Friday May 6th I will be at the Central Eglinton Community Center in Toronto for the Spring Bazaar
160 Eglinton Ave. East (at Yonge Street and Eglinton).
Free Admission- with lots of great vendors selling arts & crafts, baby quilts, bookmarks, charms, gifts, greeting cards, jewelry, knitted items, keychains, tote bags, artwork, pottery and more!
Saturday May 7th I will be in Oshawa for a show benefiting the Durham Humane Society
Crafts, vendors, a yard sale, BBQ and a tarot card reader! It should be a fun day.
Storie Park Club House
10 Mill Street
Don't forget to buy Mom a mother's day gift and come on out!
I just finished whipping up some whipped shea butter - it doesn't matter what time of year it is, this is a product that always sells well. Why? Because it's fabulous for skin! Just a pure whipped shea with added coconut oil and some lime essential oil.
There is nothing bad in this product, and it's fabulous for skin and smells amazing to boot - and, yes, it does look like whipped cream!
And what about failed batches?
Well, I made a large batch of my Grapefruit and Mint lotion yesterday, as it's been selling really well, and what happened today when I went to bottle it?
Lotion on the top and water on the bottom.
It hadn't emulsified!
It was either a temperature issue or I neglected to mix it well enough.
The lesson: it doesn't matter how many times you do something, or how well you think you are at it- there are always mistakes and there can always be user error.
Live and learn!
And my apologies to those over the weekend who may want a Grapefruit and Mint Lotion - I'll be making more next week.
I hope to see you over the weekend at a show or two!
