I'd Like To Say This About That

Amy Warden, of Great Cakes Soapworks, decided to run a Best Handmade Soap Blogs Award and The Soap Bar was nominated for four out of six categories. I am speechless. It is an honor being nominated and it feels amazing to be recognized. I want to share my thanks and tell you that you all have made The Soap Bar what it is, really. I started it and you helped me bring it here.

Thank you.

I urge you to go to Amy's blog and vote, for any of the blogs! All of them are wonderful. You should check them all out. I learned about a few I didn't know existed and I am thrilled to have them on my list of places to go to see talent, new ideas, other people's bursts of creativity and (hee hee) more soap porn material. Yay that! I also don't see this as a competition, really. I feel this more as a bonding with other bloggers and I wish we could all sit around a big breakfast table and have coffee and biscuits and jam and hang out.

Again, I urge you to look at all the blogs and continue learning and loving and growing and vote because as of 10:15 am, there are only 95 voters and there probably should be more. This is international, baby.

That is awesome Jo! I have a request... for one of your upcoming soap porn posts... could you maybe do a honey showcase? I am on a real honey soap kick... Thank you!!! xoxo Jen

I agree Joanna - it was great to find new blogs that I didn't know about too! I just adore reading soapy blogs, could read them all day (with a big cup of tea and a choccie biscuit!).

Jen's suggestion is timely - just made a new soap with Manuka honey, cream and carrots called, maybe, Cream Bee (like Queen Bee... does it work?)

We're at 201 votes now!! Yippee!! I can't tell you how much I want to tell you what's going on behind the scenes right now, but I think it's better as a blind vote. :) All will be revealed very soon! Thanks for spreading the word!
