I love (love, love, love, love, love, love) seeing SoapQueenTV and SoapQueen-inspired ideas out on the marketplace. It’s even better when the soaper flat out says that our soap’spiration inspired them to make cool works of soap art.
Then ‘SingingWolf‘ from the forum (and frequent commenter at SoapQueen.com) tried the Fortune Cookie Soaps from SoapQueen.TV Independence Day Episode and did a great job. They were for a present for her boss and she says, ‘Folks were crowding around my boss’s desk, sniffing at the birthday presents that were stacked up‘. Sweet! That’s just what we like to read.
Are you adding the liquid glycerin? If the soap is cracking, it's because it's not fresh enough. If you make the soap, the second it gets hard, that's when you need to do the forming. If you wait too long, the soap gets older and cracks. =)
Hello, how are you? I love your show and all the beautiful soaps you do, I note with much Dettal the tutorials but I could not do the fortune cookie soap,because when i fold de circle, it break
What can i do for that problem?

I've made LOTS of soaps using the rubber stamp technique. You should see me sitting on the floor in Michael's, picking through the dollar bins for the "best" stamps! ^_^
I get my rubber stamps at michaels in the dollar bin. the choices are sometimes limited, but i usually like their lines. here are 2 posts of soaps that i made using your techniques, anne marie. Thanks!
Thanks for the inspiration! I love your blog and store. I dragged my old roomie to otion from Seattle when I visited. she now has soap that she made too!
Miranda, I share the exact same sentiment. My hobby turned business was mostly possible with the tutorials and wonderful advice I have found from Anne-Marie, so thank you again! I can't even believe how quickly word of mouth travels – I just got interviewed on a local talk radio show re: entrepreneurship! THANKS!!!!
My last blog post was inspired by your videos, my pics aren't as good as theirs but I love the way it turned out! I love your videos, can't wait for Thursdays to get here!!
Bath Cake, I did a quick search on Etsy and didn't find that seller but man, that sounds like a great find!
Miranda, Your words very kind and encouraging. I am so glad that you are enjoying the tutorials and SoapQueenTV episodes. I can't wait to see your Etsy shop when you open it. =)
what a perfect time for me to confess to you: i have learned almost all i know about soaping from you, Anne-Marie, and i am so thank~full that i have found your company and products, your blog, and now, your video tutorials! i am still in the waiting to re-open my etsy shop, but you can bet that i have many, many soaps that have been directly inspired by your tutorials. i also love your business advice and the other inspiring things you post on your blog. kudos to you, Anne-Marie, for being such a great teacher! 😀
I also found an ebay vendor selling surprise packs of the clear stamps for cheap. You don't get to pick what you get but its a quick way to start with some variety!
Look for the good deals on the rubber unmounted stamps at the Dollar Store; we just found Christmas ones (score!) and can't wait to do a SoapQueenTV episode with Christmas ones.
