News + Updates


Even though the weather hasn’t changed down here in Miami, I’m SO excited for Fall. It’s absolutely my favorite season, not only to be in, but to make things for. I was quite quiet during August. We had a death the family; thank you to everyone that offered their support to us, it means a lot. I also set about to drastically change the way that I do my production and inventory… lots of spreadsheets, so many spreadsheets. 

Part of my new system is that everything is pre-made and ready to ship, so that I can commandeer help packing orders more quickly. Thus, this restock is mostly for Salt Bars and Scrubs. There are two cold-process bars and the General Catalog Wax is totally restocked. I have restocked the full-size and the travel-size shamps as well. Fall Wax and Cold-Process soap will be towards the end of September. 

I am super proud to be included in the Sihaya & Co Halloween Box, BLEAKTHORN HALL! Here is my contribution…

An Enchanted Athenaeum: The atmospheric scent of a dark, manor library with ancient paper pages, decrepit parchment scrolls, iron-locked grimoires bound in leather, weathered oak bookshelves, a lamplit gothic desk with dip pens, oak gall ink, and, strangely, a plate with a fresh yet half-eaten plum.

The box is available for pre-order at:

And, finally, I had a little write-up on the Canvas Rebel website. You can find out a little more about me and my little biz over here:

> My current TAT is about 14 business days. 

> The USPS has raised their rates by about 7% starting in January of 2023. I’m really getting killed on the postage, so I’m going to have to raise the shipping rates soon. Probably this Fall. Sorry. I really hate doing that because I, as well, really hate paying for shipping. I’ll keep you posted.

> I am offering FREE SHIPPING in the US if your order is over $50.00. You can use the code: FREESHIPPING  to apply it when you checkout on the website. This code never expires. Because you can’t use 2 codes at one time on my site platform, if you want to use another coupon code along with the free shipping, I’ll just have to refund you the shipping amount after checkout. I will issue the refund when I pack your order.
