Soap Making: Cleaning Up with Flint Handmade!

We had an awesome time making soap on Sunday!  This was our last of three Handmade for the Holidays Creativity Workshops funded by Flint Club. We love you, Flint Club (!

Ali Misner of Alexandria's Soap Garden ( taught everyone how to make all natural soap. Check out the pics!

Ali giving instructions before we get started. :)

Safety first when working with lye!

Christa bought the cutest crocheted bat from Sarah Mascara while we waited for the lye to reach the right temperature.

Amy, Kathy and Michelle (l-r) prep the soap molds by lining them with plastic bags.

Ali carefully pours the lye into the pot while Christa stirs and Becky watches.

Susanna, Dawn, Beth and Jennifer (l-r) smile for the camera while stirring their soap to mix the natural oils with the lye. We see you sticking your tongue out, Susanna! ;)

Thank You, Flint Club! We all really appreciate the Opportunity Knocks grant you awarded to Flint Handmade. Lots of people got to learn new skills and express their creativity because of YOU! :)

  2. I had so much fun and it was so easy that I'm looking into making my own soap.

  3. I have always wanted to make my own handmade soap. I would love to be involved in a workshop like this!
    Good luck all with making there own soap.
