Boy, what a year!! I hope you are well and managing the stress of this past year. We are OK, praise God, and are looking forward to the Holidays and a new Year.
The craft fairs were all cancelled this past year and I have really missed all the personal interactions. The fairs are so much fun and hopefully next year will be bigger and better.
On a positive note, due to Covid 19 and staying at home, I have worked on gaining new skills and keeping busy in the garden. I even tried to grow a vegatable garden this year. They say you learn from your mistakes. (I guess I had a lot of them-LOL!)
Anyway, between the digging in the dirt with my hands, the constant hand washing, and using hand sanitizers, my hands really got dry! I remembered that my best friend, Victoria had given me a lotion bar last year that she had made. It was great! It even worked on my dry cracked winter feet:)
I worked on developing my own line of lotion bars and would love for you to try them.
Until we can see each other again, stay well, keep positive and busy, have faith in God above, error on the side of caution, and be kind to yourselves and each other. Love You.

I would like to say "Thank You" to all my new customers and returning customers that have kept me so busy, especially these last few months. I have truly enjoyed meeting and talking with all of you. I wish all a very Happy Holidays. May it be Healthy, and filled with Peace, Joy, and Love.
After the New Year, I'll be researching and expanding my product line. I hope to be able to add more scents and to include more items geared to men. Please feel free to email me with any advice or questions you may have. I will also be setting up my schedule for next year and will post as soon as I have an idea of which ones I'll be doing. Take care and see you soon. Christine

Hope your 2018 ended on a good note and I wish you a peace filled and hopeful 2019. Last year was a good one for my family and myself. This past fall I relocated my 91 year Mother closer to me and although it was a lot of effort and change, it has worked out beautifully. I am happy to not have to drive 2 hrs to New York every week, and Mom is so much more at ease in a safer environment.
I now have a bit of time to update my site, products, and computer program. My soaps have been a big hit this past year as well as the jewelry. I realized that in order to meet the demand for my luscious soaps, it was time to raise my prices slightly. I also decided to change the packaging on them. I felt that wrapping them in the organza bags did not protect them when they were being handled by so many people at Fairs. I now have them in clear see through bags. The small ones are still in a small organza bag and then they are put into the clear bag. The jewelry side of the business now changes so rapidly that I have decided to discontinue posting new photos on the site. You will do better to come see me at a Craft Fair to see the current selection. If there is something specific you would like to ask me to make, please feel free to contact me through the site.
I will post a listing of the Craft Fairs I intend to do as soon as it is updated. Until then, stay healthy and happy.
