Melusine Soap will be at Kingsbury May Festival 2010! (My first ever craft stall!)

I'm super excited to announce that I'll have a stall at this years Kingsbury May Festival, on May 3rd at Kingsbury Episcopi, Somerset.

Here are links to the Kingsbury May Festival website and Facebook pages!

Not only will this even be my first ever craft fair/stall, but it will also be held in my home village, making it extra special!

The Kingsbury May Festival has live music, annual fancy dress pram racing, May pole dancing, a children's area, stalls, archery, sheaf tossing and a village fete, to name but a few of the attractions, AND it pulls in hundreds of visitors each year. Definitely not an event to be missed!

I'd better go and start making more soap!

Spring time!!! New Soap!!

The lovely weather we've been having here has inspired me to start making some summery, fresh and colourful soaps. Starting with my latest - Summer Kiwi Fruit!

This soap smells really fresh and sweetly uplifting. It also has poppy seeds to help exfoliate the skin and added apricot kernel oil provides extra moisturisation, making this soap perfect for spring/early summer time when we like to slap on the fake tan! Fake tan applies better to exfoliated skin and makes it lasts longer.

I'm planning on making a range of these soaps - I was thinking passion fruit, pineapple and melon, so look out for those!
