Attention all Canadians: Check out this conference in June 2018!


I cannot express my excitement enough, so I'll just use a string of vowels to share my joy: EEEEEEEEEEEE!

The Handmade Bath & Body Guild (Canada) is partnering with the Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetic Guild (US) to bring us a conference in June 2018 in Toronto, Ontario! If it's half as much fun as the one I just attended in Las Vegas, you are in for a great time!

Click here for my exhausted, but excited report from the 2017 HSCG conference in Las Vegas! 

I'm definitely going - I'm applying to be a speaker, but if they don't choose me, I'm going anyway -  and if you're on the fence about attending, I have two words for you - sober karaoke! It's like drunk karaoke, only more embarrassing and you don't get to say "I was so loaded" afterwards as an excuse for your amazing performance. We can do one of my favourites, Europe's "The Final Countdown" as a group. Are you in?

Who would you like to see there? I'm voting for Dr Joe Schwarcz, professor at McGill University and author of many, many books on chemistry, as well as Ariane Arsenault. I'd love to see Kevin Dunn of Scientific Soapmaking speak as well. (After all, he's the one who inspired me to make soap last week with Michele of Windy Point Soap!)

If you aren't familiar with Dr Joe, check out his column in the Montreal Gazette (here's an example), his show on Sundays on CJAD, or his Facebook page! He's just awesome! 

Who would you like to see speak at this conference? Make your suggestions here or get over to the Facebook page for the Handmade Bath & Body Guild and let them know what you think!

Did I mention I'm so excited? I just can't hide it!
