"Bee’s Soap Dough book "The Enchanted Book of Peculiar Ideas and Soap Potions" contains recipes and tool suggestions so you can create 3D images to adhere or insert into your soap. That is probably why you are reading it. But let me tell you that those things, the tools of her trade, are only a tiny aspect of the enchanted book’s contents. Bee writes in depth about inner presence, the state of mind and guides the reader to find their Muse. Pure wisdom exudes from the very pages to gently bring us to the very place as an artist before we set out on the path of trying to hand mold soap." - Customer

I would recommend this book to any artist of any medium…a book that can offer structure and gentle guidance to help free our minds and encourage walking with the Fairies and magic that our inner art can possess." - Customer
"I just finished reading Bee's book "An Enchanted Book of Peculiar Ideas & Soap Potions" and I thought it a magical read. I was expecting a 'cookbook' and a 'how to' but I was wrong. It is so much more. Bee has found a way to help the Muse come alive and inspire. Full of wit and charm, humor and wisdom it is the perfect read for anyone wishing to find their inner artist. The book focuses more on how to (and not to) enable yourself to create. I loved it!"

Thank you for bringing this to a place we could never be more happier with a book. Wow you helped me put of my fears. I can't wait to figure out were my first book went to. I know don't say it. I just have to find that. Lol
I purchased "An Enchanted Book of Peculiar Ideas and Soap Potions", "The Magic of Soap Dough", and "Soap Craft Inspiration". These are not just books! These are a journey to your creative soul. A Hand written note on the packing slip. Each book carefully wrapped in tissue paper. I was delighted to find in one of the books a hidden gem, a small drawing of a bird signed "Bee". The moment I held these books in my hands I knew that I was holding a piece of Bee. These books really are a foundational cornerstone to any creative endeavor.
