I have recently been given a small (1 1/2inch) box. It's a bit small really but I decided to make some small fizzing bath melts to see how they would look in the box. One melt fits in the box just nicely.
I have been playing with some new packaging because I wasn't overly happy with my old packaging (for my soap that is). The soaps look OK in their cello bags when there's only one or 2 of them but when there is a lot the soap gets lost in a sea of cellophane so I have decided to wrap them in beautiful handmade paper. OK, so you can't see the soap but you can smell it. I think they look better.

Today I have had a little fiddle. I have seen these hearts made with a variety of things such as rosebuds, rosehips, nutmegs, chillies etc. so thought I'd have a go at making one myself. Easy enough to do if not a little fiddly. I think my wire was a tad too thin but it seems to have held its shape fairly well. I scented it with some white roses fragance oil courtesy of Ruthie.

The day before yesterday I had a knock on the door and it was the postman holding in his hands a nice little box addressed to me. I hadn't ordered anything so what could it be?
I opened it and inside was another box with Lomond Soap printed on the top tied with a nice raffia bow. OK, off comes the bow, up goes the lid and inside there was a selection of goodies - all for moi. I've been a good girl see.
There was a lovely navy blue organza bag with 2 face creams and a pot of hand cream, a ball of soap covered in rose petals and a special little packet wrapped in brown tissue paper and tied with raffia.
I opened this little packet and inside is the most gorgeous little stone. It has a cross running all the way through it. Corrie says it's a Scottish flag stone but it's really a kissing stone. It has a big kiss running all the way through it. A very special and rare stone indeed. It now sits with my collection of gemstones that I have in a bowl.
Thank you very much Corrie.
