Still snowing here. Enjoying the sledding and skiing while we can. Here is the latest batch of soap curing, Bamboo Whisper with shea butter. Also, just uploaded these spring like ceramics to my etsy shop.
What a delight to open the kiln and see these:-). This collection is all about the hand painted look, almost a watercolor feel. I created the different pieces as sets. They are available for purchase on my etsy shop.
Hope everyone had a fab holiday! I am finally back to the pottery wheel, soap making and body butter creation! Here are the first samples of the new season, my color splash collection. They have a bit of personality as you can see:-) New soap will be ready to ship soon. It is curing now. Smells great! Just made some new body butter for this wintery cold season. You can check it out here.
Just cut my new soap, a delightful lemon scrub soap. Looks great- will be ready in a few weeks as it needs to sit around and cure for a bit. Have been playing around with clay and trying out some shaped flowers. Not sure if they will make it in the kiln, it is hard enough to keep them in one piece as they dry now:-)
Worked on some new soap packaging for the holidays.
Our chickens have free range of the place and they make use of it. They are out all day exploring. They tend to jog whenever crossing a clearing, trying to avoid being picked off from above. It is pretty funny to watch. Earlier this week it was quite chilly, perfect weather for cheesy mash potatoes. So I went out to the garden and dug up some:-)
