Gearing up....

Well it has been a hectic couple of weeks preparing for my upcoming Artisan Show right before Mothers Day. New Soaps, New Soap Boxes and New Label Designs.....whew!!

Please excuse the table mess in the first photo, just lining it all up for packaging and inventory and this is only about 1/3 of what is going to be listed for sale!! My Score Board, Paper Cutter and Printer are truly getting a workout these days!!



But, I did manage to get 4 more Artisan Soaps done and I couldnt be happier!!!
 Citrus Splash - Scented Grapefruit & Tangelo

Sea Salt Spa Bars- scented Eucalyptus Spearmint

 Purple Haze - scented Black Raspberry Vanilla

Sea Salt Spa Bars- scented Eucalyptus Spearmint


Hope you all are having a Fabulous Weekend!!

Much Love,

Spring time Goodness.....


I was trying out several different ideas for my "Bubble Bath Fizzies" and this is what I finally decided on for my Spring Release!!




I handmade the little Tea Cups from Cardstock and then stamped and colored the little Strawberries to go with the scent of these Wonderful little cups of Goodness. These are my Strawberry& Campaign Bubble Bath Fizzies that I am getting ready to post for sale!!

Wouldn't this be awesome to receive in your Easter Basket or given as a Special Mothers Days Gift?

On to my next packaging project!!

Happy Monday All!!

Crazy Weekend...

Well, it was a boo boo weekend for me. I tried 3 times to make the same simple recipe I have made in the past for my soapy cup cakes and all three failed. Either the base didnt turn out right or the frosting totally flattened!! I was so frustrated.....but, I will be the little engine that could and will try again later this week!!! I really think it had something to do with the Humidity as we got up in the 50's here this weekend! It started melting all the snow finally. We shall see and will keep you all posted at my success!!

On a brighter note I did manage to make a brand new soap loaf scented in Gardenia... the colors morphed on me but I kind of like how it turned out. I will be posting photos later this week as well.


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and now on to the "normal"  work week......

Have coffee in hand!!!
