100th Fan Giveaway!


I’ve been a very busy little crafter lately.  I have been getting my Bramble Berry soap swap ready and sent off, then I made 25 samples for the June Out Of The Box Sampler (you can find them on etsy), then I sponsored 2 soaps for a 3000 fan giveaway. whew!

But what makes me the happiest is all the people who are interested in my crafts.  It really makes a girl feel good.  I have officially over 100 fans at my facebook page (  So let’s have a giveaway kids!  You could be the lucky winner of this:

This is over 11 oz of sugar scrub cubes in a variety of floral scents.  Take one or two in the shower with you, get them wet, smoosh them in your hand and use them to slough off any dead skin.  This bag is unmarked but is made with a clear mp base (from, white sugar, grapeseed oil, fragrance oil, and various colorants.  So how do you win.  Go to my etsy page: look around click on some of my items, check them out, then come back here and tell me what you would get if you had $15.00 to spend.  I will pick a random winner on Wednesday at 9pm (central time) and will post it here.

EDIT: If the soapyjoes facebook page gets 200 fans by Wednesday at 9pm Central Time I will draw two names.  The first name will win the sugar scrub cubes and the second name will win a super secret gift from me 🙂

All of my supplies are ready to go:
Here’s a few things I have made:
The craft show went rather well and if I would have thought to bring my camera I could have shown all of you how wonderful my display looked.  I am going to do a craft show this weekend as well at the Medina Entertainment Center in Minnesota on Saturday.  I will try to remember to bring my camera so I can show you what my set up looks like.
