There are certain moments that make me feel SO proud and accomplished. I admit, with all the hard work I put in to each piece it is with utter most pride that I share this little note with you from a client that just received her custom design in the mail.

"My mother at first was a little hesitant in the idea of not actually being able to see it before purchasing, but after explaining to her how you made exactly what i wanted through e-mails she seemed ok with it. But now that she's seen it, she's telling me to consider making it a heirloom piece to pass on from generation to generation =)"

It still makes me hold my breath for a moment every time I get a note like this from my clients. I get SO involved in work and making each and every piece within the time frame promised and I have to stop and say, "thank you" to all the wonderful people that cherish my pieces enough to deem them heirlooms for generations to come!
It gives me goosebumps!

Much blessings to you all!
...and CONGRATULATIONS Vicky!!!!!

Bathlife Holiday Editions

I am revisiting some favorites for the Holidays!
I wanted to share some very high quality and very affordable new addiitions from

"At BathLife™ we make true soap using the centuries old cold process technique. Then we punch it up with modern fragrance infusions and rich, creamy butters & oils.

Every bar not only cleans your body, but drenches your skin with moisture-rich shea butter, sweet almond oil, and naturally occurring glycerin."

One of my Favorite new Holiday addition soap bars is this one:
Reindeer Fur (tm)

Fragrance: Reindeer Fur™
Description: Santa's reindeer do *not* smell like cattle. They smell just like fresh cinnamon cookies, figgy pudding, jingle bells, and candy canes. It's true!
As if the name isn't cheeky enough!

How in THE SEASON does looking at this bar make you feel?!!!
I just want to eat a Candy Cane!
Think Snow (tm)

Fragrance: Think Snow™
Description: Red, ripe cranberries layered on top of fresh peppermint. A new holiday favorite.

If the Holiday fragrances is not what you might be looking for there are SO MANY more great choices in her shop!
I had to giggle when I came across this bar and quite frankly I think I might really enjoy this!
Locals Only (tm) Handmade Bath Soap with Shea Butter and Sweet Almond Oil. Double Size Bar.

Fragrance: Locals Only™
Description: Hangin' with your crew talking stories about your killer cutback and the kook howlie that dropped in on your epic wave. Dude brah, it's a raging blend of mandarin, mango, guava, and a hint of clove.
I love the humor she uses in her descriptions!
Great products and a touch of Fun!

If something small and sweet for a stocking stuffer is of interest then you MUST check out her Lip Balms!
How YUMMY does this sound?!
Red Licorice Creamy Shea Butter Lip Balm. Always Handmade From Scratch. Never A Pre-Made Base.

All my Gal Pals Loved these last year!
Plus, I always have one in my purse...lovely!
So many fabulous products to share but I think you will enjoy perusing her shop even better!!!!
I highly recommend picking up some BathLife™ For the Holidays!
Most importantly, I know she personally makes everything and takes great time and effort to make high quality products at an affordable price.
Mrs. Bath is SUCH a friendly and wonderful lady!
You won't be disappointed.

Cutie Baby Girl holding a little dog in Midori green and Amethyst color

Welcome to YuYu Art!
I was browsing around a while back and found these TOTALLY ADORABLE Dolls!
There was something different about these and the more I saw the more I just had to Blog about Yuyu's shop!
Sure, sure, I get sucked up into the "cuteness" of these but what really drew me to them was the unique designs, color palettes and most of all, craftsmanship.
Her keen sense of color most likely comes from her Fine Arts background.(hee hee, that's where I like to think I got it from too)
...and you all know how I LOVE color!

Here is a quote from her profile that I believe sums it up:
"Color, image, and hope— much hope. When I was a child, I wanted to avoid a life of hard physical toil. I always wished that I could play freely, so I have created dolls playing with flowers and bugs. I also have created dolls holding pleasure toys, like teddy bears and little bunnies—the toys I always wanted to have when I was a poor child. Making these dolls truly fulfills my childhood dreams.
Through my dolls, I want people to re-experience the joy they had in childhood. I also want my dolls to remind people to be young at heart—to see the world anew. Be bright. Be shiny."

I think you can really see the love that she puts into each and every piece. They are SO well made and I personally am in LOVE with the dolls holding the little toys!
I think these will make SUCH Wonderful gifts for the holidays!
I TOTALLY recommend everyone checking out her shop because there are SO MANY MORE cute items to see!!!!
