Our first time at the Jasper Farmer's Market!

We planned to make it the past two weeks, but one week Scott was sick and last week there was a huge thunderstorm with lightning when it was time to head out, so today was our first day as vendors!



We had pottery, honey, eggs, soap, elderberry syrup kits, salves, mangesium oil spray, sugar scrub, tea, freeze-dried candy, and little-girl-made peanutbutter-pinecone bird feeders!  Everyone there was very nice and the other vendors were super helpful.



We received a lot of good input and several suggestions for pottery items, so we're going to be working on some of those things this week.  We're looking forward to next week and hope to see you there!

How I got past the lye...

My interest in soapmaking began when I received a little book on making bath products as a gift.  My sister-in-law and I contemplated making bath oils, bath bombs, soap, and candles.  I bought a kit and made a few votive candles and we mixed up a batch of bath bombs (that bombed literally as they  […]

Welcome to our new blog!

After a couple of days of struggle, I think our website is finally coming together!  Please bear with us as we work out the kinks.  It's been a decade or so since I've designed a new website.  After trying multiple apps, I ended up deleting all of them and going back to what I know - MS Expression.  […]
