I. Love. This. Color.

And here are the soaps it inspired:

Joyful Moments

Our daffodils are blooming...



A joyful sign that spring is on the way!

For more joyful moments, visit Joyful Jones!



And I'm also linking up with And then, she {snapped}!  I'm working on my Photoshop skills with this photo: I selected the background and added a lens blur, then decreased the background saturation to enhance the foreground daffodil.  (Can I just say, Photoshop is awesome?)

Soapy Inspiration- Ribbon!

I'm a bit of a scrapbook junkie, and I've got all kinds of papers and glitters markers and doodads in my craft room.

One of my favorite things to scrap with is ribbon...


...and this is the last tidbit of one of my favorite rolls.  And then I thought... hey, that would make a great soap!


Aren't they cheery?


I used a sweet, floral scent with notes of magnolia and lilies... I am so ready for spring!


Oh, and if you're so inclined, you can get them here!

We're also linking up with Macro Monday, LENS Photo Challenge, and Making the World Cuter Monday today- check out their blogs for some cool macro shots and cute stuff!

New! Lime Kumquat Soaps

More new soaps at Bean Street!



I've been working with a new Kumquat fragrance for a while, but it was a little too... fruity?  So I blended it with a nice tart lime, and viola!  The Lime Kumquat Soap was born.





You can get some for yourself here!

Oh, a little housekeeping note... as you can see, I'm using larger-than-before photos on the blog... because I like pretty pictures!  But please give me any feedback if it makes the pages load too slowly or if the formatting doesn't look right on your computer... mmkay?  Thanks!
