Hand Painted Wood & Ceramic Gifts

Recently, I have not had time to make soap (but there will be new batches of cold process soap in a few months), but I have a collection of hand painted items that are now for sale.

Some wooden boxes, a wood tray, a few light wood coasters, many ceramic tile coasters, and a few ceramic signs. Everything has been painted with a medium known as “alcohol inks”. Many items also have designs cut out of vinyl and pasted on top of the painting, like stickers. Wood items have been sealed with an acrylic sealant. Ceramic items and all tiles (including the wood ones) have a layer of resin on top, to make them shiny, hard, smooth, and okay to set your drinks on. The resin says it is good for up to 110º C (230º F), so if you put something hotter on it, it may stick a little bit, or make a bit of an indent in the resin.  Most of the items can be personalized. Enjoy!

This set of 4 coasters is all resin, so it is light and flexible, made in an ocean wave pattern. Photo shows all sides.

Next are rectangular ceramic signs, about a foot long and 2 inches tall. Great for a house, room, or desk. Have sturdy permanent double stick tape on the back.

I can also add vinyl sayings and images to 100% cotton “flour sack kitchen towels” (it’s a thin white material, good for kitchen clean up or making into a hair covering or mask). Here are some examples.

These are all of the ceramic tiles I have available and ready for shipping. All have a cork backing and are 4″ x 4″.

These are light wooden tiles. Thin, and not as nice as the ceramic ones, but still fun, and can be placed in a card. All have a cork backing. These are supposedly 4″x4″, but are not cut perfectly, so are slightly smaller.

Finally, these are the large ceramic tiles I have available. They are 6″x6″ – perfect size for a trivet (for items up to 110ºC) or for house signs. If you want to use it as a trivet, I can back it with cork. If you want it as a sign, I can put the strong, permanent, double sided tape on the back.

Fizzy Fairy Fun!

New bath bombs, bubble bars, and both combined. All with ingredients to moisturize your skin while you enjoy your bath!

Fairy Fizzy Fun Packs

Silver heat-sealed packs filled with bath bomb remnants, mini heart, seashell and unicorn head bath bombs, and biodegradable glitter. At the top of each pack are 5 tiny fairy glycerin soaps, hand cut, for kids to play with and encourage cleanliness.

Scoop as little or as much as you want into your bath and watch it fizz. Agitate the water to get some bubbles. Enjoy soothing shea butter, coconut oil, aloe oil, and floral fragrance. SOLD OUT.

Aloe Earth Bath Bubble Bombs

These pastel green and blue bath bombs are designed to remind you of the Earth. Some have tiny fish shapes in the bottom, others have dried jasmine. Each one has aloe oil to add moisture to your bath, as well as bubble powder, so after watching it fizz, you can agitate the water and produce bubbles. Scented with “breathe” essential oil blend of eucalyptus, mint and sage. Great fun for kids. Produces less bubbles than a bubble bar, since it’s designed as a bath bomb first. Small ones 1.6″ diameter, $2. Large ones 2.1″ diameter, $3.

Lavender Blueberry Thyme Bath Bombs

This fragrant mix of lavender essential oil, blueberry and thyme, add a lovely aroma to your bath. Coconut oil adds moisture. None left in ball form, but the formula is used in the unicorn horn bath bombs below, and I can make more, if I get enough requests or an order for at least 5.

Unicorn Horn Bath Bombs

unicornrainbowboimbsUnicorn horn shaped bath bombs are colored like the rainbow, and made from the Aloe Earth (green and blue layers) and Lavender Blueberry Thyme (white, yellow, pink, purple layers) bath bomb mixes. Large and great fun in the bath! Get the best of both bath bombs. Only $5 each.

Honeysuckle Bubble Bars

These fragrant honeysuckle bubble bars each produce a whole bath tub of bubbles. Just crumble it under the running faucet as you fill your bath and agitate the water to get the most bubbles. They also contain shea butter and cocoa butter, to leave your skin soft. The top of each one is sprinkled with Dead Sea salt and a dusting of gold mica. Just $5 each (note similar bubble bars at Lush are $12 and up each).

Face Masks & Body Scrubs

Activated Charcoal & Tea Tree Oil Face Mask

20180521_124734

The main active ingredient in this silky feeling face mask is activated charcoal, from hardwood, which absorbs icky things from your skin. Tea tree essential oil gives this face mask it’s refreshing smell, as well as having many benefits to your skin. Kaolin clay & sea clay absorb excess oil, clear pores, and soften skin. Aloe vera gel soothes skin, as well as containing minerals and anti oxidants. Finally, foaming bath whip provides cleansing soap for your skin and a fluffy base for the other ingredients. 

To use this face mask, gently massage it onto your face, but not in your eyes or mouth (duh, but it needs to be said). Allow a light coating of the face mask to remain on the skin for 5-10 minutes. When the mask is dry, gently remove with water and use a towel to pat the skin dry.

Warning: Keep out of eyes. Do not ingest. Care should be taken to avoid contact with light colored towels, clothing and washcloths as charcoal may stain some fabrics.

Coffee & Raw Sugar Scrub

This sugar scrub features fresh ground coffee, vanilla fragrance oil, and raw demerara brown sugar, in a foaming bath whip base, to provide good exfoliation for all over your body, along with soap cleansing, and the most delicious smells. Extra virgin olive oil (from my family’s own farm), grapeseed oil, and vitamin E, add moisturizing and antioxidant properties. Finally, Cap 5, a vegan, paraben free, non formaldehyde donating, preservative protects this scrub against bacteria, mold, and yeast, so you can keep it in your shower.

Jasmine Salt Body Scrub

This salt scrub features both Dead Sea Salt and Epsom Salt, for muscle soothing, large piece exfoliation. Foaming bath whip gives it a soft base and soap cleansing properties. Aloe Vera Oil soothes and moisturizes skin. Jasmine fragrance oil smells like your in a sweet field of the flowers. Cap 2 preservative prevents bacteria from growing if it gets water in it, while being vegan, paraben free, and non formaldehyde donating.

Directions for Body Scrubs

Use just like an exfoliating soap:

20180521_154412

All of the scrubs come in 8 ounce (by volume) jars, sealed, and are labeled with the net weight of product contained inside (3.8 ounces for the facemask, since it is very light and fluffy, 10 ounces for the sugar scrub, and 12 ounces for the salt scrub). $18 each, handmade with love (as well as gloves, facemask, etc). [Note similar products in stores sell for $30 – $65].

Photos, Succulents and other Great Gifts

Custom Images

Dadpicpapersoaps

The magic of science has brought us special paper that can print your photograph, picture, design, or message, to personalize any soap! These do involve a 2 step curing process, and the clear soap layer on top of the picture can not be scented (but the layer behind the photo can be). The pictures look great in the soap, then dissolve with water if the soap is used and you eventually get to that layer. Due to the double curing process, these soaps take at least 1 week to make.

Succulent Soaps

These adorable soaps have around 5 shimmery green succulents on top of a brown shimmery round soap. Each succulent is hand made separately, then pieced together with the main soap. 3 currently available in a refreshing Rain Cybilia scent, will take at least 3 days to make them for custom orders.

Teacher Gifts

These cards with lip balm can be bought with or without the sparkly apple soaps, in various designs. They can also be adjusted to make messages for moms, dads, or whomever you want to say, “You’re the Balm!” to, along with a beeswax lip balm. 2 apple tote bags are also available.

Massage Soaps

Regular soaps in any color and fragrance, with massage bumps, for soothing muscles in the shower.
