Ok, it's very comfortable when you just approach your stock rack and pick up a slice of a small, smelling goodie. You choose the one which reflect your mood at the moment and you get a fine, bubbly, skin loving bath, without worrying about skin sensitivities, the ingredients list, or the price.
Yes, that's valuable!
But, beyond of making soap lies a pleasure, not less divine!
1.You make friends- (that's invaluable)
2.Your friends also make soap - (you discuss (not only) soap)
3.They run contests and giveaways- (that's fun)
--- You win the contests and get prizes! ---
If you have never gotten any lottery game, make soap- your chances increase rapidly!
At least, that's my case! It's not that I take part into every contest that I see around, but even better, I don't and still get the prizes!
Needless to say how thrilled I was when saw that Slivia was running this interesting contest with a covetable prize! Wow....STAMPS.....something I was planning to have made, but at the time, I didn't have my original, customly made logo, nor did I have an idea who could make the stamps for me!
But, I still wanted this prize!
And I WON!
After a little roam through designers' works, I finally had one, willing to make the logo at very reasonable price. Warren from Drawingboard Inc. was super cooperative, super helpful and super creative and my part of job was piece of cake here. (Thanks again,Warren). The guy just looked my pages and in few days he came up with three different designs. From there, everything was just a technical matter. Guess what? Silvia was the one who I need to thank to again. She was the connection between me and the designer!
OK, so I was gonna have the Philippinean logo and stamp! That already sounded exotic!
So, now you all know how my logo looks like and my stamps arrived some time ago, having traveled across the half of the world, they landed safely into my hands! And I'm loving them. I won one stamp and got two, instead. Isn't that too generous from Silvia? And as an extra work she had the handles made also!
So perfectly done and so much alike her- neat, clean and adorable! I need to say that her perfectionist's spirit never gave up on insisting on a perfect impression of the stamp and the final one was accepted by her, after discarding one.
After a few days upon receiving, I made the pine tar soap and it was ugly enough to be my 'experimental mouse'.
|looks good to me|
I just hope I will learn how to work with them without having many soaps ruined.
Thanks Silvia for this happiness, you probably saved me preciuos time and effort in finding a stamp maker and did all the job on my behalf !
