I decided I wanted to give my father-in-law soap for his birthday. Is this a spoiler? He doesn't read my blog, so it's probably okay. Anywho, time to drag out the supplies! I had some new colors and scents arrive earlier this week that I had been waiting for, so it was time to play … Continue reading Mint and Sage Soap!
