Sexy apron day ideas!

I am always looking for new designs to make my own aprons, silly as it sounds, but I go through a lot.  Making soap is a messy business and for safety reasons you need to cover up well.  I found a wonderful blog with 54 different apron designs to sew yourself!!  How crazy is that?  So I thought I would share it with you.

Hmmm these two are lovely but there are lots more ideas listed here:

Its a great blog, lots of other fantastic "make yourself" ideas, so if you are a bit bored and want some blog trawling fun (and dont we all sometimes?) then I reccommend this one.  Do let me know what you think and if you tried any.  I'm going for the overall look next time!

Happy sewing XX

Yes, finally its on line.  I have been working hard to put together a new Press Pack information button on my website - here is the link

Click on this button (top of the page under the main heading logo) to download any of the press information sent out recently.  I will be updating this on a regular basis so if you want to find out more about my products or future ideas this is a good place to start.  Well, following this blog is actually the best way as I always make sure you know everything first of course.  Keep on watching..............

Its sad, Im like a little kid today, finally got my new categories up on the website and I am really happy with the way they look, the photography is not the best because I did the pictures not Nigel.  I was so keen to get the Valentine soaps up quickly that I just went ahead.  Ive got a photo shoot coming up soon so I hope to have more professional pictures then.  I also have a lot more cupcakes to show you all.  My favourites are the wedding ones and the chocolate orange - mmmmm  so yummy they are going to be hard to resist biting into.  What do you all think?  have you got any good ideas for cupcake varieties? if so let me know.


Watch this space - very shortly I will be launching my new Valentine range of soaps and my very special new Cupcake range of soaps.  You won't believe your eyes I promise you.

Ive been doing a bit of research for both my new soap range as well as body butters and products using Shea Butter, all going very well, more tomorrow.  During this I came across this new gadget for my blog, it will probably drive me and all of you mad, but I thought it was fun at the time - perhaps I was getting bored?  who can tell.  Anyway, let me know what you think of it.................

Thanks to Nigel for the picture of Soapchick X

Due to a fantastic Christmas and New Year with lots of sales and lots of fantastic comments (thanks to everyone) some ranges are now sold out.  These are being replaced as fast as possible but as Cold Process soap takes 4 weeks to cure and I would not safely sell my soap any sooner than this, there may be some delays in any orders made in the next couple of weeks.  I have indicated on the website when new stocks will be available for shipping but basically it looks like this at the moment:-

Bridge Inn Beer Bar - available again from 20th Jan
Lavender - available again from 20th Jan
Rose - Available again from 20th Jan
Citrus Sorbet - Available again from 27th Jan

VERY LOW STOCKS (less than 10 bars available)
Goats Milk, Honey and Oatmeal
Goats Milk & Ylang Ylang
Dirty Dog

Christmas Spice Cake
Snowballs in a snowdrift
Mini Mince Pies
Mini Xmas Puds
(all the above soon to be replaced with new Spring and Easter ranges - keep watching)
Limited Edition Flower Power Range - I am currently designing a really exciting new range which will be available soon.

Thanks for your support during 2009, you have made it a year to remember for me.  I have so many plans for 2010 that I cant wait to share with you, not quite yet though, keep watching.................
