    Thank you! It was kind of challenging to make milk soaps and take pictures at the same time! I learn quicker by 'watching' someone so thought folks would enjoy a pictorial.

    I just noticed you had a link to her site on your site. It takes a while to wade through, but it was her page that made it all finally click. I especially liked the page about making your own recipes.

    Soap is easy to make and very addicting! My first batch didn't turn out very well but I was hooked from the get go. Everyone I know who makes soap agrees about how much fun it is.
