The Elusive Butterfly

 This month I took part once again in a soapmaking challenge hosted by Amy of Great Cakes Soapworks.  This month's challenge was the Butterfly Swirl.  I was excited to learn this advanced swirl technique.  I love to use color and design in our soaps, and this technique make such pretty soaps.  Go to the link above and see the winning soaps.  They are stunning!

I made two batches, trying to find a butterfly. But I never did.  I don't consider these soaps as failures though.  They are beautiful!  And I will keep trying.

I made 4 logs of soap this day.  And then I had to rush off to work.  So my sweet husband did all the dishes for me!
