I know i'm so bad about posting but hopefully, I'm going to try to post more often about new products and such. In addition to that, i will begin doing horoscopes again! It's a bit time consuming but I really enjoyed doing it so stay tuned for that! I've been so busy with my other shop http://katdesignsnyc.etsy.com. I absolutely love both my shops but my jewelry business allows me to be more creative! Please check it out! Here is my blog as well http://katdesignsnyc.blogspot.com
Yarting is an annual event hosted by The Etsy Supply Street Team. Art + Yard Sale = Yart Sale! I have created a special section in my shop just for special yarty prices. This sale is not forever and will end June 16th so go crazy and buy great B&B items for less! Spend over $30 and you will receive free shipping.
I just joined twitter! LOL I didn't want to do it but it can be a powerful resource and it's not bad! It's kewl but like any other type of advertising it has to be maintained just like blogging. I'm still getting used to that but getting the hang of it! If you care to follow here is the link
I've never made a coconut lime soap before but I'm so glad I did! This soap smells fragrant but not overpowering. This mix is warm and tart and smells amazing! This bar weighs a great five ounces. Take this bar into the shower and feel the warmth of the beach, and let your troubles just flow away. This bar is now listed for sale so grab one up
Wow this soap smells absolutely amazing! Rich banana, vanilla, apple, sandalwood and rum. Smells rich and decadent so banana lovers this soap is for you! For those of you not familiar with vanilla in any product, it discolors it quickly as you can see from the picture. Skin softening Jojoba oil and oatmeal was added to this bar and kinda makes it look like chocolate nut brownie!
This soap is by far my favorite soap to make looks just like a oatmeal cookie bar loaded with goodies but only for your skin. Made with ground up oatmeal, honey, shea butter and jojoba oil. Feels absolutely amazing on your skin, leaves no build up just washes clean. This soap is great for those alllergic to scent but not good for those allergic to honey or shea butter. Shea butter is terrific for all skin types but bad for those with nut allergies.
My favorite bath and body item to make is rebatched cold processed bars. I get to enjoy part of the process without messing with lye. In case you would like to try your hand at it or just to see what I'm talking about please check out http://www.brambleberry.com/. There you will find so many bases to choose from and experiment. Rebatch bars are nothing like melt and pour soaps because it doesn't melt the same. In the beginning of my blog I showed you how to melt these bases using your oven.
Finally I have a bunch curing on my racks but the first one up is my Purity Goat Milk Soap bars with Shea Butter and Jojoba oil. That's it no colorant or fragrance just the good stuff!
As you can see rebatched (also known as Handmilled) soaps are nothing like cp bars because they have a more rustic look than smooth. Although they are rustic looking I like them best and have been told that rebatched soaps last longer. Samples will also be available for each bar listed.
I have a real job by day, but at night I make soaps, candles, lotions and perfume. My favorite way of making soap is rebatching. It gives me the feel of soaping without messing with lye. I would like to learn cold processed soapmaking one day, but not until I can devote the proper time it takes to learn it.
