Challenge Club Winners Announced

When I chose the Taiwan Swirl as our technique of the month for the Soap Challenge Club, I had no idea how challenging it would be!! It appears to be this simple technique that anyone can do with amazing results. In theory, this is true. However, this happened to be the one technique that I ended up making six batches just to get a decent video tutorial made. I am so impressed with the entries for this challenge, knowing how long it took me to get it “just right.”

Let’s start with our grand prize winner. Congratulations to Sarah Milroy of Spicy Pinecone!! She wins the $50 gift certificate from Nature’s Garden!! Sarah created this beautiful blue and black Taiwan Swirl soap:
