Living With Essential Oils: April Picks

Living With Essential Oils: April Picks - Lemon, Geranium & Lemongrass Oils


Oh dear, April is getting away on us. It’s already half done! Our last couple weeks have been bogged down by a chest cold running through the house and I seem to have gotten worse than anyone else. And the snow. Oh the snow. It’s the gift that keeps on giving this year and we’d really appreciate if it would just stop, or at least turn into rain. Hard to be motivated for spring. But IT IS technically spring! So here’s a quick little essential oils inspiration for {what’s left} of this month!

Spring blooms

Button Hair Combs by Bubblegum Sass

In my effort to purge, clean, and organize everything (from house to online shop), I FINALLY got around to listing a whole pile of “new” product. In all honesty, I made these beauties well over a year ago (almost two, really). They journeyed to a couple of small shows, but then ended up being tucked away in a cupboard, waiting for their time to shine.

That time, apparently, is now! Out with the old, in with the “new-ish”. I’ve been a bit of a busy bee photographing & listing all of these (35 in total with more to come down the road). It is my pleasure to officially introduce them to the shop and my lovely followers AND include them in the last of this month’s sales!!

Pink and Champagne Hair Comb by Bubblegum Sass

From now until Sunday, March 24, you can snag a button hair clip or comb at 50% off! Oh boy! I’m really keen for folks to give them a try! I made my first scrap floral hair comb a few years ago to wear to my brother’s wedding. Loved how easy they were to wear & how they dressed up the simplest hair-dos!

The button hair clips come from that warm, fuzzy place in my heart where I keep my absolute love of buttons. Simple, cute, modern, and colorful. Did I mention the FREE shipping for the button hair clips within Canada? That’s a little bonus. Both the clips and combs are perfect for spring!

Thanks to everyone who has supported the Spring Cleaning Sale so far!! Excited to share other new products with you in the coming months (which means I should get back to the sewing room and fire-up the creative juices).

Still cleaning

Day of the Dead Coin Purse by Bubblegum SassYes, the purging, cleaning and organizing continues at our house and in the shop too! Thanks to those of you who’ve helped me out so far and given some of the purses new homes last week. Much appreciated!

There is a lovely new sale on this week. All small purselettes are 20% off. This includes the collection of Day of the Dead coin purses! I never know what to call these little “zip pouches” (such a generic term). They are so handy for lots of things, not just for coin. I tend to use them more like purse organizers, to keep all the little things in that end up at the bottom of my purse (hello, lip gloss). Others have used them as small cases for their point-and-shoot cameras. And yes, you can keep your coin, cash & cards in them too. Lots of great fabrics to choose from! Sale ends March 17th.

Spring cleaning madness

Mango Sorbet Purse by Bubblegum SassMarch is often a month when spring cleaning kicks in for a lot of people. I’ve been afflicted with purging, cleaning, and organizing since the beginning of January! It started out of necessity while coming to terms with finally selling my big bro’s house. Then it seemed to follow me home, where my best little helper, Sam, and I tackled various corners, nooks, and drawers. Now it has spilled over into my Etsy shop!!

Why bother to clean out the shop? Well, besides the good feeling that comes from finding loving homes for my product, I’m super keen to make room for all the NEW product that has been sneaking into the shop, bit by bit. There’s also the dream of a more curated collection for the shop. Of course the best part about cleaning out my Etsy shop is that all of YOU get to reap some awesome benefits!

So, starting today and running the next couple of weeks, there will be some huge sales in the shop! I’ll keep you posted on upcoming sales details on the blog and the FB page.

To kick things off, from today till March 10th, ALL of the medium purselettes in the shop are 50% OFF!! Yep, you read that right. I’ve discontinued making these purses, so this is the last chance to purchase one through the shop. Many of these are OOAK (that means one-of-a-kind). They are a simple purse, not too big, but just big enough to be very versatile. I use mine to tote around my current crochet projects. Others have used them as lunch bags and camera bags. A lucky little girl even received one to carry her ballet shoes in! Too cute!
