So I went to the soap making class at the library last night. The lady was a local soap maker, her website is: http://www.longfamilyfarmsoaps.com/

It was very interesting. I've read a lot about soap making, but it really helps to see someone actually make some soap. It also made me realize that I probably don't have the budget right now to make soap! She said we could email her for a list of her suppliers though, so I'll probably do that, and look into how much it would cost at the least. The thing is that you have to buy basic supplies, so you have the cost of that before you ever even know if it's definitely something you want to do.
I would certainly need to do a lot of research and saving before I could start something like that, and even then I'm not sure I'd have time.

Everyone in the class gets one of the bars of soap she made last night, which is nice! It was a mint soap in the shape of a gift box...very cute!

Blogger says that "soapmaking" should be two words...I don't really know!

In other news...people keep getting blogs! :) Mom has one now: http://catintheadage.blogspot.com/

She started out with a Wordpress one, but neither of us could figure it out...so it's going to be Blogger! Because if neither of us know how to use it, we're sunk...unless Dad has time to help us! The thing is, we're both fairly good at computer stuff, but totally don't understand html.

So, another blog for my readers to go read!

I'm looking forward to getting to know you better!

Hi, Alice...I think I found yours and your sisters' through the Lily Press website. There's a blog on there isn't there? It was quite a while ago (I just now got my links updated) so I don't really remember! :)

Natalie said...

By the way, how do you track who's linked to you? I've always wondered how to do that, but couldn't figure it out!

Alice said...

Oh, yeah, there's a blog there, even though we haven't done anything with it in AGES! I really need to do something about that, since all my sisters are either married or engaged now--I guess posting on Lilypress falls to me! :-) Anyway, it's nice to meet you! We should e-mail or something!

Um, if you just go to www.shinystat.com, you can get the little free html thing for your blog template, and it looks at all that stuff. You can click on the little tab called "ShinyStat" on the right-hand side of my blog and see if you want it. I think it's really helpful, and a good safety precaution.

Just plug "link:http://www.natalie-elizabeth.blogspot.com/" into Google...

Okay, I did the Google thing and nobody's linked to me, but I'd still like some sort of site meter thing that shows how many visits I get.
I tried the Shinystat thing, but I seem to have a mental block on this or something...I tried one once before, but I couldn't get it to work either! Aaahhh...

Anyway...Alice: email, I don't want to post it on here, but if you want to leave me a comment with your email address, I won't publish the comment. Or I can do the same on your's...
