Even though yesterday was Easter, it felt more like Christmas on Emmet Street! I got a new toy for the soap lab: a soap planer and beveler from CDA Soap Works. I tried it as soon as I opened the box and I absolutely love it. It creates nice flat sides and beveled edges that will give my soaps a polished finish. It’s going to be very useful as I prep for my first maker event this year: Mom & Pop Shoppe sponsored by Crafty Mart. Mark your calendars to come to Musica in Akron and see me on April 25th!
