I am a soapmaker, entrepreneur, afficionado of aromatherapy, wife, mother and homemaker.  I wear many hats and although sometimes things get hectic and frustrating, I enjoy them all.  Just as though you may put on a different fashion hat (or shirt or shoes or whatever) to reflect your mood or your personality, the different “hats” in my work and my life allow me to express the many facets of my personality and who I am.

I have been making soap for about 9 years now, have run several different small business over the years for probably a total of 14 years, a wife for almost 17 years and a mom for over 15.  Making a home means different things to different people and for me I have been making a “home” for me and/or my family ever since I left the home my mother made for us.

My home currently is in a log house out in the country on about 5 acres.  We have a dog, two cats and four chickens.  There are some fruit trees and a very small garden that I enjoy “putting up” from — jams, chutneys, pickles, etc.

I wanted to give you a little insight into where I come from and where I am at.  I hope you find some things of interest on this blog and that you come back to visit often.
