2009 Coupeville Arts & Crafts Festival

Friends and supporters…

Realms products will be making their final appearance of the summer season coming up next weekend at the Coupeville Arts & Crafts festival. This is one of Washington state’s oldest juried  arts and crafts fairs, and I am honored to be appearing for my fisrt time. Realms shaving soap will be making its debut too 🙂

I hope to see you there.

Realms Shaving Soap

Realms Shaving Soap

This humble craftsperson is proud to announce the launch of Realms Shaving Soap. It’s old fashioned shaving soap in a mug. The package comes with wood-handled bristle brushes from Germany. I think the printing on the ceramic mugs came out beautifully.  I scented the soap with my Jaffna scent, which is a light sandalwood. And, I overcame the problem I was having with adding clay to the recipe (a necessary ingredient which makes the razor glide smoother). It was clumping, but I came up with a two step process of mixing that alleviates the clumps. I’m very happy with the result.

A charm-ing addition

Castle charm

Castle charm

This sweet little pewter castle charm is going to be a new addition to Realms packaging — around the necks of full size lotions, shower gels, room sprays.
