New in the Shop: The August 2019 Mug

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Looking for something unique, something hand made, something quirky? Take a look at these mugs as they are made, a different mug every month for the year. Sometimes the decoration will be the main focus of the mug, sometimes a new glaze will be what catches your eye. Either way, one of these twelve mugs is bound to, over the year, capture your heart and call to you. Let it become your go-to morning coffee mug, the mug you hope is clean at the end of the day for some evening tea, the mug you reach for first even when...

Oi, what a week, y'all! In ceramics, I'm talking about all the new things I've released this week (honeycomb and skull ceramics, and the August Mug of the Month) and I'm working on making new ones (and already making restocks!

I'm going to do a special base for this (if it's received well, I'll make it again for GLAM in December). It's a "triple butter" base... Shea butter, mango butter, and cocoa butter. It should have a really good lather and feel...

Are you ready for next week's HaldeCraft update?

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

So... buckle up, y'all! HERE WE GO. There was a soap update, I think last week, and there will be another one Monday - you can find all newly restocked soaps here when they happen. Monday will see the August Mug of the Month, the Van. I...
