Getting ready for the Allied Arts holiday show. I juried for both my Realms lotions and soaps, plus the art assemblages I’ve been doing all year. So my booth is going to be a little of both. Here’s what I’ve been up to lately:
Been having fun with some mini shadow boxes — in necklace form. They are double-sided.

The Allied Arts Holiday Festival opened yesterday and I’m happy to be in it for the second year.
Here’s how the table looks this year. Got a few new things: bar soap, roll-on perfumes and the room spray is in a new slender brushed aluminum tube.
Heading out to do a shift at the show, but look at what arrived overnight. Going to have to leave a little early, I think.

Poem and I took a cold process soapmaking class at Otion on Saturday. I like working with the Palm and Coconut bases and especially like the Shea butter. Picking out the fragrance oils and adding the mica and oxide coloring powders is the most creative part. The lye beads are a little scary. I am really sensitive to cleaning agents and when I began to scrape the lye/water mixture, I couldn’t stop coughing. If I decide to start making soap, I am going to have to do that part out on the deck where the toxic fumes won’t be a problem.
