About Denise

I'm a crazy goat lady who got into making my own soap with goat milk, found MMS to order supplies, and now I get to combine my love of creating skin care products with a job to pay the feed bill.

The best part about having a Twizzler’s plant nearby was that the licorice sold at the local movie theater was ultra-fresh, soft, and truly delicious. I [...]
