This week my products were included in 2 lovely new fall treasuries, so I thought I would share them here with you, my faithful blog readers.

This one titled ‘Southernmost Autumn’ is a warm weather fall treasury.  It certainly doesn’t fee like fall yet at my house, so this one is right up my alley.  This treasury includes my key lime lip balm.

‘Fall is in the Air‘ includes all Etsy Fort Worth members and lots of lovely fall colors that I wish I was experiencing.  2 falls ago Joey and I took a trip to New England to see what fall is really supposed to be like.  It was beautiful, hot cider drinking, sweater wearing weather that I wish we had here in Texas.  This treasury includes my soap chunks grab bag.

I am a blog posting delinquent.  It has been 3 weeks since my last blog post.  I was doing pretty good there for a while and posting more regularly, and then, I just don’t know what happened.  I guess I haven’t had anything interesting to say.  Or maybe it’s because I always forget to take pictures of the interesting things I am doing and I feel like a blog post without a picture is not worthy.  Either way, I’m back from hiatus and have some fun new posts planned.  I’m putting that out there to hold myself accountable.  I feel better now.

Now, on to the body scrubs.  I’ve been making these salt and sugar scrubs for a few months now, but have just now posted them on Etsy.  These scrubs are, of course, all natural with no preservatives or artificial anything and are scented with essential oils.  They are really popular at craft shows and markets, and I have several customers who are already hooked on them.  They tell me they don’t need moisturizer after they use them in the shower – they’re that good.  I’m just sayin’.   Check them out on Etsy (shameless plug).

I’ve been testing out some different lip balm recipes for a while now, and they are officially ready for the masses.  I’m pretty picky about lip balm – can’t be too hard and has to have staying power – so I’ve gone through several rounds to get it where I like it.  These have mango butter (which I wish smelled like mango, but is still wonderful) and it makes this so silky and creamy. I have to say, the final product is super soft and smells so yummy. 

Right now I have orange and mint, and am going to do some new scents soon.  Maybe a coffee and a key lime?  I am a little obsessed with citrus right now, especially sweet orange essential oil – it smells just like a fresh orange and is my favorite in lip balm.  Check it out on Etsy.

So today I got a good taste of the power of the web, and it’s most popular handmade marketplace, Etsy.  This week I opened an Etsy store, and this morning I was briefly featured on the homepage.  I received a huge warm welcome from fellow shop owners and received several wholesale inquiries – a first for me!  It was quite exciting for my ‘lil ‘ol soap shop.

I was also featured on 2 blogs today – CraftGossip and Lilac and Grey.

Just had to toot my own horn a little…turns out all this time I’ve been spending cruising the web may be actually beneficial.  Now, time for a glass of wine.
