I should be writing this post in five days but I'm a little excited. I could wait but I don't want to.
September 17 marks my one year blogiversary. When I began reading blogs about five years ago, I never would have thought I would write a blog myself. I was a lurker, rarely even leaving comments on the blogs I read. Last summer, when I made the decision to start a blog, I don't really know what I was thinking. I think perhaps I was looking for another creative outlet while I stayed home with my two boys. Well, I certainly found that and so much more. It may sound cliche. It certainly won't be unique because I have read it written by the writers of many of my favourite blogs. Through this little space I have carved here, I have found a community I didn't realize existed. Through your kind comments you have encouraged me. Through your words you have inspired me. And I'd like to thank you for that.
As a way of saying "thank you", I would like to offer one of you a bar of my hand made soap. A bar of your choice. Wander through my Etsy shop. Get an idea for the type of soap I like to make but keep in mind that my stock is a little low at the moment. August was a busy month. In the last week of September, I will have several new batches ready and you can pick from some of my new soaps: Groovy, Green Clay and Tiger Tail are just a few.
To enter, just leave a comment here. May be tell me about something you found unexpectedly or just say hi. No geographical boundaries here. I am pretty sure hand made soap is welcome everywhere. If you have never left a comment, now is the time to do it.
The contest will remain open until Friday, September 17 at 8 p.m. EST. I will announce the winner shortly thereafter.
Thanks for reading.
