Here’s my newest offering for chocolate lovers and handmade soap lovers alike: Chocolate Cake Soap. It’s a way to indulge in chocolate without the calories- if you can stave off the cravings from the scent!
I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year’s Eve. I stayed home and spent it with my son and my husband. I’m not much for extreme crowds and traffic. 🙂
In 2008 my focus was to create a viable shop and perfect my products. Looking back, I’m pretty well satisfied with my progress in those areas. For 2009, my goal is to streamline everything to be more productive. I’m going to have several select year-around products and add seasonal lines to the mix. I also plan to concentrate on soap and things like washcloths, etc. that work well together. I might add a new shop for my vintage and destash items in the near future.
For Christmas, my wonderful husband made me a few wooden log molds, and my parents bought me a larger crock pot. In a few minutes I’ll be taking my first batch of soap out of the new molds. It’s like Christmas all over again. The new soap is a sweet baby rose scent that has had my home smelling fabulous since I poured it.
Time for me to log off and get thing moving for 2009. Have a great day and a great year!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day, and for those who celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas. I’m spending some time with my family and working on a few new things for the new year. I’ll keep you posted on how things are going.
The holidays are in full swing around here, so I haven’t had as much time to blog lately. It’s my goal to make all of my Christmas gifts this year, and with Christmas less than two weeks away I’m beginning to feel the crunch.
I plan to make a batch of Beer soap today that will be ready by the end of the week.
I just received a new order of fragrance and essential oils from Bramble Berry yesterday. I should have a few new scents available just after the New Year. I also plan to add 100% cotton hand knit and crocheted washcloths to my shop in a few weeks as well.
Many fishermen swear that the scent of licorice attracts fish. You don’t have to fish or be a fish to enjoy the mildly sweet aroma of this soap, however. A combination of anise and fennel infused oils and anise oil give it a licorice scent that will make you feel like a kid in a candy store. The aloe juice and added aloe gel will make your skin clean and happy, too!

I just listed a new version of my chamomile and lavender soap in my shop. This one is formulated without the soybean oil to produce a firmer bar. I’ve used a generous amount of lavender fragrance oil and lavender buds to increase the scent. Cocoa butter is also included to make the bar more moisturizing.
