Safe Team Soap Challenge

OH MY GOODNESS! How i wish one could smell through the computer......... YOU know like a scratch and sniff! Someone will invent a sniffer for the computer and make a million bucks! I would be first in line to buy one.
YOU simply must come by the Safe Team Blog and check out the Soap Challenge.http://etsysafeteam.blogspot.com/2009/03/safe-team-spring-challenge.html
The challenge was to pick a country and create a soap that represents that country. Just looking at the soaps and reading the descriptions one can simply imagine the wonderful scents.
While you are there make sure to vote on your favorite scent. I believe a prize will be given out to one of the comments.

The Safe Team is a group on etsy (the handmade,vintage and supply site).
The Soap Artisan Friends of Etsy (SAFE) team (formerly CYA team) is a group of soapmakers committed to excellence and best manufacturing practices on etsy. We are open to soapers of all levels, from the hobbyist to the well-established seller, including those who create other bath & body products such as lotions, balms, butters and sprays. We continually strive to perfect our craft and educate ourselves and others about the best practices a soaper must follow both to remain in compliance with FDA laws and to ensure quality products.

We are a team that takes great pride in our craft – as it is a blend of both science and art.We are also friends. As such, we value and insist upon respect to all members. We are a world-wide group and run the spectrum of beliefs, cultures, and political leanings, so opinions and personalities will differ ... this is expected and respected. We ask that everyone is treated with courtesy and kindness.

You can find out weekly ramblings in the Etsy Forums here http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=6107931
