Happy Saturday!

As some of you may or may not know…. we have an ETSY store and OPEN SKY store and we’re very active on Facebook. Plus, we sell at the local Farmers market during the Spring/Summer. It’s been an absolute ride this past year. I can not believe how we’ve picked up! 

AND

it’s because of our Customers (THANK YOU!)

that we were able to donate this food (well, that was the last donation of the year) to FOOD PANTRY!

(IF, you didn’t know we donate a percentage of ALL sales for food for the pantry)

This is  White Zinfandel, made with 100% Pure White Zinfandel and even smells like it! I have to say I Love the way it turned out!

This is an Exclusive Soap on OpenSky! But, there are Only 3 left. Could you imagine giving this to the woman of your dreams? a daughter? a Lover? a Man? heck I’d buy this one for myself…

Hope you’re off to a GREAT DAY!

It stinks….

9 Jan

happy Tuesday! (Did I just say Tuesday?)

I meant to say Happy Thursday!

So,

Happy Thursday!!!

Where does that time go?

After inventory and making a production schedule I wait! Wait for what? I’m waiting for supplies to come…Have you ever felt stuck between a rock and a hard place. Well, that’s me right now.

I have so many soaps to get moving on but am missing ingredients: Ah……..

Soaps like Customer Favorite’s that I can not keep in stock no matter how many batches I make!

Callus Soap which is packed with and I mean packed with Lots & Lots of fine pumice and Shea Butter! I’ve never used it but my customer’s LOVE it! and every time I tell someone I’ve never used it they look at me like I had 12 heads. Then they usually buy a bar. They use it and when there done they come back and say

” I NEED another bar because I LOVE it!”  Who am I to argue with that?

AND

Coffee Mocha hand soap that can also be used on the body if you wish. This soap happens to be one of MY favorites….. A bit exfoliating and super moisturizing! It’s packed with everything that a cup of coffee has like: Coffee, Cream, Sugar, Coffee grinds. AND it’s also packed with lots of Shea butter… 

So I WAIT!!!!

Kick off to 2014 SOAP Making!!!

6 Jan

Good Morning and Happy Monday!

Today I’m starting my 2014 soaps. The first one up,  is my *ever Popular Dirt worm soap! being SOLD exclusively on Open Sky. If you’ve never heard of Open Sky it’s a great marketplace with some high end awesome products and I’m proud to be a seller there. Here’s the link if you’d like to join Open Sky.

I’ve been putting off the Dirt Worm Soap because Micheal’s (where I used to get those little worms) stopped selling them. AH>>>>I’ve been on a long hard journey but I finally found them.YAY!!! AND they look awesome can’t wait to show you the pics.

For those of you that have no idea what Dirt Worm Soap is it’s a soap that smells and looks like REAL dirt and has a worm that pops out! They make awesome gifts for Kids Birthday parties but I also have adult men customers that love the idea of showering with a bar of dirt w/ a worm. (I guess it makes them feel like a kid again, hehehehe)

rsz_pumpkin_illumination

Sounds like fun huh? This is also the Kickoff to the Boonton Holiday Boutique! (which is across the street) The Holiday Boutique will be open for 2 months as a consignment store (for us)

Needless, to say I’m not sure how our soap will be displayed and I’m not sure how much to stock the store with. This is completely uncharted territory for us.

In the meantime we also have 2 other smaller craft shows and then our big one at the Gingerbread Wonderland, which we did last year. It’s for 2 FULL weekends.

I’m am SUPER SUPER excited!

Re-batched Soap!

30 Sep

Happy Monday!

The weekend went by so fast didn’t it?

Anyway, We’ve had this batch of soap (Guinness)soap that has been around for a bit. Mainly because we had forgotten to add the fragrance. We sell a lot of beer soap but believe or not Men actually like that added scent. Who knew, right?

So, what we needed to do was re-batch the batch we had made. What’s re-batch? It’s the same as Hand-milled soap. You take soap that has already been made (Great for anyone that doesn’t want to work with Lye) and melt it. Then you can add  fragrance and/or color of your choice. It’s wonderful way to make ALL Natural bars using essential oils.

For us it’s not our favorite way to make soap but it works especially when you forget something like fragrance! LoL 🙂

Since I take the pics by myself sometimes it’s hard to get just the right pictures that i was looking for…If you have ANY questions Please ask 🙂

Happy Friday!!!!! We made it…..

27 Sep

I have been so busy this week words can not even describe.

AND

 I still have lot of stuff to do even as I type this. Yesterday I made a very beautiful soap (on the outside) and wasn’t sure what it would look like on the inside.

It’s one of our *ALL-NATURAL* Soaps.

It’s made with Essential oil of Patchouli and it’s colored w/ Alkanet Root Powder, Parsley Powder & Annatto Seed.

Here’s what the outside looked like.  beautiful right? Patchouli

Being that I used a rectangle mold I wasn’t sure if I’d see any of the flower or not. So as the clocked ticked I couldn’t wait to um-mold it to see what it looked like.

Guess what?

To our surprise it can out pretty good……
