I just gave the Arizona Soap Gathering Conference Keynote and I am so happy that it’s done and over with.
The reality of speaking in front of a packed room of 160 people is very different than what I envisioned when I was writing my speech! Ack!
The group was appropriately warmed up though and they laughed at my jokes (thank you thank you thank you) and even asked questions. I think it helped that Deborah from Wild Woman Soaps gave out our soapmaking DVD’s and lotion booklet to people who asked questions. I wish I could claim that idea as my own but no, that was her idea!
Right now, we’re watching some really interesting demonstrations on melt and pour and making room sprays. I love learning new techniques and tricks. It’s amazing how many ways there are to make a bar of soap!
