Hello, SMF! I've been lurking on this forum without an account for about 3 years now. Been very interested in soapmaking since I first saw Soap Queen TV's beginner series on YouTube when I was in high school, but I've never been brave enough to take the plunge. Until yesterday, that is! I've got lye and oils ordered for my first attempt at soapmaking and I'm very, very, very excited! I'm very happy to be here. I hope that I learn a lot on my soapmaking journey!
