Hello everyone!

As the title suggests, I've been creeping around here for quite a bit (almost a year, actually) and figured it's finally time to sign up and introduce myself.

My name is Krista and I've been soaping since last October. I live in Buffalo, NY with my boyfriend and our Pibble mix, Fireball.

I came to soap making after years of making other bath and body products for personal use and it quickly became my favorite. I try to make my soaps as "natural" as possible, using EOs and natural colorants. I use quotations, because, really, has there ever been a more subjective term? That and the idea of making my own lye is reeeaally far from tempting, so lab created it is!

Thanks for having me and for the wealth of knowledge you've been sharing with me unknowingly!:smile:

Hi Krista! Welcome, I lurked for a while too, but the waters are very warm once you jump in :) Isn't it amazing how much information there is here? What is a Pibble?

I'm hoping Pibble Mix is another (and much sweeter) term for Pitt Bull mix......and I'm going to - ahem - appropriate it for our Georgie Girl!

Yes, Willow is absolutely correct! Doesn't that suit them so much better? Not that there should be a negative association with the name Pit Bull, but...

Welcome! I lurked for awhile too and joined a few days ago. My friends have had a couple of pit bulls--both were really sweat and the reason I finally came around to dogs. In the right hands any dog can be an angel. But in the wrong hands. . . .

Aw, sweet pibble. What an adorable doggy smile. I love it when they do that. I used to have a tenant who had a pit, had to go into her house when she was at work. I made my handyman go with me, we entered w/him first, carrying a stick. To find her rolling on the floor, tongue hanging out, belly up. All she wanted was some loving!

That's too cute! They can definitely be intimidating, but in my experience are mostly noise. Fireball will bark his face off when someone comes to the door, but as soon as they're inside he's all butt wiggles. Worst guard dogs ever lol

Your pibble is adorable! Love the mix.

Hey and welcome! I much prefer large dogs to small ones. I've only ever been bit by yappy little dogs.(I was a home health and hospice nurse, so I went into LOTS of houses with dogs.)

Welcome to you and your pibble love! I don't think I've met a pit I didn't like so kudos to awesome pups!

Hi Krista! Now there's 2 of us, lol. I think you're probably the 3rd Krista spelled with a "K" I've met. I've seen lots with a "Ch" or "C" but the "K" is few and far between. That just makes us unique!

Sorry, I was stuck on Krista, lol. Welcome to the forum!

Ks are definitely the best Kristas! You're the reason I'm not just KristaL, thought that might get confusing. Lol

Pibbles rock! Love, love that word -- thanks for sharing!

My Ocho is a playful "pit bull in a china shop" kinda guy. I bet he and Fireball would have a blast together, playing as only pibbles can.

How funny! I don't know about anyone else but I certainly would have been taken aback by your posts with that user name. My middle name is Lynn, lol, so thanks for going with Marie! I really like to avoid confusion leading to brain bleeds when ever I can......
