I Do...or rather... I did

       Well, long time no posting, so I thought you may like to see some of the things I made in the earlier days of 'Oakwood Soaperie'
       My first large order (before I'd even set up my Folksy and WowThankyou shops, before any craft stalls or events, was from a lovely couple Amy and Adam. They got married at the beautiful Ellingham Hall  in north Northumberland last year and kindly asked me to make their wedding favours. Amy's flowers were all deep reds and she loved the smell of roses so commissioned me to make rose fragranced bath bombs. There were to be 60 in total, plus 5 lage gift boxes full of goodies like my cocoa butter bath melts,  Honey soap, and Solid Cocoa Butter body bars  and my heart skipped a beat...oh god! the responsibility!!

      Once I'd got a production line set up and all my ingredients ordered ready I set to work weighing, mixing and molding. Amy had these lovely little bird cage favour boxes, fortunately the bombs fitted perfectly, phew!

      Here are some pictures of the happy day, kindly provided by Amy. Hopefully I made the grade :oD

Ooh, bubbly!! You can just see Amy's lovely fan place markers too.

Tables all set out for the wedding breakfast.
