    Greetings from the Shenandoah Valley!

    I made my first soap three weeks ago - a cocoa and peppermint body bar recipe I found on the internet. My co-workers loved it! I do not have a creative bone in my body but stayed up that night and gave my soap a name and logo and label and wrapped them - really cute. Right now I am only doing...
