Just joined a local street team!

I attend a great meeting today with some great local artists also involved with Etsy! It was great to meet everyone, and I am amazed at how talented everyone was. I am a true fan of local work, and many towns around me are artist towns, and it was amazing to see people's work up close and to meet them as well.

Here are a few of the great people (well, at least there shops) that I met today:

Finally...Some new soaps!

Christmas went very well for me. I sold out of most of the soaps in my shop!! And since the holiday I have been trying to get back on my feet! And this week most of the soaps that I made at finally ready to go!! I finally feel like I am accomplishing something. Here are a few that I just listed!

Made with real Chai Tea, Whole Milk, and local Organic Honey, this bar is a delight! There is no added scent aside from the tea base, so it is light and smooth with a hint of vanilla.

Orange Cypress with Shea Butter

This soap has a high consentration of Shea Butter and the sweet smell of Oranges, and a small hint of Cypress to even it out. It has a creamy lather and a fresh scent. It is the perfect spring soap!

Herbal Shampoo Bar

This bar has a dense creamy lather that is sure to get your hair clean, while also being gentle on your scalp. I have also added scalp loving essential oils to give it that little extra something!

I will be listing more shortly, but at least this is a start!!

My New Favorite Blog!!

My sister and I are 7 years apart...she is younger ;~) but we were always involved in the same things. We were both swimmers, liked the same music, same TV shows (I taught her well) But the one thing that I always had was alcohol ...she is 7 years younger! That is a lot of drinking!!

But then one day it happened...a group of girls running at me screeching "How's Meg?!?!?!?! We miss her?!?!?! What is she doing?!?!?! blahblahblah" my safe haven had been infiltrated!! But at least I drink better than them, right? No Bud Lt for this girl...and I have quite a taste and a bit of knowledge about wine. So I am a sophisticated drinker, not just a gaggle of girls...

Well, now I have even lost that!! One of them has become a beer and wine expert!! She knows more than all of my friends put together! And she is sharing her knowledge with you via her blog The Beer Wench. Not only is she chock full of valuable beer information, she is cute as heck!

**Update** Today (02.07.09) is The Beer Wench's First Birthday!!! Show her some love on this joyous of days!!
