I have ALWAYS wanted to make soap!
And now I am!
Not only can you find one of a kind Crochet patterns designed by me, handspun/hand dyed yarn spun & dyed by me, NOW you can purchase Handmade Soap - made from scratch by me!
Soap making has always intrigued me, but I was a bit nervous to dive into yet another craft...BUT, I am the ULTIMATE crafty lady, so of course I was bound to do it!! And, wow, is it ever FUN!!!
A bit about my soaps - I make all these soaps from scratch, using Oils & Sodium Hydroxide (lye). This process allows the oils & lye to combine to become soap (through Saponification). The end result is TRUE soap like it has been made for hundreds of years. The saponification process completely changes the molecular structure of the oils & lye, so there is only pure soap with no chemicals. I choose oils based on their properties, for example: coconut oil is very cleansing, shea & cocoa butter is very conditioning, etc. I choose additives based on their functions. Some additives can be omitted, so some are purely to make a soap more luxurious, bubbly, or just smell & look great! Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions about my soaps!
I now have a TAB above labeled Soaps - where you can find all my soaps I have available for purchase.
I add NEW soaps EVERY WEEK - so please check back often to see what creations I have available!
You can click SOAP to go directly to my store!
Thanks so much!!!

I needed to make a bunch of Pompom Makers for my daughter's class that were easy for kids to use. The kids were going to make pompom "Love Bugs" for a Valentine's Day activity & the kids needed to make the "Love Bugs" all by themselves. So I created an easy, DIY Pompom Maker that anyone can use!
