My wife started making soap and bath bombs a couple of years ago.
She was bored one Friday afternoon and decided to melt all of the tiny hotel soaps the people I live with and I had in our junk drawer.
The soaps blended together nicely and the fragrance wasn’t awful either; and my wife had a blast making the new soap bars and she enjoyed absolutely working with her hands. Most afternoons back then, my wife sat in an office in front of a laptop all day. She rarely had an opportunity to do something creative. Things are a lot odd now and our family, my wife and I make soap full time, and all of us have a small artisan store that sells soaps and bath bombs and hand lotions. My wife quit her job several years ago and the people I live with and I decided to use all of our retirement savings to open the soap boutique. Things were slow until the people I live with and I hired someone to build a website for the business. All of us hired one guy to do the job, although he didn’t understand our concept, as he came up with a design based on our wants and needs. I didn’t enjoy his concept or design. Both of us wanted something more subtle and soft. Both of us tried to get it right, however the people I live with and I ended up finding someone else to complete the rest of the work. Both of us still use the same website designer when the people I live with and I need to make updates to the website. The lady does a real superb job and she does not charge a fortune. She has her own small business that concentrates on web design, SEO, and internet advertising! We’re both supporting other small corporations in the area.
