Customer Feedback is Good...I Think

Feb 15 2016 0 Comments

Making handmade soap is a very interesting process.  But what's even more interesting is selling it - person to person - at big craft/art shows.  Oh if you could hear the feedback!  Don't get me wrong.  Customer feedback is great!  I love hearing what my peeps have to say and it helps me to develop the soaps that the majority of folks want and need.  Some of the feedback makes me laugh heartily because there are characters out there!  And especially at the outdoor festivals where the beer is flowing and the band is playing and it's a hot summer...

How did you get into making soap?

Mar 25 2013 1 Comment

 It does seem like an unusual living doesn't it?  I sure didn't plan on going down this road.  But life takes some strange and interesting turns at times and sometimes we come across something that speaks to us.  Thirteen years ago, it was an actual road trip that lead me into soap making.  We were outside of San Diego at a campground when I found a flyer advertising an herb farm complete with a gift shop and a coffee shop and a soap shop.  Really?  Who in their right mind would pass that up?  It sounded like a little bit...
