I have recently dove into the art of soap making. After attending a Mother Earth News Fair last spring where I attended a seminar about making your own hand soap (hard and wet) and laundry soap, I couldn’t contain my excitement to have a hand at this art. In case you haven’t picked up on it yet from other blog posts, my husband and I like to take a hands-on approach to life and squeeze in as many hobbies and handcrafts as we can into our already busy lives.
Over the last year I have been honing my skills and finding recipes and mixtures of smells, color and design that I am now have the confidence to share with the public. While I am still working on getting a functional page together that will fine tune and mainstream the purchasing process, feel free to use the form at the bottom of the page to contact me for any inquiries and purchases.
