I'm a newbie soaper too. I've only made 4 batches so far, goofed up on one of those and had to rebatch. But the rebatch turned out well, and smells really good. But I decided real fast that I DON'T like rebatching. Way too time consuming. I'm planning on making a couple more batches this weekend. :D

Right here, silly!
It'll be 2 years for me this coming weekend, and I've loved every minute of it. No matter how many soaps I've made, I'm still like a little kid at Christmas-time when I unmold each new batch. :)

6 months of reading tons of soapmaking books and now 6 months of making CP. It's very addictive!

About a year for me.

It is still so overwhelming. There are so many different oils and fragrances and colorants that can be used, and I haven't begun to scratch the surface of it all.

making soap

on and off since 1992. there is so much more info, techniques, and products available than when i started cp. the most fabulous is www.soapcalc i feel like a mad chemist. fragrances are much better too.

soapmaking is my "therapy"! such a sweet addiction! i get an attitude change every time i walk into my workshop!
