Raspberry porter, made with beer (of course) brewed here in Monroe...
sweet pea, as you remember, one of my challenge soaps...anise. I've never really had a strong opinion about anise one way or another, but this simple anise essential oil soap won me over. It's so spicy and refreshing!
And a funny thing happened recently. A super fun lady named Ann taught my sisters and me how to applique. That's not exactly the funny thing, but it was a good time... I fell in love with the technique and made myself this messenger bag which I now use all the time.
Someone happened to be passing by as I was showing my bag to a friend and this complete stranger asked me to design one for her. So I made one. And then another. And then a couple more (because I have nothing else to do, you understand...snicker...) I've put a couple of the bags I've made in my soap shop for now--what do you think of them? I don't know if I should combine soap and bags into one shop, or even how far I will go with this accidental venture, but who can have too many creative outlets? That's a rhetorical question, Mister, I'm not asking you to answer that!
