Weekly BEST: Sandyvern

This week I'm featuring Sandy's Handmade Soaps & Things (sandyvern on Etsy), a unique shop from Stamford, CT.  Sandy describes herself as a "self-taught crafter" and has developed skills in soap making, knitting, and jewelry making.  While I'm only featuring her soaps here, be sure to check out the link section at the bottom of the post to find some of her knitting and jewelry (the monsters are too cute to miss!).

Sandy has been making soaps for three years through both the cold and "melt and pour" processes.  Her ingredients include oils, butters, lye, goat milk, oatmeal, and honey.  Interestingly, a batch of soap can take up to six weeks to perfect.  Be sure to check out her Etsy profile here for more information about her creative process.

Here are a few of the scrumptious soaps for sale at Sandy's Handmade Soaps & Things:

Toasted Coconut Bar

Soap Popsicles

Brown Sugar Scrub Soap

Blueberry Crunch Soap

Sandy has a variety of other offerings that I did not have room to share with you here, so be sure to check out both Sandy's Handmade Soaps & More and her other shops.  Find Sandyvern at these places around the web:

Don't forget to come back here and let us know in the comments which item(s) you like best!

Until next time,

I'm a part of an Etsy team called Boosting Etsy Shops Team or BEST. The purpose of the group is to provide promotion for each team member through our existing social networking accounts. Each week I'll be doing a blog feature about a different team member.
