Summer Giveaway!!!

 It's time to send all my little beauties off to new homes. So let me tell you what I have:

This one is Beach and I labeled it as hand soap since it riced on me and that can make the PH wonky. I've been using it all over me and I swear it cleared up my bug bites. I never did take the steroids since the pharmacy was closed when I left the Urgent Care. I took a bath with this instead and woke up the next morning much better. I've been using it every night since. Nothing like grandma's lye soap to cure an itch, I suppose.

 The other hand soap is Beach Daisy. This one needs to be a hand soap. That fragrance is STRONG and I only used a quarter of the recommended amount. If you want something to make your bathroom smell great, this is the one. That fragrance really sticks to you. Literally.

 This is Honeysuckle and Cucumber Melon. They are both nice and sweet and on the mild side. I used a lot of mango butter in these recipes.

 Sea Breeze and Stormy Sea are also very mild. The scents are slightly beachy which most people describe as smelling like suntan lotion. I like them. They were made with sea clay and yogurt. If I have a secret ingredient, it's yogurt.

 Lemongrass Verbena is very sweet. The fragrance oil has vanilla in it. Abalone and Sea Salt is another one made from sea clay. I'm not sure what it's supposed to smell like. The website says it's supposed to be day-lily and musk? It's pretty exotic but I like it. It's a lovely, creamy bar.

 Aloe and Green Clover has real aloe extract. It smells very fresh. It's a favorite for hand soap in the kitchen. White Tea and Honey has real honey in it and smells like a fruity cuppa. Strawberry Thyme Lemonade has a tart berry scent and some candy apple fragrance. It's nice.

Fairy Garden is a mixture of wisteria and lilac. It's on the strong side. The supplier describes it as a "tangy floral".  You have to be a floral lover to like this one. It's potent. Pinkberry Mimosa is all about the berries with a dash of citrus. I've made this one a lot and people love it.

Finally I've got one that I can't do without. Blackberry Sage. It's the perfect berry scent as far as I am concerned.

This is a soap only giveaway. It's too hot for anything else. I am hoping I can get this to you in decent shape in this heat. I would appreciate you letting me know the condition it arrives in and what your temperatures were when you got it. This is the first time I've sent out soap in the summer and I'm a bit nervous about it.

That goes for the cards too. I have visions of all my hard work melting away in their envelopes. I am wondering how well those pricey adhesives will hold. Sigh.

Let me know what your FOUR favorite bars are and I will see that you get TWO of them.

You know the routine. I need your mailing info and your bar choices sent to me via Ravelry or my soap email account:

And don't freak out..........

......if you don't hear back from me today. I'm off to Baltimore with Daughter to see this. I'll tell you all about it tomorrow. Cirque du Soleil on ice. I can't wait!!!!


  1. Hooray! Love your delightful-to-the-senses soaps! Have a wonderful time at Cirque...that is on my bucket list (but I’ve never heard of it being on ice!).

  2. A show on ice - what a great way to beat the heat!

  3. I've never heard of Cirque du Soleil on ice. That sounds amazing. Hope you have a good time.

  4. Maybe we can combine our efforts....
    I plan to take about 5 of the squares that my friend said to do whatever with, and put a bar of soap in the middle and donate to our local shelter . I think anyone would love a pretty soap and I hate to cover them up, but I think they'd love a washcloth too. Maybe I can just give the shelter the soaps with a washcloth ribboned together?

  5. Hope you had fun at the ice show! Thanks for the giveaway-looks like a fun array of soaps!
