My next soapmaking class is coming up this Sunday, March 30th.
Soapmaking–Better than Store Bought
Discover the benefits and fun of making and using handmade soap. Not only is it better for your skin but it also allows you to be creative since you select the ingredients, colors, fragrances and shapes. Learn to overcome your fear of working with lye (an essential ingredient in all soap) as well as important safety precautions as you learn to produce a batch of soap. NOTE: Each student will take home one bar of soap.
Class Number: R1020B Sun 2-5pm Mar 30

For only $5 to cover materials, you can create a custom bar of soap with the scent, color, glitter and toy you pick out. I’ll have butterflies, ballerinas, lizards, puppies & farm animals at the very least. You can also bring your own waterproof object to embed in the soap. The object needs to be less than 2.25 inches wide, 3 inches tall, .75 inches deep to fit into the mold. After you pour the soap, you need about 20 minutes for it to set, and you can use it later that day, if you like!
I’ll have handmade soap, lotion, perfume & lip balm at my booth. Come and see locally created cards, jewelery, clothing & pottery.

Hey there, Sampler fans! The week is almost over, and, here in Sampler Town, we’re getting ready to begin assembly for the September Sampler. Hooray! But first, I want to take a last look at summer, and at the August Sampler! I’m generally pretty picky about scents, which makes it pretty easy to shop for everything from perfume to laundry detergent. The solid lotion bars at feto soap, however, come in such an array of delicious smells that picking a favorite – or even which one to try next – a real challenge. If you happened to receive one in your August Sampler, perhaps you will be good enough to to pass along your recommendations?
It did cross my mind to try out all the different scents while the lotion bars were in the office, but, alas, we do have a policy about not including used skin care products in The Sampler. Go figure! If you visit fetosoap.com, you’ll find lotion bars available in: Cake, Lavender Vanilla, Sparkling Citrus, Plumeria, White Tea and Ginger, Yuzu, Ginger Lime, China Rain, and Chocolate. There’s even an “Unscented” option, which, though not as exciting to discuss, is a genius idea for moisture-loving males and anybody sensitive to scents. Today at The Sampler site, Alison is asking “If you won $100 this afternoon, what would you do with it?” My answer? I’d buy a rainbow of lotion bars from feto soap! So if you should win $100 today, or just have a little extra change in your pocket, and you want to go shopping, be sure to check out our wonderful Contributors and their creations! GO SAMPLER! xoxo, Jennicakes
…for a chance to win feto soap‘s edible roll-on parfums+ other handmade goodies. All you have to do is leave a comment about any of the shops listed at the modish blog to enter.
