    Hey everyone!

    I'm new to soap making--never made any myself...yet. Always wanted too, but I've held off because it seems very intimidating. But I think I'm finally going to do it next month.

    I've always liked the idea of crafting your own soaps and I've seen some amazing looking soap--there are some really creative and talented people out there! There are a few reasons that I have wanted to try a hand at it myself--I like knowing what goes in the products that I use, I love buying handmade soaps, and after using handmade soaps for a while now, going back to store bought soap was a disaster. I couldn't stand the feel of it on my skin both in and out of the shower. So...here I am, looking to start my own soap making journey.

    So if anyone has any advice for a total newbie, I'd love to hear it. :)

    Thanks and hope to "see" you all around the boards.
