January Gratitude

Hello all and happy new year! It is our hope you are all having a wonderful winter. We have been enjoying the chance to sip hot tea and cuddle up with our loved ones.

This year has started very well for us – we had a large order placed by one of our customers from last year! We’re so excited to usher in the new year on such a good note and so grateful to our customers and patrons for their support of our small business!

This is what 151 petite soaps look like!

This year we have sworn off resolutions and began a practice of keeping a rememberlutions jar in which we store small notes about the wonderful things that happen to us this year. This winter has been a beautiful time of reflection and refocusing and we are finding ourselves indulging in a renewed interest in healthful and natural eating, meditation and exercise. So far, 2015 has been absolutely beautiful!

The holidays were full of hustle and bustle and we’ve found ourselves lacking time to make new soaps. This is the week in which we will wriggle it back into our schedule. Our focus will be on small batches with great, pure ingredients and exciting blends of essential and fragrance oils.

A Few of Our Favorite Things

With the days growing gradually longer as we work our way through winter we wanted to pause a minute and thank everyone who has made this year amazing for us. We have given away almost all of our early adopter bags and gained immeasurably valuable experience this year all while enjoying the company and encouragement of the wonderful people we’ve met along the way.

We hope your holidays are beautiful and we can’t wait to see what the new year has in store for all of us! Our intentions are to manifest a magnificent 2014 and we hope you’ll do the same!

We would like to share with you a few of the small delights that we enjoy during our daily goings-on:
