Howdy, y'all! I just joined the forum, and it's nice to see all the activity! I'm Charmy, and I'm from the beautiful mountains of Virginia. I recently started soaping after a long time spent researching. Honestly, it took me ages to get up the courage to make my first batch of soap. I was terrified to use the lye, but I finally have my first batch under my belt, and look forward to making more!
