 I've wanted this candle making kit from Bramble Berry since last Christmas. I was happily surprised when my daughter gifted it to me this year. I enjoy making candles and this kit takes all the work out finding the right wick to go with the wax and size of container. They came out beautiful!

The best part is the fragrance and eco glitter. The fragrance is heavenly and the glitter adds that bit of sparkle that every candle needs. Now I need to stock up on everything in this kit to keep making these. I'm sure that's the point of the kits, right?! They want you to love it so you keep buying more. 😂 Nice work Bramble Berry, nice work!

 Oh my gosh! This is the first year that Christmas has snuck up on me. I'm usually done shopping for prezzies by the last week of November and at this time I'm watching Christmas movies by the fire and nibbling on the cookies I baked, but I'm sooooo behind. I thought I had at least a week and half beforeChristmas but realized over this past weekend how wrong I was. I finally finished making my Christmas cards so hopefully they make it to everyone on time. I'm relieved I got the cards done because it's the one of the things I really enjoy doing making this time of year and I think people really love receiving them.

I'll start my shopping tomorrow.  


I did manage to decorate for Christmas the first week of November though so I'm not a total failure this year. 😀

 Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by the winter market and bought soap or purchased my soaps through Facebook this holiday season. Your support allows me to continue doing what I love and I really appreciate it. 

Now it's time to get some Christmas shopping done. This is the first year I've not finished by December 1st. I don't know why but I keep feeling like there is so much time left but in reality it's just 9 days away!!! Time to get moving.

Tomorrow December 10th my daughter and I will be back at the Winter Walk in Northfield. This will be our last day before the end of the year. 

I'm still debating on whether I should open an Etsy account or a new website. I'll decide by Sunday so check back if you want to purchase any soaps for Christmas.

I am so excited to finally have my own spinning wheel. My friend Susan gifted me this Ashford Traditional spinning wheel a couple days ago. It just needs a few minor repairs and then I can begin spinning. I've been spinning wool for several years on a top whorl drop spindle but it has always been my goal to learn the wheel. Wheels are quite speedy and they look kind of complicated so I've never purchased one. Now I have my own and can't wait to make the repairs and get spinning. 

Today I'll be ordering the pieces I need to get it up and running and I'll make sure to share my progress.

Today was another great day at the winter market in Northfield, MN. Several people asked if I sold soap online. Sadly, I had to tell them that as of mid October I no longer had a website, but great news is I've decided to open an Etsy shop. I'll be selling on Etsy after December 10th so if anyone wants to pick up some soap for Christmas I'll be there. I'll share the link to my new shop on here December 11th.

Maya and I had another beautiful day at the market. We met some really nice people and got to spend some time getting to know a couple from Georgia, the owner of Cannon Belles Coffee & Ice Cream, and the owners of Cannon River Fiber Farm. We also found out there is space for us in the 24th annual Winter Walk Event so we'll be back in Northfield to sell soap again on December 8th during the festivities.
We'll be bringing several new fragrances with us so make sure to drop by and take a sniff!
