Even the Grinch caught on to the meaning of Christmas-
"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?" Dr. Seuss~
Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and a New Year full of peace and light....

Recently, the folks over at Tiny Texas Houses hosted an essay contest-the grand prize=a Tiny Texas House of course! Tiny Texas Houses link the future to the past by utilizing materials from salvaged buildings to create new and sustainable tiny houses.Tiny Texas houses are about so much more than the obvious,they are about keeping American craftsmanship and ingenuity alive, self reliance, reclaiming valuable resources,affordability, and kindness to our planet through a more sustainable way of life...

Tierra Verde Handmade Soaps will be participating in the Lubbock Downtown Art Market (DAM) at 1820 Buddy Holly Avenue from 9-3 p.m. The weather promises to be a bit chilly starting out, but come early for the good stuff. I've even heard that Santa will be making an appearance, so you can place your order with Saint Nick himself and then shop handmade and local for your loved ones.
If you should miss picking up some Tierra Verde goodnesss at the Downtown Art Market- don't worry- you can always head on over to Hodge Podge Design at 26th and Boston for a wide range of artisan made Tierra Verde Handmade Soaps and all natural hand balms in Citrus Honey, Lavender Honey and Lemon Honey.

As posted yesterday on my Facebook page- a kind comment that made my day!
"I love your soaps. Every time my husband showers with the vanilla-patchouli in the morning, it makes me smile. I loooove the gentle smell of the patchouli. Very gentle and warm instead of overpowering." ~ SR
Don't forget to leave feedback for your favorite artisans-it can make someones' day. :-))
