scrumptious soaps...

 Good Friday everyone...can you believe we're almost into August? I am having a difficult time realizing that I just taught 4 weeks of ART Camp...and survived it ...lol...
Everyone keeps asking...will you do it again next year? YES...definitely...the progress of the kids from the start of the week to the end is remarkable!
I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching them new techniques and trying to train their eyes to see a little differently...whether they apply their skills to everyday life...or in their Art Classes at school...that's a different matter and entirely up to them...BUT...I have enjoyed it, and I know they have too.
So...the 4th week is on it's last day...and I will be back for 3 more weeks after a 2 week vacation from Camp. I'm certain our girls will enjoy the break...although they'll miss the company of others everyday.

Can you smell what's in the package? It arrived 2 days ago...and smells SO good...come and see...
 Mmmm, delicious handmade soaps by Tara Patey who owns the new line "On a Branch Soaps"...they are raw,scrumptious,packaged so beautifully and yes...that was the custom stamp I made for her back in MARCH...you can see the beginning of the process HERE...and HERE.
 The sizes of the soaps are wonderful and feel so natural....I love how the ingredients are printed on the back of each label!
 I can't wait to try the Lavender Oatmeal Soap...doesn't it sound perfect! I'm going to think about Christmas gifts and birthdays for the rest of the year too...
Thank YOU Tara...I have enjoyed seeing your journey into creating your amazing Soap Kitchen "On a Branch Soaps" and I am hoping you'll be able to see your delights at our Fall Mamas and Chicks Show!

PLEASE go and say hello to Tara! (HERE)

We're off to visit friends in Muskoka this weekend...
what are you up to?

HUGS and have a great weekend!

Your post (and purchase) brought back such great memory. Our daughter, Kelly, loved handmade soaps and whenever we'd go exploring in a "new" town, she had to purchase soaps to stock up her supply. Finding interesting combinations was always a thrilled. Enjoy your purchase and thanks for triggering a wonderful memory: ) XOXO

Here soap information is very interesting. Too much information can really confuse people. But On the other hand there are always be people who care about the others, and people who don`t. Everybody is making his or her own choice.But to know some important Hiv Information always read the best explanation .
