Crafter’s this is for you!

18 Jul

Good Morning!

Here’s what’s happening today! I’m in the process of making a Soap Basket for a tricky-tray.  I decided to search the internet for some Great Ideas..

AND

I found one right off the bat. It’s definitely not what I was looking for but it’s pretty awesome.

It’s called a Braided Soap basket! (A Budget Craft)

My newest Cold Processed Soap — Will be ready in 6 weeks……

17 Jan

Well, I finally did it!

I made a batch of soap…I know I  asked for suggestions and Darilyn of

The High Note 

gave the suggestion of Tuberose. Unfortunately, I have some Tuberose soaps in my inventory.  So,

This is the soap I made…….But I need a name now,( it’s an orchid, wood, spices & Lemon)

Anyone have a suggestion?

Soaps that will be featured at Savannah Hope Vintage!

7 Jan

As the New year starts taking off. Thought I’d hurry up and post some of my ALL Natural soaps.

By ALL Natural I mean the scent is natural and the coloring is natural. I myself prefer other ways of scenting soap and coloring it via fragrance oil & colorings (like mica’s). I can be a lot more creative and make Happier Looking soap.

This past spring, summer & fall at the Boonton Farmers market I did a test. What I found was truly amazing. You know how people say you eat with your eyes first? Well, it seems to be the same with soap. I had a fairly large tray with my ALL Naturals and I even put a large sign saying that tray was ALL Natural.

My customers & potential customers would ask about the tray. (at the time there was  no price difference) you know what? Every single customer & potential customer veered away from that tray. They went to the soaps that made them HAPPY!

Which makes me Happy!

I will at one point work on the ALL Naturals but for me right now Ah….I’m not in a rush. But, I did make some for

Are you ready?

To tell you the truth I’m no where near ready.

Whew!

So much to do so little time to do it. Last week I started making a grocery list. Here’s my list,

It’s pretty sad looking huh? At least it’s a start. LoL!

Do you have your list done?

Well, I know the list will be pretty big in a few minutes and I have to make sure the items for my favorite “Hot Apple Cider” are on that list.

Hot Apple Cider

and

This is my absolute favorite recipe that I found on All-Recipes.com

Here’s the recipe:

6 cups apple cider

1/4 cup real maple syrup

2 cinnamon sticks

6 whole cloves

6 whole all spice berries

1 orange peel – cut into strips

1 lemon peel – cut into strips

  • Pour the apple cider and maple syrup into a large stainless steel saucepan.
  • Place the cinnamon sticks, cloves, allspice berries, orange peel and lemon peel in the center of a washed square of cheesecloth; fold up the sides of the cheesecloth to enclose the bundle, then tie it up with a length of kitchen string. Drop the spice bundle into the cider mixture.
  • Place the saucepan over moderate heat for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the cider is very hot but not boiling.
  • Remove the cider from the heat. Discard the spice bundle. Ladle the cider into big cups or mugs, adding a fresh cinnamon stick to each serving if desired.

If you enjoy (like I do) a hot apple ciderTRY This it’s so yummy!

If that’s not your cup of tea maybe this is,

a nice bar of Fruit Loops extra moisturizing soap.
