Covergirl! (or should that be Coversoap!?)

Jan 02 2012 Published by under Articles,soap photos

A Simply Soap photo made the front cover of Etzcetera magazine. l am so stoked! Never ever would l have dreamed that a photo that l took would end up on the front cover of *anything*!

The article is lovely. Etzcetera’s editor Kim has taken my words and turned them into something a bit more readable, and l love the way she’s designed the pages and selected photographs. If you’d like your own PDF copy of the magazine or to read it online, you can buy it here for only $4.50. It’s a beautiful magazine, and over 100 pages this issue.

Etzcetera Magazine

Nov 28 2011 Published by under daily soap stuff,soap photos

I’ve been asked by the lovely Kim Archer to be profiled for her new venture Etzcetera, a bi-monthly home and lifestyle magazine. It’s a wonderful collection of crafty articles, projects and inspiring photographs. A visual feast for anyone who loves crafty stuff, home decorating, colour & design.

So of course l needed photos to go along with my submission. I raced around the house taking photos of everything soapy…

 (a slightly empty curing rack, l had better get soaping!)

And then had the brilliant idea of having photos taken while l made a couple of batches of soap. Soapmaking in motion!

But l was in fits of laughter at the resulting 75-100 shots…l had imagined that just by putting on a clean top and apron that l would be transformed into a soapmaking glamazon. Sadly it was not the case – most of the photos showed facial expressions of extreme concentration…lots of frowning…and the remainder were blurred from everything happening just a bit too fast for the camera.

I’ve mentioned before that l am a ‘fly by the seat of my pants’ kind of soaper – now l have proof LOL.
(and yes, l forgot to wear my disposable gloves, very bad of me)

The finished logs – Snow Candy and Peppermint Rose before being trimmed and cut…

All chopped up and ready for the curing rack…

I did manage to get one or two half decent photos of me with some soap. I guess it’s time for that About Me page l’ve been threatening ;-)
The magazine will be out in January 2012. With better photos than these!
