Let's make SOAP!!! Review & Giveaway!!

What a fun review I just did! I was creative!!  I made SOAP!!!! You can TOO!! 

Written and Photographed by
Lisa Maliga
Super fun and super easy!!  This ebook is 134 pages of easy to follow directions, hints and even a chapter of 'don't make these mistakes!'
This ebook is so easy to follow.  I had so much fun!  Lisa provides you with a shopping list of exactly what you need to make some great smelling and long lasting soap!
I love that she doesn't just show you ONE kind of soap, there are instructions to even make baby soap! So many great idea's!! 
 I opted to make a mix of 2 different kinds of soap.  I picked up a tiny pan at the Goodwill for my melting pot.  I used the bottom of a washed out plastic milk container for my first soap. While I was feeding baby Alice lunch it dawned on me I could make small soaps for the kids using the plastic baby food containers!! 
 I have to tell you my soap smells PERFECT!!!  AND why shouldn't it!! I am the one that added the scent! I did the additives!  I had so much fun!! I could see how this could be addicting! I want to play with more colors, scents and additives.  I used Avocado oil (Lisa recommends Avocado for dry skin). I am so proud of my first soaps!! It kind of looks like a pretty pink quartz rock.
Lisa's "The Joy of Melt and Pour Soaps" is AWESOME!!!  Now that I've done a practice batch I'm ready to try some soap for the kids.  Who knew making soap could be addictive?!?!
Lisa's book is easy to use. Lots of detailed instructions. Lots of pictures.  A great list of places to look to for your supplies.  Lisa even has a chapter on helping you to sell your soaps!! WOW!!
I give Lisa's book an whole hearted A++++++++++!!!
I think you will too! Lisa has graciously offered one of Peanut Butter and Whine's readers their own ebook!! 
So get too it!!  You can smell great and be soft like ME!!!
