Throwback Thursday: July 22, 2010

I enjoy creating many things, so I was partaking in many crafts, including making soap. And this is my very first cake soap. With layers of dark & white chocolate, this soap was topped with a strawberry frosting topped with shreds of the same "flavors." Doesn't it look good enough to eat?
Dark Chocolate & White Chocolate Cake with a Creamy Strawberry Frosting, Vegan Soap
This slice of bathing heaven was a whopping 8 - 9 ounces! "NOT EDIBLE, although, you will be tempted to take a bite - This is entirely made out of wonderful, vegan soap!"

I am no longer making soap; although, I do miss it terribly and, hopefully, one day will start again.
Is there something you used to create, but no longer? It be splendid if you share it in the comments.

Throwback Thursday: April 19, 2011

On April 19, 2011, I created my very first set of distressed clothespins.
(And it was only one day later that they sold, too.) I had no idea the journey they would take me on!
Distressed Rose & White Clothespins, Set Of 6
"Pink is always in - add a little shabbiness & you have a stylish way to display photos, hang banners, or keep yourself organized."

The distressing is a bit rough - My skills have much improved since then - but they were still lovely.
The clothespins originally arrived on a piece of embossed cardstock in an organza bag.

That has changed. Clothespins are now tucked into a cotton muslin bag, a perfect way to store them.
And there are many, many more colors to choose from along with different sizes.

Is there a creation that you have improved on over time?
Share it in the comments. I'd enjoying hearing about it!
