Yay! HSMG Conference, Here I Come

I am very excited!! I wanted to attend the Handcrafted Soapmaker Guild Conference in Denver, Co. this spring, but wasn't sure that I could swing the bill. While the conference price is very reasonable, combined with hotel and travel expenses, I didn't think I could budget it this year.

Luckily, Stratus Insurance offered to pay for 2 scholarships for the conference this year. I applied and today I received word that I had been selected as one of the two recipients. I get to attend the conference with 4 nights hotel stay plus $500 in travel expenses for free. You would have thought I had won the lottery.

This will be my first time west of the Mississippi River! I can't wait to go, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to meet many of you in person.


  1. We're looking forward to meeting you too, Erica! Congratulations and thanks for all your volunteer time for the HSMG. :) See you in Denver!

  3. Thanks you guys! I will definitely blog and take photos to share.
