Show and Tell Monday Give Away

Hello Everybody,

At last, I have something to show and tell. I have been in a holiday soap making frenzy. I will share a few of my designs, but they are still in the rough stages. Read on to find out about the giveaway.

The first is a Christmas Stocking. the soap itself has a gold metalic shimmer. The colors are also shimmery mica. I have a few other options which are not yet completed.

The next is a snowflake with just a touch of pearly white mica. I also make this in a clear soap, but everyone seems to like this one.

The third is a holly soap. This is just made with layers of different colors and a few touches of soap paint (made from mica) on the berries. Next to the holly is Joy, again just layers of clear soap topped with an opaque white soap.

Last is the Santa Soap. This is still a work in progress. It requires lots of layers of color. It is still not right. I won't point out my mistake, but I bet someone will find it. You will probably find more than one, but the first person to find the one I am thinking of will win $10 worth of products from my web site. Take a look at these versions of Santa, and good luck.

SBS Teas

Hi Everyone,
I want to tell you all about a wonderful new company, SBS Teas. Today I received my first order. Even though SBS is a tea company, I ordered some coffee. The packaging is great and the coffee is wonderful. Take a look at my photos.

The photo on the right shows my Brazil Baggio Platinum Decaf with the SBS Favorite Blends Sampler. I also received two biscotti as a treat for ordering. On the left is my selection of favorite blends. Notice the stirrer. Notice that the biscotti are missing. I ate them. Photography builds up an appetite.
I was fortunate to meet Sharon and her mother at the Make Mine Pink Retreat. We were at the same table for dinner. They are both very lovely ladies, and as you can see, their products are top notch.

Hello Everyone,Welcome to my new blog . And I really mean new. This is all so new to me, but I am sure I will soon be up to speed. I knew it was time to create a blog when I started feeling that I was missing too much fun. I plan to share ideas, favorite things, and information. I love making soaps and toiletries, so you can be sure to see some ideas and tips related to bath and body care. I have so many favorite things; I hope to share them with you in fun ways.
