Winter Handcrafted Soap Extravaganza - Giveaway with 8 Winners!

Today I have come together with several other awesome soapmaking bloggers to offer a Soap Extravaganza.  There will be 8 winners of these decadent, beautiful handmade soaps.  Perfect for nourishing your tired, dry winter skin.  This is one way to bring some brightness and sunshine to the dreary winter days. 

Marissa from A Homemaker's Journal crafts a wide variety of both hot and cold processed soaps.  Looking at the pictures of her soaps - they look good enough to eat, and must smell amazing too.  She sells her soaps at Lemonberry And Lime if you'd like to check out her store.
Up for grabs from her shop are a Gingersnap Crumble Goats Milk hot process soap and a So Soapy Clean artisan soap:
In addition, she is giving away another soap duo - Spiced Pumpkin Goat's Milk Cold Process Soap and a Milk Oats and Honey Artisan Soap:
Next up is Nancy, from A Rural Journal.  Nancy has sent me some of her soaps before, and I love that they aren't overly perfumed and have a marvelous lather to them.  My skin felt so smooth afterwards.  You can buy Nancy's soap in her Papio Creek Shop.  The first soap she is giving away is a Papio Creek Toasted Coconut Cold Processed Soap:
The second soap she is giving away is a Papio Creek Aromatic Anise cold processed soap:
Also participating is Teresa from Eden Hills Blog.  She has a farm with many animals, including lots of very cute goats.  Teresa crafts soaps from goat's milk, and you can visit her store at Eden Hills Market to find out more about her products.  She is giving away a Chocolate Chunk Goat Milk Soap:

And she is also giving away a Red Apple goat milk soap:

I am  offering up two decorative homemade soaps.  You can check out the Two Bears Farm Etsy shop to see similar soaps.  First up is a shea butter glycerin peace dove soap, lightly scented with lemon verbena:


Also offered is a mother and child shea butter glycerin soap, lightly scented with lavender.  This would also be a wonderful gift for a new mother:

My mom said I used to bite off pieces of her soap and suck on them for a while before I dropped them in her old Maytag wringer washer.
