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.

Change is Good

I am revamping my Shop page to include new bath products that I have been creating. I am very excited to share these creations with everyone! I love trying new things and I have a lot up my sleeve 😉

The website will be going through some changes as well as new products that will be added to the Shop page. Just in time for the busy Holiday shopping season!! Get ready for some new, fun sugar scrub scents and types, as well as new products such as foot soaks and bath salts just to name a couple!

Trust me you will love these new additions. I am already dreaming about soaking away the days’ stress in my bath tub with a new bath bomb.

 

 

Happy New Year!

Today is the first day of 2016! Wow! Where has the time gone? Every first day of the New Year I try to take an opportunity to evaluate the areas of my life that I would like to improve upon. Yes, I am one of those people that make New Years resolutions.

Pinterest is amazing at finding you ideas for New Years resolutions. I cannot say enough good things about this fabulous website though in general!

I am going to start off the early New Year by making a vision board. Yes, I found this idea on Pinterest….(photo credit:https://www.pinterest.com/pin/118501033920940323/Photo Credit)

One of my resolutions is to get healthier in the New Year by working out more. I found some great work out ideas on Pinterest that I am going to try! Go ahead and check out the great New Years resolution ideas that Pinterest has to offer. Who knows you can find out more about yourself too in the process 😉

Drop 10!

 

 

 

Cheers to the New Year 2016!

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.

Surprises!

Hey guys! I had a fabulous first Anniversary weekend! That included today as well, since Shawn was off of work today. He surprised me with a trip to Kalahari yesterday. We had a lot of fun there riding all of the water rides. For those of you not familiar with Kalahari it is a water park in Sandusky, Ohio near Cedar Point. I had a surprise of my own to give to Shawn for our anniversary!

Here is what I did: I attached little “love notes” with some extra construction paper that I had stating things that I love about Shawn onto each balloon string. I bought nine balloons at the Deals dollar store for $1.00 each! Not too shabby 😉 He loved his surprise!
