as she was getting very upset and running at son and being somewhat unfriendly.
a short time later son moved some bricks stashed against the fence and there she was.

however the eggs belong as far as i can figure to a red back spider which my son had seen just before.

i had a think about it and decided that given the amount of bricks, the number of eggs inside some other bricks , that i was going to kill them.
i couldnt spray because of the lizard being hurt and the babies being injured when born.
so i did my usual spider thing and got son to stomp on the eggs we could find and i tipped boiling water all around.
however ..........most of the eggs had gone.
the question remains red backs pick up their eggs and move them....or did the blue tongue eat them???
