Giveaway: Rachael’s Homemade Soap Shop

How’s about a fun little giveaway to get you through this dreary Wednesday?  (OK, it’s probably not low 30’s and drizzly everywhere, but it sure as heck is here.)


Meet Rachael.  She lives in the Seattle area and she makes soap.  Cool, right?  Rachael says:

I have been making soap for my family for the last 9+ years in my own kitchen.  Recently I have taken it to another level and participated in some local craft sales under the SassyMei name. I have had an overwhelming response to my soap and have decided to set up an Etsy shop, Rachael’s Homemade Soap Shop.


The soaps come in a number of different scents that sound good enough to eat.  Cranberry orange anyone?  How about black raspberry vanilla?

In addition to the soaps, Rachael sells delightful little scrubbies (and they’re only 75 cents!!!).


Wouldn’t a box with some of each make a delightful gift?

Speaking of gifts, Rachael currently has a special Holiday Cheer section of her shop to help with your holiday gift giving needs.  There you’ll find festively colored scrubbies and special holiday soap scents, among other things.


Everything in the shop (except for an entire batch of 16 bars of soap) is under $10.  Nice, right?

What’s in it for you?

Rachael is giving one lucky Crap I’ve Made reader 4 bars of soap and 3 scrubbies of their choice!
