The Dirt...

This site & soaps are a collaboration between a mother & son on something they both enjoy... being creative.

Any of you who've been here before know I like to keep busy... so between university, sports and life time to blog is hard to find but when I can I do.
ps I really enjoy reading your comments.

Finally a nice hot day here. I made 4 'lumber chunk' loaves. Two in 'bay rum' & 2 in 'strawberries n'cream ' cause I had strawberries on the brain after eating some last night. Hopefully they'll turn  out like I planned, will see tomorrow.

Hung out with Tboard for a bit .
Mom came out & snapped a couple of pics.

Man, it's so hot over here (oklahoma). And the fact that I'm car-less and have to walk across campus (and the town) every day doesn't help.

I wish I could run around topless, but I can't cause I'm a chick and that would be indecent exposure.

On a different note, strawberries and cream soap sounds delicious.

Maybe I will. If I can grab my classmates to join me in a cross-campus topless marathon, it would be sweet.

I'll make sure to send pics.

Testimonials on my soap

I saw SoapWithBalls in a forum post a few weeks ago and was so intrigued with the fabulous shop name and even more intrigued that the avatar for a soap shop was of a young man, I just had to click! After reading the shop announcement written by his mom I really wanted to give this shop it's first sale. My family (my hard working carpenter husband, a sweaty skate boarding teenage son, and a stinky little league catcher) love handmade soap and purchase all of our soap on Etsy. When I saw the manly soap in super large sizes, I thought, this is perfect.

After my purchase, he promptly sent me a thank you convo and shipping information. The communication and customer service I received was wonderful and refreshing. After receiving my Cut Lumber 10oz. bar of soap, I proudly presented it to my dear husband and he immediately took it with him into the shower. I'll tell ya, I've never seen a cleaner man in my life! I wish you the best of luck with your shop, and I will be back when our Cut Lumber starts thinning out :)


Cut Lumber-this is a huge bar of hunky soap perfect for that dirty hunky manly man in your life. This soap is definitely ballsy and not for sissies! No foo foo girly smelling soap here!

Blackstrap Licorice-Licorice was my favorite candy when I was a kid and the smell of this soap makes me want to take a bite out of it! 

Now I'm eyeing that lilac soap, it looks lovely!

His soaps, I mean. He sent me some incredibly luscious soaps and I am SO happy with my purchase! He is the best cabana boy ever- make sure you have all of his products for your own cabana!
