Long time lurker, first time poster from Portland, Oregon. Been making soap for about 8 years, mostly for friends, family and as thank you gifts for the volunteers who help run the cooperative preschool where I teach. While often encouraged to sell, I have yet to take the leap excepting a few school craft fairs. Now that I'm a fairly experienced soaper, might be able to contribute, or might be too shy. Time will tell.

Welcome! I love visiting family in Portland! And especially love the Viking Soul Food food truck (although, ahem, my lefse is better). Got any photos of your soap to post?

I live in a little neighborhood called St Johns, far from that cart pod, though I just checked out there menu and it looks worth a trip this weekend, will try the lefse.
Not sure how to post pictures, mine are all too big.

You may have to reduce the size of your images. But I think if you start an album in the media section, the software reduces it for you. If not, you should get a message to manually reduce it.

Here is a thread addressing adding images. The thread is an older one, prior to the most recent upgrade to the SMF forum, but I think for the most part, the instructions still apply.

If that doesn't help, you can post a question in the SMF Announcements, Comments, Help & Rules forum to get more current instructions.

Welcome to the forum from another Portlander! I'm in NE. I'd love to get together with other local soapers one day when we're past all this Covid stuff. Non-soaper's eyes start to glaze over if I talk too much soap! :nonono:
