Best Gift Ever!

And this time, I don't even mean our soaps, though it is soap related.

Last night, I got together with my family for the first night of Chanukah to eat brisket sandwiches, latkes (potato pancakes), and exchange gifts.

My sister and brother-in-law got a terrific gift for me and Eric!  We are now the proud owner of a whole slew of hand-sculpted soap molds from Milky Way Molds!  We had been intending to try cold process soaps - all of our current varieties have been done via the hot process method - and now we can make fancy cold process soaps in gorgeous molds.  I'm so excited to get to it immediately after the hot process batch we already had planned for today.

Cold process soaps take much longer to cure, 6 - 8 weeks, so don't expect to see them on the site just yet.

But, they also got us two stamps for our soaps, a curled cat to go with our Reef cat logo, and a paw print!

Those can be imprinted into our hot process soaps as long as we cut them while they're still fairly soft.  You can, therefore, expect to see our new soaps with their logo imprints very soon.

Plus, if today's batch is successful, you can expect to see something pretty funky on the site pretty soon.  And that's all I'm going to say about that.

Thanks! We love that he kinda looks like Reef - the original. And happy holidays to you too!
