New Year....New Ideas!!!!!

We have been working hard in the Soapy Lab the past few weeks to get all of our soap restocked from our busy Holiday Season.

As we restock bestsellers like; Mountain Man, Stormy Ocean Seas, Sparkling Sea Glass, and Lavender Goat's Milk. We also have some big ideas for a few new fragrances and styles to work on.

We played with some wonderful new RUBY RED Glitter (a freebie from one of our suppliers).  We used a basic white soap with a simple cocoa line (chalk line) for the design with a beautifully bright Gardenia fragrance.


We ordered in 12 new Soap and Bath & Body fragrances to play with this year.  Some of my favorites right out of the bottle are:


  • Oatmeal Milk & Honey:  I have been meaning to order this one for ages....now I wish I hadn't waited so long.  It's absolutely incredible.
  • Bamboo & Lotus:  This one will replace our cucumber & aloe.  It's fresh and clean; with just a hint of brightness that makes it oh so good.
  • Cashmere & Silk:  This fragrance is a bit tricky to explain; it's soft, sensual, with just a touch of musk. 
  • DeLish: I am in LOVE with this fragrance.  I am not going to give it away...but I promise it will be worth the wait!


We also have some new colorants to play with as well as a few new design techniques we would like to try this year.  I am dying to try a peacock swirl, but that one will have to wait until I can get my new mold that I want.  (an 18 bar flat mold with dividers).  For now I do have a few ideas up my sleeve for my standard loaf mods.


More Stripes are in our plans this year as well as playing more with squirt bottles, spoon swirls, and cocoa powder chalk lines.  I would also love to try out a Mica Glycerin swirl this year as well.

We also have a few other new things we can't wait to play with.  We will be experimenting with liquid and cream soaps as well as bringing our newly updated lotion back as well as a few Facial items we can't wait to share with you.

And that is just the beginning...we have many wonderful new Candle Fragrances that are currently in testing as well as a brand new Line of candles coming this year!

Long time no blog.....

It's been a while since I have taken a moment to blog.  I sincerely apologize for the delay.   I am in the soapy lab later this week so I look forward to sharing some of my new Ideas with you all.

In the meantime.....



We spent August through November exceptionally busy with our son's first Youth Football year.  It was a crazy busy summer filled with daily practice, weekend games in the pouring rain, and amazing memories that will last forever.

Football was a wonderful experience for not only my son, but for the whole family.  My husband helped coach and found something he is passionate about, my son learned the value of hard work and commitment to your team, my shy daughter got out of her comfort zone and finally met some new people; and as for me....well I learned that even though the house is messy, the chores are not done, and dinner is something super easy (like Subway),....life is about the memories you make doing things you love.  

And I Fell in LOVE with Football.



And after a busy football season...which our team went all the way to playoffs...then I was back in the lab gearing up for our busiest season.  We sold out of our seasonal soap Peppermint bliss as well as our Peppermint bliss gift sets. 

We celebrated one Full Year at the Grow Washington Store in Sultan.  (If you are ever headed East over Steven's Pass I highly recommend stopping in for a moment to the Grow Washington store)




It was a Great year for Green Lady Creations, and we want to say thanks to each and every one of you for your continued support.  We have a few changes coming in 2014 and lots of new things we will be working on in the next month.







Here is a sneak peak of some of the new things we will be working on.....



We have been working on Herbal Salves....with a few new salves on the way.
