Hmmm.. Blogger issues?

Anyone else having any Blogger issues? It seems my latest post is the only one that shows on the page, you have to click "Older Posts" to get the rest of them.  Me no likee! Is this happening to me or everyone? And how do I fix it? HELP!

ETA: Ok I'm the stoopido! I just changed the size of one of the images on the blog and, bingo, it's all back!

It's a D'oh kinda day.

Just a quickie to say that Lori from A Life Deliberate Soap Company is having a giveaway! You can check out all the details on her You Tube video below (or, for those who subscribe by email, click on the link).

I love love love love love her soaps and I'd pretty much kill (or certainly maim) any one of you to get my hands on these! I'd be like the desperate bridesmaid when the bride throws the bouquet!!!

Check them out, Lori's fabulous soaps and her generous giveaway:

Make sure to check out Lori's Facebook Page and her Blog and her Etsy Store.

Another mention and a new soaper!

I just wanted to show you a video from a very new soaper based in Dublin, Ireland.  Amanda can be officially called a soap addict now ... she's gone from being a customer to making her own soaps and it's so fun to watch her spiral upwards to the heights of soap addictness!  And, whooo hoooo, I'm famous cos I got a mention at the beginning! LOL.

Here's her first video of her very first two soap making adventures... I wish I had the idea to video my first soaps, you always have a memory of them then!

Best of luck Amanda and I can confirm, you are now a soap addict!!!

Ohh... I'm in a video!!

I sent some of my soaps to Julia from during the summer and she wrote a wonderful review of them, I was more than happy with it (thanks Julia!).

Yesterday, I found she'd made a whole video with all the soaps and soapers she's reviewed and mine are in there .. and, guess what? She called me the Queen of Swirl! How cool is that?!

Check out the video below (for those who receive the blog posts by email, you won't be able to see the video but you can check it out on her blog, right here

Julia, thanks SO much, you made my day! And to be included with so other fabulous soapers, well it's a pleasure and an honour.

Silence, Sadness & Retail Therapy

I have to say a huge sorry for being so quiet on the blog lately... I've not been soaping for a while, I seem to be going through some sort of soaping block at the moment, plus I've been trying to get things made for Christmas but not fairing very well on that front at present.

Also, if you are a reader on our Facebook page, you may know that, last week, my Mother in Law passed away very suddenly.  I don't think the shock has worn off yet and we're travelling to London for the funeral later this week.  It's knocked us for six I have to say, and hubby has been back to London to make arrangements.

Due to all of this, I felt the need to cheer myself up a little and did a small bit of retail therapy this evening... I can't spring for a Kitchen Aid or a Kenwood mixer but got the next best thing which is...

It's 400 watts of power with nice long mixer whisky things ... and it's red, me loves it!! 

So I'm going to try and get back to posting but we need to move through this week and start to heal.

Cute or what?

I just made this... isn't it cute or what?  And no, it's not a subtle marketing message at all, is it? Hehehe!

And if the message works, check out!

On the Curing Rack

Sorry it's been so quiet round here lately... I've been busy getting things ready for Christmas gift bags and .. well, not a lot else really.  I've just been kind of tired and a bit grumpy lately so, when I get like that, I tend to keep my head down and stay quiet. 

Anyway, I decided it was definitely time to do a video cos I've not done one in an age.  So I made this today, all my myself (you'll probably notice that, nowhere near as good as when Titch or Malcolm helps out!) and it's all about the soaps currently on the Curing Rack.  Now, I usually leave all the soaps on the rack til they're ordered and I only wrap when ordered ... not sure why, I just started that way and kept doing it. 

So I thought you'd like to see the video ... here are all my soaps on the curing rack.. enjoy!!

I know the video doesn't show in the email version of the blog so here is the link for you to watch as well

Hope you enjoy the video and maybe we'll see you at !
