Craft Fair

21 02 2013

I was at the craft fair under the pavilion on University Drive yesterday and sold some more soap before I needed to leave slightly early to make it to choir practice.

The next few weeks, I will not be able to go, but I gave Coffeedog some samples. Also, if you e-mail me and let me know what you want, I’ll try and get it to her so you can pick it up there.

You can also get it shipped if you like though.





Small craft fair / farmers market

13 02 2013

imageCoffeedog told me about a small craft fair / farmer’s market that just formed. It will be on Wednesdays at 5:00. I’ll have to leave a little early, when I can go, to make it to choir practice but it’s just a block from the church so it should be OK.

There were just half a dozen vendors but I sold $16 worth of soap and I got some farm fresh eggs. Farm fresh eggs, num num num num, num.

20 JAN 2013: This is a double batch and will be ready next month, but there’s plenty of the last batch ready right now.

12 FEB 2013: These are ready now. I have as much lavender as you could want.





Grapefruit soap 13 Jan 2013

18 JAN 2013: Grapefruit has a wonderful scent. It and bergamot are my favorites of citrus. There are 16 of the 3″ circles and three of the flowers in this batch.

12 FEB 2013: These are ready now and smell lovely. I think I’ll take a shower with one tonight.





Thyme 6 Feb 2013

This is unfortunately a failure. The thyme essential oil did not come with recommendations so I put in what I thought was a reasonable amount. I thought wrong. The scent is so strong it will smack you around. Unless someone pipes in and says they want to grind it up for potpourri, it’s going in the trash.





Con or Bust

ConOrBust
While reading John Scalzi’s blog, I came across Con or Bust. It’s a charity that supports people of color going to science fiction and fantasy conventions. They have a yearly fundraiser where they auction off donated items.

I’m donating dragon soaps.

In the picture are in order: Lemongrass, Banana Leaf and Acai, Sandalwood, Apple, and Unscented. There will also be a Honeysuckle scented bar (yellow) and a Blackberry scented bar (blue).

If you want to bid on this soap or other items (there’s a bunch of signed books, crafts and other stuff as well.), go to http://con-or-bust.org/2013/02/seven-clean-dragons/

Bidding opens on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time and closes Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time.
