This week's featured posts:

Make this easy melt and pour soap to give a beautiful (affordable!) gift this Christmas!

from A Chick and Her Garden


I'll get a picture of it being lathered soon.  This soap lathers like crazy, lasts a super long time, moisturizes your skin, and the clay adds a nice slip for shaving too.  It's one of my favorites all year, but for Christmas, it's meaningful.

Introducing Stanley, the LGD
