    Hi to everyone here!

    I just started making my own soap and it's so much fun. I'm glad I gave it a chance despite not having an ideal place or time to make them. I decided to join this forum because, well, it helped me just by reading it (thanks to everyone here), and I guess it would help to be able to post as well and ask if I have any questions.

    Anyway, I just wanted to make an introductory thread and say hi.

    I've heard it is very beautiful there. Maybe one day I'll see for myself.

    Welcome to the forum - looking forward to seeing some of your beautiful creations. Post some pics along the way!

    Thank you! I'll definitely post some pictures in the future. I already made 3 CP soaps and they look good - and I hope will be good to use too.

    Thanks, everyone!

    Will do, thank you. I'm glad I found this place, too.

    That's good to hear! It's such an interesting and fun hobby, I can't believe I didn't even hear about it before.

    Welcome to the forum!
    Many great teachers here and probably more information than a library.
    I suspect there are several walking books here from how much I have been taught so far.

    You'll find very few of us soapers that feel we have ideal places or times. ;) Welcome!

    This is much, much better than a library! You can interact with people here, and get multiple answers without having to dig through volumes of information. And there are many opinions/options. Not all options are right for you, but they will help someone out there. You also get to benefit from others' questions and troubleshooting, which is invaluable. I learned more from people's "problem soaps" than they did, I am sure. You also have the challenges, which help teach techniques that I would not learn any other way.

    Thanks to all of you!

    Just browsing through the forum for a while, I did not only find a lot of great information, but it also seems there are a lot of people here with a great sense of humor. I'm really glad I joined.
