Givember and a giveaway

This fall, Bramble Berry contacted me and told me that they enjoyed my blog. (Aww--thanks!) I was then asked if I would like to do a soapy project using some Bramble Berry products and then write about it on my blog. Hmmm. After pondering such a silly question for approximately 1.5 seconds, I began contemplating my project. The possibilities were nearly overwhelming, but didn't take me long to choose a project, however--it just jumped out at me.  And what was my chosen project, you ask?  I'll show you tomorrow and the three days after that.

But in the meantime, I will share this with you so you can get a jump start on your ordering.  (It takes me forever to make an order for soap supplies.  I start off with my list of absolute needs, then I browse, add "maybes" to the list, daydream, watch the "maybes" become needs, check my budget, which leads to editing, order, and while I wait for my order to arrive, I remember all that I forgot.)  Multiple orders wouldn't be so bad this month, actually.

Anyway, any orders from Bramble Berry through the month of November--or Givember, as its known as this year--will be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate IF you include the code GIVEMBER50 with your order.  In addition, there are more reasons to check out Bramble Berry's Givember festivities this month.  Do project newsletters, free label templates, and free samplers tickle your fancy?  Look for more details right here.

And now about the giveaway.... A lovely young woman, whom I have enjoyed getting to know through emails, did a review of some of my products recently.  In addition to a review, she is also orchestrating a giveaway of a few of my favorite products.  You can enter here.  You can also follow her blog, Eden's Evaluations, so you can read about other product reviews and more giveaways.


  1. Wow you are so lucky and the packaging of your box of BrambleBerry goodies looks great.

  2. I know--it was like getting a present!

  3. Thank you so much for participating, Amy! :)

Last Chance least for now

 Hello all! In preparation for our big move from our rental next month, I've put my entire Etsy shop on sale now through Friday. I'll re-open as soon as I'm able but I'm not sure exactly when that will be! So much is up in the air right now.  In the meantime, help me make my move a little lighter!! And for my local shoppers, I'm restocking several of my stores next week with my remaining inventory. Thanks to all of you for your business the past 12 years and I'll see you on the flip side!

Dandelion Zebra wrap-up

Oh, happy day!  I found out last night that I won the Dandelion Zebra swirl's soap challenge on the Great Cakes Soapworks blog . I'm thrilled!  This was my entry. Thanks heaps, Amy!  And Bramble Berry  for sponsoring!  Christmas craft shows and experimenting for a new retail location won't allow me time to enter this coming month's challenge, but I look forward to rejoining the fun soon!  If you have never joined a challenge, I highly recommend it. Just in case anyone thinks I'm some kind of pro now; here are the pictures of my first attempt at this technique, as I promised. It was a mess of a batch, albeit salvageable, because a lot of soap oozed out of the freezer paper liner and the texture is odd and spongy.  I still like the colors I chose and it had a lot of potential to be gorgeous, but all that aside...there is nothing Dandelion-esque about the swirl!  So I'm glad I gave it another try. However, it is hardening and doesn't zap.  So

Spring and Summer 2021 Soaps--while they last!

 Hello all!  Just a quick post to let you know of my latest soaps. I haven't stocked any of my stores with them yet, so you have the chance to snag them first! Anyway, here's the link to my Etsy store, 10th Ave Shop.  and as always, orders over $35 ship free.   Rhubarb Pie Lime Vibes Lilac Blossom Asian Pear Lily Peony White Tea Lemon Blossom I also wanted to give you a heads up that I've been contemplating some changes after 12 years of my little soap business and I hope to implement them this fall. I'm still working on the details but I'll likely be discontinuing a number of fragrances, so get them while you can. Thanks and stay tuned for more soaps and fragrances this summer!
