slumped bottles

If you slump them at exactly the right temperature a dish is created which is perfect for throwing your earrings into at the end of the day- or a soap dish-or potpourri-or votive candles-so many different functions!!!

I did a craft show this weekend and was introduced to handmade soap. It smells so good, can't wait to start using it. I've been inspired to create some soap dishes. So many different designs dance in my head.
