The Dirt...

This site & soaps are a collaboration between a mother & son on something they both enjoy... being creative.

Any of you who've been here before know I like to keep busy... so between university, sports and life time to blog is hard to find but when I can I do.
ps I really enjoy reading your comments.

Mom's - Bracelets

Mom has spent the last few months creating these bracelets with glass beads from Austin Hamilton. Should I add them to my Etsy page?

While your Mom's bracelets are oh-so-pretty and she's encouraged you to do your own thang, I think they might be out-of-place in your soap shop. That's the great thing about Etsy....anyone can do it!

They are very nice. I'd love to see a picture of one of them on a wrist to see how it hangs...pretty beads.

Joanna said...

lazytcrochet has a good point. Make this about you. Let her open a shop if she wants to do jewelry. You can always point to eachother

Sara said...

Very nice. This is an interesting blog you have here. I love your shop/blog name. I'll be back :).

Thanks. She hadn't asked me to add them I just was thinking about it but I thought the same thing ...WAY too girlie...LOL

Joanna said...

You are a honey for thinking of your mother and it shows. :)

Absolutely. Women will be you biggest shoppers and we always enjoy pretty fragile things. So YES.

The bracelets look gorgeous! I see you're a good son. You can always feature her craft in one of your posts, or you can also tell her to have her own site. I'm sure a lot of us, women, will check her stuff too.

own shop....think she would
really enjoy it. Then she
could chat with us old cronnies. lol

Testimonials on my soap

I saw SoapWithBalls in a forum post a few weeks ago and was so intrigued with the fabulous shop name and even more intrigued that the avatar for a soap shop was of a young man, I just had to click! After reading the shop announcement written by his mom I really wanted to give this shop it's first sale. My family (my hard working carpenter husband, a sweaty skate boarding teenage son, and a stinky little league catcher) love handmade soap and purchase all of our soap on Etsy. When I saw the manly soap in super large sizes, I thought, this is perfect.

After my purchase, he promptly sent me a thank you convo and shipping information. The communication and customer service I received was wonderful and refreshing. After receiving my Cut Lumber 10oz. bar of soap, I proudly presented it to my dear husband and he immediately took it with him into the shower. I'll tell ya, I've never seen a cleaner man in my life! I wish you the best of luck with your shop, and I will be back when our Cut Lumber starts thinning out :)


Cut Lumber-this is a huge bar of hunky soap perfect for that dirty hunky manly man in your life. This soap is definitely ballsy and not for sissies! No foo foo girly smelling soap here!

Blackstrap Licorice-Licorice was my favorite candy when I was a kid and the smell of this soap makes me want to take a bite out of it! 

Now I'm eyeing that lilac soap, it looks lovely!

His soaps, I mean. He sent me some incredibly luscious soaps and I am SO happy with my purchase! He is the best cabana boy ever- make sure you have all of his products for your own cabana!
