I do a TON of shopping for soap supplies online and eBates lets you get rebates at nearly every major online retailer, including Amazon, eBay, and Etsy. I literally save money just by opening up a tab in my browser via their link. I have already received a check from them within the first month so I just thought I would let you guys know about this since we soap makers and DIYers buy so much online! Plus, it’s free! Yippee! 😀


Whenever Caleb and I travel, we try our best to stay in Airbnbs. It’s WAY cheaper than getting hotels and are often more personalized, comfy, and unique. We literally have stayed in absolutely amazing, private homes for $35 a night! You can use the link below to get $40 travel credit when you sign up. 🙂




I’m delighted to say that some videos may be sponsored and some links may be affiliate links. It doesn’t cost you any more and I guess it’s like a little thank you to me for helping you find products you love! 🙂

  1. Awe adorable video!!! Love it! I've never messed with melt and pour but seriously considering lol. ❤

  2. Nice vid and thanks for sharing. How long do we need to wait before using the soap for this method? Read online that some need to wait few weeks.

  3. The air pocket idea has inspired me to make a swiss cheese looking soap. I should however learn to walk first as this will be my first time. Keep up the amazing videos

  4. I'm defiantly going to have to deep dive through your videos now! haha

    I've been wanting to make soap for a while but just recently actually started my research and item gathering for it. (My mom & Aunt had a candle / bath shop growing up.)

    I'll be 25 in a month and my sister is 13! So I'm totally feeling this, lol

  5. Wow that looks so beautiful thank you for sharing I will definitely like to see more kid friendly videos on soap making again thank you

  6. the clear section at the bottom reminded me of specimen jars so at some point I may try to make a beetle out of soap and encase it in clear soap – I haven't made soap in years and even when I did it was just a kid's set but even if it takes me loads of attempts I think it would be fun to at least try 😀

  7. Ok, this might sound weird but the soap kind of reminds me of underwater views of ponds or rivers and I am obsessed with that!
