H&H Holiday Giveaway Day!

Who doesn't want something for free? H&H is happy to give away some delicious smelling and seriously lathering bar soaps (made by H&H) as well as a handmade soap mold made by my very talented, carpentry-inclined stepfather especially for this giveaway. AND later this week (hopefully) there will be a soapmaking tutorial posted on this blog. So, the winner will be able to exercise their brand new mold!


All you gotta do is leave a comment. Points for cleverness. Well, not really, as the winner will be chosen at random, but it would be more interesting that way. Please include some form of contact information so that we can let you know if you've won. You only have until tonight at midnight (PST), the winner will be announced tomorrow. (Unfortunately we won't be shipping outside of the US. Sorry to those in far off lands!) So good luck, and I would say spread the word but that would narrow your chances. So maybe wait until tomorrow and then spread the word... though that could be viewed as pointless. Well...nevermind.

If you want to see if there are other giveaways you can win see Sew, Mama, Sew!

Handmade soap, what a treat! And I could even make my own, oh my!

Lisa said...

I just had to wash the dogs on the this cold and blustery day. They had rolled in... well, you really don't want to know! Let's just say it came out of a cow!

Anyway, they aren't fond of baths, so in the end, I got more "lathered" than I was hoping for!

Would love to learn to make soap!!

Emily said...

In the winter when it’s dark and cold and especially when the holidays are over I really love having a nice product or two in the shower to look forward to … a little something to help me get out of bed. Your lathering homemade soap would be just the ticket! In fact, I’m sure I’d spring out of bed because I’d be so excited to get sudsy and foamy and nice smelling!

Liz said...

Neat! I'd love to give soap making a try.

SandyQuilts said...

I can't wait to try the lathered up look ... don't seem to have time for it these days. Thanks.

Rachel said...

Does having 5 children 8 and under (incl twin 18mos old boys!) qualify me as needing soap? And more soap? If not, you've obviously not met my children! And the pigs...and the geese...and the chickens...and ducks...and dog...Lol.

If you need some country experience, you are more than welcome to help us butcher our pigs in early March...or the chickens sometime in the next few weeks--don't live in OK do you?

Kooky enough for you? ;-) Well, you're still invited (it's all true, btw)...

Amy said...

How lovely! I would love to know how to make soap for my four sweet little ones. Thank you!

Murray said...

My mom washes with me Pumpkin soap and I really despise smelling like a Starbucks latte. I would love to be bathed in fresh smelling, handmade, local soap!

Please don’t pick Justin. I may like the taste of poop, but I don’t like soap in my mouth!

Love,
Murray the Coolest Golden Lab Ever
