IMG_3083The inspiration for our NuMe scents come from SO many different places and we’re super excited to share our NEWEST creation with you.!!   Teri Fezza, a kindred spirit of mine, has been a dear friend for many years.  We’re both Air Force brats – AND PROUD OF IT – both married to kind, Christian men – both Mom’s of great kids – both have busy lives keeping up with family, home and our businesses – AND, once a year, manage to take some time out just for US to sneak away to our little oasis in the North Georgia mountains for a Girls Weekend:):) …{sigh…}…

Teri came to us a while back and wanted to throw an idea out.   She was planning a Ladies Luncheon, for her husband’s business, and wanted a sweet favor just perfect for each of them.  With the luncheon being held around Valentine’s Day, she was thinking:  ‘Who doesn’t like Chocolate Covered Strawberries?”  She had the idea of taking the rich chocolate of our Mocha Mint Coffee Scrub and pairing it with the fresh, sweet scent of our Strawberry Seed – creating a luscious combination of Chocolate Covered Strawberries !!  The marriage of these two scents couldn’t be more perfect:)

NEW Chocolate Covered Strawberries

As a sweet deal to you, the Chocolate Covered Strawberries is now ON SALE for you and those you love:)  At the special price of $6.95ea. for a regular bar & $2.05 for mini’s, you can send your Sweet a special treat – and of course, tuck a few away for yourself too.  If you’ve placed an online order with us before, you’ll know that each order is packaged with thoughtfulness and care, sending secret surprises along with each order.

The Fezza's: Robert, Teri, Matthew & Megan

The Fezza’s: Robert, Teri, Matthew & Megan

SEE !! !!  They’re such a sweet family.  THANKS TERI !!  For being such a dear friend and giving us inspiration for this lovely NEW scent.  We hope all the ladies at the luncheon love it as much as we do.

-Marie.

photo-2So as many of you know,…..when it comes to working in our new soap shop Marie tends to be the early-bird…..Dianne is the night owl, it’s just as simple as that.  Marie is a planner, very artistically organized, and tries very hard to stay on schedule with work, two kids, a cute dog, and a hubby. Her family looks to her as the center of the universe in all things family & home related :)

I, on the other hand, am less of a planner, Lord knows less organized, and not a morning person to say the least.  I am an empty nester, but the most important part of my life is still family and my two beautiful granddaughters that I simply adore! To be my happiest self, I need them near me often. Luckily, I am blessed to see and keep them regularly! :)

But when it comes to the business, Marie & I both work many long, hard hours. I am more of a fly by the seat of my pants, waiting on last minute inspiration when it comes to photo shoots for the website, Facebook postings, booth layouts, sales, giveaways…..whatever feels right. Often, I get excited about it in the midnight hour!  It’s almost like I can’t preplan too much or I will have total creative block. And “usually” I am very happy with the results if I let go and trust my creative instincts.  unnamed

Somehow, the combination of our two styles makes for an awesome team! ALL that to say………..a couple of weeks ago I was working late in the soap shop all by myself and I got an idea. (Emmy had come in the day before and got us caught up on soap-making). So, I figured it would be a good time to “play” around with a new Halloween soap scent! (Which, by the way, wasn’t planned by me or Marie).  I just love to create new scents and give new looks to our soaps.  Anyway…..I get all excited and start jotting down my ideas,… looking to see if we have the ingredients needed to try an experiment, and we do!  I noticed outside that the trees were starting to bend a little, the wind was kicking up and debris was starting to hit the windows and doors a little bit.

Then I heard thunder, the skies lit up with lighting, and I heard some
photo-4strange creaks and bumps around me that were kinda spooky!  But I kept knocking away at my new idea and…  BOOM!  Just as the midnight hour came upon me, I poured into the mold our very 1st batch of Witch’s Brew!  I stood back amidst the mess of bowls and containers and black glitter on my face and said….ok,….”I think It’s gonna be good!”  It’s cream colored with ribbons of mysterious black sparkles within it and topped with black glitter, (don’t worry the cosmetic glitter washes right off your hands). It has a lovelyphoto-3 eerie, musky scent.  A beautiful bewitching Halloween soap! Perfect for a Hostess gift this time of year!  So in honor of Fall, Halloween, and the wonderful month of October……we would like to announce Witch’s Brew! Available on our website as well as all of our Fall favorites: Pumpkin Spice, Country Clove, and Spiced Orange!  And just to ‘stir the cauldron’, so to speak, we have hidden a coupon code in this post (find and unscramble the bold letters) valid this weekend only for 20% off all of our website products!

We love this time of year so much and we know you do too! So enjoy the hayrides, mums, pansy planting, fall scene making, long walks, pumpkin patches, fall baking, bon fires, and cozy blanket talks on your front porch over hot chocolate.  It’s all an amazing blessing from God…..try to slow down, worry less, and enjoy your family. :)

Before

We are super excited to share with everyone that Marie & I have finally moved our soap business into a real work shop!  We now lease a small space in Cumming, Georgia. It’s a little tucked back off the street but perfect for our soap making, order fulfilment center!  After 3 years of making all of our soap out of our homes, we now have a dedicated work space to better serve our customers!  While it worked for a while creating our soap out of our homes to fill all the retail and wholesale orders, it finally came to the point that we needed a central dedicated space to work under one roof, to streamline our process!  Now it’s nothing fancy mind you, but it works great for us and we are very proud and thankful it has come together as nicely as it has!  As you can see it’s come a long way from it’s beginnings to now!  I have to give a huge thank you to my husband Larry, for all the hard work he did building from scratch just about everything we ask for to have the set up we needed for our soap making workshop. Another special shout out to David (Marie’s hubby), for moving and hauling crazy heavy things, shopping for  appliances we needed, help with build out and always having our backs on the legal side of things!  We also want to say thank you to my son-in-law Ben for finding the space and sharing it with us, (Ben’s business Engine Industries is on the other side of the left wall here! Ben also helped in our build out and Shanda (my daughter), helped us get organized with signs and labeling!  So as you can see it was a family affair for sure!  P1070412IMG_7090

While we are not actually open to the public (we  mostly use the space for making soap and body butter and other NuMe products as well as order fulfillment and shipping), we will be having some days coming up where we occasionally open our doors to everyone who would like to stop by and see our new space as well as shop to their hearts content!

More on that soon I promise, stayed tuned! We thank all of you for your support and encouragement it means the world to us!  We have a lot cooking right now, so stay tuned for more info on events, shows, end of summer sales, contest and so much more we can’t wait to share with you!worktable2
