Up Late

I’m up late again… bad me. That’s what not having a “day job” does to me — I don’t get up early except on the weekends (how’s that for backwards?) and I stay up late. On the weekends I have to be down at the market by 7:30 am on Saturdays and 8:30 on Sundays (or else be set up by 11 on Sundays, depending…)

Anyway, what else would I be doing this late but making soap? *grin* I can’t believe I waited so long to try out hot process. I absolutely LOVE it. There are things I can’t do with it that I can with cold process (really smooth soap, swirls) but having usable soap THE SAME DAY is nothing short of miraculous. Being able to use fragrance and essential oils that aren’t compatible with cold process opens up an entire scent library to me — I’ve wasted POUNDS of soap discovering that certain scents just WILL NOT play nicely in cold process soapmaking. I can use them all with hot process!!! Love it!!

Besides, the soap isn’t glossy smooth, but it has a neat marble-y look to it instead, which I think is cool. I don’t want all my soap to look like that, but it does fit right in with my swirly soap, and my full-of-ground-herbs-and-flowers soap, and my layered soap. Now I have marble-y soap. If I could get multi-colored marble-y soap, more the better (that’s next on my agenda).

I haven’t been this excited about soap for months. It’s always fun to make it, but sometimes it gets kind of boring doing the same thing every time I make soap. This has got me all giddy again (poor DH, he thinks I’m nuts, I suspect).

What can I say? I love making soap. I don’t have career aspirations in the traditional sense (As a kid, I always thought I’d do something cool — be a great scientist or a great lawyer or a great SOMETHING!). Now I know I want to be a great soapmaker and make the best damn soap the world has ever seen. Watch me. *grin*
