Fast forward three years…

The business grew as time past – lots of shows and lots of soap.  During this time we also decided to try expanding and scaling up the business.  We took on the adventure of the Bristol Renaissance Faire during the summer of 2010.  We had a shop there every weekend for 9 weekends – rain or shine.  It was definitely an adventure!

It was also around this time my husband and I decided that we should start that ‘family’ thing that everyone is always talking about.   So early 2011 our first child was born.  It’s amazing how a small life can change yours so drastically.  Because of the nature of the business and the chemicals and timing involved in soap making, I had to take a break from soap… Gone but not forgotten… I loved making the soap I sold and even if it was for a hobby, I wanted to return to the craft once the child was old enough and I could safely begin soaping again.

Is this the end?  (I’m sure you realize that it isn’t 🙂 )
