Handmade Soap Coach
February 7, 2012

This past Saturday the NY Giants won the Super Bowl! I have to admit I am not into football but when the NY Giants are in the Super Bowl I am down! I watched the Super Bowl in my local town at a local restaurant, Jacksonville’s. We were extra amped because one of our native residents plays for the NY Giants by the name of Victor Cruz. He has trully made a name for himself and has represented and made his town proud of him during the games. He has become known for his signature dance the Silk City Salsa. Why Silk City? Well that is the nickname for Paterson, NJ which had a great hand in the development of the industrial revolution from the silk mills and the power behind the recently inducted National Park, the Great Falls! .

Now that the Super Bowl is over I am getting all geared up for Valentine’s Day making Strawberry and Chocolate scented cupcake soaps! They will be available for sale at the Pooka Boutique in Orange, NJ. So stop on by and pick up a few for you sweetie!

Also, this weekend just in time for Valentine’s Day come and learn how to make Soy Candles from Yum Yum Candle. If you are looking for a new hobby or thinking about adding something new to your product line this just might be the thing for you! A few spots are open to register today!
