Starting the New Year Off Right

I will be launching new gift sets on and in my etsy shop this weekend! I have been wanting for some time to bundle my products into pre-made gift sets for folks who would rather not select their own items.

Check out what's in store! These are the tags that will go on the sets. Pricing is still being sorted.

I've finally put my soap balls to good use - by making a soap snowman (snowperson?)! He/she is standing on 2 fresh loaves of rosemary mint. I gave the rest of them away during a soap sale yesterday.
