Artisan soaps made from luxurious oils and exotic butters with milks, creams and silk fibers; to the whimsy of glycerine soap creations. Full of fluffy bubbles and velvet lathers, once your skin it treated to handmade soap you will never go back. bytheSEAsoap was born out of the love of TSPink soap rocks some fifteen years ago. I found those soaps at a Nevada City Art Gallery and my obsession for beauty in a bar of soap began. I still have a small piece of that first soap! ~~Pam Mella~~

Photography for me is a challenge and here is a new photo of my current Mermaid soap. My water colorist friend is helping me look into better contrast for backgrounds when shooting out of doors!   I'm looking for web sites to help me learn more so if you have any suggestions I'd be grateful.

So I've once again begun a joruney to a life of more freedom!  Perhaps you might be interested in looking into this too.  We might just live a little greener lives because of this lifestyle.  That is my hope for me and my family. 

A journey of 21 days!


A few of the reasons why I make soap are because it is a useable art form, a necessary hygienic product we need in our every day and a way to pamper my mature adult skin. Oh yes and it doesn't require dusting!

To this end I'm re igniting a journey, and refreshing my determination to live a simpler life thru minimalism. Minimalism in a way of living that is a greener alternative to commercial driven consumerism which creeps into our lives on a daily basis. Take a little pressure off of me and the environment at the same time will all good.

Here is a site you might just find interesting. It renewed my determination and you might find it interesting as a lifestyle as well.

These people have a pending documentary about minimalism soon to be published and I'm looking forward to that!

Happy travels and remember to recycle those hugs!  We're all in this together right?
