Cheers from the England!

I have spent the past week having a wonderful time with my in-laws in Northern England. Right now I am sitting at the table getting ready for my lunch, while most of my customers and friends are sound asleep cozy in bed. Getting used to the time change does take a couple of days! Mike and I and the kids surprised my mother in-law for her 60th birthday! It was so fun keeping such a big secret and seeing the looks on the faces of our family when they saw that we were here. We've had such a good time! Just wanted to say Hi from jolly 'ole England! I've got lots of new and exciting things on the horizon for Peace, Love & Soap- I can't wait to tell you all about it! Cheerio!

Focusing on Spring!

I'm getting really excited about preparing for spring! The downtown market will start back up in May and I can't wait to see all of my friends that I met last year. I'm anxious to start on some spring scents, as well. One of my new bars will be called Cocoa Beach which will be a combination of coconut blended with chocolate frangrances. I can't wait to try it out. I also have some great ideas for some new infusions that I've had in mind since the fall. I wonder if my massage lotion sticks will be a hit?!? We'll see...They've done very well online. I will be working on some lip balms this week. I'm almost completely out! 'Tis the season for chapped lips, I guess! It's so easy to get complacent in these slow winter months, I'm so happy for my internet orders! I'm thankful for everyday that I have the freedom to do what I love!
