Ocean critter series cupcake soaps - OCTOPUS
Image by LilyBaySoap
A lot like my original critter soaps, these cupcake soaps start out with all plant based oils and made from scratch using the hot process method (the same as cold process soap, but with a few more steps involved), and NEVER from a pre-made base!
The bottom portion was scented with a light vanilla cream, left uncolored, and contains a pinch of ultra fine, ground pumice for a little extra cleansing power.
The top portion was colored with natural iron oxides, scented with a tropical blend of vanilla, mango and sweet orange and topped off with a cute ocean critter and a dusting of micro glitter. The manufacturer recommends the toys for 3 and up, as they are small and could pose a choking risk.
weighs about 4oz.
I have about ten different ocean critters coming over the course of the next couple of days.
LOOK for more critter soaps very soon!

It's all about the light. I thought photographing animals and birds was all about timing. I never though a million tons of stone would be so demanding too! This was taken on our first evening and is one of the first photos I took. We didn't have another decent sunset. I'm pretty pleased with this as I'm not normally a landscape photographer. I decided to try something a little different and it seemed to work out OK.

From Wikipedia (excerpt):
The meerkat or suricate Suricata suricatta, a small mammal, is a member of the mongoose family. Meerkats live in all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana and in South Africa. A group of meerkats is called a "mob", "gang" or "clan". A meerkat clan often contains about 20 meerkats, but some superfamilies have 50 or more members. Meerkats have an average life span of 12-14 years.
