I'm clearing out my current ribbons, making way for new 'stuff'. If you'd like to grab yourself a bargain (I'm selling at cost) then pop over to my facebook page for a browse :)

It has been a manic week again. I've got more soaps in the Soap Shop, including the minis.
I've added these organic face cloths too. I wanted something different to the face cloths that seem to be popular at the minute, so these are a twist on tradition.
There have been a few custom orders again, but these cushions are my favourite.
And there have been some rainbows amongst all the rain, clouds and miserable weather that still seems to be sweeping the country.

Phew, what a made week again. Whoever said January was the quiet month had it wrong ;)
I now have the melts and scrubs in the soap shop. There's lots planned, and more soaps becoming ready for adding too, so keep popping in.
My lovely Hubby secretly booked a trip to Warner Bros Studio Tour so I could see Hogwarts in snow. We had a fab time, and we were child free. Being home-educators it's a complete rarity having a day to ourselves that doesn't involve my work.
There's also been lots of bunting made this week, but this is the only one I can show you at the minute.
Right, off to make some melts for an order and cut some soaps, then I'm off to visit a craft fair :)

I had intended to add my soaps to a new Etsy shop many, many months ago (March 2012!!) but never quite had the time to set it up properly. I wanted to keep the two sides to my business completely separate with regards Etsy. Anyway, over the last month I have been slowing doing bits and now I have the first three varieties of soap in there...Y A Y!
I shall be adding more items over the coming days and weeks, so do keep popping in :)

*whispering* Lets pretend it hasn't been two months since I was last here!
I've had the madness that was Christmas...
I've made a burlesque outfit (not for me before anyone comments ;) )...
I've done bulk orders...
I've got a new soap - Chocolate!! (ready in 10 days time)...
I've made custom orders...
I've re-jigged the swatch card to make colour groups as there are so many to choose from now :D
These last few months have been ridiculously busy, I just didn't know whether I would get everything done. It's taken the whole of the Christmas 'quiet' period plus another three weeks for me to be able to want to do anything again. I love that my business is successful, but blimey, that was madness! I was hoping for a quiet January but I already have 5 orders in my book plus a list of people waiting for soaps as I just didn't have time to make new stock during November/December, then I sold out. Madness I tell ya!
Having had a couple of years to get used to the Craft Fair circuit, I've got a few I love doing so I'll be concentrating on those, rather than trying to fit in as many as I can. I've also got an Artisans Event in April and an Exhibition in June. The Etsy soap shop will also be open this weekend which I'm very excited about, as I'm planning a couple of new lines too.
Right, now I've ticked this off my list of things to do, I'd best get on with some secret badges ;)

I've reached over 500 sales in my Etsy shop so I'm having a little give-away to celebrate. You can leave a comment here or over on the facebook page photo and I'll draw a name out of the hat on Monday.
No more rules, and I'll post anywhere :)
**** The give-away has been drawn and is now closed. See my facebook page for further details. ****
