A dear friend sent me a handmade card recently.  Anything that is handmade is just a little more special because somebody spent some of their personal and valuable time creating it.  Something handcrafted says, "You are important to me."  I especially appreciated the card she sent because it has to do with my craft - soap making.  The quote on the card is attributed to Picasso, and I have seen it before, worded in slightly different ways.  It says, "The art of making soap washes from the soul the dust of every day life.  Picasso"  I am a little thrilled every time I read that quote because for one thing, it connects me with Picasso.  And did he really make soap and find it a creative art?  It is cool to consider that possibility.  Because that is the way I see soap making also.  I spent years getting the chemistry part of it to what I feel  is the perfect bar of soap.  And now I am able to spend a lot of time with the creative art aspect of soap making.  And there is no end to the possibilities.  So I hope you will consider each and every bar of handmade soap that you purchase from PSS - to be a little something that says you are valuable and worth this soap artists time.  Each bar is a piece of fine art!!  Enjoy!
