4 years old and surfing etsy!

So while I was at home on vacation I showed my nephew who is 4 1/2 etsy. Well he loved the "smashed animals" store called they are on summer break but he enjoyed surfing the sold items. He was pretty good at surfing the site without help, never to young to start right?!?!?

He totally wants a smashed fish :)

Marketing to a famous person

Few more days of vacation left for me then it is back to the 9-5 job.

About 1.5 years ago I worked up a big marketing package of my candles and soap which I sent to Kat Von D of the LA Ink show. See the advantage of living in Hollywood is that there are a number of famous people around me that I can send things to.

These are the pictures of what I basically sent. I made up a tool box filled with 3 candles(the blue one was for the messenger who took the package to Kat), tons of soaps and some aroma ornies. I also included what is called a leave behind(bottom picture) which is basically a handmade photo catalog of my work. Never got a call back but it was worth a try right?!!?

Whipped Body Frosting

So yes I am on vacation until July 26 but I do have a few things to blog about while I am away from home and soap making.

Today I am going to talk about a recent Etsy purchase I made from

I went on a search for some new face cream I spent some time looking at all the ingredients people used to make the creams and it lead me to Verbena Custom Blends.
I ended up selecting this face cream and while I was in the shop I was really digging the whipped body frosting. This shop does some of the best scent combos and will even make whatever scent you want. I decided on one that smelled like Marshmallow, Coconut, Butter cream cupcake mine was custom blend to include all ofthe scents I love.

I have to say I love love that whipped body frosting I smell so good when I wear it. I ended up using some of my soap money to buy 2 more for treat presents for my mother and sister who live in Colorado. My mom selected Buttery Toffee Carmel and my sister picked Cherry Almond Coconut which I have to say smelled really good as well. Both packages came with lots of great samples for soap and the yogurt whipped body creams.

This is a great find on Etsy and I know I will be back once I get my stuff all used up. Make sure you all stop by and check it out!

soaps for the kids

So I am going on vacation next Saturday so I have been working on making soaps for my two nephews and my neice(all 4 and under). Used the idea from The Soap Queens video and made some other kid friendly soaps. The kids sure do love fun soaps like these and I think it will help Aunt Misty score some points :)
