I’m super excited to share this interview with Susan Barclay-Nichols, the brains behind Point of Interest!/Swifty Crafty Monkey; an absolutely amazing DIY resource blog. I’ve learned so much from Susan over the years and I’m really excited to have her “here” to answer some questions about what gets her inspired and how she works 🙂
How did you first get into making body products?
My husband and I were running youth programs, and I thought I’d like to run a craft group as part of it. I found a recipe for bath bombs and, after making a few batches, I thought it’d make a great project for a class. My trial run with a few kids went horribly wrong, so I turned to the ‘net for help and discovered the Dish forum. I found the answer to my problem – I was the wrong type of citric acid! – and discovered I could make shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and so much more at home. I was looking for a new hobby and quickly fell in love with making bath & body products.
