A Heart Handmade Blog Holiday Featurette
Everything in my shop is skin nourishing- & knowing that I’ve held nothing back, skimping nowhere. I take pride in delivering exceptional products.
I have been married to my best friend for over 14 years.
I love animals- I have a pug named Zoe.
I admire my mother: her strength, wisdom, & kindheartedness.
I am up to my neck in soapy bubbles- and I soooo love it!
What got you started crafting?
All of my life, my mom always encouraged us to cultivate our craftiness, to use our imaginations.
What is your source of inspiration?
Braggin' Rights Bath is my dream come true. I have put everything into it, and have watched it grow and grow. It is my "garden", always sprouting up new growth and new blooms; I think it only is limited to my imagination. I tend to it regularly, amazed at it's harvest.
What have you made recently?
I made lump of coal soaps (for naughty bathers worldwide) this year, they turned out adorable! They are packaged in a muslin bag, I screen printed them with a vintage Santa...
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
I sell my products wholesale to several retail locations. I also operate an Etsy shop, and sell online from my own site. On occasion, I will do a craft show.
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
Because it is people- their dreams, desires, thoughts, ideas.... It isn't a corporate identity. It wasn't mass produced by machines, someone actually MADE it.
It is belief in PEOPLE and their incredible talents, rather than dependence on machines. I choose handmade because it ROCKS! It matters.
