I've decided to continue with the Etsy theme this week, by publicly thanking two of our regular donors: Brooks Earth Farm and Little Studio Jewels...what would we do without you??
Brooks Earth Farm
Jenni makes the most wonderful handcrafted soaps using all natural ingredients like vegetable oils, fragrance oils and essential oils. She does not use rendered animal fats, detergents or artificial preservatives. Her handmade soaps also contain natural glycerin which is very good for your skin. All of the soaps are handcrafted and cut and labeled by hand. Brooks Earth Soaps come wrapped in rafia or ribbon and are ready to give as a gift or to keep and enjoy for yourself.
Since I have personally purchased and use her soaps, I can vouch for them honestly and feel comfortable enough to express my professional opinion: they rock! :o) A portion of the proceeds from every bar sold is donated to Epic Farms...thank you Jenni!
Pictured above are some of Jenni's lovely soaps from left to right: Arabian Jasmine is a moisturizing body bar with lots of luxurious lather; Woofy Wash is a fun all natural soap for your favorite pooch, it's available in a fresh clean fragrance or in oatmeal and honey for extra moisturizing; and Bulgarian Lavender and Chamomile is made with combined essential oils to create a soothing shower experience.
Please visit Brooks Earth Farm and check out her lovely soaps ~ they make great gifts too!
Little Studio Jewels
Meghann's shop is home to some of the loveliest pieces of handmade jewelry I've seen, and she is as gracious as she is talented. I bought a pair of the earrings pictured below, and they are absolutely gorgeous. I also have a beautiful silver ring from her too, but I'm still lusting after the bracelet :o)
Her jewelry is exceptionally well crafted, and most of her rings are easily and cleverly adjustable although they don't look it. Meghann has named Epic Farms as her charity of the month for September and also has several pieces throughout her shop with a portion of the proceeds designated for the farm. Thank you Meghann!
Pictured left to right: Fleur Ring is a thick non-tarnish silver plated wire with a Fleur-de-lis design on either end and a lightly hammered the shank for a strong, yet adjustable ring; Copper Celtic Swirl Earrings are made using hand-coiled and hammered natural copper wire and suspended in two swirly links to create a fluid and sophisticated pair of earrings; Mathair Pearl and Ceramic Bracelet was created with hand painted ceramic beads, white Swarovski pearls, and silver spacers. It is finished with a hand-crafted clasp and small pearl dangle (mathair is Irish for mother; Meghann created this bracelet with her mom in mind).
Please visit Little Studio Jewels to see the rest of her magnificent pieces ~ she has something for every budget (even one as microscopic as mine :o)
Thank you ladies for all that you do for us, we are so richly blessed to know you both!
