HSMG Soapers Showcase 2011

The Handcrafted Soap Makers Guild Conference in Miami was a blast, tiring (in a good way), and jam packed with amazing speakers. I was so happy to hang out with friends and meet new people -  I will tell you all about it later but I thought for now I would get up some pretty pictures of soap for you all to drool over! I didn't write down the names of all of the winning soap makers so if you see this and are one of the winners that I didn't have a link for please leave me a comment and I will add you!

  2. Thanks for posting these, Erin! I was wondering about all the great soap that usually shows up in the Showcase. It's great to at least see photos. Next year, in person again!

  3. Thanks for posting pictures Erin! Great to see some of the conference fun that we missed. I LOVE the felted soap. I think I'm obsessed with that stuff. So cute, but super labor intensive. Even more of a labor of love than regular soapmaking.

  4. Erin thank you so much for including my soap!

    Loads of pretty soaps, I couldn't get enough of them. What fragrances were picked any idea?

  10. You should come out for the one in the USA! I know it would be a huge
