Today I'm featuring the shop, Mossy Creek Soap, run by Besteam member Michelle Rhoades. I first met Michelle on Creating the Hive, a fun social site for us crafty types. When Michelle opened her Etsy shop a few months ago, she posted a question on the Hive about promoting her Etsy shop, and I told her about this team, the Best Etsy team ever! :P I am so glad she checked us out and now I want y'all to check her out. As I'm sure you've been able to figure out, Michelle makes and sells soap. She has had her own Mossy Creek Soap site before joining Etsy, so she is an accomplished soap maker with tons of knowledge and experience. Let me show you what I found in her Etsy shop.
Ok, so of course the first item I fell for is....ORANGE, lol. Now, it's not orange flavored, but it is full of grapefruit, coconut, and lime. The perfect soap to take on your next beach vacation. Or to use at home when you just need a mini-get-a-way. Calgon has nothing on Mossy Creek. :) This soap is appropriately named Grapefruit Delight.
Michelle also makes body cream. Oh, I got the munchies while reading the description of this Cocoa Body Butter. ummmmm, milk chocolate whipped body butter. I'll eat just about anything covered in chocolate, but I never thought of rubbing it on myself. LOL.
At Mossy Creek Soaps you can also find great gift items, like this Serenity Creek Basket. Here you'll find soap, a soap mitt, a soap dish, and lotion. Much nicer than those cheapies you'll find at Walmart during the Christmas season. Michelle is a certified handcrafted soapmaker and creates all her items in her studio located in Georgia.
Michelle has a great blog where you can get to know her better, and to learn more about the art of soap making. I love reading the blogs of shops I purchase from, it's nice to get to know the people behind the crafts. If blog reading is not for you, try her facebook page where you can sign up for lessons given at her studio. And don't forget to follow her on twitter to keep up with the latest in the soap world. So click on any highlighted link above to see Mossy Creek Soap for yourself.
