Keeping Memories

The Longcroft website will disappear sometime this week. I'm sad to see it go, but less sad then I was when I first made the decision to close. One thing I will miss is the really pretty collage Stephanie made for my front page.


She made my soaps look quite nice!

Man o' Man. You and your soaps were the reason I got into CP soapmaking in the first place. I also have a mad keen interest in your Gracefruit store (I just placed a further order). Good Luck with everything x

Thanks so much y'all! :) I am so looking forward to making soaps just for fun.

They really are beautiful. I'm always having trouble making that nice marbled effect. Mine are never that pretty. What do you use to make them like that?

I was going to say what Egassner said: you made the soaps beautiful and Stephanie made them beautiful on screen. :)

It is sad to end an era of your life, but you'll have the memories to think back fondly on.

Oh you always made such wonderful soaps. We will miss them and at the same time cheer on you other endeavor.

They are beautiful.

Now you can enjoy them all by yourself ;)

And why so?
Are you going to give up making soap?

gracefruit said...

Thanks so much, everyone.

M, I have closed my soap business to work on my supply business. I couldn't go on doing both. :(

Heidi said...

Your soaps are so beautiful. I can understand how hard it is to let go!

This is an odd question and totally unrelated... Do you have a good bangers n' mash recipe? Dh loves it and I'd like to make an authentic version.

Heidi, I think the secret is a really nice caramelised onion gravy. I cook 2-3 sliced onions in butter before adding the stock. It works really well.

Heidi said...

Thanks! I'm going to give it a try this week.

It's such a shame your soaps were inspirational.

gracefruit said...

Thank you, Nadine. I am beginning to get the urge to make soap again, but not for sale!

Are you? That's great!
I hope you will show us the results?
