The Outlaws are on Vacation!

That's right, even an outlaw needs to get away. We're taking some time to regroup after the Christmas mayhem... you know, make more bacon soap and start on those wholesale orders that came in too late to get the last of the Hair of the Dog. If you placed an...

Our new box: revealed!

Since pretty much the beginning of our business, we have been using biofilm and a recycled brown paper sticker to wrap our soaps. The whole package biodegrades and the wrap keeps the soaps from being damaged in stores by over-handling. But after much deliberation, planning, and design work, we have...

In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.

Terrifying Abundance

The past two weeks have been pretty crazy... It started with us getting an order for 816 sets of Bacon, Coffee, and Whiskey from ThinkGeek round about September 15th. Now, we're not a very big company, and making 2,440 bars of soap is really testing our capacity, not to mention...

The places I've gone

I wasn't really sure what to write about, but then I got a glance at some old phone upload photos, and thought I might post about some of the most beautiful and inspirational places I have been. This isn't a comprehensive list... there's no way to create a comprehensive list of...
