Goodies From CR Nest!


I have met some wonderful people online-people I'm ashamed to say I probably would not be friends with if I didn't make soap. It's not because of who they are or where they are, but it's because I am notoriously shy. Yes, I am. The web allows me to be anonymous in a sense, but it also allows my true personality to shine. If we were all in a group setting, I would hardly say 2 words other than Hello and Good-bye. But I digress...

One on my newest friends is Courtney from Courtney Robyn's "Nest." I love her! She's such a sweetheart and truly supportive of her online friends:) Well, I didn't know Court had a FB Fan Page ) because I sometimes read my favorite blogs with blinders on). I can't even remember how the whole thing played out, but I notices she only had 99 fans, and I like even numbers, so I decided to become her 100th fan (I would have fanned her regardless). So I went on FB to brag about it, and I won some goodies! Now isn't that lovely? Yack, yack, yack...Here's the lowdown on the loot:

  1. A full-sized lip balm called Honey Bee-and it's made with emu oil. Me likey! It smells like fresh honey. This will go in my office desk drawer because I'm eating salty peanuts all day so my lips are constantly dried out...
  2. Brown Sugar Scrub Balls. Now that's original! And oh-my-gosh, they smell like cinnamon donut holes. I wanna eat them-seriously!
  3. Lily of the Valley CP soap slice. Okay, I'm not a floral lover, but lily of the valley gets a pass! This one's made with lard, shea butter, and avocado oils-loves it! I've liked this scent for a couple of years now after getting a sample from another soap maker. I even bought the fragrance with the intention of making a soap, but it never materialized. Now, I must revisit that idea...
  4. Green Clover and Aloe Castile Soap slice. Fresh and delicious! This is an old throwback Bath & Body Works scent, and I love it! 
Thanks Courtney! It was a wonderful, delightful, and inspiring surprise:)

That is so sweet of Courtney! What a lovely surprise :) I'm so glad to be a part of such a creative and sweet community.

What great gifts! You are such a sweetheart yourself, I'm not surprised she sent you treats!

I so know what you mean about being able to be more "outgoing" online. I can act the part of the outgoing, confident person at work, but put in a party situation or other group situation...no way, hate it!

Yum, yum, yum! Courtney definitely is a sweetheart - and she makes some pretty awesome goodies!

P.S. I would call myself an introvert too! ;)
