    My username is my most-used name, Melinda. My “real” name is Ermelinda (named for my Italian grandmother) but I have been called Melinda my whole life. The image is representative of me and my husband. I embrace my sweet baboo - Charlie. 48 is the year I was born.

    My name is my business! My real name is Tiffany :) I'll have to upload my avatar when I get home (at my 9-5 job) so you can see the face behind the name :))

    My name is real. My avatar is a Panda - it's black, white, Asian and, in this case, wearing the French red beret. For me, it represents being international.

    My username honors a beloved late pet.

    I’ve been looking for a way to use Teletubby Gowron since I stole him from someone a while back. It doesn’t particularly say much about me other than I like Star Trek and stealing ideas from people funnier than I am.

    I like to be constantly creative and so in addition to this newest hobby of soap making, I have had a candle making business and I create and paint custom silicone dolls. My avatar pic is of a doll I painted recently. (She has since grown hair, lol)

    Hi SoapMakingForum, I chose my username, Maevanne, because that is my first name and I like my name and figured, its a nice username. I stumbled across this forum in researching how to get rid of soda ash and age spots that I have, and still do, experience with my soap making endeavors. I really like the family atmosphere of this forum and am happy to have discovered this place. Thank you!!!

    It's a combination of my real name + "silvis", latin for "the woods". I've always been... well, not exactly a "tree-hugger" person, but I must admit that there's something truly unique about forests and trees. Also I adore witchery aesthetics. Back to soap making and other hobbies, I try to keep my crafts eco-friendly and sustainable.

    My name is - well - my name, lol. My avatar is my sweet, funny, buck, Kola, who I'm hoping will sire a kid or two per year, providing me with plenty of goats milk, for my soap, for the next several years.

    I chose this name after finding out my first name was not available (hello, Andrea!). I chose The Bubble Fairy as she's a character in a story our grandmother used to read to my twin sister and I (my picture here, taken from my Facebook page, shows as at the age of about 2 years!). The book was called The Tip Top Annual and the story was 'Louisa and the Bubble Fairy' - there were several 'Louisa' stories in the book, which would have been published in the war years.

    My late father came up with the name when I was born. I use it as my Avitar for other sites. No where near as common as my real name and a way to remember my father.

    Username: Was signing up for xbox live, my normal name was taken and I was watching a lot of that show "Heroes" at the time. Honestly, it kinda stuck.

    Avatar: A friend of mine is a fantastic artist (https://coleottart.com/) and I asked him to draw me an avatar with my dog (pembroke welsh corgi).

    My username is because I live at the edge of a forest. The picture was taken while hiking the mountain behind the house with one of my 2 border-boys.
