Soap Stamps

I don't sell my soaps, but that shouldn't stop me from wanting to personally autograph (stamp) every bar of soap made by me and used by my Mister and me right? I just didn't know what kind of a stamp to make though. To scratch out my name would be too hard and I didn't want the world to know (when I actually start to sell my soaps) I was the one who made that horrible soap (God forbid!!!). While I was drawing out small patterns on a paper, I saw the marker's cap had a pretty simple but sweet design. A round with small spokes radiating out...kind of like a small kid's drawing of Mr. Sunshine. 

Off to the trusty craft store I went, and picked up some modelling clay and got to work almost immediately.  I also picked up a wooden people peg, which I planned to use as a handle and this is what I created....

Stamped
I was very proud of the creative bug who lives inside me and Mister was totally amazed. He took me out for dinner that night!! What a sweetheart!! Later I made another stamp which I still have to stick on the wooden peg, but this is how it looks on the soap:

Stamped again
The soaps that got stamped are my coffee soaps. I plan to stick with the second pattern (the flowery one). :)

Its beautiful, you are talented. I would have never went about it that way. I would have just bought it instead (thats what I did). Excellent job.
