Wow what a Saturday I had. I did not realize what a all day drive it would be. I am so glad I did it though. There is nothing like presenting your work to a client. I think they really enjoyed my interpretation of their wine in soap.
Girls-are-meaner we have decided needed a little spice added to it but I believe I have that covered. I find it is real important when designing soaps for a particular customer to not make to big of batches at one time. scents and color can fade over the curing time and you may find that something was lost during that time. They were still pleased with the coloring and the scent. I found that making the drive down to present the soaps also helped in giving it the special touch.
I have to say that if ever around the Navajo Lake or Blanco area you have to stop into this winery. It is absolutelyy gorgeous. Its nestled down in a valley surrounded with cottonwoods and grapevines. The look is rustic and very inviting. I loved the wine tasting room and Jerusalem (She is this wonderful dog that is absolutely the best).
Also I have to give credit to Three other young men who were on this all day trip. (Three hours there and Three back not counting stops). I had my sons half brothers and him along with my hubby. They were all troupers. Here are some pics of the trip.
