I've been lurking around here for a while, so I think it's time to introduce myself, since I already feel I know most of you already. My name is Christine, but everyone calls me Kie. I'm from Norway and my interest in soap making started around 2005. I had lots of fun making soap for a couple of years, then I stopped. I don't really know why, busy life with kids and pets I guess. A couple of months ago I felt the need to have a hobby again, and tried crochet , which I really sucked at. Then I remembered how much I enjoyed soap making and started visiting forums like this and watching some soapers on youtube to refresh my "skills". Now I have finally ordered the supplies I need, and I can't wait to get started again. It's really helpful to be here and learn from all the experts and share the successes and failures of soap making.
