    Has anyone ordered from them? I placed an order on 9/27 and I have not heard anything yet. The order acknowledgement said it would take 7 - 10 days before they ship which is fine. I called yesterday to check on the progress and to see if they had an estimated ship date, but I got their machine. I left a message, but I have not received a call back.

    I have a couple of Upland molds. I ordered when they were moving this winter so I knew it was going take a log time to get them. I know this doesn't fit your situation but I LOVE the molds!

    I just don't know what to do. No one will call me back. I have no idea whether I will be getting my molds or not. I've called once or twice per week and also filled out their contact form -- no response.

    Bummer! The usually put a notice up on the website if they are going to be gone for a while. I need to order too. But now I am hesitant. I did leave a message for Kelsei's Creations but have not heard from either. What is one to do?

    Wonderful! I was beginning to worry they would never get back on their feet. I have plans to order more of their molds early next year. Good to know they're back in business. :)

    I first have to figure out my new formula size since the molds hold a different amount than my current molds. They are 8 inches longer. According to the forula for figuring mold capacity I need 84 oz of oils so when I get that through soapcalc and a few other things done I will head for the soap kitchen. With camera in hand.

    Yes - if I can figure out how to resize the pictures. I'll be unmolding tomorrow so I'll have pics of it without soap, filled, and the unmolded soap. I think the soap gelled - I'm not used to gel. I think it's because of the wooden frame that holds the mold. The silicone is wobbly so the frame is a must. I'm used to the silicone molds I got from WSP. Much stiffer and no frame.
