Pre-Order Customized Perfume Poppets
I'm setting up a pre-order for the perfumed poppets as I don't want to make a bunch of them and have them wither away on Etsy or the new website. I'd much rather make them more customized, you tell me you want one, I make one for you. Simple as that. If you...

My friend Bella sent me a wee package the other day with a cotton dish towel that has a happy affirmation written on it (I can't tell you what it is right now because it's in the wash!) in response, I believe, to my glorious homemade greetings' memes I was ...

Blogging in Brazil
I will attempt to blog the Brasil trip, who I meet and what we do. I'm hanging out with a bunch of aromatherapists and natural perfumers. Things could get interesting.

This is the studio today. All that bit in the middle there, the basket, the bottles, the general disarray, that came out of my bedroom. That's what I was living with since moving here. There are a few things that need to be done today before I can tackle th...
