Announcement: Soap's On! for the Fine Art of Soapmaking Education

I won't be double posting most of the time, but I do want to let you know about this ... The Soap's On! YouTube channel is up and open for business! This first video is simply a short introduction to me and the goals of the channel. The next several videos will be background information on soapmaking, although we'll start actually making soap soon.  How exciting is that?! I'd appreciate it if you could hop on over to the channel, and then like, comment, and subscribe! The more people who engage with the video, the more likely it is that...

My Word of the Year

Cindy Jones Lantier

I love beginnings, especially the beginning of a new year. They are full of uncertainty (the good kind!), fresh dreams, and hopeful longing.  They can also be full of questions—and the other kind of uncertainty.  Full of angst, performance anxiety, and unattended goals. For most of my life, the New Year started full of hope and promise, and ended up in a hot mess! I’d want to set myself up to have the perfect year, but somewhere along the way life showed up and I’d lose sight of where I’d wanted to go, just a few short months before. One...

Big Changes Coming Up!

Cindy Jones Lantier

I am so excited about the changes here at The Eclectic Soul (or TES, as we call her around our house)! I’ve spent the last several weeks thinking about what works for TES and what doesn’t. About what I enjoy and what I don’t.  And, most importantly, how to bring it all together to create forward motion for both me, on a personal level, and the small, handcrafted business I am trying to grow.  First of all, I’m going to be a lot more present with TES, both on social media and here on the website.  I know I’ve said...

Happy New Years!

Happy New Years!

I love firsts … First kisses, first cars. The first of the week, the first of the month – but most especially, the first of the year. It’s not the date itself that excites me, but rather the energy. There’s a freshness, a hopefulness. It’s time to look ahead and get lost in possibilities. At New Years, almost everyone is making resolutions and dreaming of a better life. And not just dreaming; many people are actively looking for ways to change their lives and realize their goals. Of course, I’m no different. I have a ton of plans for 2018,...

Online Shop Temporarily Closed

Online Shop Temporarily Closed

  I wanted to let you know that the online store for The Eclectic Soul is temporarily closed. My plan is to open it back up on or before Sunday, 01 October. Of course, there will be some kind of re-opening special to help you get a jump on holiday shopping! I've closed it, for now, to help me get it ready for the holidays. I need to update inventory, get new products listed, and take care of a host of other small tasks, too. I'm also in the process of redoing the entire site to make your browsing and...
