  5. And as if we are surprised?! I have often wondered just how you create what you do. While we as your customers receive the end result, to determine what should and should not go into what you make, I know it is a lot of work to research. Perhaps it is like, as an illustrator, how you learn what mediums (oil paints, airbrush, charcoal, pencils) will work best on particular surfaces (canvas, watercolor paper, vellum paper, drywall for murals). It takes time and patience, trial and error in some instances, and just plain stick-to-itiveness! In your case, you have to measure the ingredients differently for soaps versus whip creams versus body scrubs. I still marvel at how you have grown over the years; from selling out of a shoebox at UNCC, to personal delivery to mail order. Even when you offered loaf soaps and candles (and having to stop the candle-making because it was so time consuming), you and Tovijah have written a story that in some ways I feel I could write, although you two are still the authors. Wow, until now, I had not realized just how much of an impact you two have had on me. It is truly a blessing to reflect on just how much you have left your mark that goes beyond Smell Goods '98. Only the two of you truly know the rigors of what you do, but I am proud of you, if I may so to you. Shalom.

  6. My favourite item is the Mystic Blue at

    Loe the tan linen flower mascara bag from Myla's Bags

  8. I really liked the Kleo print in a Jenna bag on Myla's website as for Uzuri Designs I loved the Earthy A Line necklace perfect for me.

    Great prices also.Good day:)

  9. What?! Nothing for the men?! Ah, well, I still love the experience of learning what makes a woman say, "Girl....." Uzuri's site has wonderful earthtones, and while I make more use of pastel colors presently, Jade Eardrops and Wooden Dangles caught my attention. Myla's site has the plaid bags I think I could offer as a gift, and watch them get put to great use. Midnight Kisses in black and red has a common combination of color, but not in the particular elegance I see with this belt, which would be a definite highlight. It seems most men's fashions are based on aspects of women wear, so I am glad I have learned if these sites.
