Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne. 

As the year comes to a close, I am once again reminded how lucky I am.  The past 4 months have been a roller coaster, but I think I'm right where I'm supposed to be.  I'm blessed with a loving family, wonderful friends and unbelievable customers. 

From the moment I thought about opening Wicked Soaps, I was terrified.  Was I really going to be able to do this?  Could I actually do this on my own?  But the deciding factor was, I just couldn't see myself walking away from something I love.  And I love Etsy.  I love creating.  I love soap.  As strange as it sounds, soap is my passion.   There's only one thing I love more than making soap, and that's hearing how much my customers love my creations.  The fact that people are willing to pay for my creations is amazing.  The fact that they love my creations renews my passion.  I admit it...soaping is like heroin...and you guys are feeding my habit! 

I never thought I'd be here...less than 2 months into my brand new shop, and sitting at over 300 sales.  Thank you for letting me do what I love.  Thank you for loving what I do.  Best wishes to all of my lovely friends.  May the new year be bright for you.
