    Whittany Who?

    I’ve found SMF very helpful over the years, but I’ve never signed up to participate in discussions. One of my soap sisters invited me to challenge with her, and here I am getting started so I can do so eventually. I’m a full time math teacher and a small time soap maker. I’m glad to join and see...

    I Dream In Soap!

    The idea of making soap started as more of a fun idea, as I enjoy creating with my hands no matter how it comes out (mind you, I’m not very great but that doesn’t ever stop me). Just like I learned to make my fabulous chapsticks in 2019, in December 2020, I decided I wanted to start making soap...

    A little introduction from a Newbie Visually Impaired Soapmaker

    Hi there! My name is Jenny Lux. I am not sure if I am doing this correctly but I saw that this thread was for new soap makers. The reason I am not sure if I am inserting my introduction in the right place is because I am legally blind/visually impaired. Due to birth defect and glaucoma, I have...

    Hello from New York

    I'm in upstate new York and found you all a couple of days ago, so I joined, so I could ask questions, or find my answer. I've been making small batches of soap for years now, mainly for my family. I personally like hot process, although cold process is and can be prettier. I am starting to...

    Hi! I’m Emma!(:

    Hello everyone! My name is Emma and I’m 18 years old and currently studying business administration in college. :) I guess something that I will share about myself is that I am autistic! Being on the spectrum does interfere with my daily life, but it is a huge part of my personality! I’ve come...

    Where are my manners?!

    Hello, Soaping geniuses! My name is Jessie and I've been lurking and posting (a bit) and though I read through the pinned posts, I'd never introduced myself. That's just rude and inexcusable, right? :rolleyes: So here are my bonafides: I'm originally from San Francisco, but in a very...

    HI All, Traditional Introduction Post :)

    Hi There, I am new to soaping, about 6 months. I sort of went backwards and started with liquid soap and by some miracle, it was successful. Since then I have done Melt and Pour, and Hot Process soaps as well. Happened across this forum and saw some really good information. Hoping to learn and...

    Not so new, but an intro all the same

    I've been posting off and on, but I figured I should still introduce myself! I'm Nandita from Bangalore, India. I try hard to live as green and chemical-free as possible, which is why I started making soap (and my own deodorant, body lotion and toothpaste). I do all this for a hobby. I am a...

    Hey! My name is Cookie and I've been playing with MP for a couple of months. Kinda getting the hang of it, but keen to learn. The better bars I make I sell to aid the rescue dogs in my care, hence my handle. Apologies in advance if you see me spell words like favorite, colour, and so on...
