Petite Cherie

Hello Everybody,
Just one of the things I have been working on this week is another soap box. This one is called Petite Cherie. It is named after a favorite fragrance of Sherri Mitchell, from Punk Rose Paper. Sherri is the talented lady who made the tag featured on the lid of the box. I must confess, when I first smelled the fragrance, I was not crazy about it, but like so many scents, its true beauty comes out after being soaped, as we soapmakers like to say. Petite Cherie is one of those fragrances. Fresh, green, and floral, Petite Cherie it is a fragrance of innocence and simplicity. This tag seemed a perfect match. Thanks Sherri inspiring a new fragrance for Savon Marie.

Out to Sea with Smooth Lips

Hello Everybody,

As some of you know, I have been decluttering all week. It has been very rewarding, but I am beginning to run out of steam today. So I decided to take a short break and let all blog readers in a closeout sale in advance. The Rubber Duckies and the lip balms will be discontinued. The Rubber Duckies are already part of the Friday Flea Market and the Lip Balms will be up this Friday. Blog readers can order now.
I want to focus more on making soap, so the lip balms will be offered on sale. For $2, you will recive a large tube of all natural lip balm and a smaller one free. I will also include one in each order until supplies run out.
The Rubber Duckie soap is being dicontinued even though it is a good seller. Shipping the Duckie soap has always been a problem. The Rubber Duckies will be on sale Buy one Get One while supplies last.
The Body Wash, Lotion, Lotion Spray, Body Mist, and Primrose Moisturizing Cream will continue to be part of the product line.
If you are interested in purchasing the closeout items, you can order from the web site. Just visit the At the Flea Market Page. Thanks for stopping by.

The Beautiful and The Adequate

Hello Everyone,

It has been a while, but this has been a very busy summer. New soaps are coming soon. Look for Halloween soap, a modern cameo, and more. Today however, I am featuring some soap boxes. One set was made by me. The other set has very little of my work, and they are beautiful. (I call them as I see them.) Pictures of both boxes are shown here. Let's start with the beautiful boxes. The focal point of the box is a tag made by Sherri of Punk Rose Paper. I was introduced to Sherri's work by Susan of The Dutch Rose . Sherri sells wholesale only, and her prices are as incredible as her work. You can see how beautiful her work is. The tag can be removed from the box, so the buyer has an extra little gift in addition to the free gift I always include with my orders. Thanks Sherri for your beautiful creations and for solving a problem for an ameteur crafter who happens to be all thumbs.

That leads us to the second set. These boxes are my attempt to make a soap box reminiscent of a jewelry box. Each of these boxes is painted to create a marbled or shabby chic look. Faux gemstones have been adhered to the top of the box. I plan to use these for next week's Make Mine Pink Friday. The theme is "Mother's Jewelry Box. These boxes, which are made of wood, hold 2 bars of Savon Marie soap and will be included free with any purchase of 2 Savon soaps.

Well, that's just part of what I have been doing all summer. I am very happy to say that I have been very busy for the past few months with orders. I am very grateful to all of my customers and friends. You have all inspired me. Thanks to you, I am always trying new soaping that is, the crafting thing has got to go.

Thanks for stopping by!
