Soapy Inspiration: Happy Children's Day!

This week is Golden Week- a week of Japanese holidays... and today is Children's Day!  Children's Day, or Kodomo no hi, is a national holiday in Japan to celebrate children's happiness and success.  Koi streamers are hung to symbolize strength and courage.  I found a great photo of these streamers on Flickr taken by Moonstitches:

Koi Nobori

The bright, happy colors inspired these soaps:

 Thanks to Jenny at the Southern Institute for Domestic Arts and Crafts for her post about Children's Day (psst, she's doing a giveaway this week too!), and thank you so much to Moonstitches for graciously allowing me to use her photo for some soapy inspiration!
