Shieh Design Studios - Part II

I have a feeling there will be many more parts to this story! =)

If you remember around this time last year, some soaps from the very talented Emily of Shieh Design Studio ended up at my house: http://oilandbutter.blogspot.ca/2012/12/shieh-design-studio.html

I thought it was about time to treat myself to some more of her fantastic goodies, so I headed over to her Etsy store to stock up...it was so hard to choose only 3!

They landed in my mailbox yesterday, and I took the opportunity today to practice using my light box. First, can we talk about how gorgeous her soap boxes are?!





Those boxes? She MADE them! She actually did a great blog post on the designing and making of them, which you can see here: http://soapandrestless.blogspot.ca/2013/07/journey-to-my-new-soap-box.html

They are truly a work of art themselves, I tell you. Emily...you must have the patience of a saint!

Which soaps did I buy? These ones:




They all smell absolutely divine and the detail is just amazing! I especially love the fragrance of the 'Dare Me' soap, it reminds of a fragrance from my teenage years that I just can't quite put my finger on!

My family thinks I'm slightly crazy for buying handmade soap when I already make my own, but I know I don't need to explain my love and appreciation of other people's handmade soaps with you! ;)
