My first pallet

With the holiday season coming up I needed to order more organic oils for my soap making.  After I placed a very large order, a company rep emailed me to say they were sending the oils on a pallet.  I decided to take pictures, because, hey, this is a milestone, right??

My first soap making class

LaShonda

I had been making soap about 10 years when I received a catalog for The Open Center in NYC.  I was looking through it and saw there was a class on cold process soap making.  When I wanted to learn how to make soap, I went to my local library and took out a book on the subject.  There were no classes that I could find in 1998.  But even though I knew how to make soap, I signed up for the class.  I figured there was always something new to learn.  The class was from 10-4 on a Saturday. I walked into a room of about 30 people. In the room were three people who would become good friends, although I didn’t know it at the time.  Deloris of Daisy May Natural Soap, Rosie of Brooklyn Bath, and our instructor, LaShonda Tyree the Handmade Soap Coach.
