The lovely pink is made using POP mica raspberry and I am happy with this colour but again I have previously made a soap with similar colours but used alkanet for colour and I absolutely love that soap...this one smells good too will see how it fairs in a few weeks

Just a few soaps

Well I thought I had better try those POP micas out and obviously didn't use enough for the apple & grape coloured ones but smell great

..I have previously made a similar cp one with GF colours and that one has more colour strangely enough similar colours that one will be in my shop next week

Card I am using is Kanban 300gsm

I get mine on ebay but any craft shop will sell cardstock

All my things together to make little boxes.

what I have been doing today

Well I did a table top sale ..nothing as exciting or profitable as a craft fair or market but I can honestly say that I enjoyed the social side of things and it could possibly lead to a proper craft fair or two..I got loads of compliments about my soaps and even sold a few but I am so pleased to have met contacts.I met a die hard craft fair 'expert' who certainly knows her stuff she gave me loads of ideas of who to get in touch with because every fair that I have tried for here in Devon/Cornwall have been booked up and I know the reason why now is because the crafters as she calls them book up for the next event whilst they are at the craft I think I'm well in with her hahah...anyway the next craft fair could be in May and have given my details to the person who runs it so that's good..I have come back with bags of delicious fudge and home made cakes so my diet has gone out the window for another week all freebies and swaps they were such a friendly bunch in Bude..also the car boots are starting up and there is one just down the road from me and it get packed with holiday makers and the advice given to me was to get a gazebo style tent so that I stand out and not just get lost with the other peeps who sell junk sounds stuck up saying that but you get my meaning.
