Hello to everyone and THANK YOU for checking out SoapTastic soaps! I hope that you have become a member and will try out our soaps. The beginning has a few phases, so let me go back to the very beginning. If you read "about us" then you know that we have worked at various festivals and craft shows. Occasionally you get a break and get to wander about and buy items that appeal to you. That is how I was first introduced to natural cold process soaps.
From the beginning, the very first bar, I became hooked and continued to find and buy natural cold process soaps at almost every show we worked :). I noticed that my skin was less dry and I had no problems even washing my face with these soaps. So why wasn't I making soap if I loved it so much? Well after our busy festival season in the fall I bought books, supplies and started my first batch of soap January 2011. My first mold started with a converse skinny shoe box! Ha! How I love to look back and see the progression of this past year.
My parents own a store called "Piddles Trading Post" and have allowed me to have my soaps sold at their store (thank you mom & dad). I have attended a couple craft shows with only my soaps and have truly enjoyed it. It is fun to see peoples reactions to various scented soaps, someone may love it and the next person will prefer a different scent.... and now another new beginning. I am launching into the web and am anxious to see the response.
I cannot write this first blog without saying Thank You to my husband for listening about soap ideas, staying out of the kitchen several evenings when soap in being made and also for testing out so many soaps, my friends and family for their encouragement andusually having to listen about soap at some point in most of our conversations, my friend Brenda for her tech saavy smarts and helping me with this site and other multiple questions about computer things, and first and formost Thank You Lord for opening doors with so many people and places and helping me to discover the joys of making something from basic natural rescorses and seeing it become something useful and beautiful.
How amazing and fun this journey has become. Thank you for coming along for the ride and I hope to hear feedback from you on the soaps you purchace.
