2015 pretty and perky year end highlights

Hi everyone!!!  We made it!  This year flew by so quickly that I can’t believe it’s already New Years Eve.  There were so many fun and amazing things that happened this year, and it’s time to take a look back at some of the highlights.  So here are our Top Ten 2015 Year End Highlights!

10. We opened a retail shop.  Earlier this March we opened our very own shop at Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles.  We’ve been there for almost 10 months now, and it’s been fantastic.   We love being surrounded by other artisans that love their craft.  We work, share business ideas, laugh, and laugh some more.  We understand the struggles of working late nights, ordering last minute supplies because we miscalculated something, and the warm feeling we experience when we all do well.  Come visit us if you haven’t already!!

Is this heavy cream or shea butter soap?

Am I stirring heavy cream or is this actually shea butter soap?  It’s SOAP!  We made a few big batches of shea butter soap and wanted to make film it so everyone can see how creamy and milky it is when it’s melted.  Our shea butter soaps have been very popular at shows and we can’t wait to start listing them onto our Etsy Shop.

BTW are you following us on Instagram?  We post lots of behind the scenes photos that aren’t on this blog.  So make sure you follow us if you’re interested in taking a peak into what we’re currently working on :)
