Welcome to Soap Queen! I’m Anne-Marie: CEO and founder of Bramble Berry Soap Making Supplies, mother, wife, passionate crafter and voracious reader. Soap Queen is a place for me to share soapy projects, offer resources and inspiration for fellow crafters, and share business advice from the trenches.
My passion for business and creating started at a young age; I ran a small business breeding hamsters while in high school and started making and selling soap at 16. I continued selling soap at craft fairs throughout and after college. After the success of selling handmade soap, I recognized this could be an amazing business opportunity for others as well. I started Bramble Berry when I was 20 years old and haven’t looked back.
My first book, Soap Crafting, was published in 2013 and my second book is due in February 2016. My newest venture is a subscription crafting box called Handmade Beauty Box. In addition to business, I sit on a variety of non-profit boards and financially give back to the community.
I currently reside in Bellingham, WA with my adorable entrepreneur husband (he runs an engineering firm), beautiful toddler and baby sister. My life is full, busy and sometimes hectic, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Want to connect? You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and on my YouTube channel, Soap Queen TV.
