A Soapy Connection


Through The Hive ( click here to you read my previous post), I've met Cyndy. Allow me to introduce her to you. Cyndy makes soap. She loves all forms of crafting; but is especially fond of old time homesteading types of crafts. Certainly making soap is that.

She is in the process of donating some of her fabulous handmade soap for our friends in need under The Bridge. You may recall how I periodically put together soap, shampoo, toothbrushes and other personal care items to accompanying our much need hats, scarves, and mittens. I'm thrilled. Not only is she big hearted by donating, but this soap is made from all natural materials no chemicals and is therefore healthy for our skin (and there's). Cyndy started her soap hobby back in 2003, and in 2009 it grew into a business. She grows her own ingredients in her garden in Northwest Illinois. She and her family personally use everything they make. Please visit her webpage to see all the wonderful handmade soaps available, be sure and tell her Sandy sent ya.

Welcome to our team of people helping the homeless here in Central Ohio, Cyndy. I'm so happy we've connected because of The Hive

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
