After months of experimenting with creating the best handmade soaps, I finally got enough courage to open my own Etsy shop today. YAY (and it’s 90210 today, which makes remembering the anniversary a little easier)! It is called Lavender and Olive to pay respect to two of my favorite ingredients, both to lather up and to eat! I especially love the fact that there is the word “LOVE” in the name. I will be selling handmade soaps here, and I’m hoping to expand to sell some handmade accessories and bags in the future.
To celebrate the grand opening, I would like to share some of these soaps with you! Please leave me a comment on this blog post from now until Sunday, September 19, 2010, and the winner will receive four of my favorite soaps made by yours truly. Feel free to enter if you are a regular reader of this blog (all five of you!), or even if you just happened to stumble onto it for the first time today! Don’t be shy! And please only enter once.
The winner will be selected by random drawing and I will announce the lucky recipient on Monday, September 20, 2010! Thank you and happy lathering!
I’m so glad you started an Etsy shop! Long overdue with all of your talents! Best wishes!!
I totally agree!
I love it! You are amazing!
Congratulations! They’re SO amazing I can’t use any other store bought brands anymore! They’re gentle for your skin, but strong enough to take all the chlorine off my body after swimming, and all the sweat after running in the sun. Great for your skin & environment too. Keep makin’ them and make a world a better (and cleaner) place!
Your biggest fan,
