Enter to win handmade soaps and lotion from S.H. Farms - ends 3/3/16

We've got some goodies to share today! 

Love all-natural bath and beauty products? Winter weather drying you out? Do you like supporting independent businesses and enjoy handmade items? If you say "yes", then this is the place for you!

I first encountered Sweet Harvest Farms fragrant soaps at local (Tampa, Florida) shows and weekend markets. I bought a few bars and loved the creamy, texture. Their soaps not only smell great, they also leave you feeling clean, without that sticky film some other handmade soaps leave behind. When I found out that the owner, CJ, is also a fellow member of the Tampa Bay Etsy Crew, I knew it was time to share the love. 

From the S.H.Farms online shop:

Welcome to Sweet Harvest Farms where we offer all natural and organic Handmade SoapBody LotionAll Natural DeodorantTooth Powder and more. C.J., of Sweet Harvest Farms, has formulated her own unique bath & body recipes that are both luxurious for your skin & kind to the earth.

A small, but thriving cottage start-up, Sweet Harvest Farms creates cold processed soaps that are made entirely by hand, in small batches, to ensure quality control. Using only the highest quality organic oils, clays and herbs on the market, C.J.'s products have become highly sought after by health conscience individuals. Sweet Harvest Farms also has a line of all natural/organic dog soapFlea Powder and ointment for your dog as well.

Illustration Friday - Mystery

Red Handed
Sharing an oldie for today's Illustration Friday prompt - Mystery. Back in '09 my charcoal drawing, scanned hand print and a fingerprint were combined for an Artarazzi challenge. The fingerprint was provided by Artarazzi (who, sadly, doesn't seem to exist anymore - a shame as they always had intriguing art contests). Click here if you'd like to visit the original post

Feeling inspired? Upload your "mystery" piece to your favorite platform before 2/12 and then link it up over at IllustrationFriday.com
