A craft fair today. It's cold and rainy outside, what else is there to do? #shantarassoaps
Our goat guardian dog, Kara, enjoying the ice and sleet. Her goats refused to come out of the barn, and I don't blame them. It's just too yucky out there!
I just finished up this teal and white washcloth. I don't have it listed yet, but if you would like one like it, just let me know in the notes to seller section when purchasing this listing.

From Our Family To Yours, Naturally!

I've been in love with nature, animals, and the outdoors ever since I can remember. I grew up on a beautifully green piece of land not too far from the coast in Oregon. Our house overlooked the Coquille River, which flooded the whole valley every winter during the rainy season. For an outdoorsey child, you can probably only imagine how much fun my brothers and I had rowing cattle troughs around the flooded pasture and fishing in the water-covered garden when the river had gone over it's steep banks during the rainy season.

My parents were the absolute BEST, and they indulged my passion for HORSES! Later on, knowing how much I loved baby animals, they brought me home an adorable baby goat! I was hooked! Goats are absolutely the most entertaining and sweet animals in the world!

As an adult, I've never lost my love for horses or goats and we have quite a few of each of them. I learned to make soap several years ago when I realized that I needed to do something with all the milk my Alpine Dairy Goats were producing. I turned to soapmaking because I've always loved handmade soaps. Not too long after that, my business, Shantara's Soaps was born.

I am completely self-employed and love it! Making things that other people will enjoy is the most wonderful experience in the world and I'm so glad I am able to do it.

The business has grown by leaps and bounds and we've sent soap all over the world. My daughter and I have a great time meeting new people at craft fairs, festivals and other events as well as all the wonderful folks who buy my soap online.

    Owner, Head Milk Maid, Sheppardess, Tattooer (just Goat Ears), And Soapmaker.

    My name is Anita and I have had a love affair with all things hand made ever since I can remember. After getting goats and being swamped with more milk than I knew what to do with, I decided I'd try making soap and I've been at it ever since!

    This is my daughter Shannon and her son Ryland. Shannon has helped me in the business since day one. Ryland likes to help too, and is great at applying labels and passing out soap samples at festivals.
