What's Coming In The Fall

Spiced Carrot Cake Whipped Soap Available Now!

I have been taking a little break from making soap. I am up to my eyeballs in soap. I recently had a HUGE sale on my website a couple of weeks ago which was very successful. I had a lot of my bars really discounted so I can start to move them out. I will do that again after the holidays so everyone can get in on the deal.

800th Sale at Etsy!!!

Oh my how it has taken so long to reach this milestone. All summer it has been so so slow. I am so very happy to have finally reached this point in my shop. I feel like I fell behind and never was able to recover and get back up again. But there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.

So I want to offer a FREE BAR OF SOAP OF YOUR CHOICE FOR THE 800TH CUSTOMER AT MY ETSY SHOP. Thats right you heard me correctly. This has been a very long and slow summer for me for sales and now that I have finally reached my 800th sale I want to give something back.

But there is always a brighter side of things. I use to always say, "things may seem bleak at the moment but the only way is up again". Sometimes you can't see it at the time when things are bad but there is only way from the bottom and that is up. What…

One of Etsy's Great Shops

When I get my order it is well packaged and she also sends me other scent samples to try which got me coming back from more. Not only does she make lovely incense but other great gifts too.

Take a peek at some of her items in her shop.

20 Hand-dipped Charcoal Incense Sticks with your Choice of Scent

I then soak the incense sticks for 24 hours in an aromatherapy blend of highly-scented oils. Once comp…
