When Debbie started Soapylove she struggled with her love of color and sweets versus her attraction to modern design. The two didn’t look right in the same shop so she put my sophisticated soaps away and focused on soapsicles and soap tarts (which she loves passionately!).

Now Debbie is happy to share many of the techniques she is most proud of. With lots of photos and tips, you will be able to recreate several of her styles, and with loads of inspirational images and resources, you’ll be making up your own experiments, too.

Get inspired by the Technicolor brights and festive patterns of Latin culture. Living in San Diego—a stone’s throw from Mexico—Debbie is so fortunate to find inspiration everywhere she goes: the grocery store, in tacquerias, on billboards, at festivals, and from my friends!

Her favorite Mexican tradition is the Day of the Dead holiday (Dia de los Muertos). Spirits of the dead are welcomed back to their homes with beautifully decorated altars made by their loved ones. Sugar skulls, marigolds, candles, incense and special foods adorn home altars. It’s a great holiday to get ideas for the hand painted soap tutorial, this issue’s featured project.

To add Halloween into the mix, Debbie has a soapy trick and a soapy treat for you! Check out 2 fun projects and pick your favorite! When you’re done with this issue you’ll be ready for the shorter days and longer nights that come with Autumn. Enjoy!

When Debbie was in college she lived just 2 hours away from her boyfriend, Jim (now husband) who went to UC Santa Cruz. This wonderful town on the north point of Monterey Bay is famous for its “granola” attitude and style. Debbie would visit every weekend. After she graduated, she moved there while Jim studied acupuncture. The town’s influence on lifestyle choices was unavoidable. They rode our bikes everywhere, enjoyed the wonderful farmer’s markets, had a bountiful garden and went for walks in the redwood forests often. This exposure to life focusing on nature, conservation, and daily physical activity gave Debbie a great appreciation for “alternative” choices. Choosing things in life that make for a healthier body
and planet are both rewarding and good for the soul.

This issue of Let’s Get Soapy focuses on natural ingredients we can use to add beauty and function to our creations. Enjoy!

Finally – take a tour of Jennifer Hardaway’s professional workspace. Her line of lotions and scrubs are all produced in her 300 square foot shop. Take a tour and get some tips for your own space!
