    Botanical Cards and Gift Tags

    Botanical Cards and Gift Tags

    We are excited to introduce our new line of cards and gift tags designed by Diane Hocking of Paper and Style Co. Diane creates beautiful drawings from nature and has whipped up 6 leaf drawings to reflect our simple, natural body care products and jewellery. 
    I came across Diane’s work through social media and immediately fell in love with her drawings. Her style fits perfectly with our branding. 
    Shown above are pictures of Diane’s art process. We have printed the artwork onto quality, heavy card stock and sealed them in our signature kraft packaging.
    Our exclusive cards are available in singles and sets of 6. Matching gift tags are available in sets of 12. 

    My 6 Must-Haves When Travelling

    My 6 Must-Haves When Travelling

    Summer is my favourite time of the year. Besides the beautiful weather we get to enjoy day after day, it is also the time to go on long vacations. I’m not much of a traveller, but seeing how much my husband and the girls look forward to it, I give in and share the excitement.
    With two daughters, packing a first aid kit is a must. Before I started making bath and body products, I would have up to 7 medical products in my kit. Now, I only bring three all natural ones to take care of our needs:
    Ginger and Frankincense Skin Butter-used as a rub for headaches, tummy cramps, indigestion and sore muscles. When any of us feel like a cold coming on, we just massage the butter onto our back, neck, and shoulders twice a day.
    Neem and Tree Skin Butter- used for skin irritations. This is mostly used by Beth for her skin when she hits the pool (chlorinated water) or when she stays out in the sun for too long. Scrapes and cuts do occur during outings and this butter comes in handy for those reasons. This is also a miracle worker for sunburn. It has replaced our aloe vera gel as it works twice as well.
    Pine and Eucalyptus Skin Butter- although it is summer, we still get allergies. To help with easier breathing, especially at bedtime, just rub a bit of the butter into the nostrils. All the essentials oils used in this butter are also helpful with insect bites. Applying it right on the bite can get rid of it almost instantly.
    Besides these three all-stars, I also bring lip butter, hand butter and our mini travel soaps for face and body.
    So I’m pretty much covered when it comes to packing body care products. I love that each product serves more than one purpose, which helps me travel even lighter. I hope you will also find these essentials just as helpful as I do.
    Have a great summer!

    Make It Show Vancouver

    Make It Show Vancouver

    What a great weekend we had at the Make It Show. For those who are not familiar with this event, it is a market that happens twice a year with close to 200 handmade artisans at the PNE Forum. There is such a vast variety of talented vendors that I always end up buying something at every show!
    It was great seeing fellow vendors from previous shows, as well as meeting new ones. But the highlight for me was when our regular Make It customers stopped by to say hi and even made time to chit chat.
    Handmade markets like Make It provide an intimate environment for vendors and customers to mingle and I find that there's never any pressure to buy. Which means you don't have to feel bad when you say "I'll look around some more" or "No thanks, I'll pass".
    A slight disappointment that happened during set up was our sign. The hook on the back had broken off and we ended up standing it on the floor. In replacement, we used our smaller sign which was tiny compared to the size of our booth!
    This was our third show at Make It and we are looking forward to our next one in December.

    Welcome to Our Blog

    Welcome to Our Blog

    Thank you for visiting our blog page. This is my very first blog post ever! I’m not much of a writer, so please bear with me if you come across any typos, grammatical errors, anything that makes you think “I wonder how this woman got through all her English classes in school?”.

    This year marks the 10th year since I started making jewellery. Along the way, my bath and body products were made because of a need to help Beth’s eczema. And the paper packaging products were born from my own interest to create 2D designs. My goal was to combine everything into one lifestyle shop someday and looks like that goal is finally happening. Currently, the first two categories are on the site. Paper products will be next and I’m hoping to have everything finished by this summer.

    Please feel free to email me if you have any suggestions to improve my shop, feedback on my products, or just to drop a line to say “hi”. I would love to connect!
