Upcoming Giveaway, and Sorry...

I have a giveaway of amazing homemade soap coming up (I'll make the comment easy, and this blog is the place where your odds are good!), but I've been waiting because I haven't really had my act together as far as posting is concerned.

I took on a big, exciting project in South Africa and utterly underestimated the time it would take and vastly overestimated the time I have. Can anyone relate? Hehe. That is to say, sorry. It'll be a few more weeks and then this blog will be back to number 1 after Eug, Noah, God, other family, church, work, and watching Leverage (likely not in this order).

I *totally* relate. But hey - busy is better than bored? :) I'd like to exempt myself from the giveaway with a question, though. I've started making my own soap recently, and gotten completely hooked - it's TONS of fun. It's like a chemistry party in my kitchen. To the point that my flat has been colonized with 10 litre tubs of coconut oil. The problem is, I have no particular interest in selling it....I just really enjoy making it. So, what does one do with more homemade soap than I could bathe in in a lifetime? Maybe your next blog giveaway can be a South African soap special :)

Caitlin! I'm sorry we didn't see eachother in Cape Town... Maybe sometime soon?

I'm so impressed that you're making soap! And yay for South African soap giveaways! It may be that family and friends would have a strong edge (Just kidding, those of you who read even though you don't know me, I value you!).

It reminds me of when my great aunt passed away, and we were still using her leftover soap in our family-of-six household ten years later. :)

I know! I'm sorry I missed you in Cape Town.....I ended up registering a bit earlier at Stellenbosch, so out schedules never coincided. I hope you had a lovely stay! But yes, I hope some time soon! Soap making sounds very impressive, but is mostly easy and entertaining....unfortunately, at some point I will have to figure out what to do with it, because at the moment, it seems like I could equip a household of six for a decade comfortably!

If we make it to SA in 2012, we can start a Jo'burg Cape Town Caitlin Jo barter system!
