Welcome to Blacksheep Bodyworks and Lunatic Laine
We have two new members to welcome today -- first is Yvonne from Westville, NS, who runs Blacksheep Bodyworks. From her shop announcement: "We've been making soap for the last 12 years now and over that time have seen many soapers come and go. We're still here because we care about our customers, our product and have done the research needed to find only the best quality ingredients." The soaps look yummy -- above is her Mermaids Delight!
Second is Lunatic Laine, run by Mary and her daughter Hannah in Rothesay, NB. They create funky, upcycled toys with a distinctly modern edge. (See the PMS Warning Doll, above!) From their profile: "I wool hunt and then kindly dismantle and reconfigure. I don't use patterns. Each piece has personality and declares its design. My daughter Hannah, helps too. She sees bunnies in the air and has a fondness for platypuses. They calm teenage angst, she says and don't hog the bed. Together, with our twenty skinny fingers we create toys we hope people like."
Please join me in welcoming these great members to APST!
