I started Cinnamon Ridge Fragrance in October of 2011, but really didn’t do much with the business until late in 2012.  I started a store on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/cinnamonridge, and have added some of my items to it.  I made a couple of sales!  It was great, and encouraged me to look more into what handcrafted items I could make and sell.  From that, I found cold process soap.  What I’d been making was melt and pour soap – still handcrafted, but easier in terms of what the soap was going to turn out like.  There were fewer variables.  I was fascinated by the art of cold process soap, and how it overlaid the science of making soap “from scratch”.  I’ve added a few pictures to show you what I have for sale right now:
