Spring Craft Show March 27-28, 2009

Let's hope this "spring" craft show is better than last year...it got cancelled due to a huge SNOW storm! How's that for irony!

This show is called Springtime in the Country Craft Boutique. It is located at St. Gabriel's School. The show runs from 6pm-9:30pm on Friday, March 27th and 9am-4pm on Saturday, March 28th. My table location is in the Multi-Purpose Room, table #77. The address for this show is 9935 Johnnycake Ridge Road Concord Twp, Ohio. I've been doing this show for years & years, but this will be a new table location for me. I have a few new scents to share! I hope to see you there, if you are in the area...stop by & say hi!

I will be the Spring Craft & Trade Show at St. Paschal Baylon Church tomorrow. The show runs from 9am - 3pm on March 14th. My table location is in the Parish Life Center room.

Groovy, Man! It's baaaaaack...Patchouli Soap!

There are a bunch of patchouli lovers out there that begged & begged for this one. This is the classic scent of the 60s, you know it, you love it. Perfect for those psychedelic flashbacks, man!

Our soap is handmade in small batches to focus on quality! We use the cold process method and superior ingredients. Each is hand cut and allowed to cure for approximately 4-6 weeks. Our Patchouli soap is packaged in a gold organza bag. Since it will retain some of the soap fragrance, we encourage you to reuse the organza bag for something wonderful! No animal fats, artificial colorants or preservatives in any of our products!

Please keep your soap in a well drained dish to keep your soap around as long as possible! If handmade soap is allowed to sit in water for too long it will become mushy and not last very long. Now we don't want that, do we?

New lip balm flavors & the return of a sachet!

Fields of Lavender Sachets are back!! Yeah!! They have been missing from my shop for quite awhile. I was waiting to get a new photo light box tent to take some new pix. Since I am in Ohio & the winter lasts FOREVER (especially this year) I thought it would be a good idea to get one. Now I can take some decent *indoor* shots! The lavender sachets are back up on Etsy at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21713848.

I am pleased to announce the arrival of two new lip balm flavors! The first is Orange Creamsicle. Yummy! And the second is Grape Soda. Both of these lip balms were made with candelilla wax instead of beeswax for our vegan friends. If your lips need some winter relief, give them a try! http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5530245&section_id=5612218

Weddings, weddings, weddings!

Both of my sisters are getting married this year. One in August in Columbus, Ohio & the other in November in Chicago. Needless to say, my family is a little bonkers lately! Oh, plus we're all going to my cousin's wedding in Tuscon, AZ shortly. That's a lot of weddings for one year! My daughter & I are going to the bridal shop today to get fitted & pick our choices for the maid of honor/jr bridesmaid dresses. She is almost 9 & is over-the-top excited for such a "big girl" dress!

I am hoping to get back from the bridal shop early enough to get some new lip balm flavors listed in the Etsy shop today. We'll see how it works out! I will post when I get the new lip balm listed. And the soap that is currently curing should be getting close to being ready. I will check on that later today, too!
