Tennessee Soap and Candle Social

I’m so grateful, humbled, nervous and excited to be speaking at the Tennessee Soap and Candle Social in Chattanooga on March 24th. First of all, I love Tennessee! I’ve been to Memphis once and Nashville twice.  I went to Graceland and Beale Street in Memphis (my favorite place on Beale is A. Schwab. I found some of my soap dishes for my display table there) and all the touristy places in Nashville, including a few performances at the Grand Ole Opry (I got see my favotire Lorrie Morgan!)  There is something charming about southern cities.  The people are friendly and welcoming. The weather is warm and sunny. And this time, I’ll be spending the weekend with soap makers, my favorite kind of people.

My friend Rachel owns Music City Suds and is the organizer of the event. She put out a request for speakers and I volunteered. Speaking in public makes me a little nervous and uncomfortable. I’ve been trying to push out of my comfort zone, so I said yes.  I’m speaking about saving money by utilizing that last bit of soap batter and soap scraps. I’ll be joined by other amazing speakers including Charlene Simon, Holly Port, Roslyn Johnson,  Bethany Petri, Brooke Stant and Kayla Fioravanti. Some of the workshops include candle making, event planning and aromatherapy. There will be talks about running a business too. I’m going to need to bring a large suitcase because there’s also time for “garage sale-ing” (everyone brings soap and candles items they no longer need to sell) and vendor shopping. I’ll be selling my soap visors.

I’m so grateful for the opportunity to speak and travel to Chattanooga. I love seeing old soap friends and look forward to meeting new ones. I have a feeling I’ll love Chattanooga too.


Yours in Gratitude,
