This week in Soap Making…

Michelle from Tierra Verde Handmade Soaps shares with us an interview she did recently about the topic of “handmade”.

It got me thinking…what does handmade mean to you?

On that note…

I love handmade gifts.

Jess from Sweet Pine Soaps has a great list of handmade gift ideas. I’m all about handmade gifts for the holidays. Give me some baked cookies, a knitted scarf or a handmade card over anything store bought.

Is Butter Better?  Emily of Shieh Design Studio talks body butter.  You either hate it or love it.  I’m a fan of body butter in the winter or when my feet need a good moisture treatment in the summer.  Are you a fan of body butter?

 Susan Barclay-Nichols at Point of Interest has a new eBook, Formulating and Creating Lotions! Her eBooks are wonderful and the purchase of them benefits a youth program.

This past week was Cyber Monday. I saw plenty of sales, free shipping and other great offers. Did you run a sale? How did it go?

And that’s it for this week’s roundup. Happy Friday and Have a great weekend!
