Hi, I’m Elaine and I love crafting. I love using my artistic ability to create beautiful works of art out of everyday items.

A few years ago, I went to the local craft store with my youngest son looking for supplies to make a candle. On our way to the candle section, we passed the soap molds and fragrance oils. My son turned to me and asked, “Have you ever wanted to make soap?” Truthfully, I hadn’t – I didn’t even know that was a thing. But I thought, “What the heck, let’s give it a shot!”

We bought everything we needed to make a batch of melt and pour soaps; soap base, coloring, molds and fragrance oils. We brought it all home, put it down, got distracted (as often happens in a busy home) and it wasn’t until a year later when I found the bag of supplies that I realized we’d never made the soaps! It was then that I took the bag to the kitchen, put on some music and began making my first batch of soap.

Well, that first batch wasn’t my best work, but I was hooked! I find it so relaxing I call it my Zen time. It’s my chance to express myself artistically and to create products that are not only useful but are good for you too.

I encourage you to try for yourself. Select a bar (or two) and bring a little joy to your daily routine.
