Revisited -> mini moo card book

My first attempt at binding moo cards is posted in a blog post here: mini moo card book

I took that one apart and started over. I used embroidery floss this time. I didn't separate it, but used it all as one thread. I used the tickets that come with moo card orders as front and back covers. It's a silly little thing, really. But fun to make and look at. :)

new look to an old favorite

Vetiver Balsam - vetiver balsamSmokey vetiver with just a hint of slightly sweet peru balsam (essential oils) combine to give this soap an earthy, faintly musky yet clean fragrance. White clay makes for rich, dense and stable suds. The scent is considered a masculine blend, but in our experience, men & women like it equally. - Please note that this soap does look different, it is the same formula and scent. I just needed a change.

Ingredients: Olive Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, Coconut Oil, Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Rice Bran Oil, Balsam Peru, Vetiver Oil, White Kaolin Clay

Augeries of Innocence (excerpt)

Every night and every morn
Some to misery are born,
Every morn and every night
Some are born to sweet delight.

Some are born to sweet delight,
Some are born to endless night.

William Blake
