Soap Peeps

I recently came across a very cute post of Melt and Pour Soap Peeps from Soap Deli News Blog.  I thought it was the cutest soaps and I read that she found the mold at a local Target Store.  Well I just could not wait for my lunch hour so that I can escape and go purchase it.   Unfortunately work got  a little crazy and I was not able to go out for lunch.

I was desperate!  so I called in a "life line"...my husband!  I texted him a picture of the mold and sent him off to look for it during his lunch hour.  





Isn't it the cutest mold!  

He bought me two.  One to use for soap and the other one to attempt to bake something in it...yeah right :)

Here are my little peeps!





Once again I got a little carried away with my pink and blue.  They turned out a little darker than I wanted  but my yellow is perfect!!!




I also have some exciting news to share.  I will be moving my blog to a new home very soon.  I decided to obtain my domain name (website name) and I am in the process of building my blog template.

Why did I decided to do this?...well, I guess I just felt that I needed more punishment and a little frustration in my life may not be so bad!  LOL

I tell you,  I am learning so much!!!  I am trying to build it in Wordpress and it's not easy!  I have been pretty consumed and I would think a little bit obsessed in trying to figure out how to set it up.  Cee Gee will confirm that I have gone a little nutty and would send desperate emails in the middle of the night asking over and over again "WHAT WAS I THINKING?!!!", and like a good friend she has calmed me down and very gently pushed me back to my madness :)

She has encouraged me to write a blog about it, and I am really considering it.  It sure has been interesting for sure!!!

But never fear, I continue to sneak in some soaps here and there and I recently made a new batch that I hope to display before I unveil my new page.  In the mean time...

Thanks for checking out my blog!!!
HAPPY SOAPING!
Roxana

  3. Oh my goodness, what adorable peeps! I couldn't tell what they were at first from the package but your soaps turned out perfectly! Good to see that the hubby can be a saviour in getting you your soaping supplies. :D

    I do hope you will blog about your website move. Websites developing is a huge undertaking, so good for you for doing so. I'm hoping that you've worked out all your kinks and you're happily work in with Wordpress now. Cee is an absolute doll for being such a fantastic friend and she does have that calming effect doesn't she?

  6. Those little duckies are adorable! Your husband is so sweet to go out searching for the molds for you.

    I am excited about your new website! It's funny how many of us are forced to learn things we probably wouldn't have done if not for our soap obsession.

  7. Your Peeps are so cute! I recently built a website and blog using wordpress. Once you get used to it, it really is not so bad. Quite easy actually, and I know you will enjoy the learning process.

    1. Thanks Darlene! I must say that I am actually enjoying it. As frustrating as it can be I am also finding it quite entertaining. I am struggling with finding a good plug in to use so that I can display the blogs that I follow

  9. Hi Pam! the brand is Chicago Metallic and we found it at Target where all of the Easter cooking and candy merchandise is displayed. I hope you are able to find it! :)

  11. I've seen people using these cuties, but I myself haven't happened to find them. They are prefect kids' bait, but the adults cannot resist either!
    Can't wait to seeing your new blog!
