To research my new Colorado Amish Courtships series, I learned to make handmade soap. Many thanks to Janet Pulleyn (PJ’s Soap Company) and Katie Carson (Royalty Soaps) for teaching me the craft. But I made so much that I now have to sell it! (My poor husband, right?) My soaps are made with pure ingredients and are luxurious and fragrant and lather like crazy. I named my online shop after one of my granddaughters and it’s the name of Julia Rose, the heroine in my new upcoming book titled Her Amish Christmas Choice, which will be available November 2019. To buy some of my soaps, check out my online Etsy shop by clicking here. My prices are quite reasonable and the soaps make a great gift for someone else or indulgence for yourself. Just a few of my soaps are displayed below and I’m making new ones all the time. (After I’ve first written the pages for my newest book, of course!) Enjoy!
