At last!!! After an almost two-year hiatus, I have opened my Etsy shop again! As stated in a previous blog post, I did a mini trial run of my DIY Spa Kit for Foot Scrubs in 2015, and soon sold all of it, even gaining a couple of five-star reviews from happy customers. ūüôā Unfortunately, due to personal reasons, I then had to take a break from production.

I am now back, hopefully for good, with a couple of other products and possibly a few more in the pipeline (depending on how this takes off) for 2018. Please be patient and bear with me…I am still very new to running a business, and can only manage a small volume of stock. This really just started out as a hobby, so any helpful suggestions would be welcome!

The main item I am selling now is the DIY Spa Kit which can be personalised with a gift tag. Not only can the Lavender and Peppermint Foot Scrub be customised to your (or the recipient’s) preference, you will also be learning about making your own natural beauty remedies in the process.

The kit contains everything required to make two jars of foot scrub, along with a recipe and a detailed explanation of how each ingredient can contribute to your well-being. If you have bought one of these and require the instructions in large print, please contact me and I will send you a copy.

Another product I have added to my shop is the¬†Chalkboard Door Hanger Gift Set. I made one for my daughter awhile back and thought it’d make quite a unique present or stocking filler. This would probably appeal more to children, though teenagers might appreciate the novelty too.

The set includes both white and coloured chalk, and sponge eraser in a selection of style and colours…Perfect for doodling a warning to potential intruders, or for those times when you just need a bit of peace and quiet!

However, this Christmas deal won’t last long, so take advantage of it before the sleigh bells start ringing!

This is my first attempt at a homemade beauty kit which I’m hoping will¬†turn out to be¬†a great birthday gift for a friend.¬†As a part-time Reiki Healer, she has an interest in natural therapy and all other related products. Plus, being¬†a Graphic Designer like myself, she also enjoys the creative process and has an eye for the unique. The idea is¬†to make her something which would combine both these qualities, and as she’s been under a lot of stress lately, a personalised¬†spa set seems¬†ideal.

If it all works out, I might make some more and see if I can get some interest on Etsy. The product’s at concept stage so there’s¬†quite a few bits to iron out, but so far so good, even if I do say so myself!

There’s still lots to do¬†and much testing required to get the kit right. I made some mistakes with the packaging. Bottles too large, may have to change the label design, and also still not quite decided how far to go with the personalisation option. As I’m funding this myself, things are going a bit slow so I’m taking it one step at a time.

Luckily, my hubby David has been a great help, though he¬†did catch me off-guard a few times with the Dragon’s Den treatment…but I guess it’s better to fall flat on my face now than later on!
