Gifting for the Holidays

Hi Friends!

I am starting to put together gift baskets and other goodies for the upcoming Holiday season. I have added a gift basket in my Shop page that is ready to be shipped. It is priced at $20.00 each plus shipping. The red gift basket is filled with a bath salt ornament, snowflake ornament, lip balm and a gingerbread man sugar scrub bar. If you would like to purchase please comment below and/or message me with the quantity that you need to purchase as well as your shipping details.

I will be posting additional gift baskets/bundles for purchase shortly in my Shop page for all of your gift giving needs!

Here is a snapshot of the red gift basket, that I was mentioning above ready for purchase below:

I will have these gifts and more at the upcoming Holiday open house,”A Refined Affair” with my great friend Stephanie. Stephanie is the owner of Lorraine’s Cottage (see her beautiful work here: http://www.lorrainescottage.com/) and the open house will be held at her lovely home in Mayfield Heights, Ohio from 10am-5pm. There will be about six artisans (me included) ready to share their work with you.

Spring Fever (Even Though it’s Winter)

Hey there!

So I have some Spring fever that I am feeling. Yes, I realize that it is Winter but I am already longing for warmer days and blossoming flowers. That is why I am going to tell you all about one of my many new scents for Spring and Summer.

Honeysuckle. That is one of my new scents that I have come up with. This sugar scrub has the same coconut oil base as many of the other scrubs. It also has Honeysuckle essential oil inside and it smells divine!

This scent reminds me of the very first bloom in the Spring. That very first flower that decides to wake up on a rainy day. It is the most beautiful thing that I have ever seen since that cold, long Ohio Winter.

I am selling Honeysuckle on my Etsy shop, as well as the Mint and Spa Day sugar scrubs. All 3 of these scents will be sold for $5.00 each (not including shipping), for the smaller jars, whereas the larger jars will be sold between $6-$20. Keep checking my Etsy shop for updated listings and prices!

This listing will be sold for $12.00 each, plus shipping. There is quite a bit of sugar scrub that can fill up this large jar! (It’s 2.64inx2.64×4.5). Adorned with burlap, scrub spoon and pretty white and yellow flower with rhinestone in the middle.

Busy Bee

Hey guys! Sorry I have been M.I.A lately. Been doing a lot of craft show organizing and finalizing everything for the show this upcoming Sunday. How was everyone’s weekend? I had a blast at the Halloween party that Shawn and I went too. We also went to Bloodview Haunted House in Brecksville, Ohio with Val and Roy! That was a ton of fun. I highly recommend checking out Bloodview for your next haunted house getaway!

I am so ready for Halloween this Friday! Our neighborhood has trick-or-treat that day from 6-8pm. The weather forecast isn’t looking so hot though! It is supposed to rain and be chilly. Yuck 😦 This will be Shawn and I’s second Halloween in our neighborhood ( We moved to Seven Hills last year, when we got married).

Okay, so the items I will be selling at the craft show will be the candy cane hot cocoa, spa day, hot cocoa and pumpkin pie sugar scrubs. I will also be selling chocolate covered pretzels (with sprinkles on top of course!) Each sugar scrub will be sold for $5.00 and the chocolate covered pretzels will be being sold two for one for a $1.00. I will be selling the candy cane hot cocoa, spa day and hot cocoa sugar scrubs online on my Shop page (on this blog!) starting November 1st! The pumpkin pie sugar scrub is already for sale under my Shop page right now, so feel free to start your early Holiday shopping with pumpkin pie sugar scrub 😉

Here is some pictures of the pumpkin pie sugar scrub finished and in the making 🙂

Chalkboard Fun!

Hello blog world! I am busy getting my first craft show things together and organized all of this week. I am excited about some of my decor that I am having at my little sugar scrubs craft table! Trending right now is chalkboard decor. If you look on Pinterest, chalkboard decor and other chalkboard crafts are all over the website right now! I just love this cute trend. I have been using this chalkboard trend before it was even considered to be a trend.

Candy Cane and Hot Cocoa Sugar Scrub

Did I just make your mouth water with the post title? I sure hope so! Who doesn’t LOVE hot cocoa during the cooler/cold months?! I love hot cocoa and especially the scent of it. I also LOVE the smell of peppermint in the air during the holidays. When I enter my mother’s home during Christmas I always get a waft of peppermint, pine and sugar cookies baking in the oven. Sugar cookies + Hot Cocoa = Warm and fuzzy feeling!!!!

See where I am going with this…..

Today I made candy cane hot chocolate sugar scrub and hot cocoa sugar scrub! Boy, does it smell good. I am very impressed with how both of them came out and cannot wait to sell them for Christmas and the holiday season at the craft show! Trust me, you are going to want a FREE (did I say FREE?!) sample of this stuff! I am in love. Totally making some for my own use as well.

PS- This candy cane hot chocolate sugar scrub will be available for purchase for $5.00 each at my Shop page starting in November 😀
