Black Friday Sales

I am going sample crazy at my Etsy Shop!!!

The more you buy, the more you get! Every order starts with a free lip balm and free 1 oz guest/travel sized soap. Who knows, I might get crazy and start throwing in full sized items!

On sale Holiday Lip Balm Set, ideal for stuffing those stockings!

Need something for mom? How about a fab scrub, soap, and bath bomb set?

And Dad will love the feel of our Essence of Bamboo soap!

Now sure what to get for your sister? How about three different shea butter soaps, your choice!

Whew, a busy past week

What a busy week I have had. Not only have I been working at my day job, I have been working on stock for the Christmas season. Peppermint, Coal, Three Wise Men, are some of my recent soaps.

To make things even better, I decided last minute to put product in our new local craft mall. And when going to sign up, we learned that they were having a Christmas open house. So, we signed up Thursday, stocked the booth Friday, and the open house was today.

Tomorrow, will will bring a bit more stock and check out what the first day brought us in sales.

On another note, in the mold I have another 6 color swirl. Patchouli scented, I am going for a darker rainbow, sort of a mens version of my Kaleido-Soap, though I know Patch is a scent for all. Cutting that tomorrow will be exciting.

I also worked on bath bombs and lip balms. I will figure out how to post pictures tomorrow.

A new day, A new blog

Each day I wake up thinking about the day ahead. What challenges will I face, will there be setbacks to overcome, will I have a good day, full of joy and laughter, and the all important sense of accomplishment that many of us crave.

Today I decided to share my days in the form of a blog. Though working full time in Real Estate, I long to run my own business full time. I long for the days where I can be in my workshop full time, creating products that people will enjoy.

That is what KBShimmer is all about. Creating bath and body products full of life, color, and scents that will make people feel that life can provide pleasure around every turn, be it a beautiful bar of soap, or the laughter from a small child sniffing lip balm.

Come along with me, explore the world of cold process soap making as I push myself to the limit, testing my skills in order to make products people enjoy, not only as soap and bath products, but as art.

Along the way, I hope to show you not only my creations, but the wonderful works of arts that others create. One post at a time, maybe I can bring a smile to someone's face, show someone that you can afford a bit of luxury, and maybe I can help someone else push their own limits along the way.
