Santa In Wreath, soap and trees

Today was a lazy day for me, I did'nt get a lot done, but I did make another Santa head and placed in the wreath in the picture. I made the little letters and attached to the wreath, I think I like it better in a wreath than on a wood bobbin. This pattern will be available on my website in the next day or so.

This was a quick pattern to make up, I made the little trees and stuffed them, then placed a wood bobbin up into the tree for the tree base. I got quite of few of these done. I really like the way they turned out. I grunged them up , then sprinkled some glass glitter on them.

Next, I did get so soap made, I usually use melt and pour and add oatmeal and extras into it. But this time I purchased rebatching soap, which is supposed be real homemade soap (I think). I made several bars, but I think I like working with the melt and pour a lot better. This soap was really thick and not as easy to work with, especially putting into the molds and getting them out.
so, I am not really sure about this soap yet, have more of the other base ordered and guess I will just have to try this, after it sits for a few days and see what I think then.

These soaps are an old saltbox house, Annie doll, and guardian angel.

Can you believe it is almost the end of July. I have only about 2 months left before my first show, I am starting to PANIC now, don't have near enough made for my shows. So hopefully tomorrow will be a very productive day for me. My daughter will be going to the beach and my husband has a run he is running in, so should have several hours to myself tomorrow. yeah, don't get the house to myself that often, and enjoy all the peace and quiet when I do.
