Chris and Lauren Pickens' Profile

About

We are a quirky couple who love to create! We live with our happy go lucky therapy dog, Kalea, and our adorable Beagle named Cymri. The hubby is a Math genius who works as a network engineer and I am a Social Worker working in addiction treatment.

We are an easy going, down to earth couple with a passion for art, traveling, and new experiences. We plan on seeing the world and hopefully leaving at least a small imprint on the sand behind us as we inspire and create.

We got into soap making when we decided it would make great gifts for our wedding guests. We figured it would at least be something people could actually use rather than just nonchalantly "forget" to take home with them. However, my mom said people might get offended and think we were trying to tell them they needed a bath! But, we did it anyway and it was a HUGE hit. Many guests wouldn't let people…

We got into soap making when we decided it would make great gifts for our wedding guests. We figured it would at least be something people could actually use rather than just nonchalantly "forget" to take home with them. However, my mom said people might get offended and think we were trying to tell them they needed a bath! But, we did it anyway and it was a HUGE hit. Many guests wouldn't let people use their soap because they didn't want it to be gone. Many said that their small 3/4" bar lasted them nearly a year of handwashing. So, we figured why not make more! Plus, I unfortunately have very sensitive skin so this was also a way for me to create soap that worked for me. All our soap is "me tested" so it is perfect for others with sensitive skin.

Between the two of us, we are talented in sewing, beading, painting, photography, wood working and wood burning, and soap making. In an attempt to not overwhelm our already busy lives, we are limiting ourselves to certain crafts for the time being. We look forward to expanding this as time allows.
