Fair Ivy 2013: Sneak Peek!

Monday was the deadline for the Fair Ivy 2013 Contest and we are energized by all of the creative bath and body products that came in. I’ve had so much fun opening up the packages and being able to smell, feel and try out all the fabulous handmade items. We’re in the middle of choosing which items we’ll be sending along to Fair Ivy (and we’re announcing them next week!) but we didn’t think it was fair to keep all of this eye candy to ourselves.

    I’m a bit late in the commenting but I must say I just love the Sudsie Q and Sweet Soap Bakery soaps/packaging! But of course, I have never seen so many unique and gorgeous packaging styles all in one place! Mind blown!

      I’m totally with you, Katie! All of the entries that we received gave me so much soapy inspiration that I know I’ll be coming back to this post time and time again to check them out. =)

      That’s what I thought too! All the soaps and bath & body products that were entered were just amazing and I know it was so hard for Anne-Marie to pick the finalists. Keep your eyes peeled on the blog today when we announce them. =)

    Wow! These packaging designs are so pretty and creative!

    I havent perfected my packaging technique but these pictures and artists definitely give me someting to strive for!

    Wow! These are all so nice! So hard to choose. Even the packaging is fantastic. Makes me want to go into soap making but I guess I’d rather leave that to the experts who have the flair for creativity as well :)
