Happy New Year!

Hello Everyone,
Happy New Year. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. It's only been a few weeks, but as always, it seems much longer since we shopped, baked,  and prepared for the holidays. It was hectic and lots of fun, but I am glad to get back to my usual slower pace.

I have been working on a few new soap boxes. I keep trying new ideas and learning new techniques as I go along. I have always loved unusual boxes; they are a delight and also help me keep organized. So my goal is to create not just a gift box, but something that can be useful long after the soap is gone.  A number of customers  like them, so I am encouraged to keep going.  Here a photos of my latest. Yes, that is Audrey Hepburn superimposed on Gustave Caillebotte's painting, Paris, A Rainy Day. I just love Audrey, and I plan to add a few more boxes with her image.

These boxes will all be listed on Make Mine Pink's Friday Shopping Event next Friday. The theme is "In with the New." Don't forget to visit Make Mine Pink this and every Friday for shopping with a twist.. The boutiques are all preparing fabulous new items just for you! 
Till the next time,

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. Enjoy your visit.
