soapmaking 101


my first soap making workshop. a bit scary but loads of fun. finding the creative spirit in others is more fun for me than i imagined. some people worried that they might screw up but i knew everybody would make wonderful soaps (though in all honestly, i think oscar’s pumice soap could scrape the hide off a cow’s ass). he was a great sport about it though and everyone got to take home enough soap to last a few months! good feed-back and looking forward to the next workshop. if everyone is this much fun and we get to laugh this much, i think i'm going to love teaching.
