Check out my new soap packaging!!! There is a special secret on the back. Going on sale at Funky Stuff in Worcester sunday. I call this collection, The Sea Shanty Collection. These are perfect as beach wedding favors or as Christmas presents. I have had a great time working on fragrances based on actual beaches in different parts of NE, and working on packaging for once has been wonderful. No hair pulling or difficulty. I worked with a designer for the first time ever. Because I am great at soap bases and fragrance mixing but for some reason me and paper don’t really mix well. Never have. Robin, over at Kaz Zucker Design And Marketing, has been a joy and a gift to work with. I couldn’t have made this happen so well without her help. Working with Robin, has been the most amazing first experience working with a designer of packaging. I learned a great deal.
This series of soap was inspired by New England’s coast and key regions, 2 of which can be found in MA and one of which is located in Maine. For more information than this, you will have to purchase the soap for the secret on the back. So that you can more thoroughly enjoy the product and it’s inspiration. This product is really….. (pardon the pun you won’t understand till you see the back,) quite an adventure.
This product has been a 36 year life time in the making. It is full of my love for New England and her place on the big old Atlantic Ocean. A special homage to the home I left and finally returned to after seeing so much of a big beautiful world. Each place interesting with some unique wisdom and way of life all it’s own. I couldn’t have become the person I am today without going to all those different places. But coming home… How I have missed the smell of these places, the smell of lilacs mingling with the ocean in Maine, the fragrance of the beach roses of Cape Cod which is perhaps my favorite fragrance int he world, and the smell of Plum Island in Newburyport on the North Shore…. The Wisteria blooming right along the beach of the barrier reef that the ocean takes back to itself more and more every storm season carrying houses away with it.
There are many secrets here in NE, from haunted places, to haunting places…. Secrets trapped under the dark waters of the Atlantic all along our coast line. Secrets lost to the history of this region the oldest in the country. But perhaps my favorite secret, is the secret on the back of my little soaps created to share some of the beauty and the essence of my home as a statement of gratitude to the world for sharing so much of itself with me in each and every wonderful and wonderous place I have had the good fortune to visit or live for a time.
