Ok, so my Lemon Meringue Soap just got featured in an Etsy treasury:

Lemon Meringue treasury

As I was happily browsing the summery splashes of color, my attention got drawn to the green cubes.  Are they soap?  I wondered.  But they look so puffy.  So I clicked on it.  And now I’m soooo regretting it!!  Not that it’s a bad shop, it’s tastefully done actually… and that’s the problem!  Now I want some marshmallows!!!!!!  I can’t get those marshmallows out of my head!  But I must resist!!  No, I can’t!  Yes, I can!  No… yes…  ugh.  That’s what happens when you put a pregnant lady together with fruity spongy marshmallow squares.  Mmmm…

So for those of you who are in the same boat that I am, head on over to miaMallows’ shop and check out her delicious treats!  As for me, I’m going to work on my will power for the next few hours.  But I don’t think I’m going to win this one…

Lemon Meringue Soap – YUM!

Lemon Meringue Soap 1

Since I crave sweets now that I’m in my 3rd trimester of pregnancy, I just can’t get desserts out of my head!  So here comes the Lemon Meringue Soap.  I’ve been staring at these bars since they’ve been made and I have to remind myself that they’re just soap!

I know that you would get a kick out of this because it smells REALLY good.  Quite yummy!  At least you don’t have to count calories with this!

The white layers are made of Goat’s Milk Glycerin Soap with Jasmine Essential Oil and Vitamin E.

The yellow layer is made of glycerin soap with Lemon essential oil and Lemongrass essential oil with Vitamin E.

You can find this in my Etsy shop.  Due to the nature of being hand cut, the size of each bar varies slightly.  You will get anywhere from 2.8 to 3.2 oz per bar.  $3 ea.

p.s. I think I have to get a snack now…

Back to school

DD is going to preschool summer camp in a month and needs a backpack!  So I did some looking around on Etsy and found these great and oh so cute ones – check them out!

It’s marketed for boys but DD likes red.  And I like this one because it’s quilted and has a zipper closure. InspiredbyGrands

This is a cute little bag with drawstrings.  I love the color combination!  DeerpathDesigns

I think DD would give up red for this CUTE doggie backpack!  BoutiqueID

Okay, that’s all the time I have to browse.  Time to sleep.  But I’m loving these backpacks!

Stay tuned… soap!

Oh yes… I am making soap now! I started when I wanted to make some for Mother’s Day and now I can’t stop! I will be posting pictures and put them in my shop soon!

No time to craft or list…

I haven’t had the time to make any jewelry or hair accessories lately.  I’ve been busy with everything else.  And now I’m taking on a project of organizing and redecorating our house.  That’s going to be a long project!  But I need to do it.  I feel like I can’t make anything until that is done.

So… in the mean time, I decided to feature some handmade goodness from other Etsy sellers on this blog.  I’m going to start with some home decor today since I need new coffee and end tables, sofas, and accesories for my family room.  Here are some stuff that grabbed my attention:

Circles table by michaelarras.  (I love the circle pattern with the traditional cherry colored wood.  It’s like you can have fun in a formal way – if that makes any sense.)

Dissipation Modern Wall Art by jalexstudios.  (I can appreciate this since my husband is into computers.)

Rustic Primitive Coffee Farm Table  by JosephSpinaleFurn. (For those of you who like the rustic country feel, they make cool country style farm reproduction furniture!)

Where am I?
