Moon Glow Dream Lover

Hi Everybody,
This is one of my new molds. I love everything about it: the simplicity, the detail, just everything. However, I am undecided about what to call it. Right now I am calling it Moon Glow because it has a soft golden shimmer, and I do love that song. I was originally going to call it Dream Lover, but that Bobby Darin song keeps going through my head. Not that it is a bad thing, but maybe there is a better name, a name that won't have me hearing songs all day.

I think this calls for a contest. Please choose your favorite or post a suggestion. If your name wins, you will win $20 worth of products of your choice. If I become fixated on one of my own choices, Moon Glow or Dream Lover, then I will use the random number thing to choose a winning post.

New Items

This has been a very busy week. I have been working on a few large orders and putting together some new items. This box of pears is the first thing I completed. I love the scent of fresh juicy pears, the look of a bowl of pears and the delicious taste of pears. These little soaps are guest soaps, and I stamped the hand colored design on the lid of the box.

I also made some soap in the shape of coal. They come with darling little beaded Christmas stockings. They are scented with the fragrance of Holiday Candy. These are so cute. The coal soap is colored with black oxide, which is a natural pigment.
My last offering is a golden sled. I love the look of this soap. It is elegant and traditional. The fragrance I used for this one is Vanila Champagne, a new favorite of mine and my customers.

I'll have more next week, but for now I want to wish everyone a very happy Thanksgiving. May you and your families and friends share the joy of being together as we begin this holiday season.  Thanks for visiting my blog this week.

The Ultimate Gift Basket

The Ultimate Gift Basket. What  a great idea! Members of Make Mine Pink are preparing another wonderful surprise for everyone. Each participating member is contributing one fabulous item for the Ultimate Gift Basket. One lucky person will have the opportunity to win this fabulous prize. However, even those who do not win have a special opportunity. Make Mine Pink Members are all creating an Ultimate Gift Basket category in their boutiques. Each item in the Ultimate Gift Basket will be available for purchase.That means buyers can create their own Ultimate Gift Baskets.

I just love that idea. Pictured above is my contribution to the Ultimate Gift Basket. It is a Pfaltzgraff Candy Jar in the Winterberry Pattern filled with hand crafted soap in the shape of mini snowballs. I used my new camera to take this picture. I just love my new little PINK camera. But I love Christmas and Make Mine Pink even more.

Thanks for visiting!
