One of the things I enjoy most about having stalls at Craft Markets, is that I get to spend time with other amazing & creative Artists. And it was at one of these Markets that I first met Janine of Stone Rose Soaps. What attracted me to Janine's stall was the amazing colours of her products, so I wanted to share them with you too!
Please tell us a little about Yourself
I am the owner of my soap business and I also get to be at home to raise my children. I am married with 3 children of my own and 3 step children. My children are 10, 8 & 3 and they are the light of my life; they also help me with some of my projects. My eldest daughter loves to pitch in with me and is already a mastermind of a few products of my line!
What / Who Inspires you in your Creative Process
My love affair with bathroom products began when I was much bigger - part of my short goals were to have treats that weren't food related. I started finding food-like bathroom products and was absolutely delighted with them. Soon after that I realized that I really needed to be making my own indulgences to my own style. I love taking everyday items like oils and butters; and turning it into a scientific masterpiece! Soaps and bath products don't have to be super expensive, and it's amazing how you can brighten someone's day with just a simple unique gift just for them.
What is your Favourite thing to Make / Sell
My favourite has to be the bath truffles/bath bomb cupcakes. Behind each and every one made is a reminder that I am helping people to remember to love themselves, it's a little slice of heaven and indlugence just for yourself. We don't take enough time for ourselves these days :)
What's your Favourite item Currently available in your Shop
Either my Cleopatra line or my Pink Sugar line - they are my absolute fave scents!
|Pink Sugar Handmade Coconut Milk Soap|
What are you Hobbies outside of Crafting
I love to volunteer at my Church, I sing with the worship band and I love to spend time with my kids and my awesome family. We all love to have time at the beach together, so we are really looking forward to summer.
If you could Travel anywhere in the World, where would you go and Why
I would love to take all my children on the Disney Cruise Liner, to see their faces all lit up would just rock my world and make me so happy!
