Leisure


I was asked by the Artisans In Action if I would like to enter a piece into their exhibition entitled ''Words and Music, Rhymes and Reasons''.  I chose to do one of my favourite poems by W H Davies. 







The exhibition will run from Saturday 28th June to Sunday 6th July in the Lakeside Room at Waters Edge Visitors Centre, Barton upon Humber.  There will be a good selection of pieces by local artisans for you to look through...I can't wait to see what else there is.  Some of the artisans will be there during that week too (I'll be there Tuesday-Friday 10-1).

May???


Well, I'm not quite sure where the month of May went!  I've been super busy, am still super busy, but I have not vanished ;)  

Above is a new flower brooch that a customer requested.  These will be available in the shop asap.

Inspiration


 A new style of brooch, inspired by the wreath I made for our bathroom...




...which then turned into a hair clip (as per a customer's request).  I love my job ;)

First..


The last two weekends have seen my first two events of the year.  The first was the Easter Fayre at Waters Edge in Barton upon Humber over the bank holiday weekend.  I had a fabulous weekend, in a different room to where I normally am, with lovely people.




The next weekend was the Artisans In Action Event.  This was the first time I only had my soaps and bath products with me.  You could even make yourself a bath salt sachet :)  I had a fabulous time here too, with great feedback from people, some of whom turned into customers.  My smile grew wider a couple of days later when I'd had a customer from the event purchase more soap from my Etsy shop as she'd loved the bar she bought originally so much that she had to try some more!

Update - New Felt


The last two, bringing my normal range up to 80 wonderful colours!  


I'm also introducing these new 'Painters' felts.  Hand-painted using colours typical of famous painters (hence the name).  They are a little bit different to anything else out there, so I thought I'd give them a go.  Here's the first six out of eleven.  If they are popular I'll get the others in the shops too.

Update - Etsy Soap Shop



Lots of new things in here.  Firstly there's the wash mitts...to go with the face cloths.  Organic cotton towelling and gorgeous cotton bias.


We also have six new bath salts for you to luxuriate in.  Made with himalayan and epsom salts, essential oils and botanicals, these are a little bit of bathroom heaven.  If you don't have a bath (like me!) you can use these as a foot soak.

There is also the Extra Special Soaps - Rose, Heavenly (patchouli, sandalwood & bergamot), and Chamomile & Calendula.  

Ready in the next couple of days is the new Activated Charcoal Soap.  This is going to be great for using as a pore cleanser..like a mini face mask..as the charcoal is great at removing dirt and grease from the skin.  I can't wait to try this one!



An instant favourite in the shop are these cleanser pads.  Great for using as a mini wash pad or as a make-up remover pad.  Made with organic cotton towelling and/or unbleached flannel, there are available in three different ways.

Pop over to the Shop for a browse :)

Update - Ebay Shop


I finally succumbed and opened an Ebay shop for the felt.  I really wasn't sure whether to or not as I would have to charge a little more to cover their charges, but it seems to be going great so far!  So, if you can't get to the Etsy shop you can always see me over on Ebay ;)
