Shop Closed for Graduation Celebration

Those of you who know me as a Soapmaker know that I have taken my main job as a "Mom" very seriously!
As I turn the pages in the book of my life, this chapter of being a Mom of two boys has finally come to an end.
Steadfast and full steam ahead, I am learning to adjust to my new role of being a Mom to two young men!
Staying true to my core values of family first...
The Soap Shop will be Closed Thursday, June 8th- until Monday, June 12th. while we enjoy the company of our out of town guest and all the festivities that go along with our youngest sons Graduation celebration.
See you all next week :-)
Sincerely,
Jennifer 🎉❤️

It's high time for a brand new attitude!

Strawberry Bling



Now that the weather has changed and Spring really is in sight... The shop has all dried out from runoff flooding. We are beyond ecstatic to be back in the saddle again and soap production has once again began ;-)

Evanescent Bars

Sensual pleasures are like soap bubbles, sparkling, evanescent. The pleasures of intellect are calm, beautiful, sublime, ever enduring, climbing upward to the borders of the unseen world.-John Aughey
 
Scented with the alluring effervescence of fruity champagne and tiny fizzy bubbles. Activated charcoal has been added for a dark, dramatic effect. 

Limited bars of Evanescent have been added to our website.

On Winter Break

With temperatures averaging below zero, the Soapmaker is happily out on Winter Break. 
Precious moments spent with my family all warm and snuggly by the fire, brushing up on all my domestic skills.

Drinking way too many cups of coffee, as I take a little time to reboot, plan my Spring garden, work on taxes and refocus my thoughts for the year ahead....

Serendipity


Coming Soon!
 Stumbling across something good without looking for it....
that's Serendipity!
That's how we feel about our new Serendipity Bars scented with a subtle Autumn Apple. Not what we intended to create but overall happy with the outcome!
These bars are bigger than our regular sized "House" bars.

Farm Chicks 2016

Well, another Farm Chicks closed  out and in the books for Cedar House Soaps. What an amazing event....We literally were "Junk Drunk" from all the vintage goodies that curators packed into the Spokane Fairgrounds and Expo Center this past weekend.

If you have never gone...It truly is a sight to behold!


A special "Thank You" to all who came and supported our little adventure and for the love and support from my family and friends. I couldn't have pulled it off without you!

It's pretty awesome when you can get your teenage son to come help at the show!

Belly Flop

Keeping it "REAL".... The picture of the gorgeous soap top that I posted yesterday had so much promise. I came to work today with excitement at getting a chance to cut this beauty into lovely bars.

My imagination was swimming with visions of how beautiful it was going to be....

Well, that was a big fat zero....It was an utter Belly Flop! 


Testing a new fragrance and a new swirl technique. Safe to say this fragrance will not be getting the green light.

As you can see even the Soap shop has BLOOPERS wink emoticon

Dark side


Dark and alluring....playing around on the dark side using black in a soap for a cool contrast.



This one is scented Lavender Mint.

When I poured it on Friday...I was not  to happy with the results...

Came in on Monday morning and cut into this one and was pleasantly surprised!




On the drying racks now and will be available in May.

Worth the wait

If you've been following along for a bit...

You may remember my post clear back in November on  Visions of Spring


 Well, it was worth the wait.....because the Tulips are now in full bloom at Cedar House Soaps!

Spring has definitely sprung and we are enjoying the blooms ;-)

Swirling around


Making and restocking of Cucumber Melon...this one is well behaved and gives me plenty of time to play around with swirling.
