Craft Show Best Sellers

I did three craft shows this week, and these five soaps stood out as the best-sellers. Not what I was expecting!


Nearly everyone who stopped to browse my soap table liked this one. It was the clear favorite of the week!

This soap was inspired by my mom's beautiful red and yellow tulips that would sprout every spring after a long Chicago winter. Scented with the crisp, delicate fragrance of tulips, a light floral scent that's not overpowering.


Many commented that this was the prettiest one :)

Celebrate the glorious arrival of summer with our new Sangria soap! It's effervescent scent of apple, tangerine, lemon, lime and Merlot is inspired by the delicious Spanish cocktail we all know well. This olive oil soap really lathers beautifully.


"What's a lychee???"

It is difficult to describe the scent of the South Asian lychee fruit, but once you try it you will never forget it's delicately sweet, slightly perfumed fragrance. It's my favorite fruit scent ever! This soap bar exfoliates with natural cranberry seeds and moisturizes your skin with olive oil and shea butter.


Hyacinth with Aloe's scent and color combo are perfect for spring.

This soap smells just like a fresh April hyacinth. It makes me so happy to see the blue, pink, and white hyacinths pop up every spring around my neighborhood -- and they smell soooooo beautiful! I made this soap with moisturizing shea butter and soothing aloe vera.


The Margs kept selling out by the end of the day!

I love how this one turned out! This olive oil soap is scented with a blend of natural lime and citrus essential oils and dusted with exfoliating sea salt. You'll feel like you're in Akumal sipping margaritas by the sea.

Arboretum Craft Show - Reprise!

Here's my setup at the Morton Arboretum Craft Show.

We had a rainy day for our craft show last week, so the Morton Arboretum has been kind enough to schedule a second craft show this Sunday at the Visitors' Center.

Sunday, April 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Daffodil Glade is in bloom!
(...that sounds like a good name for a soap...)
