Recent and Upcoming Shows

We had an awesome time last weekend at Little Balkans Days, in beautiful downtown Pittsburg, Kansas. We handed out lots of business cards, so if you're visiting this website today looking to restock on soaps, spa salt bars, sugar scrubs or anything else Peaceacre, all you have to do is email me at We started down the path of selling products through the Peaceacre Facebook page, but that really hasn't panned out, so just send me an email and I'll be happy to create your custom order and ship it to you wherever you are!

This coming weekend, Saturday, September 7th, I will be an exhibiting artist at The Not So Square Arts and Literary Festival in Mt. Vernon, Missouri. I hope you'll come see me! This is an arts festival, so the usual Peaceacre soaps etc won't be there. But I'll have lots of paintings on display and for sale, and a selection of my handmade jewelry, felted items, etc. You can find more info about the festival at For a sneak peek at some of my paintings, click here!

Our next full show, featuring the full Peaceacre line of handmade soaps, scrubs, hip BoHo items and goodies galore will be Saturday, September 28th at the Pioneer Harvest Arts and Crafts Festival in Fort Scott, Kansas. The time is 9:00 AM till 5:00 PM, at the Bourbon County Fairgrounds, at the corner of 23rd and Horton Streets. See you there!

Columbus Rocks!

Despite the cold, drizzly weather, Chris and I had a blast Saturday at the Columbus, KS Columbus Day Hot Air Balloon Regatta! Unfortunately, the biting north wind kept the balloons grounded, but there were so many cool activities going on nobody was bored, that’s for sure. No balloons overhead? No worries - how about watching a guy juggle machetes and eat fire? Or maybe just sit back and watch the longest small town parade we've ever seen anywhere (well over 90 minutes)... The real party was on the street where Peaceacre was set up between a group of energetic and fun young foreign exchange students and three snappily dressed young businessmen from California. We met so many fantastic people from Columbus who stopped by our booth to reminisce about fringe jackets and boots, tie dye, and the good old days of hippiedom. Wow. This is why I love to do festivals. So many great people to meet! We feel like we made some real friends in just one short day in Columbus. We will definitely be back! Thank you, Columbus!

Rosemary Hot Oil Infusion

Rosemary is a staple in most herb gardens. This plant is known for its stimulating effect on mind and body. It is antiseptic, analgesic and energizing. The therapeutic properties of leaves are most easily extracted by heating the material in a carrier oil. If kept in a cool, dark place, infused oils will last up to one year. You can use your rosemary hot infusion oil to reduce muscular aches and pains. It also makes an invigorating massage or bath oil.

Here's an easy recipe (makes one pint):

One cup fresh rosemary leaves

 8 oz sweet almond oil

Gently bruise the rosemary leaves to extract as much plant material as possible. Put the oil and the rosemary in a heatproof glass bowl, and place over a pan of simmering water. Heat the mixture for two hours at a very low heat. Strain and store in a glass bottle. How easy is that!

 Watch this space for more rejuvenating recipes for body and soul - coming soon!

What is a Spa Salt Bar?

Do you love how your skin feels after spending time in the ocean? Smooth, shining, glowing, healthy looking skin, A Peaceacre Spa Salt bar is not an ordinary bar of soap. It's a solid salt scrub that gently exfoliates your skin while leaving a milky white lotion behind. Peaceacre spa salt bars are all handmade, hand cut, and made in small batches using specialty clays that help to cleanse and nourish your skin, leaving it silky smooth. This soap has a creamy lather because of its high coconut oil content. This special bar will last and last. The best way to use a spa salt bar is to run hot water over the bar, rub it into your washcloth to create lather, then sooth your skin the natural way.
