New Soap Line!

I am thrilled to announce that I will soon be launching a new soap line in the ArtFire shop!

The new line is called Nothin' But... and features a variety of soaps that do not have any added colorants, synthetic detergents, dyes, or fragrances! Just pure and simple glycerin soap, with some added bonuses for your skin like Raw and Unfiltered Colorado Honey, Filtered Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Tea Tree Oil, and Gluten Free Oats!

I'm so excited to bring these soaps to market. As someone with sensitive skin, I know how frustrating it can be when fragrances and other additives cause rashes and other skin ailments. The Nothin' But... line is specifically for everyone who wants to avoid additives, but still get high quality, made with love, 100% handmade soap.

So, keep and eye on the blog and the shop, as the launch of Nothin' But... will be happening soon!

Small Business

Today I am proud to say that I donated part of the profits from my first sale(!) to Create Jobs for USA, which is contributing the funds raised to Opportunity Finance Network (OFN), which is a group of community lending institutions that finance small businesses.

As a small business that is trying to grow, supporting other small businesses is extremely important to me. Succeeding to a point where I can actually create a job for someone else is even more important, because than I know that I am pushing myself and my company in the right direction. Knowing that I am helping other people accomplish the same goals not only gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling, but also gives me a sense of accomplishment. :)

So, donate today, help small business grow and create jobs, and support small businesses by purchasing goods and services from them!

New Listing - Incan Mint Soaps

Incan Mint Soaps


This soap smells and looks so real I dare you not to try a bite! (Please don’t actually bite it. While the soap won’t hurt you, my fiancĂ© can attest that it doesn’t taste very good.) The perfect blend of chocolate and mint, just like a certain famous mint. As a bonus, this deliciously soapy version has zero calories!

Each bar weighs approximately 5 ounces, and is just smaller than a 2.5 x 2.5 inch square, with about 1.25 inches in height. Great for shower, bath, or sink!

Re-Listed - Honey Nut Oats Soaps

Honey Nut Oats Soaps

During the winter, I think theres nothing better for breakfast than a big, warm bowl of oatmeal. Think of this soap like breakfast for your skin. Its full of oats, shea butter, and raw honey- all mixed up and ready to delight your skin and senses. It does wonders for softening skin, and is very mild. I love it for hand soap as the winter gets dryer here in the Rockies.

Each bar weighs approximately 5 ounces, and is just smaller than a 2.5 x 2.5 inch square, with about 1.25 inches in height. Great for shower or bath, especially for those who suffer from dry skin, and excellent for hand washing for the same reasons.
