Well, Happy New Year's to everyone!  It's three weeks in, but I feel as though I'm still getting around to making resolutions and plans for the year ahead.  We had a little setback right after Christmas that had put our family on hold for a little bit.

But, we're b...

Just a little over a year ago, I "officially" opened for business. That is to say, I went through the rigors of getting a tax I.D. from the IRS, registering with my local paper and county, and getting a sales permit.  That, coupled with insurance for the business and a...

I just finished putting together my first order for a bridal shower, 15 gorgeous little lavender soaps all wrapped up pretty in burlap and lace.  I do hope that the bride and her guests love them!  I know that I enjoyed the process of making them-even if every step of...

I'm hanging in there, how about you?  The world still spins; sleeping, eating, laughing, crying, sleeping again--it's all good.  

And making soap--because we still gotta get clean.  

Buuut.....blogging.  Not so much.  When I don't feel like there's much to...

I thought I might stop by real quick to let anyone who's listening (reading?) know that I'm still here.

....and the unofficial start of autumn

This coming weekend is Labor Day, the unofficial end of summer, and the other bookend to Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer here in the U.S.  Too early in my neck of the woods for the leaves to start to change--despite ru...

Or: Trying to get back into things after vacation.

I know, I know, one thing we should do if we want to be bloggers and keep our readers is be consistent!  And, it's been.....awhile.  Honestly, I wasn't sure what I would even write about, as I'm trying to keep this blog...

Or, Learning Lessons the Hard Way

A lot of us started out wanting to make soap, except for one thing: LYE!!  (cue music: dum-dum-DUUUMM!)

This is completely understandable.  Lye IS scary stuff, and even once you've learned all the correct ways to handle it, you need to b...
