Having developed a bit of a reputation as a Christmas craft daredevil through a string of annual projects involving fire and/or some risk of explosion/combustion, I finally hit on a project where the product was actually more exciting than the process.

People started asking me far in advance which kinds of soap I'd be making this year and sneaking in subtle requests for some of their favorites from the year before. I love being able to give something personal, usable, easily shipped, and beautiful. My little enterprise has grown over the years to the point that I have decided for the first time this year to make my soaps available for purchase online.

Having developed a bit of a reputation as a Christmas craft daredevil through a string of annual projects involving fire and/or some risk of explosion/combustion, I finally hit on a project where the product was actually more exciting than the process. My first soap-making adventure took place during the holiday season of 1998, and the reception was so positive that I have made soap every year since then in response to requests from friends and family. People started asking me far in advance which kinds of soap I'd be making this year and sneaking in subtle requests for some of their favorites from the year before. I love being able to give something personal, usable, easily shipped, and beautiful. My little enterprise has grown over the years to the point that I have decided for the first time this year to make my soaps available for purchase online. My experience tells me that this is a gift others will enjoying giving and receiving as much as I do, and widening my customer base will make it more feasible for me to acquire the volume of materials and ingredients needed to keep up with my ever-growing gift-giving list. Especially now that I am the mother of two small children, it's great to be able to make something right here at home that people are so happy to receive.
My soap is made from high quality, vegetable-based ingredients (the only exception being my milk soap). I never use animal fats and the only animals I test on are my family and friends. I test each soap to ensure that it meets my standard of a gentle pH level and superior lather. I hope you enjoy my soap so much that you want to share it with those you love.
