Goat's Milk Soap with Gently Exfoliating Poppy Seeds

I just love this soap. It started as a custom order for my dad (who I have successfully hooked on my soaps so he no longer uses that awful store bought detergent stuff), and I made a few extra bars. I'm trying to put more "manly" products in my store, as well as offering fragrance oil free items. This soap contains powdered nutmeg for color (with a touch of turmeric sprinkled on top) as well as the exfoliating poppy seeds. It has the slightest touch of spicy scent to it, but I left it otherwise unscented. Great for guys as well as the ladies, this goat's milk soap is nice and gentle.

I will be listing it for sale in my shop soon!

On a more personal note, I have come to face one of the single hardest choices I've had to make in my life up to this point. I had really hoped the outcome would be different, but my hand has almost been forced in the matter. This is going to make life very...interesting...(and hard) so please be patient with me while I figure out what in the world I'm going to do next (and how I'm going to survive).

(This has been edited. I goofed and listed the soap as olive oil when it's actually goat's milk. My apologies!)

I just moved my Lemon Oatmeal Soap to my shop! I'm in the process of moving items that I don't care to renew again on Etsy to other venues...doesn't hurt to spread your name around. ;) Currently listing on the site is free, which is a big bonus, and featuring your items is also free at this time. I get decent views, the listing process is pretty simple and fast (especially if you just copy and paste your items before they expire), and the price is great. My Artfire is already full, and at this time I cannot justify spending the money on a Premier account, so madeitmyself offers me another place to list things. Also, the commission is only 3%.

I'll be adding more soon, so stop by often!

Say hi to Dickens (as in he's a little troublemaker). He is one of 3 kittens we saved from our horrible and stupid neighbors. He loves to sit on my chest while I work on my laptop, and he often sleeps there too. His momma was a little gray stray kitty and all 3 babies look just like her. She had 6 kittens total, which is amazing because she was super teeny herself! Two of them don't have full tails, probably because they didn't have enough room in the womb to fully develop. Sadly, they wouldn't surrender the other 3 to us. They were pretty bad off when we got them, their little tummies were all distended and they couldn't have been even 5 weeks old, but they are doing much better now. They still have belly issues, but they are nothing like they were two weeks ago thank goodness. I was worried that one of them wouldn't make it, but he pulled through and is now the chubbiest of them all. That makes 5 kittens in the house, all looking for good homes. I hope we can find them loving people to be with, because we are packed to the max with critters at this point!

Another feature!

This time in a magazine. :D I'm so excited I could do a little dance because it's my very first one.

You can find it here: Modern Handmade Child

Who knows where a sample sold can lead?
