Soap Swap and a Baby?

This was baby Jamisen’s first day at the Bramble Berry office. We tried to get him to help out with the swap organization but his Mamma put him in a pretty deep food coma. He was out like a light! And could he be any cuter? I mean…could he possibly. Be. Any. Cuter?

I know you’re all excited about the soap swap. It’s like Christmas in May! Team Bramble Berry has been hard at work getting everything organized so we can get these swap boxes out the door this week! Feast your eyes (below) on just a small fraction of the soaps that came in for the swap.

Cold process swappers!

Melt and pour swappers.

    It looks like so much fun, I’m sorry I missed this one, and I’ll be sure to catch the next.

    My daughter and I were so delighted to see that some of our soap entries made the pictures! We have started this hobby years back and it has become something that everyone wants to come over to our house and participate in. Our friends are hooked. Soap makes a wonderful gift especially since you have so many options to choose from.
    Best wishes with the newest addition to the Brambleberry family- he is adorable! Enjoy and thanks for all that you do. We love the swap and can’t wait until the next one.

    Adorable photo! I love it.

    Please, please, please tell me you found the box of soap swap soaps I sent in. The last I heard, you hadn’t yet received them :-(


  9. Bonnie says:

    I think our soaps frame the cute little bundle of joy very nicely! I have so enjoyed this new hobby and was tickled pink to see my soap in the photos!

  10. Linda says:

    By the way, as a new soaper, I’m getting some great ideas about packaging, colors, etc. just by looking at these photos. I hope you took lots of photos of all those beautiful soaps.

    If the box of soaps I sent to Bramble Berry for the swap doesn’t turn up soon, I’m going to be sooo upset :-( :-( :-(


  11. Amy Warden says:

    Those are some pretty wonderful looking soaps, but I must say the baby takes over the shot. He could. NOT. be. any. cuter.
