Boston Handmade Downtown

Well I've been without a computer for a few weeks so sorry for the delay in posting this. Just got my computer back from HP a couple of days ago and been catching up with everything ever since. I've had quite a bit going on in the last couple of weeks including my latest news about Boston Handmade Downtown. This is a storefront in Downtown Boston located at 505 Washington St. near Downtown Crossing T station and a short walk from the Commons. It is a gathering of 30 local Boston Artists filling a storefront for the holiday season, all items are handmade by the artists. You can find all kinds of wonderfully unique items there. Here is a link to the main site for more informationBoston Handmade Downtown. If you are looking for all of the artists involved here is a link to the artists and their Etsy stores Boston Handmade Downtown Exhibitors. Hope if you are in the area you drop by to see all of this wonderful work in person.

Yummy, frosty, peppermint!

With winter just around the corner I seem to only be able to think of frosty things. I've developed a new soap that feels like that first cold day of the season. My new Peppermint Rosemary vegan handmade soap is quite a sensation. Take a look at it on my etsy store at DeShawn Marie Peppermint Rosemary Handmade Soap besides being refreshingly sudsy it is quite pretty too :) Thanks for dropping by, let me know what you think of my new developments as time goes.

Putting all new items on Etsy

Hi, I've spent all day developing some new soap from ingredients I collected in Europe last Summer. It was a fun soap day :) I'm posting lots of new stuff on Etsy as I develop them as it seems to be the best place to test the market for something new. With what feedback I get from them I will add them to my website DeShawn Marie Handmade Soap over time. I'm very happy with one of my new creations the Cedarwood, Lavender, Clove Soap is fantastic...I think it will become one of my new favorites! Here is a link to it on Etsy Cedarwood, Lavender, Clove Soap.
I'm also happy to say that I will be able to devote more time to my blogs and work more on keeping things up to date. I would love to hear any feedback or comments. Thanks for dropping by.
