Soapmaking is pretty popular now, you should be able to sell it all with no problem. Handmade soaps are going for about $5.95 each here in the States. :)

Hum... I may have to make a look up of that emulsifying Ointment, because my skin are really really dry all the time so maybe that's something for me too.

Thanks for visiting my TT :-)

I wouldn't have the energy for re-enactment even if it is lots of fun.
I don't know how to make soap but I know how to buy it from Lush! I just love their hand made stuff.

Here's my TT:

Glad to see you are tinkering with Vlogs. I've also had a go at that and found fireant.tv a useful site witha lot of content.

I'm impressed that you made your own soap. I think that would be a cool thing to do.

Sounds fun. I might have to try the vlog thing. I tried to put video up on my blog, but it wasn't working right, so I took it down.

Thanks for coming by my 13.

Okay, so I'm a bit late in reading the T13. I'm intrigued by your #3. Is the PBEM game akin to an RPG table-top game, only done via email? I'm just curious if it is similar to a "7th Sea" campaign that I PBEM last year. Our game involved a ton of creative writing, but I had a blast! I truly enjoy role-playing.

Don't know what "Eve-Online" is?

[chuckle] You make soap, but you don't use soap. Now how do you expect to sell your soap if you haven't sampled it's clean-ability? ;)
