Saving the planet, one bar of soap and discarded textile at a time.

Because superheroes come in all forms, most of them imperfect.

I don't know if I can claim the superhero title yet. But I have the imperfect part down pretty perfectly.

I sew (almost everything) using recycled textiles. I make soap (I DREAM about soap). I am a perfectionist, an idealist, and a woman.

In a nutshell: I am a mother, a wife, a teacher, a seamstress and a soaper. Over the course of a year, I came to realize (through some very tough lessons) that my job, rather than being an obstacle to my creativity, was actually a catalyst for it. Now being several months removed from a series of unfortunate events, I am a better and more fulfilled...everything. I have a razor-sharp focus and am more committed than ever to building an earth-friendly, sustainable part-time business, creating things I love using materials I believe in without the stress and burden of past decisions weighing on me.

Welcome to my carefully-constructed, hard-won corner of the world. I'm glad you're here.

Frequently asked questions
Do you have any current coupon codes, discounts or sales?

Current sales, discounts and coupon codes are always listed at the beginning of my shop announcement. They change frequently and are often seasonal, so please check back often!

What do you mean when you say your soaps are natural?

The base ingredients of my soaps are all-natural: oils you can find on almost any grocery store shelf. Colorants are all natural elements that can be found in nature. By customer demand, I have recently began using fragrance oils in some of my products in order to produce more sought-after scents that cannot be derived from essential oils, and these are listed clearly in my ingredient label on each bar. There are no hidden ingredients. If you have any questions, I'd be more than happy to answer them!
