If anyone has talked to me recently, you know I've taken to soapmaking like a fiend. The money I have spent on bases, oils, butters, and plastic molds is sort of ridiculous, but I am addicted. The nice thing about poetry, and even collage, is that it's a pretty cheap endeavor. Even the press operates on a smaller budget monthly than what I've sunk into the shop this month. When I spend every cent of my birthday money on supplies, and have indulged in many a 3 am soap making binge, it's probably a little out of control.
