ARTWALK at Jantzen Beach

Starting February 6th, 2009 there will be an artwalk being held monthly at Jantzen Beach Mall in Portland, Oregon. I am proud to be a part of this artwalk will you find me there the first Friday of every month except during the months of June-September.

The artwalk will be indoors in the mall featuring artists and crafters of all sorts. From 4pm-9pm our tables will be set out.

Remember, come visit us at Jantzen Beach on the first Friday of every month from 4-9pm and see what some local handcrafted artists have to offer.

The artwalk is every month except during the summer months of June through September.

Hibernation until February

I don't know about the rest of the blogging world, but after Christmas, I'm just plain tired and need a rest...more like a short hibernation. I have no desire to do ANYTHING except sit and veg out.

But, I need to look forward into the next season, which is Spring and begin to prepare to make soaps for this time. Being a soapmaker who makes cold process soaps, Spring comes up wayyy too fast if I want to get some Spring time soaps ready. You see, cold process soaps have to go through a curing period of 4-6 weeks before they are ready...4 weeks being the bare minimum in my opinion. So, if today is February 15th, (which it is), then I am way too late in deciding what kind of Valentine Day cold process soaps I should's already too late! However, this is the perfect time to start doing Spring soaps.

Back to Valentine's Day though, I did manage to make some soaps for it that are cold process; Chocolate Ecstasy, Cinnamon Oatmeal and Sweet Lavender. All the rest of my soaps will be melt and pour types.

Oh and by the way, if you are seeing this post and want to check some of those soaps out, visit my shop at
