I am finding great local items such as goats milk, hops and craft beers from a local brewery, lard from the local butcher and items from our vegetable and fruit gardens. We grow blueberries, strawberries, pears, apples and so much more and I would love to find or create some yummy new and adventurous items. I am loving the creative process! I just finished creating a goats milk and beer soap, The Drunken Goat, for a local brewery. They supply me with the local handcrafted beer and hops and I create artisan soaps for them to sell at the Brewery. How fun is that! I also have several friends who own wineries in the area and I think I will create a line of wine soaps for them from their own wines and see how that goes. What kind of fun things are you creating?
Ready or not, here we come 2015! This past year has been a great year for me and for my businesses. I own and create products for Rose Cottage Soaps ‘n Such. This year was my first full time year making my yummy bath and beauty products. It has been quite a fun learning experience! Along with Rose Cottage Soaps ‘n Such, I also own Image Grafx and Printing (for 25 years), in which I create graphic design creations for customers, keep them in front of their customers with print and websites and I also love photography. As you can imagine I am busy, but I have found my little space in the world and loving every second of it! This is my first try at a blog, so please be patient with me! I would love to connect with other crafty and creative folks just like me so we can share stories, successes, and aspirations! Thanks for stopping by and I do hope you will come back again!
