Well…here we are!! This is the crazy, sometimes normal, always funny Barnard family. I’m Angela, and along with my husband Nathan, and our two children, Noah & Cali, we have the most amazing life on the South Shore of Nova Scotia! Noah is my copilot in this whole crazy soap thing!
My love for soap making came a long time ago, where I created soap and bath items for fun and gifts for those most special to me. I really loved the craft, but any of you mothers out there know that when you get married and have a couple kids, you sometimes lose the things you loved once before. I am a registered nurse, and spent so many years working and giving the best of myself to those who I thought needed me most…at work. Now I want to give those who I love the best of me too!
I decided a couple years ago now, that Noah and I needed something that bonded us, as he spent most of his time with Nathan, and Cali with me. I thought, well, there’s one thing for sure I know that I love to do, and I can teach it to someone else, so here goes.
Once we had that first batch of milk soaps curing, I knew I was going to make something of this and never give it up again!
I sometimes find it challenging to stay positive, and teach that to my children, and I have a lot of special people in my life. I love to tell stories, and to make people laugh, and have a real love for reflextion on happy memories, so I make each soap specific to one of those. I make them personal and dedicate almost every single one. I hope when you use them, you can reflect on my dedication and experience the full meaning of why it looks and smells the way it does.
