very nice post, i certainly love this website, keep on it

With melt & pour soaps, a quick spritz with rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle will get rid of the bubbles without hurting the soap. Just spritz it right after pouring.

oh...BTW. Your Whistlestop train car was called a caboose when attached to the end of the train. I love caboose. I always wanted to buy one and put it in my backyard...only a dream...not going to happen

I love the flower pens. They have some at my eye doctor's office in a dish. The patient's use them to sign the register. They are nearly as pretty as yours.

your soaps are merveillous
and it's make by yourself

Those are just beautiful. I am really impressed with them. Thank you for sharing how to do that. I always wondered how people could do that.

Yes, you are certainly multi-talented. I think your blog name reflects that perfectly. Thanks for bringing me over from Flying Lessons. You can check out my blog here:

Hi, Lisa! I'm a fellow flyer and wanted to say hi. Your blog is beautiful. Gorgeous soap!

Have a creative day.

Love these, Lisa...such elegant designs and beautiful finished presentation. I went on a soap-making binge during the holidays last year, but this project gets me wanting to pull all the supplies back out again!

P.S. Love the blog. :) Nice to find another creative spirit that enjoys working in so many different mediums. I'll be sure to check back soon.

What a great idea! I love your site and have you in my google reader now. I think I'll be making some of these with lavender with our garden to take back to family in the US when I go home for a visit.

Hi Lisa, from one fellow flyer to another, thanks for stopping by my blog! I have always wondered how to make homemade soaps -- I love your tutorial and will try it out! Oh & congrats on RM -- one of my all-time favorite mags!

congrats on the RH article...woo hoo..i am stopping by from flying lessons...so glad to connect...


What a beautiful idea...

I have wanted to make some pretty soaps and tried and failed once before... this is so simple and easy I think I can actually do it...

Thank you for sharing..

I also love the packaging as much as the lovely soap itself!

You always inspire me with your fabulous creations...


Oh my gosh, Lisa! You are one talented ladie... I LOVE the soap, very beautiful!

Beautiful post and article in RH! I often buy that mag and when I saw your soap article, in the cart it went for sure! Thanks for the great tutorial here! As always your blog post are so well done!

Congrats Lisa!!! The soaps are beautiful.

Wonderful!!! Love the soap and seeing you in Romantic Homes...my favorite magazine!

Another project I will have to try! What a great idea for teacher's gifts.

Hi Lisa!!

You are amazing!! To me it seems like there is no project you can`t do well. And I love how you explain everything so precisely step by step. That helps enormously if you want to have a try yourself. Thank you for that. The soaps came out so lovely!! And you display them so beautifully. I wouldn`t even know where to look for these ingredients, but I am tempted to have a go myself. I love soaps that are 100% vegetable, they don`t irritate my skin. Lavender is my favourite :)

Congratulations on being featured in the issue of Romantic Homes magazine!! It must be incredibly exciting to see your pretty soap project and photos in this beautiful magazine. I am glad they have noticed you and your projects, you always do it so well.

And thank you for dropping by my blog as well! It was so nice to hear from you :) I haven`t been so very good in visiting others lately, since we moved back to Norway I have been more focused with my family and my own projects, and it takes more of my time.

I hope you are well and happy. Isn`t it great with summer?? I love this season :)


I never, ever thought about making soap before...but now I am. Congrats on the publication, I will make a point to look for the magazine. Another great post!

Lisa- I saw your article in RM and am so excited for you. These soaps rock! Congrats!!

Absolutely beautiful. Congrats on Romantic Homes!

Oh, I'm so glad you commented so I found you. I just love your blog! I knew I recognized that soap. And then you said it was in Romantic Homes. My blog is featured in there this month, and I remember I dog-eared that soap article to try. I've never made soap before. It's so beautiful! I hope I don't make a complete mess.

Chick, is there ANYTHING that you do NOT do?!?!?! You have reported the news; scrapbooked; sewn, and now, you are making soap! This is beautiful.

Love ya!

Beautifully done Lisa! Congrats on the feature!

Gorgeous Lisa - I love Romantic Homes, congrats on your beautiful project being featured!

What a fun project Lisa -- I LOVE that pretty crown mold -- thanks for including your source!

How beautiful--as always. Congrats on yet another magazine spread!

Hermoso, me encantan todos tus trabajos. Mil Felicitaciones, tienes una creatividad unica.
Saludos !!!

Yummy soaps!! I can not wait to get my copy of this magazine!! XXOO, Damaris

Oh soap making is fun! I love how you dressed them up for gift giving! And congratulations on them being published in such a beautiful magazine!

Lovely post. I'm thinking about making some fun soaps. This post is right on target.

Your presentation is always the most impressive for me. You are so creatively gifted in wrapping or packaging your gifts. I want to be like you when I grow up! LOL!

I've created my new blog. Come check me out when you have a chance.
Keep up the good work!

I've always wanted to make home made soap. I do buy it but what nice gifts it would make to be made by me. Thank you for sharing. You always dress things up so pretty.
