Please check out both treasuries and see all the goodies. Thank you to both YouBadGirl and whyteboots for including me!
This is really a great boost for me because I have been a bit under the weather the past couple of weeks, both mentally and physically. I worked on some valentine soaps for three weeks and they just never came out right and were an epic fail. I wasted so much soap experiementing, but that is half the fun of making things. At this point, it's too late for the holiday anyway, but I was really trying to be better about doing holiday soaps this year. It's funny because I always thought that not having a job would give me more time to make things. The reality is I just don't have the budget for the supplies without the job, so I'm trying to figure out what I can buy now so that I can keep making things in the meantime! It's a bit lame because I would love to be using this time to make soap and jewelry all day, but I can't quite do it yet. I'll figure something out!
I have also been having some allergy issues due to a very unseasonably warm week where it was almost 70 every day - of course, I can't complain about that! I hope to get back on track with some non-valentine soaps in the next couple of weeks.
I have been very lucky lately and my soaps have been getting into a lot of Etsy treasuries! I just discovered that my candied rose petal madeleine soaps have been included in a Valentine's inspired Pink and Caramel treasury by Octopurse.
Please check out the treasury here and thank you Octopurse!
The other day, I was approached by Lorraine of SF Indie Fashion about featuring my soaps and of course I jumped at the chance! I just found out that today was the big day. Please check out the feature "Just Desserts" on SF Indie Fashion here. A big thank you to SF Indie Fashion for the mention!!
In other news, I am working on some Valentine's Day soaps today that I should have finished soon!
I have just added my first scrub to my shop! A luscious coconut oil, vanilla essential oil and brown sugar scrub. Vanilla essential oil is a great stress reliever and mood enhancer and coconut oil is highly moisturizing and a wonderful skin softener.
I also added my candied rose petal madeleine soaps. They have a very floral and sweet scent, in a cute little madeleine shape!
