Divinely Inspired


I love colors and flowers!
I began with my idea of a radically new soap.
I thought if swirls and chunks can be designed into sliced glycerin soap, why not a purposeful, symmetrical and beautiful picture design completely made of the same soap within one molded bar of soap? The idea was to create something I could share with others that could bring them ... JOY

My first attempt was dramatic, but after the colors ran together then completely turned white, I gave up. It wasn't until I tried to reinvent it again years later when God truly led me to the right products and colors to try again...

You have to understand why I say "God". I never saw soap like I imagined in my mind. I didn't have one clue what I was doing. I just pictured it in my head what I wanted to create and then prayed for a way to make it succeed. I didn't even know where to look for what I needed, ~ but, I was given all the answers and resources one afternoon sitting at my desk. I am self taught with nearly no resources except the talent of creativity I learned from my parents, genetically as well as intellectually.
However, God did know the desires of my heart and my personal life story which evolved the name "PureHeart" from Psalms 51:10 (NIV) and PureHeart Ministries...

So, with a new gait, I ordered everything I needed and wah-lah ~Success! And not just success but a unique and dramatic way to create soap. I feel very blessed to have been given the talent to create a high quality product with my hands.
I wanted my designs to last and not go away the first washing or two, so nearly every soap I make will have it's integrity until nearly the end, and in many cases the design in the center is the last thing to go.
So, let's say you like the Moose Woodland soap. The Moose is centered to last for decor during the weeks you use the soap.
I want a soap that pleases and brings joy to every possible sense, including visual, every time you use it.

I started with PureHeart 2008, then joined on Etsy in 2009.
There were some embedded soaps but non as detailed as I made. My parents were hard workers with their handmade business. I learned how to work hard this way with detail...

I then began downsizing the soap into mini designs to match my large soaps for bath sets and started selling them well at Craft fairs. I saw there was a need for smaller soaps that could be customized and offered "SoapFavor" on Etsy in 2011 as a venue for those looking for something personal and customized for their special event as well as affordable to give to every guest.
I have so much fun working with my customers. I LOVE my customers and when I can make them happy, I am completely satisfied with my work...

I am excited to experience the customers with custom requests on SoapFavor and continuing my new creations and original designs on both Etsy shops. I am always adding new ideas :)

Thank you for reading! (a bit more about the soap below...) ~Shari

True Story....
A wonderful customer of mine, Miss Carrie Kelly, who soon became my dearest friend had me over to her apartment perhaps a year after she began using my soap.
When I went to use her restroom, I was swept off my feet by what she did with every soap she ever used!
Can you believe she saved every small sliver of soap (and I mean very small slivers) and lined them all down the top of her back splash of her bath counter to display the artwork still left inside the soap.
She did not do this for me, it was her way of keeping the art after the soap was used.
She ended up moving, and I never got a picture of those silly soap slivers!

Thank you for your curiosity!

I wish there was such a thing as virtual selling, because you never quite get the full knowledge of what you are ordering on-line until you've paid for it and receive it.

I want to assure you of the quality and price, ounce for ounce, you will be happy with your order when you receive it. Better yet, you will be HAPPIEST when you finally decide to unwrap and USE my soap. It is made to look at while you use it...and you will know what I mean when you do! It feels incredible and smooth. It becomes very glass like and the designs are layered for best visual delight. Because handpainting, cutting and arranging is done separately for each bar of soap, no two are exact, but the photographs depict quite a very accurate example of what you may expect upon receipt.

Thanks for looking!

SUMMER ORDERS- I carefully wrap my soaps in insulated foam. Summer heat can soften or melt your soap if left in a hot mailbox all day, so make arrangements to have your soap brought in from the heat once delivered. I include tracking info on all my packages!

You save more overall on shipping per bar of soap when you purchase more than one bar!
