The one that got away

Last year, a friend shared a great book with me on how to be happy, genuinely happy.  One of the great way to stay happy, according to the book, is to write letters of appreciation. 

I then started to write a few letters to those I'm truly thankful to, and I also made these soaps as a token of my gratitude. 

Now I wish I had made more because I just gave away the last one from this batch and I haven't had a chance to try them yet!

This doesn't happen very often.  Usually I try my soaps before I give them out, it's my kind of way of saying "I know this is good for you!".

  1. Hi Maggie, I am also from Toronto but haven't lived there for many years. Mum is still there at Sheppheard and Yonge. I share your passion for soap making! Your soaps look not-only gorgeous but very original as well. I will enjoy following your blog. xo Jen
