I have met some really awesome Etsy sellers on Etsy this past year and since I have been featuring some of them, brings me so much joy to show others what Etsy sellers have to offer. I met this Etsy seller on the sites chat room and was so intrigued by their shop that I asked them if they would like to be features this blog.

The shop is called MnMTreasures Below are some of the fabulous items they have in their shop. :-)

More New Soaps are Available

I have been concentrating more on my soaps then my other products as my soaps are important to me because this is where I started from the beginning making soap. Soap sales are very slow compared to my other products so I am going to focus on making more great soap.

First on my list is the Blue Mountain Soap. This is made from scratch using the cold process method. Made with great oils and wonderful creamy lather. This was my first real attempt at creating swirls in my soap. I am a not a swirly type soap person and prefer not to have much but it seems that people like having fancy colors and swirls in their soaps. After attempting this, I was very satisfied with the results as I am not very good at swirling colors.

Second on the list is my Coconut Lime Verbena. I have been getting a lot of request for this scent so I made it into a soap. I do not have this listed as one of my scents but I did buy this fragrance just for making the soap with. I am not a lime person but after smelling …

New Featured Whipped Soaps

I have a new featured soap this week. Spiced Carrot Cake Whipped Soap. Fantastic lather, great scent, and absolutely great bar of soap. I have been getting many request from other sellers on how to make this. Yes the soap is very intriguing and I know there are so many people curious about making it. It wasn't easy for me at first but with practice I managed to come up with my own unique style of making them.

In case you have missed the others in my line of Whipped Soaps, this one is one of my favorites too. Huckleberry Whipped Soap. This is featured in my banner at the top. On the top of the soap is scented sprinkles of sugar. A nice touch and a little exfoliant.

This soap is called Tropical Summer. I like this one as it has a combination of different fruit blends. It reminds me of laying on a beach drinking a fruity drink. Lovely scent for the Spring and Summer time and loads of lather. And yes it floats in the water too.

Another favorite of mine. This is called Love Spell(VS Type…

NEW FEATURED ETSY SELLER

Why yes there is another featured seller this week. A new and upcoming shop at Etsy. FireDancer Designs

FireDancer Designs has cards that are one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork, many of them created from their original block prints. Also, if handmade paper is a part of the card, it is paper they have made from recycled materials.

Lets take a look at some of what FireDancer Designs has to offer.

A piece of handmade paper has been embedded into a vanilla scented pillar candle. When it is lit, a beautiful glow is created, highlighting the leaves in the paper. The candle stands 3 inches tall and is 3 inches wide. It comes wrapped with raffia and adorned with a natural wooden bead.


Let your friends know you are thinking of them by sending them one of these beautiful sewn cards. Each card has a piece of handmade paper sewn onto it with white thread. The handmade paper has flecks of pink flowers in it. Cards measure 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. The light pink card also has lace-like handmade paper sewn un…

What New at Pegasus Handmade Soaps?

Well I have been working hard to update my website. I have totally redesigned it. You have no idea unless you have a website and do all of the designing and arranging how much time it takes to do. Now that I have pretty much finished the colors schemes, rearranging, adding and deleting. Now I am working on new and improved labels. Now that I use waterproof labels I wanted a more professional looking label. I am happy with these for now but I know how I am, I probably will change them again, but no time soon as I have to retake all the products and that is soooooo time consuming as well. As I don't keep my products on shelves because I do not use preservatives in most of my products, I have what you call "demo" items just for photo taking. So I have a shelf just for those. I have to relabel all of them and then off to take the photos. I am the worse photo taker. I am not very good at it so I pretty much stick with the solid white background without setting up shots with …

Etsy On Martha Stewart

Well if you haven't heard of Etsy, you should by now. The founder of Etsy Rob was on Martha Stewart showcase some of Ety's finest Sellers. This is a great boost for Etsy since there are so many people that still don't know about this marketplace. I still run into people and I tell them I have a shop here and they say "what is Etsy?" Even some of my family members never heard of Etsy.

And of course I have to mention my lovely Etsy shop of handmade soaps and goodies too. Gosh I sure would have loved to have my products feature LOL.

Rob was on Etsy February 29th, 2008 to showcase items from Etsy sellers. Did you miss it? Here is a clip of the segment of the show.
