Savor the moment

My computer is more or less back in working order, though it does have a tendency to flake out. I consider it a sign that I spend way too much time using it. To kick off getting back into the swing of blogging, I bring you an artist spotlight.

I like to pretend that I’m pretty green and socially conscious. I have the very best intention to support the little guy and to use chemical free products. Let’s face it, though, I’m not made of money. I have a crappy retail job and I sell handmade goods–I’m not fortune 500 or a Bobo.

I do, however, have an amazing love of handmade soap. Up until a month or two ago, I had an appreciation for handmade soap (I’d made melt and pour soap before, and I had bought a few bars of soap from Etsy sellers that were all right–they made me feel good enough about my purchase, that is, but they didn’t wow me). Then I met Savor.

This is probably the tamest of all Savor soaps, but it was my first purchase, so it holds a special place in my heart. I’d been stalking her shop for awhile, waiting for the right one to pop up, but then I became in dire need of new soap, and had to make a fast choice. I’d been searching other shops as well, but I kept getting called back to Savor. I had to pounce, and pounce I did. There were very few bars left in her shop, and this one sounded the most appetizing. Honestly, I have never, ever been happier with a bar of soap. It almost makes showering enjoyable (as many may not know, I truly despise showering, and if I don’t have an absolute reason to do it, I won’t).

Now I find myself almost unable to wait until this bar of soap is gone. I currently have 8 bars of savor soap in my favorites on etsy, and all have sold. I refuse to delete them, though, because I just keep hoping she’ll list more of that kind.

For instance: Black Cherry Sundae


and Chocolate Cardamom

These soaps are true works of art. I often go to Savor’s shop just to drool. It’s always interesting to see what she has come up with!

PS: After checking out her shop again, almost all my favorites are back in stock.  Now let’s hope they’ll be there when I need new soap!

This blog is on hold until further notice. My computer is ill, and the boyfriend can’t work on it for while. Basically I can do everything except internet. Firefox and IE pretty much bring my computer to a screeching halt.
Let’s hope this sorts out quickly and cheaply!
