March – Alice vs. Charlie – All Levels
Cheshire Cat and Chocolate Factory by Amy Warden
For March, we are doing a super fun themed challenge!! The two categories will be based on these timeless Disney movies: Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Pull out all the creative stops for this one! This will be a truly blind challenge, with no identifying information attached to any of the entries and no posting allowed on social media until after the challenge is over. We have two sponsors for this challenge: Brand new sponsor LiluSoap Tools and returning sponsor Lovin Soap!! LiChing says, “Ever since I founded LiluSoap Tools, my mission has been providing the most durable, efficient and friendly tools as well as the most enjoyable soapmaking experience to all soap makers.” Lovin Soap has a vast collection of e-books and courses for soap and cosmetic recipes as well as business information. These sponsors are providing the following prizes for both categories:
Grand Prize: 6-Second Beveler ($75 value) from LiluSoap Tools
2nd Place: $35 gift certificate from Lovin Soap
3rd Place: $25 gift certificate from Lovin Soap
Sponsor’s Choice: $20 gift certificate from Lovin Soap
Lovin Soap will also provide a $20 gift certificate for the Sponsor’s Choice prize in the non-competitive bonus category!

April – Polka Dots – Intermediate
Polka Dot soap by Creative Soap by Steso
Tatiana Serko of Creative Soap by Steso will be returning as a guest teacher to share her Polka Dot technique for the April challenge. You will need a standard 1/4″ (6mm) round hole punch with a 2″ reach if possible. This is what Tatiana will use for the tutorial. (Also available from Walmart.com.) The classic style will also work. We have another brand new sponsor for the April challenge: Babassu for You in Germany. They sell babassu oil in its most natural form and of the best quality: unrefined, organic and fairly traded for the past 14 years. They will send it anywhere in the world and will cover all shipping costs for the winners. Here are the prizes for both categories:
Grand Prize: 2 kilos of babassu oil + shipping
2nd Place: 1 kilo of babassu oil + shipping
3rd Place: 1 kilo of babassu oil + shipping
Sponsor’s Choice: 1 kilo of babassu oil + shipping
They will give out an additional kilo of babassu oil + shipping to the winner of the Sponsor’s Choice in the non-competitive bonus category.
