It's come full circle

Ever since I was a little girl, I have always been fascinated with potions, and soaps, and my mother's perfumes and lotions. I remember getting a soap making kit when I was 6 or 7, which was by far, one of my favorite gifts to get that year. I spend what seems like, hours in the tub, concocting colorful soaps and new shampoos to try out every night. Fast forward many years later, to my "a-ha," moment when I was searching for something I could create that represented who I was as a crafter, and what I believed in, and a potential vendor. It all made perfect sense to me, so I started studying and testing, much like what I did many years before. I needed to find something that I could make after I put my babies to bed at night. It all made perfect sense to me, Soap.
It has been 4 years since I had my "A-HA," moment, I still love what I do. I am so lucky to have the support of my family and friends, who rally around me and cheer-lead me on. I have been incredibly blessed with amazing customers, who have given me tremendous support and feedback over the years.

I hope you have a nice time in my shop and you really enjoy what you see. I have a love of art and creativity which hopefully comes through in the items that I have made. I have always loved to create whether I was making toys from tissue boxes when I was younger, or art pieces in school, and continue to let my creativity dictate my idea's for the art projects that I make. I love to show my things at Art sales, and have always enjoyed meeting new friends with the same sort of philosophies. If you don't see something at my shop, but like my ideas, I would love to create a piece specifically for you, using your ideas and vision. I can make several items for you and will work with you on the price. I am very flexible. I'm looking forward to working with you.

As soon as payment is received, I will ship your item in up to 3 business days, so you can enjoy your purchase as soon as possible. We ship USPS first class parcel for packages 13 ounces or less and USPS priority mail for packages greater than 13 ounces. I can ship other modes if we arrange it up front. Convo me to work out the details.
All shipping costs associated with products are estimated. If they seem high, it's mainly to make sure shipping is covered on smaller orders. If your actual shipping cost turns out to be less than the shipping price charged, I will gladly refund the difference if it's greater than $1.00. This goes for international shipping as well.
Refunds and Exchanges
All items are non-refundable, however, if you buy something that has been damaged en route to you, I will be more then happy to look into the problem and come up with a result that will make everyone happy. I really want you to be happy with your purchase, and will do my best to make sure that you are.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am excited to do custom orders for you and will work with you on all of the details. I can send you information on purchasing my products at wholesale prices to re-sell in your shops.

Because my hand poured soaps are made in small batches, the wrapping might be a little different then the picture displayed. Rest assured that even though I will do my very best to send you the exact item listed in the photograph, I might have to send you a soap with an equally as fabulous outer sleeve. If this is an issue, please let me know in the buyers notes and I will work with you.
