Well, after several days of not writing, I have two posts in one day. My package from the Bramble Berry Soap Swap arrived today! I sent in twelve soaps and received thirteen in return. It appears that I got my soap in early enough to get one of the bonus soaps made by Anne Marie from her book. I am happy with my little haul and there is a nice variety of soaps for me to try.
I am particularly fond of the scent of the Arabian Spice scent. There are also some really nice essential oil blends as well. The one made by "Dana" has a link on the back to the video showing how it was made. I haven't watched it yet as I was busy picking up the car and getting groceries today, but I plan on watching it tomorrow most likely.
My only mild disappointment with the swap was that I got two soaps with the same scent and it is not a scent I am particularly fond of (Cherry Blossom). Overall, I am very happy with the haul and I had fun opening all my little soapy gifts! I hope that the people who got the soaps that I made are not disappointed with them. I feel like such an amateur compared to some of the other soaps that I received. It was nice to see the other wrapping ideas that people had as well. Overall, I had a great time and learned from things, I think.
