shop handmade - shop local

My personal mantra this year is, "it's going to be a handmade Christmas". But if you're one of the many who simply doesn't get crafty with it, or maybe you just don't have the time to try your hand at knitting a scarf or booties, then why not consider giving the gift of handmade, or local, or both? I bet your neighbors will thank you.
We've been busy at the Sweet Mojo workshop shipping and making more product for shows, (and yes, folks are doing their Christmas shopping with us).... It's been fun, and we love the repeat business that we've been lucky to have!
I'm showing off our Body Oil, as everyone I know is complaining about dry skin since the weather has changed. I love this Body Oil, my friends love this Body Oil and customers want more. It leaves a light satiny sheen, but if you like that heavy-crisco-like-look, well, then I'm happy to report that this stuff isn't for you! We've got it in about 5 of our current scents, but would be glad to whip you up some in your favorite Sweet Mojo scent!

We've got a great deal going on our Sugar Scrub Sampler 15 Pack. Over the summer we thought it would be a great idea for wedding/shower gifts and envisioned boxes of them appearing like sprinkles of candy at garden & spa parties. Now that Christmas is here, we realize the potential they have for being great stocking stuffers and basket fillers or the perfect gift for teachers and friends at the office.

We are excited to announce that I am hosting another Artisans' Trunk Show at the Higher Grounds in Hallowell, Maine. The last one was too much fun, filled with friends, music, art and mimosas. What better way is there to shop for the holidays really?

Regardless of where you live, consider hitting a local craft show, or taking a little time to get on great sites like Etsy and Artfire, I bet you'll be surprised at the talent out there!
xoxo Jes
