Astrology Soap and some Soap Truth

Hi dear Soap Witches!  Incase I win the lotto, which means I will disappear, I wanted to say my part.

Astrology Soap

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.

I have written over 300 FREE blog posts, make and share videos and have written three soap dough books. This all takes a crap ton of time.  

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.

  • Hi Bee; I posted on your Capricorn on YouTube. I am a professional musician by trade and teach music and Latin, of all things. I have run a professional childrens’ theater, written and directed…. all those kinds of creative things. I have some incomplete work for books of my own which are in various stages of development.

    You might want to look at Lulu for publishing. I have purchased many books from them and when I get ready to publish they will be my first choice at this time. They print on demand but they are very quick to get things out and because of their approach there are all manner of very interesting and unique publications. I don’t have any contact information other than purchases, but I do have friends who use Lulu to publish.
    I purchased all three of your e-books and they are beautiful and enchanting. Best wishes, and again thank you for sharing yourself with all of us out here.

    Chris
