It's officially begun


The Spring Craft season kicked off for me this past weekend at the Marysville Spring Craft Show.  It felt really great to be back at the shows.  I met some amazing new people and had a great time chatting with old friends.  I was extremely lucky to get a great spot, not only was it right by the entrance, but I got to be next to my favorite fellow artisan; Teria from Huaracha Studios.  It's nice to be close to a friend that knows your stuff as well as you, especially for those much needed bathroom breaks. 


I got great feedback about my table displays, and everyone loved the new soap shelf my father built me for Easter.  I am however going to change up the color of my tablecloths, and stain my shelving to add a little pop to my booth, it seems like to much light brown to me.  I haven't quite decided what color yet, maybe some black or a splash of blue somewhere, so if anyone has any ideas feel free to share!


I have been super busy in the workshop working on a bunch of soaps for the summer season.  I find myself a little apprehensive about my first full on summer season.  I have 5/ 2-3 day festivals that I want to do this summer, and in July I have a festival every single weekend.  So I have been a busy bee soaping diva these past few weeks.  I had a few ideas that flopped, but am looking forward to sharing all the new stuff with everyone. 

Have a great day!

  1. Your table looks amazing! Great job! Your packaging is so pretty too. I really like your new shelf and I like the natural wood because it matches the theme of your natural labels, etc.. I think the tablecloth could add the pop of color you are wanting. Anything you decide will be fab I'm sure!

    1. thanks Holly. That is exactly my thoughts too just a nice clear coat on the new shelf, maybe add some of the blue from my business cards and website into a table cloth or something!

  3. I love your table! Don't change a thing. Your "pop" of color comes from your product...and that's what gets everyone's attention. Clean and natural...love it!

    1. Thanks! It's funny because the other day I went looking for some new stuff for the table...I couldn't find anything I wanted that was just right on any of the three days I went...I took that as a sign! And thanks to all of you I am going to just add a few display pops that will add interest! Thanks for all of your great ideas!!!
