It’s been a number of years since I made pie soap and when I got the peach nectar scent I knew I wanted to make it with my pie design again.
Peach Nectar: fresh peach blended perfectly with a hint of the tropics create this rich, sweet, sultry scent.
Top: Peach, apple, plum, raspberry, coconut, citrus
Middle: Jasmine, violet, lily, cinnamon, clove
Base: Vanilla, caramel, tonka, musk

I’ve done more flower scents this spring that I have in a long long time! Even a lot of the fruity ones have undertones of floral to them. This one didn’t quite go as plan when it came to piping the flowers, but you’d probably not guess that unless I pointed it out to you, huh?
HYACINTH: the fresh floral aroma of real hyacinth flowers.
Look at how the green morphed and then turned back to it’s original dark green!

So, this probably doesn’t quite qualify as inspirational, but it sure does crack me up. It really is true in the aspect it reflects the highs and lows I can go through running my own business. Ultimately, at the end of the day I’m happy. I love what I do and I wouldn’t give it up or change anything…but there are those times when I go “why the heck did I start my own business?!?!”

Don’t worry! I’m not going far, just a few towns over–from Concord to Ayer. I can’t tell you how excited I am about this (even if it’s coming during show season when life is crazy busy)! I’ve out grown my current space. In fact about two years ago I really started to feel my space shrinking on me. After a year and a half of searching I’ve finally found a home to call mine. And what’s awesome about this is that the space will have a (large) separate work space for my business. It’s exciting, stressful, and a bit overwhelming all that I need to do to move from one space to another and get that new space up an running.
I’ve tried to do all that I can before the move to make this as smooth a transition as possible, but there will be some down time during the actual move. I’m hoping it’s no more than a week and I will do my best to fill orders as quickly as possible after the move, but please be patient if you order and it takes a bit longer than normal for me to fill your order.

If you’ve been following my blog or FB page for any length of time you’ve noticed I love soap stamping. I especially love it when I can create a scene. I invite you to go take a swim in the ocean and admire the fish. 😀
PARADISE REEF: begins with notes of nectarine, bird of paradise, and water lily, followed by middle notes of passion flower, orchid, and hyacinth. A well-rounded fragrance empowered by fresh air and salt water notes.
The picture doesn’t do this soap justice. Again I had a bad picture day when I photographed the spring soaps. But, it really is a cute soap with the fish and shell.
And guess what today’s my birthday! 😀 Use the code 40FREESHIP to get free shipping on orders over $40 plus I’ll throw in a gift lip balm with your order!

I was in the mood for COLOR! And more specifically neons! I haven’t used neons in so long. I don’t know why that is cause oh man they make some fun soaps!
HAWAIIAN GINGER: is a tropical array containing top notes of tangy pineapple, freshly-sliced summer melons, and crisp apple slices. Middle notes include iris, rose, jasmine, and cyclamen. Base notes of vanilla and musk make this fragrance a perfect blend.
Look at this loveliness! And the final cut version I was happy with too. This soap just puts a smile on my face.
I did a reverse imprint on this one, but it didn’t come out. The soap as you can see just was ashy and soft and isn’t staying to the bottom of the soap. Oh well!
