so very happy and honored to announce that I will be a "guest blogger"
blogging from the 2013 Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild Conference that will
be taking place in beautiful Raleigh, North Carolina. The HSG
Conference is an annual event that draws attendees from all over the
country. I'm so looking forward to the great information, meeting new
friends (most that I've only known from blogging for years), and learning
Myself and Jean Horn of SoapArt will be going in the stead of Anne-Marie due to the impending Bramble Girl's arrival. We wish Anne-Marie the loveliest and speediest of "special deliveries" and "Thank You" so much for an amazing opportunity!
