Giveaway by Chippewa Creek! (this giveaway is now closed)

You asked for handmade soap and I went on the search for it. This amazing picture below caught my eye right away!

I myself had never used handmade soap until a few months ago and it didn't take me long to become hooked. You just cannot find the smell and beauty of handmade soap in a regular bar of soap. One other thing I have learned about handmade soaps are that they seem to last a lot longer too.

Chippewa Creek sent me a bar of her Nana's House soap and as soon as I opened the package my 4 year old said "Oh Momma, that is the best smelling soap ever!" and I have to say I agree with her. The soap does not only smell good but it will look so nice in my bathroom and it's soft to the touch. I also couldn't believe how fast she shipped it and it came in perfect condition.


This is what they had to say about their shop:

How long has your Etsy shop been open? I became a member of Etsy in January 2009, but my first listing was the end of February 2010. I mainly sell at craft fairs, but I decided to give Etsy a try! I may not need to do the craft fairs!

How did you start making handmade soap? I've had the urge to make soap for 15 years! But this last year, after being laid off, I researched it more until I really understood the science of it. I make it using the Hot Process Method - where it can be used as soon as it's hardened in the mold. I made my first batch in October 2009 and sold it at many craft shows in the fall. I didn't realize there was no other handmade soap in my area!! I've had many sales from those people that purchased it at the craft shows and through my blog shop.

Do you take custom orders? Of course I will take custom orders! Art (and handmade soap is an art) is in the eye of the beholder! Many people have an idea of what they want, but they don't know how to get there. By putting their ideas and my knowledge together, we can get there! Be it soap or woodworking, there are no extra steps in custom work. It all had a beginning and a beautiful end!

What is your favorite scent? My favorite scent at the moment is Nana's House. It has such a warm and inviting smell - with vanilla, apple, cinnamon all mingles together. My grandson came in the house when my first batch was in the mold and asked me, "Nana, why does you house smell so good?". That's how we got the name Nana's House, also.

Buy It - Chippewa Creek has just started filling their shop with amazing things. Make sure you keep checking back to see what the have added. They offer handmade soaps and woodworking.

Win It - Chippewa Creek has been kind enough to offer one of my readers a $20 gift certificate towards anything in their shop. This is before shipping! Mix and match soaps or towards any of the wood products.
