My source of inspiration is just about anything vintage. I love looking on stores that sell vintage items to get an idea for a new box. I am also inspired by a lot of music. I craft with my iPhone or Pandora playing, and sometimes I just craft based on whatever comes to mind with the music.

As cheesy as it sounds, my original and continuing inspiration is my daughter, Holly. I hope that as she gets older I will be able to share my love of crafting with her and we will create new things together.

Although my daughter is the inspiration behind everything, she really is what DRIVES me to do what I’m doing. And of course, I couldn’t do any of it without my husband.

I like the uniqueness and high quality found in handmade items, and I like the idea of buying directly from the person who created it.

Earthly delights for your skin.

Earthly delights for your skin.

All my soaps are made using the cold process method of soapmaking. Cold Process means that the oils are not subjected to external heat (the only heat comes from a chemical reaction called saponification.) The texture of cold process seems to me like the finest texture and quality of soap. I also favor more natural colorants such as clays, activated charcoal or sometimes; just the color the oils themselves provide.

One of my favorite soaps that I make is-“Orange Honey Drizzle with Oats-A generous drizzle of aromatic Citrus Honey and Sweet Orange essential oil mingle with hand ground colloidal oats; this wholesome soap is like breakfast for your skin.” I think it exemplifies my style and what I like about soap. It’s wholesome and real, it looks beautiful, it smells wonderful and it makes your skin feel amazing.

Awesome, Cute, Fun and Handmade!

I think in this day and age, a lot of things are produced by machines. I feel that before the handmade movement really took off, many took handmade for granted.
