We have a Classic Hound winner! But first, I want to thank all of you who entered the giveaway! It was fun reading the many entries. Ellen offers a pretty good selection of designs, wouldn't you say?
Okay, onto the fun part. Carrie is the lucky number 28... CONGRATULATIONS!! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward your mailing information onto my sister.
And guess what I realized today? I haven't given you an update on my salsa-making adventure! I'm happy to report I was able to make a couple batches, and boy is it delicious! Thanks again, Stephanie!

And I finally got around to making the soap this week for our swap. Licorice and chocolate were the two fragrance choices I settled on... I hope that's okay with you, Stephanie!
I love the chocolate soap--it darkens over time until it actually takes on the appearance of chocolate! I took this picture right after I cut it, so the inner portion hadn't darkened yet.
Yes, my house smells fantastic right now, if I do say so myself. And it felt great making soap again.
Here's to veggie oils, lye, and saponification!
Pamela, a gal who loves salsa just as much as soap. Well, almost.
