I love the transition from the old year to the new; both personally and professionally. Growing up, New Years eve morning is when the first of the ritual activities started. At our place-setting for breakfast, our lead sculpture (more on this later) from last New years day would be waiting. These wo...

Last week this arrived... A translated version of my book in Dutch. This is now the fourth language it has been translated to, following German, French, and Estonian. I feel honored to have my work respected enough to warrant a translation!

I have decided to have an end of season clearance sale on soap. I will have a new collection of soap going forward and would like to clear out existing stock. For now, this is for in-person sales only, however once the markets are completely over, I may consider doing this online as well. Stay tuned...

PS... I posted earlier today that this was the last market of the season. It IS the last official market, however produce is still being harvested, so there is a chance that there will be another unofficial market next week.

Today is our last Riverwest farmers market of the season. I have plenty of large jars of honey, so stock up for the winter.

My favorite day of the summer... Start off the day at the Whitefish Bay Farmers Market and then hurry back to my neighborhood to set up at Boulevard Bash. Just wish mother nature was in a better mood! I'll be there rain or shine.

I will be at the Whitefish Bay Farmers Market until it rains. Come early!

Argh! It's raining and I am getting ready to set up at the Whitefish Bay Farmers Market. We sell rain or shine... Come out and make it worth our while.....oh, and I finally have been pollen in stock.

I decided not to do today's farmers market in Riverwest. Although it sounds like there will be a break in rain, they are also predicting strong winds. See everyone next week.

All you last minute shoppers....
The Beehive Alchemy Pop-up shop is officially OPEN...

Since all my organized events are over until sometime in the new year, I decided to set up my goodies in my currently vacant upstairs flat. So far it has only been my word of mouth, but now I have things pretty much set up, so I can spread the word.


I do ask that you set up an appointment. The best thing is to go to my website homepage and click on the Appointment button. I set some suggested hours, but I am open to other times.

My perfumed oils are now up on my website...…/…

In the days before synthetics, there were natural perfumes. We have resurrected this ancient art with our line of 100% natural perfumes made with only the highest quality essences.Those who are unfamiliar with 100% natural perfumes will be amazed at the “story” the perfume will tell. The top notes a…

I am thinking of hosting a hands-on workshop on making rolled beeswax candles.

For a $35 fee you will learn how to make all sorts of rolled candles. Fee would include enough wax for four taper candles. I will have additional wax sheets (variety of colors) available at a nominal fee for all sorts of candles like the ones shown below.

Not sure on dates yet, but I would definitely like to do the first one before Thanksgiving. Any interest? If so, what day/time works best for you?
