Photo shoot

Today Teresa's husband, David Reavis, is coming out to photograph my soaps for posting online. A big step towards getting my soap out to the world. I'm excited! Tonight they & Joseph & I are going to the gala for The Celebration of Seagrove Potters, at the old Luck's cannery. Should be a fun night. No biodiesel soap yet, as we're still trying to figure out the best way to filter the glycerine prior to using it.

Annual Pottery Shopping Adventure

My friend Teresa and I had our annual pottery shopping day yesterday. We found treasures for ourselves and for gift-giving. I found several soap dishes, which I plan to use for picture-taking for my soaps. Teresa and I have been friends for 36 years. We've lost track of how many years we've had our pottery shopping day. We know our first trip to Seagrove was in the mid 70's, while we were in high school. We came with several other friends, and remember having a picnic at the old church in Whynot. My, how time does fly! Yesterday, the weather and the colors in the trees were absolutely gorgeous.

New Beginnings

Thanks to Meredith of Whynot Pottery, I've created this blog. Today I've been researching making soap incorporating glycerin from the biodiesel process. I've recently been offered some biodiesel glycerin to play with, and hope to make my first batch this Saturday. I'm excited! This will be a bit different from any I've made in the past, so I'll see what I can create. With the first returns of the election rolling in, it feels to be a good time to create new things.
