Hey all!

It is Shannon from Shannon's Soaps.  Brian does the posting at that other shave forum that shall not be named Big Grin

A little about me:  degree in Chem with a minor in Bio in 1997 from John Carroll here in OH.  Did a few years of transplant immunology research (mostly tissue culture) before I decided to teach English and Science to 7th graders in Cleveland.  Facebook tells me I took that job 15 years ago this month.  Stopped teaching four days before my daughter Robyn was born in 2007.  Decided to start soapmaking because Brian has sucky, er sensitive, skin.  Got badgered into making lotions and bath bombs (and bath salts) by friends and family.  Made it a business venture.  Then BAM, pregnant with twins (found out it was twins three years ago this week!), who are now approaching 2.5yo.  Spent much of the first half of last year developing my shave soap.  Been working on reading about essential oils and developing scents, but that's pretty slow going, you know, because I have two year old crazy boys.  Jason, the older one by 15 minutes, seemingly has a death wish.  Dan, the younger, is my sweet, more cautious one.  

I also enjoy cooking and baking (I make an amazing cheesecake) and my reef tank, that has been rather neglected.  My poor clownfish, who is 8, has been a widow for the last few months.  Big Momma, his mate, died after a long 12 years in my living room. 

Anyway, glad to be here!  Thanks for inviting me!

Welcome! Twins only get more mischievous as they get older... And seem to try and take each other out at every opportunity. Trust me. I've got twins x2 (1 1/2 & 3 1/2)

No shaving soap there, yet.  It's mostly women's stuff and furniture. :Smile What time are you planning on going?  Anything you want to smell?  Maybe I'll drop a couple off if I can.
