"Hi, my name is Sheri and have always loved arts and crafts. Now that most of my kids are in college I have more time to "perfect" my craft.

I have taken classes at Kendall College of Art and Design, including watercolors and drawing.

I live in Grand Rapids, MI and continue to create and expand.

I love making lip balms with nourishing natural ingredients, no scent if requested since my son went through chemo and nothing helped heal his chapped lips, except my balm!! It is because most lip balm , chap stick etc. even the so called "natural" ones have alcohol in them, so you keep having to buy their product!

I also love making natural soaps,drawing, painting,paper making, music, gardening and generally being outdoors since Michigan summers seem to be our shortest season!

My before mentioned son Daniel really is the one that got me into art again. We learned to not take life for granted when he was diagnosed with Leukemia at age 12. He is now 15and in remission! He has found his talent in art, thanks to a great art teacher that saw his potential and entered him into the Scholastic Competition which he won. He just started his site on ETSY :

where he sells original paintings and photography ( which he won honorable mention in black and white digital).

PLUS our new joint venture in making snowboarding, wool and other warm "up-cycled" hats that don't cost and arm and a leg!

Our new new shop is called:

Why buy homemade soap and not store bought synthetic "detergent?"

Not many people even know what soap really is. Several of the cleansing bars that you buy at the store, for example, are detergents, and not soaps at all. They are called syndet bars, or synthetic detergent bars. They are made from synthesized chemicals and are usually much harsher than soap. Detergents contain petroleum distillates rather than oil. On the other hand, true soap is made from natural oils (such as olive, coconut and palm) and is a gentle cleansing product more appropriate for use on skin than detergent and much more mild than detergents. Hand made soap retains extra glycerin, known to soften the skin naturally. Glycerin is one of the best known humecants (attracts moisture to the skin). It is often extracted during the process of manufacturing commercially made soap, then sold as a valuable by-product."

Sheri is extremely creative with her soap scents. Who ever wins my giveaway is going to love their prizes from Sheri's Soap Opera!!!

Here are some of her awesome soaps.

Brown Sugar and Fig Goat milk Soap-

I call this 100% goat milk soap "pure luxury" because it is made of organic goats milk, no water added, just pure creamy milk. It makes a great facial as well as body soap and has a rich luxurious lather.

I think you will also love the "brown sugar fig" fragrance which is similar to "Bath and Body Works." It goes great with this soap, not too perfumy, more natural, just like the soap.

Try handmade soap once and you will never go back to store bought "beauty bars" ( made of detergent) again.
Beautifully wrapped in organic wildflower paper, great for gift giving or to keep all to yourself. Enjoy!

Comes in a nice sized 4.5-5 oz. bar, wrapped and labeled.

Strawberry Lemonade-

My cold process handmade Strawberry Lemonade Soap is made of all vegetable ingredients and retains all the skin softening glycerin that is taken out of so many store brands and sold as an expensive by-product.

This is a fun soap too, the top is all vegetable glycerin with a nice strawberry scent and the rest of the soap is cold processed with a yummy lemony scent. Mmmmm so nice. Great lather with nice big bubbles too.

Makes a great gift, nicely wrapped and labeled. You get a nice big full sized bar 5-5.5 oz. And as always my products are IN STOCK, and will be shipped out the day OF or the day AFTER you place your order. Enjoy!

Minty Tea Tree and Lavender Soap-

I just love my cold process Minty Tea Tree and Lavender Soap and I think you will too. A great old-fashioned "wake up" soap with a clean, fresh smell and luxurious lather.

Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils have long been reputed to have tremendous healing and soothing properties. Lavender essential oil has been known to be soothing to dry, itchy skin; calms the mind and eases stress. Lavender eo has been used to treat various skin disorders because of it’s antiseptic and anti-fungal properties. Tea Tree Oil has been used to treat acne, oily skin, rashes. It is used as an antiseptic as well as a general disinfectant.

Made with all vegetable ingredients in small batches to assure freshness. Comes in a nice 4.5 or larger size, wrapped and labeled, great for gift giving.

White Lavender Vanilla Handmade Soap Vegan-

My White Lavender Vanilla Soap has to be my favorite of scents so far. The blend makes it not too strong but lightly scented so you can smell both the lavender and the vanilla.

Made with pure vegetable ingredients, this soap does not use any animal products such as tallow or lard. I use the creamy combination of olive and coconut oils to make this a great lathering soap.

Try handmade soap today, you will never go back to store bought "beauty (detergent) bars" again!

Comes beautifully wrapped in organic wildflower paper.

Made in small batches to assure freshness plus super FAST SHIPPING! I pride myself in great products as well as customer service, it's the way I'd like to be treated.

Sheri's soaps are not only great smelling, but are soooo pretty to look at!! Head over and take a look at Sheri's Soap Opera.

Right now Sheri is offering a free soap saver with every soap purchase.

You will love this store!!
