Default Hello from Illinois!

Hi everyone. I am completely new to this forum. I've been making M&P soaps for a few months now. I hope to learn more about soap making, meet some people and share ideas!

Hey Splashbombs, I was born at St. Anthony's Hospital in Rock Island! And grew up in the QC's... you know how it is, grade school, High School in Rock Island; college at Marycrest in Davenport; lots of friends/relatives in Moline, first job out of college as a comptroller at Iowana Ice Cream in Bettendorf! Loved working there... didn't do a thing for my figure, though!

Wow you are definitely a QC native! I moved here in high school almost 30 years ago (gasp!).

Thank you for the welcome! Gosh that's a great question. It's hard to choose one thing, but I would have to say I'm one of the most resilient and persevering people I know!
