About

Once upon a time......

Growing up in Virginia, I always loved making things. Over the years, I have dabbled in counted cross-stitch, needlepoint, tatting, crewel, embroidery, quilting, candlewicking, weaving, polymer clay beads and buttons, jewelry making, beading, Russian needle punch, watercolor painting, etc.

My parents were and still are my biggest fans. They have encouraged me in all my endeavors and never once tried to squelch my desire to try something new. I credit them for my talents - my father is an awesome basket weaver and my mother loves to paint and hook rugs.

When I found traditional rug hooking I was hooked! Then, I rekindled my passion for knitting and spinning. About 10-12 years ago, I added soapmaking to the list.

I opened The Robin's Nest in 1984 in Virginia to sell my fiber and other craft items at shows and finally from my own studio. In the early 2000's, I began making soap and came up with the name Bird Bath Essentials to include my soap and body products.

I moved to Ohio in 2009 and, once again, got the soap pot going. To me, soapmaking is pure magic! A chemical reaction between lye and oils, the end product is soap. Wonderfully fragrant, nourishing, rich lathering soap - a useful and basic product. I view each bar as a little work of art and each wash is a treat!

Knitting is my meditation. I use wool, cotton, silk, acrylic blends, etc. to create handknits that are tomorrow's heirlooms. With every throw of the yarn or pick of the stitch, I knit a little bit of my thoughts and feelings into each project.

I LOVE making things! The creative process excites me - from the planning / design stage to the end product. It's the "doing" that thrills me.

I appreciate your interest in The Robin's Nest / Bird Bath Essentials and hope you enjoy viewing my listings as much as I enjoy making them.

The Robin's Nest / Bird Bath Essentials welcomes you and appreciates your interest!

Browsing the shop, you will find quality handcrafted soaps and body products. The soaps contain no chemicals and no preservatives. I do lightly preserve the cream lotions. You will find an ingredient list for each item posted. I choose all my ingredients (oils, additives, etc.) because of their individual properties. Each one offers its unique properties to the finished product. Please check the ingredient list carefully to assure against any personal allergens.

I will also list handknits and/or other fiber related items from time to time. All of the items you find here are made with higher quality materials.

Again, thank you for visiting The Robin's Nest where my creations share a bit of me with you and, also, Bird Bath Essentials where every bar of soap is a work of art and every wash is a treat!
