Hi dear Soap Witches! ￼ Incase I win the lotto, which means I will disappear, I wanted to say my part.
I am Bee the Soap Witch. I brought soap dough to the foreground some years ago. When no one was posting soap dough creations, I was in my little world sharing, sharing and sharing. I was excited to have a new medium.
A "friend" said, "who's going to follow a soap instagram channel?" Nice friend. No longer a friend. AND, only about 28.3k people!
Some claim to have created soap dough, but well... no one created it. It can be a natural by-product of cold process soap. With that said, I was the one who brought attention to moldable soap and coined the phrase "soap dough".
I think it's a big deal to bring an idea into full focus, to bring ideas from the ethers and manifest for others to have access to something that was JUST an idea before.
I wrote articles, I answered tons of questions, I shared and shared... I, also searched and searched, but couldn't find anything on the subject of soap dough, moldable soap, pliable soap... So, I experimented, explored and wrote 3 books on the topic over the years. Sharing all my soap dough explorations, what works, what doesn't and how to make ideal soap dough.
Soap dough might be a by-product of cold process, there is a way to make smooth and ideal moldable soap dough. I've been in my little soap lab these past few years perfecting this process.
As far as I can tell I was the first to write THREE books about moldable, pliable cold process soap aka SOAP DOUGH. I've seen many people shade the truth of this, claiming they started this soap dough "thing". I figured I'd just say my version. I was (and am) committed to sharing all the TIPS AND TRICKS of soap dough.
My original mentor even commandeered ideas I sent her. Yup, it broke my little creative heart. I confronted her and she came out with claws, verbally attacking. I apologized. I apologized for touching it with a needle. Yup. And she's never spoken to me again. I was not wrong. She copies other people, but has few if any original ideas. I've been watching.
I get that not all people are honorable, but some people are down right not people. I think a real person embodies compassion and honor.
Just thought I'd clear it up. It's a cryin' shame when people take other people's ideas and claim them as their own. What's the big deal? Someone has to come up with ideas. Why not just say? (Money? Power? Ego?)
I do not want to live in a world void of creatives, void of those of us who feel and see the world differently.
Those who commandeer other people's creativity, well... we have a name for that... It might start with a "C"... Corporation. LOL You thought I was going to say something else? I write to you, creative sensitive soul, because you get me. ;)
I'm sharing this video because some have asked how I make creatures out of soap dough. Here is the video, which is first of 12 on how to make Capricorn the Goat.
To you, my loyal reader and soap witch, I'd love to create two of my books (one already is an actual book, which is being printed now... Get ready for those to be restocked) printed in actuality, would you send me information, if you run across something on your travels? I'm searching now to find the right contacts to make my books into BOOKS ACTUAL. ;)
And, thank you for reading this far.
