I guess it's safe to say that my shop is my second home. When one owns their own shop this tends to happen. I am fortunate that my second home is furnished with a vast variety of hand made goods that are lovingly created. Whether it be a safe non chemical skin treatment or a hand crafted bar of moisture rich soap, everything is made with love
Attention to detail is first focused on the inside and then more detailed attention is presented for the outside. I'm a firm believer that the outside encourages you to explore the inside. This time of year prototypes are churning while holiday soap is being cut, wrapped and sitting in an assigned spot at the shop.
As the holiday season grows closer, I'm reminded of my vast wealth. Not monetary value, but rather the bountiful blessing of creating and making a living from what I love.
When I stop and think about it, my mind gets overwhelmed with gratitude. I don't take my blessings lightly. I'm thankful each and every day, and often reminded from simple thoughts how lucky I am to live this life loved.
The Holiday Enchantment has arrived!
This season I'm introducing a series of The Twelve Days of Christmas Soaps.
A Partridge in a Pear Tree...Happy, Happy, Joy, and more Joy!
I'm kind of excited about this seasons holiday motif!
On the home front we're digging out the quilts and baking yummy fall treats. I have a peck of apples sitting on the kitchen table waiting to be sliced and then used to make a crisp or pie.
