Bad blogger but Good soaps!!

I have been such a bad blogger lately and I am very sorry!  No really I am, life has been so hectic, we finally made it to Portugal in the plane as you know and then came back to lots of orders and full on work mayhem.

The gallery I manage the Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton had its official opening on 29th May which was great, it went really well with over 200 people attending, Peter Randal-Page the brilliant international sculpture and Graham Liverton Chairman of East Devon District Council officially opened the newly refurbished building and it looked spectacular.
Since then its been all hands to the pump, working round the clock to keep up with everything and settle in to the new offices, shop and cafe. My team have been great, I am so lucky to have such a wonderful bunch and we have 35 new volunteers who have signed up too!

Soap is going well too, I have signed up with a company called "It's Cold Outside" who specialise in Google adwords and they have helped me to put together a new campaign which seems to be going well.  I will keep you all informed as to their/my progress regularly, if they are good I will be sure to let you know.  In the meantime, you can find out more about their work by following this link

And finally.... for the moment anyway, I have been working on a fantastic wedding cupcake commission, the theme of the wedding is the mad hatters tea party and I was asked to design 12 special guest soaps using the theme as inspiration.  These are the samples I sent off to the bride- tiny cupcakes on a plate with jam tarts, on a table cloth on a mini cupcake, all made out of soap!!


  1. every time i look at your cupcakes i am getting hungry and that is not good, not good at all! i am trying to lose my weight Ish...
    Anyway - your soaps are brilliant and beautiful tho... :)

  2. wow, what amazing soaps! They must have taken you hours?

  3. Wow, it does sound like you are very busy indeed. Congrats on the wedding commision for soaps!!

  4. Wow! These are so so so cute. I can't believe they are 100% soap. Your bride is in good hands with these adorable designs.

  5. Thanks everyone! Your comments mean a lot. Im currently working on a Devon Cream Tea soap that reflects where I come from - lovely sunny Devon!! photos soon

  6. Hey, I think we're all posting a lot less frequently in the summer (or maybe that's just me!), but I'd say your soaps are amazing!!! I wouldn't even know where to start on such a project! Great job!
