Bonjour Mademoiselle!

Bonjour! This weekend I created a new fragrance. I am calling it "Mademoiselle."  It is a rose and amber combination, with other floral notes. I was actually inspired by the new box I created. You can see it in my first picture. The caption reads, "The girl in the pink dress dances every dance." This box inspired me to do a new soap in pink, but my purchase of pink ribbon with crepe paper ruffles gave me the name. As you can see, the pink ribbon is stamped with the word "Mademoiselle." I purchased  ribbon on etsy from Bit of Vintage and she included this lovely pink perfection with my purchase. So of course, I went back to buy more. I will also be creating a larger box which incorporates the ribbon. I just could not wait to show it to you, so for now it is making my mediocre pictures look much better than they really are.

Yesterday I made a daffodil soap. I tried out some new soap paint, and I love it. I may go back to painting soap again. I especially like the soft look of the transparent colors. The borders are highlighted with a touch of mica. This soap will be available in 2 fragrances, One is "April Showers," and it is as fresh and clean as it sounds; the other is "Fresh Cut Flowers," a light floral just perfect for spring.

Only 2 weeks ago, we were buried in snow. Now we are eagerly awaiting Spring. All we have to do is get through the wind and the rain.   Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week.

New Boxes

Hello Everybody,
 It seems like I am creating a habit of getting things done, just not in the order of importance. I am having family visiting me tomorrow. I should have spent the day getting the place spruced up for them. But noooo. I completed 2 boxes instead. Then I  played around with my craft supplies. But after all, they are family, so they can stand to see the place looking a little ragged around the edges. It should create the illusion that I am very very busy.
Anyway, I really like these boxes better than my painted boxes. I am planning to add quite a few more selections over the next few weeks. I hope you'll be back to see them.
Thanks for stopping by. Spring will soon be here!!!.
