Seeking inspiration...

I recently took a Friday off. I figured that being a soap artisan, I'm allowed the occasional day off, time to clear my mind and look for inspiration.

This photo is most of my soap family arranged next to the south fork of the Yuba river. Locals can probably spot where on the river this picture was taken.

It's a breathtakingly beautiful spot...and yep, I got inspired. First new soap from my workshop will be a Yuba inspired soap. I'm thinking green/blue and white all mixed into a sometimes serene, sometimes frenzied mix. Scent wise, I'm testing blends with eucalyptus.

Oh, not sure if any of you have noticed, but my bars are larger now and I give them a beveled edge. They almost look like gems to me.
