I'm holding onto this one. I love Florals and was lucky enough to get a bar of this beauty. Thank you so much Kat! You are truly one of the finest Cold Processed soapers ever. Ever.
I love Kat's soaps so much that when I saw this listing I bought two pounds! Trust me on this one: these are not wonky slivers and old shards but big beautiful bars and heft slices. Head to toe, as always. Thank you again and always Kat. You are truly an artisan, a gift, and a blessing to all that you touch.
Finally took an interest in chemistry...
I started making soap after discovering the wonders of using it. Lots of reading, and trial and error were my chosen methods of learning the skill of saponification. I took to the cold process method and I still love it. I never tire of combining ingredients to produce an entirely different substance. I consider it my own personal alchemy.
My favorite things to make are custom batches. When I make wedding favors or custom bulk orders, I have a person in mind and I feel like my energy is more focused and I want, even more, for the soap to be the most beautiful thing I've ever created. It is fulfilling.
I recently moved to Colorado after 14 years in Atlanta. I have since taken up trail running and it is my favorite thing. I've been to a few places from Alaska to Kenya and even hiked the Inca Trail. My fascination in things is infinite.
As always, welcome, thank you for visiting, and I hope you’ll return.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
If an order is left without payment for more than 3 days with no response to my sent convo or paypal request, I will cancel the sale and/or leave the appropriate feedback. If you have changed your mind, that is okay with me, kindly let me know through a convo and I will cancel the sale, no problem.
~ I offer a 25 cent discount for those who prefer an unwrapped bar. Just let me know in the notes to seller and I will refund your payment.
~ I can fit up to 8 bars into a USPS flat rate envelope for $5. These are un-padded envelopes and I can not guarantee the delicacy with which the USPS will handle the envelope. Most times everything arrives as it was sent, but occasionally it may pass through the hands of someone with anger management issues and arrive looking like it made a 'yo mama' snap to every handler it encountered. If you're interested in flat rate shipping at this level, please send me a convo or leave a message in the notes to seller and I will adjust/refund shipping for you.
Insurance is NOT included with shipping price. If you would like to add insurance, I will adjust the shipping cost to reflect the cost. Please convo me to let me know if you'd like to add insurance or any other optional USPS services.
For large custom orders, insurance will automatically be included in your shipping price.
If the shipping address for paypal does not match that listed on etsy, I will contact you asking for the correct shipping address and will not ship until I get confirmation of the correct address. This may cause a delay in shipping, so please respond as quickly as possible to insure you get your package quickly. If I do not hear back within three days, I will ship to the confirmed paypal address.
For items not included in flat rate shipping, I believe in reduce, reuse, recycle. What this means for you is that while the box or envelope used to ship your goods may have been previously used to ship items, the product inside that package will be of the highest quality. I also reuse styrofoam peanuts used by my suppliers and hope that you will in turn find a use for them or attempt to recycle rather than toss them in the trash.
Refunds and Exchanges
I offer tracking, but once an item is marked delivered, I can no longer be responsible for a package being lost or stolen. If you'd like signature required delivery, please contact me and I will adjust your listing. If an item is tracked as delivered but you have not received it, it is your responsibility to contact the postal service.
Additional policies and FAQs
Payment: Sudstress policy for any custom project is 50% payment up front to cover supplies & customization before production begins. This payment is non-refundable. The balance plus shipping will be due once everything is packed and ready to ship, this way I can deliver an accurate shipping cost to you. The final balance plus shipping is due before the package ships. Of course the order may be cancelled at any time before shipment and the balance due will become zero. However, the initial payment is not refundable.
Label Design: I am not a graphic designer and am therefore somewhat limited by how far I can go with each design. The more specific the concept/detail, the further I need to employ outside time and resources beyond those I include in the price structure. I provide a reasonable level of customization without having to charge an extra fee.
I take pride in providing a unique creation for each wedding party. As the details of your wedding vision are communicated to me, I can get an idea of which direction to go with scent, color, and gift tag. I will provide you with options for each and let you decide what you’d like to present to your guests. The following are some recent examples.
Handmade: As with any handmade medium, there is an element of creative license involved and there are bound to be design/detail elements that were not specifically discussed and each piece will vary slightly. This will not affect the general concepts agreed upon such as main color theme and scent. Each project reveals itself to me as it is created. If you’re looking for handmade favors in the first place, this should not be an issue and you are in the right place. If it is of concern to you, please let me know and we can decide together whether Sudstress favors are the right fit for you. I will not be offended if you decide to choose another option, so do not hesitate to come to me with any questions or concerns. This is a gift to your loved ones on your special day and I put my heart into each project. I want you to love it as much as I do.
