And so it begins …

Welcome to my blog!  I’m glad you dropped by.

Here I plan to share my adventures in cold processed soap making, skin care and other crafts … and they will be adventures.  It’s been a year since I made my first batch of soap and since then I’ve made a grand total of 16 batches and dabbled in body butters, lip balms, candles and bath soaks.  In each one I experimented with new formulas, ingredients and techniques, and every one taught me something new.  Along the way there have been some disasters, but nothing I couldn’t either rescue or use in some other way (like my first attempt at shaving soap – hopeless for shaving but makes the most fantastic shower soap!).

I’m still learning.  Sometimes I’m thrilled by my success; sometimes I just smile and put it down to experience.  Either way it’s all an adventure!
