Hi there! My name is Gretchen B and I've been soaping since 1998 (with a 6 year hiatus when I had little ones in the 2000's)! I absolutely love it!!! I make it for myself and my family, but also sell too. Not a lot, mostly enough to break even. I have made mostly CP soap, but also just started making liquid soap. I've just recently branched into more lotions and lip products. Today I made a nice lip butter and lip scrub set for Valentine's Day. I haven't belonged to a forum for YEARS so I'm thankful to have a group to ask questions of and learn from.
