Anyways, my mother was always creating something and she was always kind enough to let us help out and create our own crafts. Last month when I started thinking about opening a shop on Artfire, I immediately thought of my mom and her talent of creating crafts. She had been crocheting scarves and arm warmers for my daughter the last couple of years. I asked her if she'd like to start selling them online with me and she was so excited. Right now in our shop she is selling scarves, a wrist cuff and a belt. She's currently making some dishclothes for me and some longer scarves. Please stop by our shop and click on the link on the right called Scarves and other crochet items to see what she has in our shop.

Sunday, January 25, 2009
Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway. We had 171 entries! Wow. Using Random.org a winner was choose. Congratulations to Wanda. Here was her entry:
Mmmmm, the Chocolate Cherry Soap with Shea Butter would be enough to make me not mind being on a diet! Thank you for the giveaway!
This winter, here in Vermont, has been a bitter cold one. Normally all this cold weather would dry out my skin. Luckily for me, I have been using some handmade soap from the sellers at Etsy and Artfire. Handmade soap normally doesn't have all those harsh chemicals that mass producers of soap has. You may pay a little more for a bar, but it will last longer and keep your skin feeling fresh and hydrated.
Rebecca from SoapDeli, has offered to provide my first giveaway on this blog. You can enter to win an assortment from her shop. All of her soaps are rich in moisturizing oils and butters for happier, healthier skin. You're sure to love the thick, creamy lather of her soaps so much, that you'll be back for more before you know it! They are great for shaving, too!
Chocolate Mint Soap
My Chocolate Mint Shea Butter Soap is a tasty combination of dark chocolate, light chocolate, vanilla fragrances, and pure peppermint essential oil. The result is a delicious blend of chocolate and peppermint candy. This soap rinses cleanly away and is all natural except for the fragrance. Vegan. Each bar weighs 4oz. - 4.5oz.
GRAPEFRUIT TWIST SALT BAR FOR EXTRA DRY SKIN WITH SHEA AND COCOA BUTTERS
My Grapefruit Twist Salt Bar is the perfect soap for dry or troubled skin. Great as a facial bar or all over, this bar contains both shea and cocoa butters as well as an abundance of skin loving oils such as Olive and Rice Bran, both known for their moisturizing properties. It also contains sea salt, known for it's healing properties. It leaves behind a bit of excess oil to smooth and rehydrate your skin. Leaves you feeling moisturized, not oily or greasy. Also makes a great shampoo bar.My Grapefruit Twist Salt Bar is a blend of pink grapefruit, lemongrass and a touch of mint. It's lovely pink color comes from a natural red oxide and titanium dioxide blend. Sea salt makes this bar especially hard so it lasts even longer than a traditional cold process bar of soap. Bar weighs 4oz. - 4.5oz. Vegan.
This kitchen soap contains coffee which is great for ridding your hands of nasty kitchen odors like onion and garlic. It also adds a little scrub to the bar to help remove not only odors, but food and dirt as well. It's scented with a blend of lemon, sage, and ginger derived from Lemon, Orange, Ginger, and Geranium essential oils. Shea butter helps soften hands and lend an extra creaminess to the lather of the bar. Use it in or out of the kitchen! Bar weighs 4.0 - 4.5oz. and is 100% natural and also vegan.
