    I mentioned this back in my introduction thread. My name is Stephen, and anyone with this name has said, "Stephen with a PH," countless times. As I was meandering through the internet one day, I ran across this image and it tickled my fancy. The caption read, my friend was asked for his name at McDonald's and replied, "Stephen with a PH.":

    Hi, lol It was suggested to me to come and post here, as I have been doing this a couple of months, and I had posted questions in another place on this board. I was so busy reading up everything I can, it never occurred to me to post here.

    My name: Happy ! to be soap making, it gives me the biggest thrill!
    2018, this is the year that I signed up for this board.

    My Avatar, me being happy with a soap bubble!

    Hi, I picked my initials TNF. I had been doing some reading recently about military history and ran accross the alphabet used and so I picked the call signs for those letters as my username. As far as my Avatar, it’s just a plain old picture of me, pink hair and all. I guess you can say I am finding myself and PINK is my signature color! I have been researching CP for about a year and Just got the courage upmo make my first batch in Nov. I was so excited afterward, I made a second one. The Holidays got in my way, but I did giv my family each a bar of my handmade soap for Christmas! I have been doing some traveling but I cant wait to get back to trying more things!

    Hi eveyone. Really enjoyed reading your interesting stories behind your names and avatars.

    User name: Saffron as it is my favourite spice....love the flavour and perfume it imparts to food..... reminds me of my mum's cooking. I use it in rice, tea, iced summer drinks etc.
    Avatar: A picture I took of an interesting cloud formation in Stratford-upon-Avon where I worked at the time.

    I've been a member here since 2016, but didn't really occur to me to introduce myself. Been making CP and HP soap for a few years now, using only 'natural' ingredients. I know, I know........ but you know what I mean :) My extremely talented and generous friend, Amanda, introduced me to soapmaking and I was immediately hooked. Read and researched a ton and I only use my own recipes - mainly using raw goatmilk (fresh from Kelly the Goat which Amanda keeps in her back yard).

    Mine's not that interesting. I just used an online alien name generator to generate some possible nicknames for social media accounts and what not, and Moebym was the one I liked the most out of them. I selected it because my first name begins with M, but that's where the similarities end.

    As for my avatar, I made it using Androidify, an online avatar creator that lets you customize the Android mascot however your heart desires. I chose it because it's cute, and a rough approximation of how I normally look and dress.

    Mine is so boring. It is just my name :) With "w" at the end from what used to be my last name. I used to go my nermal in old forums but everyone used to think I was a dude. Maybe I should go back to that. It was more interesting.

    And as for the avatar. Don't really do them so I picked a picture of a new candle of which I am proud.

    I got 'Flyjunkie' years ago, back in the 1990's. a Sporting Goods store that i worked in the Fishing dept. a fellow employee noticed that i spent a lot of days off Flyfishing and she made the statement that I was addicted to flyfishing, that i was a junkie, a Flyjunkie.. the nickname stuck and thats' been it for over 25 years.
    The photo is myself. I was playing around with lighting effects and seeing how my digital camera worked.. got a few interesting ones.

    It was the closest thing to soaping I had done at the time, I ended up didn't some of that freshly ground turmeric in one of my batches.

    Oh, my username is a play on my daughter's nickname. Her name starts with LiLi

    My user name is my usual social media tag - my YouTube name etc.

    And the pic is mostly because I signed up at work so didn't have access to any thing that want online so I picked my favorite tsumtsum as I'm a huge Disney nerd :) and Winnie the Pooh and friends are my favourite

    My user name is SeattleMartin

    I am not a bird, my name is Martin and I bet you can guess where I live.

    and my avatar is a zero because "Zero" is my gaming name, I use zero synthetic ingredients (so far anyways, idk, I might allow some synthetic versions of naturals eventually, but don't hold your breath) and I can't decide if I want to use my ugly FB pic

    Hi I am new and don't know if I should even post here.

    My username is HobbyMom because I have done and still do a lot of hobbies. I have never sold anything that I made. All my hobbies are for fun I don't want to spoil it with business. CP soaping making is my newest obsession.

    The photo: In real life my name is Vicki. I am a stay at home wife and mom. Family is everything to me. I love traveling, hiking, planning, painting, and collecting foreign currency with my children. We like to study the places we get currency from.
