Meet Etsy Soapmaker: dennisanderson

Dennis Anderson was born and raised in Massachusetts by his Dad and Grandmother. "I think they had a big part in teaching me the importance of being responsible and helped give me a realistic look at life," he says. He relocated to the Northwest where he met Brandy, who introduced him to the Indie lifestyle. He credits her for getting him hooked on soap making. "I can be walking down the street and smell a scent, see a strange texture in nature, and all I can think of is how am I going to make this into soap." Although he's only been at it for a year, he's found ways to make his craft fun. "I love the beer soaps in my shop," he admits. "I really want to release more playful soaps and products that reflect my personality." While Etsy is currently a "second job" for Dennis, he plans to turn it into a full time career someday. In the meantime, he makes sure to be a "productive part of the (Etsy) community" while building his client base. "I feel like I was truly blessed to have found this site," he says.
