Good Evening Everyone :)

I joined the forum several months ago, but then went thru an unexpected move back to my old home that had been rented out.....and then needed a heavy dose of TLC (and still working on it) And then there's the ole job in retail during the holidays. I just haven't had the time to really hang out any.

I had a soap making business a few years ago, but after the divorce things just seemed to implode, and not with any good bubbles lol. Anyway, life is life, it's all good now.

It's been 5 years since I've been in business, and I've been working very hard to pull it all back together. Annnd after 5 years will probably need to ride my little bike with my "training wheels" for a bit. I can see that many things have changed in the business since I first began back in 2003. :think:

Hopefully over the coming "slow" winter months at work I'll have a little more time to participate and get to know everyone.

Good Morning Everyone :)

Sitting here with a cup of hot coffee, on a cold and snowy morning in the Appalachian mountains. I'm off work today with a ton of errands to do, and thought I'd take a minute to look at the forum.

I just wanna say "Thanks" to each of you for your warm welcome. It is a bit scary, trying to start over, and while I wouldn't wish misfortune on anyone, it's nice to know I'm not in the boat alone lol.

I really do appreciate your words of encouragement. :mrgreen:

Thanks Susie :mrgreen:

I made soooo many mistakes when I first started making soap years ago, and not so much the soaping part ( yes I had a few disasters, have to tell you about the moon ball sometime lol ) but wow, I was lousy at the business end, and I had a lot of difficulty staying on task. There were just SO MANY things I wanted to make, and try and experiment with.

So in the end, I did learn to stay a little more focused...kinda ;) lol

And now, I get to go forward with all that learning under my belt, staying focused on my strengths, and trying to start off on the right foot with the business part.
