Maya and I sold our soaps at the winter market in Northfield on November 19 and now we are headed back for round 2 this Saturday. I’ll have 10 different batches for sale so if you’re in Minnesota and close to the area, come by and see us at 115 5th Street West. 

We’ll also be returning on December 10th and I’ll be introducing five new batches of soap on that day. Two of them are pictured below. Strawberries in champagne and orange peel. Both smell incredible! 




 My daughter and I sold at the Northfield, MN Winter Market today and it was lots of fun. I didn't expect to see so many people considering it was 17 degrees outside, but they came out to shop and it was great to see everyone. 

Maya and I arrived extra early since we weren't sure how long the drive would take us so we were both quite tired by 2 pm. Here's Maya right after we set up our table. She's not quite awake yet...and she was the one who had the coffee. 😂 

Today my daughter and I took a class on identifying edible vs toxic mushrooms in the wild. Since I was little I always wanted to know which mushrooms I could and couldn't eat but no matter how many times friends with mushroom knowledge would point out an edible mushroom I just didn't trust it. 

A few years ago we decided to remove the majority of our grass in the front yard to make room for pollinator gardens. We removed about 1/2 of the lawn and planted numerous Minnesota natives to feed butterflies and bees. In our backyard we added several native trees to help feed the birds. Immediately we started seeing the benefits of both. The birds come to the trees to nibble on the fruits and the pollinators visit the flowers for pollen and nectar, but this year we were surprised to find this...

The following soaps are currently on the website for sale. At the end of May I'll be uploading the Spring collection.

All of these soaps are made with skin loving butters and oils: almond oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, babassu oil, shea butter, and mango butter. 

My daughter and I have been attending the Shepherd's Harvest Festival for years and this year I decided it would be fun to apply to sell my soap there. All artists are juried so I was ecstatic when I got in. It's always nice knowing event organizers love the look of my soaps as much as I do. 

It's hard to believe that we started our homeschool journey in 2013 and it's now 2021. I wasn't very good about keeping up with posts on here about what did and didn't work for us with home education but I think I'll post more about that soon. As for right now my daughter is in her last year of homeschool because she has decided public school is where she wants to be starting this fall. I'm very excited for her to begin anew where she can meet lots of new people and participate in activities she hasn't had available to her due to the pandemic restrictions. So this will be my last homeschool photo of her.
