watermelon soaps!

I FINALLY made these cute little soaps! Cute, right? :)
Kinda tricky, but I'm up for a good challenge. Today is all about challenges.
I'm a member of the Etsy Safe Team and our current challenge is a Spring Themed challenge and boy is it challenging! lol
I could do a bar, but I'm one of those that over-think things......make it waaaaaaaaaay too complicated. My artistic side really kicks in and I become a mad scientist, muhahahahahahaha!

Ok I don't quite look like THAT, but you know what I mean! :D

The project is due this week! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Back to the 'lather lab'

I'll keep you posted!

gardeners gift sets

Sowing the seeds of love~

Just in time for spring, two gardeners gift sets fresh out of the soap kitchen!

A handcrafted organic bar of gardeners soap, make with lavender & lemon essential oils and course cornmeal as a natural exfoliant.

The top set has a slice of gardeners soap, a pack of Holland bulbs and a hand trowel all tucked in a cute pot.

The last picture is simply a slice of gardeners soap and a pack of seeds tied to a hand trowel.

peace~love~and a little gardening,

this & that

As previously mentioned our 100 organic lavender soaps are on the curing racks as we speak (or type) ;) and we've gone with a lovely sheer gold wrap with tassel to wrap the soap boxes in. I love it when it all comes together!

We've also decided to take our yummy products to the Premiere International Beauty Event in Orlando in June and are wanting to have a Susie Homemaker theme...with rolling pins, whisks, bowls, etc and we want to wear these adorable little aprons we found, but are going back and forth about which color. So I'm asking for your fabulous opinions! What say you? :)

twilight inspired soap

This is bella. Understated, simple yet temptingly sweet.

A subtle swirl of crimson flows into a deep burgundy bar while the scent of warm vanilla, cotton candy, pink sugar and a touch of musk drive you out of your mind! Also added is a shimmer of iridescent glitter that gleams from the soap.

You so want to take a bite!


wedding & event favors

Phew!!!! We can finally come up for air! We've been busy making organic cannoli & limoncello soaps that are going to an Italian conference....500, 1.75 oz pieces cut, wrapped and tied with a logo...ready to go.

We also just finished 100, 4.5 oz pieces of organic lavender soap that have a sexy, shimmering top. They are made with lavender, litsea cubeba and lemon essential oils, hand cut, hand beveled and each inspected by picky Ms. Yummy! I'm a perfectionist...what can I say...
Needless to say, the soap kitchen aka lather lab smells very lavender-ish! :D

These beauties are headed off for a little curing time and then will be individually wrapped in a piece of chocolate tissue paper and placed in a lovely chocolate soap box. Adorable!

We also made Cocoa Java....a chocolate, hazelnut and vanilla bar, with a smidge of coffee grounds and topped with shaved chocolate soap. YUMMY!
