As for our Facebook Photo of the Week, there’s no mystery here: this soap is simply stunning!
This week’s Facebook Photo of the Week comes to us from Sarah of Spicy Pinecone. Sarah’s soaps are consistently beautiful, with intricate swirls and stunning presentation. Scented with Pearberry Fragrance Oil, this particular soap stood out to me with its fun use of primary colors and texture on top. This soap’s beautiful swirl appears to be a combination of a hanger swirl technique and an in-the-pot swirl. Interested in trying these techniques? Check out these fun tutorials below:

Aren’t Sarah’s soaps gorgeous? Pictured above (left to right, clockwise) are Sarah’s “Summer Lovin'” soap, “Sweet Dreams” soap scented with lavender, Mustache soap scented with Shave and a Haircut Fragrance Oil, and a beautiful Asian Pear and Lily soap. Not only does Sarah make lovely soap, she also sells candles, baby onesies and baby blankets. She is a crafter extraordinaire, and we are happy to have her in our soaping community. Expect a soapy package coming your way, Sarah!
