Shea Butter Goat's Milk Soaps are now ready to ship. There are also some Christmas trees left in the Martha Stewart recipe, which I explain below.

I am offering a new goat's milk soap using Martha Stewart's recipe. It makes a very nice, hard, creamy bar. The color shifts from white to a natural tan. It has Crisco in it, which I really like. My old recipe resulted in a softer soap.

If you would like to order a batch of soap, just send me a private message. It takes eight weeks for the soaps to cure. You can choose scented or unscented, and have plenty of soaps to use all year.

Coconut Dream Soaps are back in stock. This is my most popular soap with my local customers. It's a huge favorite with knitters. They love detail. It's very creamy and long lasting. It's ideal for hard water.

For those of you interested in what's happening behind the scenes at Pink Cottage Soaps, please visit my blog. The address is www.stephenielawtonballetandyoga.blogspot.com.

    Shipping was superfast, five days from USA to Australia! The soaps arrived in perfect condition, very well packed, and beautifully presented, each one in its own bag. The soap is hard milled, so it is long lasting, and the subtle perfume is not overpowering.

    I have been using this wonderful shampoo bar for the last several weeks and couldn't be happier with the healthy condition of my hair and scalp.
    It makes a lush and fluffy lather that gently cleans and rinses out quickly and completely ...even from my heavy, thick, curly hair.
    It's so nice not to use chemicals and harsh ingredients to clean my hair.

About

How I Became a Soap Maker and Professional Knitter

I have always loved high quality, homemade soaps. I used to vacation with my parents in Carmel, California. There was a charming soap shop there, and I loved their soaps! They were always my favorite Christmas gifts to give and receive. Because I worked as a professional dancer for many years, I have always been artistic. After having both of my hips replaced last August, I started exploring new career paths. I learned how to make soap, and began giving it to family and friends as gifts. I was elated to find that almost every person who received a bar came back and wanted to purchase several. I began ordering the supplies in bulk, and making soap regularly. I experimented with goat's milk, shea butter, creme, yogurt, and other ingredients. I have been thrilled with the results, and so have my customers. I am pleased with how enthusiastic the response has been. Soap is a wonderful luxury. People who appreciate Belgian chocolate, gourmet coffee, and quality products love these soaps. I hope you will, too.

Knitting is something that immediately felt like a natural talent to me. It seemed familiar. I instantly fell in love with the high quality yarns. I saw how beautiful the garmets looked with carefully chosen colors and fibers. I loved that they could last for years and years, with proper care. I started out making dishcloths, and worked on my technique. I approached it like ballet. I've always trusted repetition and practice as a dancer. I worked the basics, over and over, until I felt that my dishcloths looked good enough to wear. I took a sweater class with a designer, and from there I was hooked. It felt like something was coming through me. It's as if I had a grandmother whispering in my ear what to do, and how to make things fit. I love making clothes for people. It's so rewarding to see someone wear something that I have made. It gives me great pleasure. I have rehearsed and performed in some incredible costumes as a dancer in Broadway tours. Bob Mackie is my favorite, and I continue to study his work and interviews. He says that the charisma of the performer brings the costume to life, and I feel the same thing happens with hand knits. There's a special energy there.
