New! Soap Packs: Ready & Wrapped

Ollo Sudsters!

What’s been stewing in the soap kitchen?! Baskets! Crates! And yes, of course more soap!

We’ve been getting crafty! Oh, how we love all things soap, soap related, and soap adjacent, but the season has the farm hands hooked on ribbon, felt, and fabric, oh, my! We’ve mixed and matched flavors of bar soap and shower gel, added a plush little ornament, and decked it all out in baskets and wooden crates ready for holiday gift giving. Aren’t we the best?! We toiled with hot glue scorched hands because there ain’t no holiday like a handmade holiday.

Need something for white elephant parties, host/hostess gifts, baby showers, a “just because I wanted to get you” gift, or a “I just don’t know what to get you” gift? We have it! And feel free to follow our lead and just buy one for yourself. Since all of our ingredients are made without chemicals or harmful additives, you can be sure they are safe for friends and family as well as the Earth.

You’ll be doing even more good knowing another thing: The wood crates used to package the soap are not just ordinary crates. They are handmade in the USA at the Work Training Center by adults with disabilities. Each crate sold helps them live an independent life. If you happen to purchase one in the near future, this is our thank you in advance for your help.

To us, the best things come in 3’s and wrapped in glitter laden ribbon. Pick up your packs and baskets at Beatniks in the Heights. There is more coming from the soap lab, but for now back to the craft cave!

Sincerely,

Soapy McSoapface

P.S. As always, we would love to hear from you and get some feedback. Have a favorite flavor? Suggestion? Random thoughts about Batman? We want to hear it.

P.P.S. Stay tuned because we have much planned for 2012. Well, if the world is still here, that is…

We Went to a Riot

Craft fairs are upon us in a big way! The handmade holiday has gotten bigger and bigger each year and I smile as I glance over at the calendar with each weekend scribbled in all the way through December. The Farmecologie Lab is mostly an attendee this year, but we were pleased to be apart of a the Austin Craft Riot Goodie Bag Giveaway at their holiday fair. The two day craft event opened each day with 25 totes filled with free handmade items given to the first visitors through the door.

We supplied the cotton totes and wrapped 2 ounce bars in special gingham packaging to get a bit more festive.

I am dismayed (completely) to say due to traffic and unexpected weekend construction set back the schedule and alas there is no goodie bag here. Sigh.

Also the latest in Farmecologie news is our new totes made from recycled plastic bottles. We wanted a tote as Earth friendly as our soap.
