Soapy Contest!! Win an Awesome Neon Soap Paint Kit from PJ Soaps!

My friend and fellow soapmaking addict, Paula from PJ Soaps, makes these incredible soap paint kits. You may have read about them before when I made my Day of the Dead Soapsicles. I was so impressed by how easy it was to make my soaps look even more special!

Now you can try Paula's Neon Soap Paint Kit ($24 value) for free! You'll get 8 colors plus arrowroot powder to prime your soap. All you'll need is a fine paintbrush and a cup of water (and soap to paint - even store bought!) Just comment in the box at the top of my blog and tell me what you love and hate (or not love) about melt and pour soapmaking. If you have never tried "M&P" before, tell me why you haven't taken the leap.

The winner will be chosen randomly, so don't sugar coat your answer - tell me what you really think!! :) One of my goals with Soapylove is to share how much fun soap crafting is, so if I know why many of you haven't felt the love yet, then I'll know how I can make it fun for you!

You can enter once and the contest will be over on November 20. So go ahead - let me have it!

:-O I just saw Sindy's entry! Yes should come to Georgia! - especially for the Georgia spring fling *nods* I'd by the FO at the varsity (frosted orange) [I just couldn't resist!]

Maybe this is just me, but on certain mornings at craft fairs, my soaps sweat! I put up a little sign saying it's because they're picking up the humidity in the air, but as far as I know that has no basis in truth--I just have to say something!

Is it the essential oils I put in, I wonder, or do these soaps just sweat?

I just started playing with M&P, and it is so much fun! Granted I haven't done anything super difficult, just some layering and chunks! I didn't take the plunge for so long because I was afraid of sweating and I hate the way saran wrap looks on the soaps. I haven't tried painting, but it does seem like it would be fun too!

Oh - I am so wanting to try soap making. I have tried to reasearch but it is overwhelming - there are so many processes, bases, colors, scents, herbs / spices etc to add.
