Love Enough

Let’s say you didn’t have to work, ever. No more cleaning your home, shopping, vacuuming, laundry, taking the trash out, appointments for car repair, getting ready for work, going to work, working, driving home, making dinner, let’s just say… All of it was over. What would your day look like? I know what I would […]

Why Buy Authentically Handmade?

Why Buy Handmade? As I stood at my workbench this morning making little toadstools I pondered why I buy handmade products… I like being seen as a person, not being tossed into the sea of humanity and counted as a number, as insignificant. I like it when people recognize me, as me. Not because I […]

Feedback for Artists

Feedback for Artists One of the most valuable things you, as a patron, can give an artist isn’t just your money, but your thoughts how you experience the artist’s work.

How I Started Making Soap Embeds I started making soap embeds because I explored what my interests and discovered, a bit more, how different I see and interact with the world.

I am Not a Corporation

I am not a corporation, a production line or a one person factory. I may never make any one of my soaps again. I make what interests me. I make what inspires me.  Like a great meal, the experience of my soap might be equally as temporary in duration. Unlike a great meal soap won’t increase your waistline, […]
